Hi, I'm after first session and have some questions:

1. Why when charateristic have 16 DM=0? In my opinion (and soourcebook) should be +3
2. Why on main sheet in armour box is all my equipment (without weapons :) )?
3. When I delete weapon from equipment, it still is in action sheet
4. When I export module and check Pregenerated Characters (I do myself PC and want make full module witch characters) - they don't copy
5. Why for range weapon in Action Sheet I have attack -3?
6. What solution you propose for skills which have two characteristic eg. Mechanic - Intelligence or Education, and eg. Medic. I must change attribute before test?

I am having issues where when you put a character in the combat tracker their weapons doesn't show up. Also, when you equip a weapon it isn't automatically populating the skill. I can fix that by manually typing, but it should be automatic. Another thing, if you want to add a new weapon you don't get the same options when creating an item as the base items. For example, laser pistol which is part of the base book has a place for ammunition. A new weapon, you don't get to add that data other than in the comments section. The same with whether it is an auto weapon and the cost of ammo.

@Girwan,
I don't have the answers to your questions, but I've forwarded via e-mail to the developer of the ruleset. I know he has been travelling recently during summer break.

@watters,
PC weapons/abilities/spells do not show up in the combat tracker for any ruleset on FG. The reason is that PCs are much more complex in RPG game systems than NPCs; and there's no way to easily translate that into a simple list in the combat tracker. To use PCs as a GM, just click the link and use the PC sheet.

For the other skill item, as I mentioned above, I've forwarded this thread to the ruleset developer.

Good Morning,

First off, apologies for missing this thread. I did a sweep of the board not so long ago, but either missed this or it was posted just after. Thanks to MoonWizard for emailing me.

1. This was fixed in 1.0.6 of the ruleset, which you should already have (I presume you're on 1.0.6a). Change the characteristic from 16 to something else and then change back, the MOD should be updated.
2. Only Armour should be on that list, can you show me a screen shot please or let me have a list of the equipment that 'leaks' onto it. The Armour box uses a filter to display the correct content (or should!)
3. Ok that's a bug, it should be deleting it.
4. Pre-gen is very new, I'll have to see how it 'works' and if required, activate it to work with this ruleset (I'll email today about it to FG)
5. This could be because it can't find the correct skill to use. Which weapons are you dragging across and what skills do you have (screen shots would be ace here)
6. That's the idea, change the skill to use the required characteristic before you roll. Most skills hardly change which characteristic, but some do. If you can think of a nicer mechanic then let me know.

I'll add the bugs to my workload and get them sorted asap for you.

Cheers,

Hello as with Girwan an apology for my lack of answering (stupid school holidays over here still).

1. When you drag characters over to the CT, the weapons don't show up: They're on the character sheet. NPC attacks do.
2. Also, when you equip a weapon it isn't automatically populating the skill: As with Girwan here, it could be it's not finding the correct skill**
3. f you want to add a new weapon you don't get the same options when creating an item as the base items: Which type and subtype are you using, these dictate which 'fields' are shown.

** When it comes to Weapons and dragging over for skills, a 'text' check is made, ie 'This is a ranged weapon that fires bullets' so must use this skill of 'Gun Combat (Slug)', if it's not sure what ammo type it uses, it can't match the correct skill. My plans for 1.0.8. is to add against EACH weapon which skill to link it to, rather than guessing.

So if you can answer with screen shots please, I'll sort these issues.

Cheers,
MBM

Sorry it is still not clear to me how to deal with PC weapons on the CT. Obviously, I see them on the character sheet so do I roll the attack from the character sheet then and not the combat tracker. I am used to other rulesets so not sure how to do combat in the traveler ruleset.

3. I created a laser pistol variant for example. I typed the same information that was on laser pistol. Maybe drop down menus would be helpful so there is no guessing on the part of a GM who is trying to add new items.

