    5-Press FORGE MAGIC ITEM -Your new Armor will be created.
    NOTE- This creates the Item with the Name and Other Tab Information show both the Armor and Sensor Information. If the Template adds stats IE EAC or KAC or any thing else those will need to be edited in the new armor. Unlock it and make the changes to it.

    Worked perfectly for the armor. Thanks!

    Now how do I add to the Android Upgrade slot?

    Since it's really just record keeping

    You could create a Item (Upgrade Slot) Then use the Forge the same way
    (This would probably be the best as stats for the Upgrade could be auto applied if there are any.)
    or
    Open the Racial Trait and edit it Adding your Upgrade Item.

    Kind of weird navigating to get that to match your jpg, but I got there. Thanks again!

    I wish we'd had a "Forge" in the 4e rules for combining weapons and/or armor base with magic template. That would have saved me a ton of time.

    For example, I like to have the class name a certain way (namely, the class name being just the class name, not "Mechanic (drone)"). I actually have a character in my characters with just the class "Mechanic". I basically can't level them up properly because I cannot add another level of "Mechanic", just "Mechanic (drone)" or "Mechanic (exocortex)", which FG will treat as multiclassing and add 1st level abilities.

    HP and Stamina are also something I'd like to be able to freely adjust instead of being forced to adjust it by dragging class levels.

    As I said, adding new levels and the corresponding HP etc. by drag & drop is neat, and is definitely good for people who are not that experienced with FG, but the option of doing it manually like in the Pathfinder ruleset would be great.

    The reason for the two different names for Mechanic (Drone and Exocortex) is your choice made at 1st level. I you chose to have a drone for your ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (EX) then you use the Mechanic (Drone) there are several things in the leveling automation set up for the the Drone side of a Mechanic. Same thing for the Exocortex.

    Now with that said. I have gotten allot of complaints about things that are locked down that people would like to edit manually. At first release of the rule set most things were not locked. I was getting bug report after bug report because players were not following the proper creation order. So I started making fail safe to prevent errors and bugs. Now I have went thru and unlocked stuff so players can change just about anything they want to. But I will forewarn, Automation of character leveling will start giving you problems if things like Class name are changed. If you change the Class name you will have to modify and create everything manually when you level.

    You best bet for creating a Mechanic with out the Drone or Exocortex added in is to copy the original Class IE Mechanic(Drone) this can be done in the Class Window by dragging the Mechanic Drone into the List of Classes , you will then see Mechanic (Drone) with a Grey lock instead of Red You can unlock that Class, Rename it to Mechanic and use it when you create your 1st level mechanic. With that most of the automation should be fine and work well.

    Actually after testing this , it can not be done yet. You will get a console error..


    I will need to spend some time re writing the Leveling Wizard system to get to where you can name things what ever you want. I don't know how much automation we will lose in doing this.

    Please unlock class, key ability and level entry. It is very cumbersome to not be able to enter this information manually.

    Those are locked for the automation, If unlocked for manual entry there will be issues and errors when the proper wording is not entered.
    What are you trying to do that requires manually changing them?

    I'm trying to create a character. Entering level just requires trivial number field certification and shouldn't be locked. Also, if there are text key names that the code requires for some reason, then use a pop-up.

    For example, there are 6 stat names and a minimal number of classes and archetypes. Or, certify the user entry against known class and archetype names and delete if invalid. Again, it's a short list. There should be no need to lock these fields and prevent direct basic user maintenance.
