    Yep:

    IFT: TYPE(dragon); ATK:2; DMG:2

    See the [creature type] entry in the conditional modifiers section of the effects Wiki page: http://www.fantasygrounds.com/wiki/i...onal_Operators

    This will only cover actions that are targeted on a creature (attacks, damage, etc.). It won't cover skill checks.

    This reminds me to get back to work on my Action Library module.

    Thanks Trenloe, didn't look like it was working at first i.e. wasn't seeing the bonus added to the roll but it ended up just dropping the AC of the target by two. The website said you could do more than one creature type in the same one, would you just separate those by a ; ?

    They are comma separated. But test this thoroughly as there was an issue with multiple types in the 5E ruleset in 3.1.2 (fixed in the upcoming 3.1.3). If it doesn't work, do a new effect for each different type.

    I have to ask because I see a lot of links going to different places. The effects.zip file in the first post is the latest and works with pf ruleset or is there a different one I need to get. Sorry its very confusing what extra mods I need to make everything work correctly.
    Thanks.

    One step further - how about compiling them into a module so that they can be available in the "Effects" list window within the FG campaign? The list can be searched for text and the effects can be entered in the form <Name>; <usual effect list> to allow ordering and searching on the condition/effect needed.

    The example condition.mod available here: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forum...96&postcount=5 was created as GM only (the data XML file within is db.xml) but if the module created has this file as common.xml and the GM lets the players have access through "module activation" in the campaign then everyone will be able to see the effects in the effects list window.

    To create this module it will require a bit of XML editing as effects aren't covered by the usual /export command. But, I think it would be worth the effort to do this so that it can be a reusable reference effects module available to GMs and Players.
    Morning Trenloe,
    Ok we have been playing with this so we could have better control with buffs and things in game. This all worked great using the effects module, but was not really 100% what we wanted so I continued playing around. I went to the aid spell inside the game and put it on a character. Then went into the spell and added a effect (just added ATK : 1 morale for testing only I know its not the full aid effect). This added the effect to the spell and now the effect can be applied from the spell in the character sheet all worked great.
    Now I don't want to have to do this to every spell every time a character adds a spell to his list. So i kept digging.
    I exported the character and looked at the xml to see how it was formatted. I seen the actions area and knew that was the effect. So just out of curiosity I copied the <actions> to </actions> pasted it in the spell AID in my spell module and reloaded everything. Added the new Aid spell to the character and wala the effect is there and works.

    Code:
    <aid>
    								
    		
    		
    		
    			<name type="string">Aid</name>
    			<school type="string">Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-Affecting]</school>

    				</id-00002>
    			</actions>
    							
    			<description type="formattedtext"><p><i>Aid</i> grants the target a +1 morale bonus on attack rolls and saves against fear effects, plus temporary hit points equal to 1d8 + caster level (to a maximum of 1d8+10 temporary hit points at caster level 10th).</p></description>
    			<shortdescription type="string">+1 on attack rolls, +1 against fear, 1d8 temporary hp +1/level (max +10).</shortdescription>
    		</aid>
    What this does.
    Now my Cleric on his turn can Selected the party members he wants to Aid / Cast Aid (informing the DM he wants to Aid those players / Then press the effects button and the effect is applied to all the characters . The Characters now have a +1 attack effect when the roll for 1 rnd.
    Just wanted to pass it on.....

    Wait...are you really saying that you can have spell effects in a spells module, and they become active when you drag the spell onto a character sheet? If so, that's absolutely amazing, and is something I've been wishing for for years! How do the effects appear when you look at the spell in the spell module? Can you post an image of that? Or can you share your spell module?

    Now we can compile 3.5E/Pathfinder spell modules with all the effects built-in!

    The Spells look the same inside the game when your looking at the spell, Nothing changed there. The Spell Disc always told us what the effects of the spell was. What I have done is in the spell module just added the actions content of the effects this puts the effect buttons and all in the Spell when you drop it in your character sheet. The Code above is the complete Aid Spell out of my Spell Mod. The area <actions>....</actions> is what I pulled out of a exported Character after adding the effects to the spell inside the game. (Its the only one I got done when I posted it. So yes I am starting to Load all the 3.5E spells with there effects included