As Moon Wizard mentions above - it is standard functionality in all major Fantasy Grounds rulesets not to have PC attacks/actions in the combat tracker. The GM needs to open the PC sheet and roll from there. This is the same for D&D 5E, Pathfinder, Starfinder, Savage Worlds, Call of Cthulhu, etc., etc..

Most of the rulesets do not have PC actions on the CT. Players act off their Character Sheets and the GM acts off the Combat Tracker.

Yeah, I was thinking about this as well. Two solutions I thought of: have buttons on the bottom of the screen (similar to the task difficulty) that will over-ride the characteristic modifier for the next skill roll only, or have the player hold Shift while rolling, and it will pop up a dialog to select the attribute to use for this roll. I think I actually prefer the former...

A couple more suggestions for your list (not bugs per se, but stuff that should be changed):


Add links to the skills on the career tables, so when you roll, it puts the link to the skill right into the chat box, ready to drag and drop.
For the "Physical Science", "Space Science", etc skills, their description is just "See the Science skill" - this makes having the link on the character sheet pretty much useless. Each of those skills should have the description from the Science skill within the skill itself (leaving out the "other" skills) so that players can just click on the link and get the apropos description.

OK, I've found some "inconsistencies" in adding weapons.

If I have skills "Gun Combat" and "Gun Combat (Slug Pistol)", adding an Autopistol works fine. Adding an Autorifle picks up the skill level for "Gun Combat (Slug Pistol)" - should pick up the plain "Gun Combat". Adding an ACR picks up "Unskilled" - again, should pick up the plain "Gun Combat". Adding a Revolver picks up "Gun Combat (Slug Pistol)" just fine.

Also, I noticed that the plain "Rifle" equipment entry has no range or damage...

You are planning on adding a field to specify the skill used. I would like to suggest making this a list of skills, and if none match, then default to Unskilled.

Something like "Gun Combat (Slug Pistol); Gun Combat" for the Slug Pistols. Also, consider an over-ride for the characteristic on this - some weapons, for example, might rely more on strength to wield properly than dexterity even though the skill might "default" to dexterity. Maybe something like "Gun Combat (Slug Pistol) [dexterity]; Gun Combat [dexterity]". There are some GMs who might even allow dexterity modifiers for unskilled firearm usage, who could then also add "Unskilled Skill [dexterity]" to the end to pick up any dexterity modifier in addition to the -3 unskilled penalty.

Just something to think about...

Thanks for the response, but this isn't true for RMC which I am familiar with, but that is an older version and not yet updated to Core. You actually see the PCs weapons on the combat tracker and can roll from there. Good to know this for other rulesets though.

I think it would be great if the various subspecialties were drop downs as well. I do know some DMs that just use the general skill and don't require subspecialties, but it would be nice if we could just drag and drop and limit the typing of new skills. Just an idea.

RMC is a completely different beast. In fact, you can't even roll PC attacks from the PC sheet - it has to be done through the combat tracker. This is, to the best of my knowledge the *only* ruleset that works this way, or has full PC attacks and actions in the combat tracker.

The various skills used for the weapons is a fairly big problem for our group. If we want to add a weapon into the game you often have to guess as to what skill will work with it and you have to be very accurate with your spelling. I think there are a couple with "s" (Rifles vs Rifle or some such it has been awhile since I looked). We do not mind having to enter data that is expected when we want to add things but having to figure out what exact skill to type in has really put the group off of this ruleset. It has been a while since we have played with this set and I have forgotten the other issues we ran into. I do know that it was disappointing to buy a released rule set that had so many issues. I am hoping your update will address the ones that have been reported so we can start playing again.

I'm sorry to hear about this. I use this ruleset but I know how it works, it's why I wait for others to tell me about issues/ideas, this forum is the best place.

I'm working on the Weapons now, having a good think about what's needed.

At the moment I'm thinking that for weapons it will add a 'Skill' field, that field will be a drop down showing all the weapon skills, it's quite a list, so might need over time adding/changing, but I need to see if the dropdown allows you to enter something else.

