    Hiding an invisible PC from the rest of the group

    I have a group that has a rogue that loves to sneak in combat so that the enemy has to seek him out in order to attack him. The problem is that the rest of the group knows where he is because he is out there on the map. So they are precisely placing area of effects that just miss him. I would like to remove his counter from the map for them, but so that he could still see it and move it. I tried to make him neutral faction, but that causes him to disappear to himself too. Any ideas on how this could be accomplished? I am using FGC if that matters.

    Players can't be made invisible on the Combat Tracker - only enemies.
    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/

    Perhaps you might introduce some variability into their precisely placed AoE attacks...
    Roll a d10 on a 1 nudge it up 1 square, 2 up and across 1 square, 3 across 1 square etc and on a 9-10 it goes exactly where thy intended
    Ofc you could use a d12 and then 33% of them hit correctly, or a d20 and 60% are good.

    Assuming you are keeping careful track of where the PC is, you could always remove their token whenever it's not their turn.

    When I change the PC to alignment (little coloured face) to anything other than Friendly, I get a invisible eye icon. (IE I can make them invisible)
    "The small town of Swampspittle is a charming reminder of how Faerun use to be.Plague victims crawl eloquently down it's dung filled streets; greasing the way with puss from thier buboes.While at least two children a week are burnt at the stake as changelings in the handsome market square. The town boasts two taverns, one humourous dwarf and a shop that sells little things made of straw."

    Unfortunately, it's not that simple:

    I think it would be fairly easy to make an extension to override that so you can always see your token regardless of faction...

    I'm not sure where a blue faction is. Screenshot please.

    If you click on the "head" repeatedly it cycles through "friendly" (green), "neutral" (yellow), "unfriendly" (red) to, finally, "faction" (blue).

    It doesn't do that in the standard ruleset without any extensions. That looks like the empty indicator in the normal ruleset, which is just another option - they're not known to be friendly, neutral or hostile - just another categorisation (and display colour in the CT) - use as you wish.
