    Modules mini-reviews

    I use quite some extensions and modules, and would have liked an pre-vetted opinionated list with some info about them when I started. It's a bit of a jungle, finding the forest between the trees can be hard. These are what I use, and they are compatible as far as I have used them. I'm splitting them in modules en extensions. This thread will be about the modules. I will finish my extensions first, but some extensions have related modules. So I'm starting this one a bit earlier dan expected. You can also check out Extensions, Modules, Pregens and other 5E resources.

    The current list:

    Code:
    Name	DM Tools
    Author	DiabloBob
    with	Rob Twohy
    Source	DMSguild
    Support	Discord
    Official description
    To use this module, you must have Critically Awesome Essentials.
    DM Tools will allow players to place their own spell tokens that can be used to represent 5th Edition D&D spell entities, such as Spiritual Weapon, and also allow the player to use the spell tokens as a visual targeting feature. The size is set in the spell action and can auto-target all available tokens within the area if used as a targeting token. DM Tools will allow the DM to set a “token stack” which will allow the characters to have additional tokens added to theirs within the 5E ruleset. This is especially useful with paladins auras, light and visible ranges, and other such emanations.

    Mini-review
    Being able to add tokens to spells to place on the map is awesome. It automatically adds the icons from 5e Spell Tokens 2.1 and Simple Aura Tokens if available (both will be reviewed later).
    Since FGU is a work in progress, authors keep having to update their addons for this. This one touches a lot of functionality, and is therefore updated a lot. I don't envy the author. The basics of FGU are stabilizing, which should help in this.

    Compatibility
    No issues.

    If I may, this is really cool for you to do.

    However when you mention compat issues and you say: 'Lot's of issues' it would be nice to document the ones you've found. Lots doesn't mean the same for me (probably) than it does for you so what you wrote might lead someone to believe they're gonna pass on it.

    I've been using it and had no issue with the extension itself, only the ones caused the platform itself.

    My two cents.

    Thanks, and you are right. The issues aren't compatibility issues, but issues because FGU keeps changing. I changed the review.

    As this thread, and the extensions review thread, mostly consist of links to paid products, they should be in the Paid Creations sub-forum, as per the forum guidelines. So I've moved this and the extension review thread to the Paid Creations sub-forum.

    That's fair. I do have more paid stuff than from the forum.