This would show skills such as:

Gun Combat (Slug Pistol)
Gun Combat (Shotgun)
Gun Combat (Energy Pistol)
...
Heavy Weapons (Launchers)
Heavy Weapons (Man Portable Artillery)
....
Explosives
Melee (Unarmed Combat)
Melee (Blade)
....
and so on

Let me know if you think of any other skill that should be added, ie Gunner?

Now thinking of skills, I'm wondering IF you can create 'sub-skills' ie you pick 'Gun Combat' and then you get to pick one of the Specialities, ie 'Energy Rifle', I'll find out.

Cheers,
MBM

I would just make the skill field a text field with defaults for the equipment in the modules. This way the GM can make up his own skills and use them as well. And I would make it so that you can put in multiple skills, because some of these "fall back" to other skills. I wrote a longer post about it elsewhere...

One of the issues is with the 'current data', I'd need to add a skill to each one as default, so just looking if I can (when you drag a skill) that it pops up the sub-skill etc, so that it's all in the same format, ie 'Gun Combat (Shotguns)'

Dinner time here, cheers, MBM

The problem arises that if you put in "Gun Combat (Shotguns)", and they don't have that particular skill, then it should look for "Gun Combat", and it they don't have *that* skill, only then should it use "Unskilled". Also, some weapons use Dex, some use Str, so there should be an over-ride for that as well, instead of relying on what's set for the skill. If you have a fixed list of skills on the drop-down, you preclude the GM making up a new skill for his new-fangled weapons...

I'm not a fan of dropdowns/cyclers, but that solves the issue of spelling mistakes and the wrong format.

So today I think I'm going to make it work like thus:

Skill field on the item screen, open text.
Modify the existing data to set this skill in the format 'Skill (Specialisation)', for example, 'Gun Combat (Shotgun)'
When dragging that item to your inventory, search the skills using that new skill field, however if NOT found, also look for 'Gun Combat (Shotguns)', failing that, drop back to the main skill, ie 'Gun Combat', 'Melee' etc. Failing that drop back to unskilled, -3, but you have the ability to override this.

Now to address the 'dex' or 'str' characteristic mod, I could add the characteristic cycler, meaning there would be a 'total' dice pool column, but space is short. Range will have to be sacrificed. I use that for applying the DM's.

I welcome thoughts on this.

Cheers,
MBM

Solving the "issue" of spelling mistakes and wrong format also breaks Rule #0 of RPGS - the GM is always right. It prevents GMs from making up their own skills to use. Allowing GMs free-form to make up their own skills necessarily implies that you may have spelling mistakes - your "spelling mistake" might just be a GM's new skill name.

Here is what I think would be the "ideal" solution. If you have something like a "CharManager2" module (like many CoreRPG child rulesets), then add a function there that is some like "getskillmodifier". You pass it a CT or PC node, plus a skill and a characteristic. That function will look within the node for a skill that matches and gets the level for that skill. If no skill matches, then look for a string within "()". If it has this, then remove that part and look for a skill that matches the base name, and get that level. If neither of those match, then set the level to -3. After that, look up the characteristic modifier, add to the skill level, and return the total. Then the weapon records can have a skill name and a characteristic plus a damage.

I would also *not* "set" the value when the item is dropped. I would display the skill total using the "number_modifier" template by calling the function and not allow the user to change that number directly. That template allows for a "temporary" modifier to be applied, but otherwise it should always display the *current* skill level + characteristic bonus, and if those change, the value on the combat tab should immediately reflect that change.

You can see how the "temporary" modifiers work by looking at the Castles and Crusades ruleset:

I'm going to work on the 'Action Tab' making work like the skill tab. I think that's the best way, but I need to look at how to 'link' 'basic skill field' rather than 'setting' the value when it's dropped.

Going to play D&D now, so working tomorrow evening again.

I've got DnD5E, looked in that many times, it's rather complex at times, so just takes time to pull stuff out.... Traveller was built right on top of CoreRPG, so uses inheritance for as much as possible.

I'll take a look tomorrow as I have it all linking for the CT of course.

