UPDATE: Now that FGII 2.7.1 has been released, the functionality within this extension has been made available from the 4E ruleset directly. Overriding 2.7.1 with this extension will limit other 2.7.1 4E enhancements (image toolbar), therefore if you upgrade to 2.7.1 ensure you disable and remove this extension before starting your campaign.

Hey all,

I pulled this together today, hopefully some of you will find it as useful as I will. :D

4E CT TokenstoMapImage

Modifies the standard 4E imagewindow class adding GM ability to single drag-drop and auto reassign ALL current CT (PC, Monsters or Neutral NPC) entry tokens to a map or image allowing for rapid token deployment.

Works by allowing the GM to drag the existing friend, foe or neutral actor controls (green, red, yellow faces) from the CT window (bottom) to any open image or map. All tokens for entries in the CT which match the actor type are automatically added (with references) to the map or image, cascading right to left and up from the original drop coordinates.

I tried it this weekend and while it certainly made things easier by dropping all the personalities straight on the map in a straightforward manner, it isn't quite as useful as being able to populate them into predetermined positions. Still, I'll be using it for sure. Thanks.

Fair comment.

The functionality your after sounds doable, given we can store pin locations for drop pins for an image in a module, in principle it sounds feasible.

It would probably require a ruleset mod of 4E Encounters and an update to the 4EParser and definitely falls into the significant effort bucket so not likely to happen in the short term.

Might be worth adding the request to the 4E wish list.

Thanks for the reminder DrZeuss... I'd been using your extension (thank you!) and had just noticed that feature listed in the release notes.
