    To add Inquisitor:
    1. Go here: https://tinyurl.com/y5kc67o7 and download the Enhancements.txt file.
    2. Navigate to your Lite Planner installation directory.
    3. Rename the existing Enhancements.txt in Data/Builder to EnhancementsED.txt
    4. Save the new Enhancements.txt into the same directory.

    Run the planner normally. Let me know if anything explodes.

    Edit1: The very first version had a copy/paste error in Arresting Assault, if you downloaded it.. the text was wrong. Now fixed.
    Seems to work for me

    Nice!

    Don't bother; races are hardcoded in the planner. The best you could do is add the trees and then repurpose some existing races to have the enhancement tree and stat bonuses of the new races, but of course you'd then lose the original repurposed races.

    However, it's not out of the question that I could make races and classes addable just by editing data files. I'm pretty sure the last time I looked at doing that it didn't seem overly hard.

    I just yesterday did my first actual work on the Lite tools in months, and I kinda liked it. I'll try to get an updated version out when Sharn gets released in a couple weeks.

    Thanks ED. I actually spent a bit of time yesterday in your source code and realized that it was more than I wanted to tackle. It's been quite a while since I worked in Visual Basic so I found myself spending more time trying to dig my coding skills out of a box in the basement rather than fixing a game tool. Glad to see you are back and playing!

    Update that I'm not on track for a release this coming week in time for Sharn. Hopefully the following week.

    On the plus side, it's not for lack of effort or motivation. I've been working hard on my lite tools for the past couple weeks, and really into the work I'm doing on the Compendium. None of the sharn changes are in yet; I'm hoping that by the time I'm ready to release, wiki will be updated with quest favor and saga rewards for the sharn stuff. If not, no worries, I'll add "???" placeholder data and post a second update when I get all the data.

    You can see early previews of the new features I'm working on over in the compendium thread starting with this post.

    Nice. Will be waiting for the update. Thanks a lot for the effort.

    Please remember that SSG have introduced a +2 racial AP tome. So the max racial AP's you can get now is 14 (with tiefling added). SSG also introduced a +1 universal AP tome.

    Yep, thanks much, I probably would have missed that. I'll be sure to add it in.

    The utilities let you set the max tome values in Data\Tomes.txt, as well as the levels each + takes effect. So you can go ahead and kick the Racial AP up to 2 on your end right now. But again, I'll update it for the next release. (Just now made the change on my development version.)

    The global AP tome isn't in yet, but it shouldn't take me too long to implement it.

    EDIT: Tomes.txt is shared by both Character Builder Lite and the Compendium, since both let you apply tomes to characters.

    Just to make sure you're on the same page, the Universal Point Tome gives you a point which can be used only in universal trees(like Harper, Falconry, etc.) not a global point to be spent wherever you like.

    You may understand that, but your post seemed to indicate otherwise.

    Cheers

    a heart felt thank you to EllisDee

    I would really like to thank you for all your work you have put into this over the years and your continued work in it.

    i use it weekly to update and modify builds for my wife and kids. it is an awesome tool in being able to have the builds in an easy to read format to print out for my family to follow. it has been a real time saver and a key to me keeping my sanity on having 40+ toons to keep track of for my wifes toons and my 4 kids toons straight. you are a miracle worker and keeper of my sanity in this game of niche builds.

    really truly thanks a million

    Ah, yeah, my bad. That's the internal name of those types of trees in my planner. (Race, Class, RaceClass, and Global.) Looking now on wiki it appears the official term (at least for the tome) is universal, so I'll use that when displaying text for the user to see.

    Thanks much, I appreciate the kind words.

    You made my day!



    Depending on how long my work on the Compendium takes, I may or may not release an early update just with updated Sharn stuff (races, quests, sagas, AP tome, etc...) and possibly no compendium update (or partial, maybe?) so I can then work on the compendium without time pressure.

    Look for a post this weekend or Monday for either a firmer timeline or an actual (albeit partial) update. I can probably finish what I want to do in like 10 days or so, but it could balloon to 3 weeks. One thing is for sure: Game of Thrones discussion has absolutely destroyed my past four Mondays, including this one.

    This is what I'll do.

    Look for a data update for the new quests and races either later today or tomorrow. I expect another couple/few weeks of work on the Compendium before I can release the new features.