I am not sure if this was listed anywhere else, but if you have a characteristic that is a 15 or F, the sheet doesn't auto populate a modifier and since you can't edit the modifier in the sheet you can't do anything. The sheet shows a 0 modifier for a 15 stat. I assume if you have an Aslan character it is possible to go above 15 (? not sure) and that modifier should also populate accordingly. Plus on the first tab under armor it lists all equipment and not just armor so it clutters things up a bit.

The 15+ stat has been found and fixed, as for the armour list showing everything, sounds like some data is missing the 'type', oddness. Does it do it for all PC's?

I am not 100% sure, but it must have something to do with if a GM creates an item. Even if you call it something other than armor it shows up on the tab. I did just realize that all the new items that I added show up. I have a PC without new items that doesn't have their non armor items show up. So I guess it is related to adding new items. The sheet doesn't pay attention to how you categorize them.

Just tried to check the weapons skill but can't get my head around it.

Here's what I did:



I deleted the "Assault Rifle" item and the "Gun Combat (slug rifle)" skill, as I realized, that I wrote slug rifle without capital letters.
Then I added "Gun Combat" skill and edited the term "(Slug Rifle)" to it, to have it written as it is written in the "Assault Rifle" item.
I then added the item "Assault Rifle".




Sadly, the Action Tab still don't recognize the skill, it's still set to -3 (and this char has Jack of all Trades 1)

What am I doing wrong?
TIA for any hints.

I then added the item "Assault Rifle".




Sadly, the Action Tab still don't recognize the skill, it's still set to -3 (and this char has Jack of all Trades 1)

What am I doing wrong?
TIA for any hints.
cya

Can you zip up your Campaign and get it over to me please so I can look for you?

I can make sure that the 'skill' it looks like don't need the Capital Letters etc, is (slug rifle). At the moment it looks for the skill the same as the item in the data, ie 'Gun Combat (Slug Rifle)' if it doesn't find that it looks for 'Gun Combat (Slug Rifles)' and if it doesn't find that, it looks for 'Gun Combat' after that 'Jack of all trades'.

Same. I've tried every variation I could think of. Slug Rifle. slug rifle. Slug rifle. Slug Rifles. Various combinations of capitalisation. Skill never applies to weapon. Also sometimes when I delete a weapon it won't let me add the same weapon again.

'Gun Combat (Slug Pistol)' is the name of the skill it looks for, not '(Slug Pistol)'

Which weapons won't it allow you to add, all it does it look into the list and if it's there at adds it again (ie you'll have 2 x Pistols).

Might I make a suggestion? Try not to rely on a specific case format when matching strings. I'd recommend converting these to all lower case before/while using any code to match a string to a skill name or similar comparisons/matches. You can use String.lower(s) or s:lower() - where "s" is the string variable. Search the 5E ruleset for :lower to find many examples of this.

Morning chap...


if DB.getValue(vSkill, "name", ""):lower() == "jack of all trades" then
nBaseSkill = DB.getValue(vSkill, "level", -3);
sSkillLink = vSkill.getPath();
break;

Hi! Just want to say, really love this ruleset!
The only bug I've encountered (not sure if it's been mentioned yet) is that Law Level isn't auto-filling out properly on the World sheets. When I type in the UWP, all the details are populating, but the description for Law Level only lists something a handful of times. The rest of the time it is either blank, or it has a number written in the description box. I've attached a pic that shows (on left) a blank law level box, and (on the right) law level shows fine. Only a handful of planet's I've typed in show the law level description.

Side question, the UWP code only shows when the world is unlocked?

The UWP was to enter the data, I can leave it showing if you think it's fitting, as I'll have to add code to update it on the fly.

Still having problems with weapons.

Recently tried to to add stun grenades to the inventory of players (they found a box of them on the wall of an estate that housed rare and dangerous animals). Got that pesky error again...
(see attachment). Also, the skill behind this is explosives. AFAIK the skill should be Athletics, or am I wrong?

