View Full Version : SW5e a star wars home brew on the 5e rule set

This module and extension implement the SW5e rule set. This is a 5e (OGL) based conversion to a Star Wars universe.

This work includes the PHB and Scum and Villainy (Monsters/NPCs) PDF content from the SW5e project (link below)

The following extension and module must be loaded together to host a game using this ruleset.

Extension: The extension named "sw5e.ext" must be in your extension folder and selected when you create your 5e campaign.
Modules: The "SW5e Player Book.mod" must be in your modules folder and load from the Library->Modules tabs.

My testing has shown that the module and the extension are compatible with both FGU and FGC

FG Forum says my module is too big to upload, so you must get them from these links:

Current Version:
Download release version 3.0 here: release 3.0 download from GitHub (https://github.com/BeeGrinder/FantasyGrounds-SW5e/releases/tag/v3.0.5)

Old Version for old campaign compatibility:
Download the version 2.0 release from here: release 2 download from GitHub (https://github.com/BeeGrinder/FantasyGrounds-SW5e/releases/tag/2.0.0)

SW5e project website: https://www.sw5e.com/
(I have no affiliation with the sw5e project)

SW5e Content:
10 new classes with dozens of subclasses
35 new races (Species and driods)
35 new backgrounds
100 new feats
400+ new spells (Powers)
390 new Items/equipment
276 new NPCs
new weapons, creature types, damage types, skills, languages, and a single currency

All my sources are on github: https://github.com/BeeGrinder/FantasyGrounds-SW5e

Now includes spell and item effects inspired by and with permission of rob2e under condition that no money is ever charged for this work. Thanks!
Spells with coding have (*FG Coding) in their description. Those without this note may need to be manually coded until I can update the newer spells.

Be sure to read the notes below AND the reference section for DMs in the module. Because the SW5e rules do not perfectly match a true 5e game, some things do not function quite like a real 5e game. When I find these behaviors I make a note in these two areas. I try to fix them, but if I can not find a solution, I do my best to warn you so you are not surprised.

I've also created a starfield background extension (https://github.com/BeeGrinder/FantasyGrounds-SW5e/releases/tag/v3.0.7)
This extension replaces the current theme's background with a simple starfield. Works great with FG Dark or Simple Gray themes.

Instructions and Notes
- Install the extension SW5e.ext for SW5e skills, money, languages, damage types, skills, npc types, etc. Modules will not work correctly without the extension.
- Install the module: SW5e Player Book.mod (classes, races, backgrounds, npcs, etc)
- Download the "PHB" and "Scum and Villainy" PDFs that accompany the version of this FG SW5e version. Also provide the PHB PDF to your players.
- When creating a game make sure to use game system "5E" and choose the above SW5e extension.
- The extension includes some appropriate background decal images. I also have a background extension if you want a starry background (see first post).
- Remember when creating characters that many of the casting classes have a choice of which ability counts as the Spell Casting Modifier. So it must be set up manually.
- Proficiency seems to be working for classes, races and backgrounds. I don't think they work for feats, adjust manually.
- The author of SW5e suggests using the Spell Point System rather than Spell Slots. This is an interface adjustment to make during character creation if you use points. Search the FG forum for implementing D&D 5e alternate spell point system. You basically add a spell "ammo" counter for caster classes in the character sheet.
- All spells (powers), some classes, and some items have item effects coded into them for use in the combat tracker. Use the Source selector in the Spell window to see Force Powers, Tech Powers, Items, or a class.
- All included races have pictures in case you forget what they look like.
- Starting Equipment Packs are available in Parcels tab.
- Backgrounds have trait tables available for rolling if you like randomness.
- All classes now prompt at level 3 for sub-class choices.
- When creating a new player character, check the spell setup in the Actions tab and make sure the correct Ability type is set (Int, Wiz, Cha, etc.). This becomes the Base value for spell casting.
- When adding a weapon to a character sheet, double check the correct type (ranged/melee) and, especially if finesse weapon, the correct stat is used.
- Just like with vanilla 5e, the background starting equipment is not automatically added, you need to read the list and add the items/money manually.
- Background Tools/Instruments/Kits must be added manually.

Force and Tech Powers(Spells): Due to the wording of the SW5e powers, they do not always get interpreted correctly by the 5e ruleset. But, they are easily corrected after adding them to a player's character sheet. Even advanced automations can be added/edited. Here is a great tutorial on effects editing.

