    Smile Thanks so much!

    Just wanted to say "Thank you!" for this wonderful app! I've been in game 9 years and this program has been incredibly useful to me in creating scads "what if" characters. The fact that you keep it updated and have built in additional functions like item design has been quite a boon.

    Cheers and thanks again!

    Thanks for your continued work on this!

    Is the regular two handed fighting feat missing in this version, or am I doing something wrong? I see improved, greater, etc. but not the first one in the stack.

    It's in there, but won't appear if the build never reaches Strength 15. (But if so, neither ITHF nor GTHF should appear either.)

    It also has an anti-req with SWF, but that doesn't filter it out of the list; you could still choose it and it would show an error condition.

    I also don't think there's a filter on the bottom right that would take out THF but still show the other two in the line. Is it possible you're looking for it after the TWF feats in the list? It appears immediately before them.

    Ah, yep, there it is. I had miscalculated base STR + tome. Thanks!

    Any chance of having a Print function? I know I could use PRTSCR but that give a black background....

    Possibly. I've been toying with the idea of a nicely formatted printable character sheet. I have other programs with fairly involved printing features, so it's not out of the question.

    In the meantime, you can print reasonably well with Export => to Forums, choose Plain Text format, then copy the output to notepad and print from there.

    Didn't realise it would output to plain text. That works well enough. Many thanks

    You've probably seen this, but just in case:

    I'm starting to burn out on working on these tools, so I'm leaving augments "mostly" finished. It's technically all done -- even the help files -- but I didn't add augments or stone of change recipes to the Item Planner (just gearsets), and I didn't enforce slot rules on crafted gear. As is, it'll let you put any color slot on any item in your gearset. You just have to confine yourself to augment slots that are actually available. Don't design a craftable trinket with purple, orange and green slots; craftable trinkets have no slots at all!

    The reason I don't apply rules (which I did set up in the datafiles) is that named items can have any augment slots, and if you toggle an item back and forth between crafted and named, what should happen to the slots you've defined? I couldn't decide on an elegant way to manage that, so I give the user complete freedom. This also means I don't have to stress about non-standard slots on craftable items, like those lootgen caster sticks that were dropping with blue slots (instead of red like normal weapons) last update. Things like that just gave me a headache in terms of enforcing slot rules.

    Anyway, I could be ready for a release within the next day or so right now, or I could work on character printing. I'm sick to death of working on augments and gearsets, but printing might be interesting. Here's a crude mockup (Word 2013 document) using my test build, the Bird of Prayer. (Not an optimal build, obviously, but it hits almost every edge case in the builder.)

    Character Sheet mockup

    Obviously the skills table would be aligned and pretty. Way too much of a hassle to pretty it up in Word, though.

    Printing in VB6 is super easy and gives complete control. The printer object acts exactly like a picturebox, and everything in all the lite tools is essentially just a bunch of userdrawn pictureboxes, so printing is right in my wheelhouse. My vision is a single piece of paper for an entire build, printed front and back, offset to allow 3-hole punching it and filing it into a 3-ring binder full of build printouts. I can have the printer automatically print 2-sided if it supports it; if not, you could manually print 1 page at a time, feeding it back in flipped over for printing the back.

    Is the print format in that mockup worth pursuing, do you think? I estimate a week to 10 days to implement it. If I don't do it now, there's no telling when or even if I'll get to it. I'm ready to stop working on these tools for a while...


    EDIT: Also, sorry, but no gear swaps. I'm sick to death of the gearset screen; no mas!

    It looks good and I like it, but......

    Not sure how many people (other than me) asked about printing a Character Sheet/Build guide, but knowing (after you pointed it out) that things will export to text was more than enough. I can pretty things up enough at my end to not require you to invest your considerable time and effort into adding a print function.

    If you're feeling so burned out, then honestly? Drop it for now and maybe revisit in the future.

    Thanks for the efforts

    While I applaud your desire to truly "finish", and looked forward to gear swaps, I'll be the first to say "This is more than anyone could hope for - thanks!"

    In the final balance, having the end-user contribute a little work for themselves is more than fair, and in the long run, making them figure out their own augment matches is a good teaching tool. If they don't like it, they can stick to the old version.

    (Any chance your time included a "notes" section somewhere in each set? That could cover a lot of what the "swaps" would have done.)

    New version is up, release notes in previous post.

    Everything seems to work okay, but testing was limited. Let me know if you run across any issues.

    Heya Ellis. When I click on ingredients on the review tab in the crafting planner, I get a Run-time error'9': subscript out of range. No one else is complaining about it, so it might be a problem on my end. I'll try and play around with it to see if i can fix it. But figured i'd post in case anyone else is having the same issue. Thanks.

    Ellis is on an extended vacation right now, I tried to let him know about the new tree's when he logged on yesterday but he didn't say much. I can try to message him more about it later

    This makes me sad, but I COMPLETELY understand. Support this for so long must be exhausting. I love the tool so much, I use it literally every day. But sanity is more important.

    Ellis, hope you are enjoying the break. Come back whenever. Or don't. We will survive.

    Ellis,
    I know how this game can take it out of you and it's been a long run, lol. I imagine staying on top of all facets of the character development with this app has to be so much more effort.

    Regardless whether you return or not thanks for this tool.

    All the best,
    Psi