As for the matter of stun damage: how do you play it? In MgT 1e, you roll damage, subtract the targets armor and then the target has to roll END higher than the rest damage (endurance save roll). If failure, char is stunned.
Do we have to play this by hand or is there a mechanism in FG that can do the checks for us and apply the effect?

Just asking... :)

of course you could use a grenade launcher, the effect of the various grenades needs to be added to the combat panel, so I'm thinking its heavy weapons (grenade launcher) or Athletics (Co-ordination) then put the effect in the damage box

Hi, you need to enter more information to make it work:
hex map location, uwp, base code, trade code, zone code.
For example, I typed this for Regina:

1910 A788899-A M S Ga Ri G

Then it auto populated.
The base/trade/zone codes can be a little buggy, as it looks for three things. If you have no bases, one of the trade codes might vanish as it auto-populates, and you have to type the second code in again. If there's no zone code (green, amber, red) then it might error, or mark the system as an 'unidentified' zone, and other codes might vanish. So, again, after it auto-populates, double check that none of the base or trade codes have vanished, and if they did, type them again.

After typing changes, just left-click once in any other text field (such as Starport field) and the UWP correction updates the entries.

Okaaay ... I am still getting the weapons bug.
Also, I'ld like to have the ammo show up in the actions tab, if possible.
And finally, maybe I am missing something, but how do I play stun weapons? According to 1e rules, the damage is not applied to the stats, but instead you need to do a constitution save roll and if failed apply the effect stunned. Is there a way to automate this?

And BTW I am just looking at a youtube flic from FG, where you are starring, MBM! Had no idea you were such a celebrity! Wow. It's nice to watch!

backwardoracle
November 3rd, 2018, 15:27
Hi,
Which part of the bug are still having problems with?
Ammunition expenditure will need a new bit of code, we will have to wait a bit
"Stunstick: This melee weapon deals 2d6 stun damage in addition to its normal damage. A character struck by a stun stick must make an Endurance check with a negative DM equal to the stun damage
(after armour is subtracted). If this Endurance check is failed, the character is knocked unconscious."

So you do the D6 normal damage and use that as a negative DM to the defender's endurance roll (after armour). I can't see a place to try coding effects so automation is out for now.

I thought that too but it is not the case. The level of automation and capabilities vary from ruleset to ruleset. I hope for continuous expansion on this one's capabilities but sadly have found development speed lacking. I could be wrong but I have no way to know because the developer hasn't really said much about what is going on. The last I heard was that starships were coming but delayed for an unknown period because of some development problem with some mechanical part in starfinder that was needed for ships here. I assume the interim time could have been use to work on automation or effects but nothing has been said or released for about a month.

Afternoon All,

Been working on Traveller this morning (and a bit over the last week), PSI still isn't finished, can't make up my mind on how I want it to work, but fixed some bugs.

Fixed: Dragging Autofile with no Gun Combat (Slug Rifle) but Gun Combat correctly finds the 'base skill', if no 'base skill' exists and JoaT does, it uses that.
Fixed: CT (applied updates from Moon Wizard - where my code overrode updates to CT) - still a graphical bug to fix but no errors (working in that now)
Fixed: Worlds Data - Law Level is now correctly set*/**
Possibly Fixed: Look at the issue with the NPC being the 'named character' even if the PC's make the dice rolls.***

*If you already have worlds entered, edit the UWP but change the Law Level (final digit before the -) to something different, then reset to the original level.
** Also note that Tripwire (Adventure) had this issue, so I've updated the data - there's an update to this module.
*** I've been refactoring the CT, removing a lot of code, so it's possible I fixed this earlier. However if I have the Vargr Assassin active in the CT, yet Dr Thunder makes a roll to hit, the Chat Window shows Dr. Thunder made the attack.


Other updates coming in 1.08 (which I'll push tomorrow - regardless of PSI completed or not, just want the bugs fixed)

Add the modifiers +1, +2 etc to the Damage Rolls.

