    Question for you, Trenloe. I'm getting pretty far in this conversion but your post got me curious. How do you think I could best streamline points calculations? Are you thinking the attributes in particular? Best I can think of right now is a linked excel sheet where I can make the calculations easier. I've thought about using the character sheets within FG so that I could put the three dice in for the attributes but my brain isn't finding an easy way to automate the calculations within FG. If you have specific recommendations I'm all ears. Trying to get to an initial beta of this to roll out soon but am curious as to what you were thinking when you commented. Thanks!

    It really depends how far you want to go. In an ideal world, the bonuses for each race, class, backstory and alignment would be stored somewhere - probably in a LUA table like the gamesystem info is, so this could be accessed easily via LUA scripting. Then that could be used to calculate the current points total, on the fly as each dice is added to or rearranged in the attributes section, or the alignment is shifted or armor/trait cards are added. I don't know how far you intend to take this and how much of this information would be available.


    FG Product Development status: Pathfinder Playtest Ruleset and add-ons: In development. Pathfinder Bestiary, Pathfinder Bestiary 2, Pathfinder Bestiary 3 (in store).

    Private Messages: My inbox is forever filling up with PMs. Please don't send me PMs unless they are actually private/personal messages. General FG questions should be asked in the forums - don't be afraid, the FG community don't bite and you're giving everyone the chance to respond and learn!

    Ok. Now I'm following you. If I had the first idea at all of how to code anything in any language I might go down that road. However, given I have limited time outside of work and don't know a thing about coding, I think I'll just need to go down the route I have been. I still might try the excel sheet idea to help automate the calculations. Thanks, Trenloe.