Adding the +1, +2 to Damage Rolls, can you point out which effects modify damage as Traveller doesn't really have many effects.

The "effect" is the margin by which you hit. If you roll a to hit of 11, the effect is 3 (11 - 8) - and you add a +3 to the damage roll. This should automatically be added to the modifiers box...

From the "Skills and Tasks" section of the rules:

If the degree of success is important, then subtract 8 from the total of the dice roll plus Dice Modifers. This margin of success is referred to as the Effect. For example, if a player rolls a 4 and 3, and has a +3 DM for a total of 10, then his Effect is 10 – 8 = 2.

From the "Damage" section of the rules:

Each weapon lists the damage it inflicts as a number of d6. Add the Effect of the attack roll to this damage.

Nah, that would be unwieldy (add effect before roll, then remove it after). My original suggestion was to have a set of buttons at the bottom of the desktop (like the skill difficulty buttons), one for each characteristic. The player can then click the button, and do the skill roll, and for that next roll, it overrides that skill setup on the character sheet (if any), then it resets afterwards.

<p>The M5A1 is a progressive development of the old M2 assault rifle. The M5A1 is a binary-propellant design, incorporating a three round 30 millimetre grenade launcher, along with hardened sights equipped with a red-dot, low-light and telescopic options, complete with an active/passive rangefinder. The rangefinder is used to feed fusing information to the grenades, enabling them to explode at set distances for enhanced effectiveness against dug-in troops.</p><p>While Army troops use the M-4A1 gauss rifle, Marines and SPECFOR troops prefer the M5A1.</p><p>Type: 9mm binary propellant assault rifle</p><p>Country: USA</p><p>Length: 75cm</p><p>Mass (Unloaded): 3kg</p><p>Action: Single shot or bursts</p><p>Ammunition: 9x40mm APHE</p><p>Muzzle Velocity: 1,200mps</p><p>Magazine: 40 rounds (separate propellant bottles for 120 shots)</p><p>Magazine Mass: 0.4kg</p><p>Propellant Bottle Mass: 0.1kg</p>

It also seems that dragging the custom weapon worked...it shows in the inventory, but it doesn't show up on the Actions tab. Do I have to recreate it there?

Figured it out..it appears there was a new <skill type="string"> tag that was added between when I started the 2300 AD book and the current ruleset. It all seems to work now. One question, however..how would you calculate Armor Piercing?

I'm currently working on Damage Types and Armour resistances etc

Any armour that a character is wearing should appear against them in the CT.

I will be making changes to this in the future but at the moment it should all work. I've noticed a bit of a bug in the armour section on Dr Thunder, so I'll fix that now (it's allowing a custom weapon to appear)

Btw something not many people know. I did the Traveller ruleset so that I could do 2300. I spoke with Mongoose over this and was told it was being updated for MGT2E rules. So do let me know if there's something you need, I could look at an extension.

Dealing with the Super AP, AP, and Semi-Ap would be very helpful, even if that's something that we manually have to add to weapons (eg. weapon does 3d6 AP damage, means armor penetration is 3). This calculated would be very, very good IMHO.

I've just added Damage Types to the core ruleset, for AP, SAP, SeAP etc, would just require the data model being updated. Shouldn't be too hard to do that. I'm just thinking through Armour values against Damage Types.

Great! Let me know if there is anything I can do to help test! Going to run a 2300 AD session in the very near future.

No worries, I'll add them into the core data set for the moment, as 'AP', 'SAP' and 'SeAP' if that's any use, or we can use full names with hyphens, ie 'Armour-Piercing', 'Super-Armour-Piercing' and 'Semi-Armour-Piercing'.

I'm OK with the acronyms, especially since it'll save space on the character sheet.

A thing that just jumped on me: on the Testserver actual version 1.0.9 I couldn't remove the PSI actions, even after removing the PSI ability. Rightclick only lets me close the window.

For test versions, put bug reports in that thread please. Use the 'actions list' edit button, that should allow you to remove them until I address this.

Cheers,