I'll definitely take a look at your stuff. I've never played FFG's Star Wars, but I'm a big fan of Saga and 5e, so I think a 5e conversion is an interesting idea.

Could be really cool.

Thanks. The ship data is coming later as well as a nice theme. Currently my priorities are getting the classes working as well as I can, and fixing any bugs/typos.

And, if someone wants to volunteer and join the project, just let me know :D

Since the PDFs are free for everyone to download, how important do you feel it is to get a reference manual section in the FG interface?

The Reference Manual is always a good thing - BUT - be careful with copyright... The fact that someone else has written all this stuff up and is sharing it fr free doesnt mean that they havent violated someone elses copyright. I am not saying they have - just asking you to do a little checking as you dont want to be responsible for posting copyright materials.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe with Star Wars "fan creations", the general rule is, you can publish things for free (fan fiction, fan art, fan films, etc), but if you charge people or make money in any way, they'll consider it copyright infringement. That's how LucasFilm/LucasBooks/LucasArts treated most stuff in the past, and so far, Disney has continued the tradition. There was recently an issue with a fan-film on YouTube that got into it with a subsidiary, but LucasFilm stepped in and straightened the mess out for the most part. Probably because it was turning into bad PR for LucasFilm/Disney.

I would never call it a rule.
They are 100% within their rights to protect their copyright and for any Trademarks they must protect them or risk losing them.
If the current practice by the IP owners is to ignore it thats great. Be aware that they could change that at any time.

If these are referencing the Jan2019 version, when would there be an updated version reflecting the new books?

That said this is fantastic.

pico
May 16th, 2019, 15:48
I'm not sure I will. Since this project seems to be on a monthly revision schedule, and doing major updates and changes, until they release a fairly static version of the game it's extremely difficult to keep up.

I believe I have a paragraph in the Reference manual part of the module about my plans and opinions on the project changes. Since the project is not producing a product to release, this constant changing and tweaking will continue. And, the complexity of the game has increased drastically over time, moving away from the core 5e principals in my opinion. We already had several fully fleshed out complex versions of Star Wars games available, no need for another.

That being said, in Fantasy Grounds its pretty easy to update the content if something you want is missing or has changed. You can even export your own changes as a module. So, don't let my lack of progress stop you.

September 27th, 2019, 15:52
Not at this time. The disruptive churn has settled down and there seems to be a more stable player handbook. But, the starship rules are not able to be done with a true 5e ruleset. This was frustrating because it was supposed to be a 5e game. Maybe I'll try something after Unity is released since it may have additional functionality.

Until then, this entire adaptation is available open-source on github. So anyone can take over and do any updates or changes and release their own updates.

Honestly if I were to write a ruleset, I would probably work on the Star Wars D6 system. It is very robust and well loved.

This is sweet. The SW5E PHB is finished. Is this module a version of the finished PHB? Also, the Monster Manual seems to be done now too. Do you plan on updating that? If not, would you be willing to explain how I go about doing it so I could try it myself?

If there is a stable release of the PHB and MM for SW5e I would definitely like to update this. I would also like to look at getting it working on FGU.
I would LOVE some help with editing the updates. If you are not familiar with GitHub, we can talk via PM. The entire PHB is in text format on GitHub, but in a format for a utility called Par5e which would just take a little time to explain.
The MM is done in a tool called NPC Engineer which might take longer to explain. But, most of the work has been in the PHB content.
You are absolutely free to take my project and redo it however you like. It is open and free for anyone to use, copy, reformat, whatever.
But, if you want me to do the compiling and just do the text editing, I can also do that. I just ran out of steam keeping up with all the constant changes.

If you have any ideas on how to implement the starship rules, I'd love to hear that too.

December 5th, 2019, 22:34
Yeah, if you go to the guys website, (https://www.sw5e.com/), you can see that the PHB was 100% finished as of 7/9/2019. Don't know if that is the 7th of September or 9th of July though but either way, it's been completed. The MM on the other hand I am unsure about. If you click Scum and Villany, (which is the MM name), it doesn't have them all in there and says "More coming soon..." However, if you click the "ASSETS," section and download the MM source book PDF, it has a far wider variety of Monsters in it and looks to be completed. The "ASSETS," section is also where you would download the completed PHB PDF.

In regards to the starship rules, I have no idea. I haven't even looked at it. Due to the way I do D&D, vehicles don't end up being a major thing. Even in a SW5E campaign, I would probably just keep it very basic and short and just freestyle it, instead of using an actual rulebook for it. Doing so would make vehicle combat much bigger than I want it to be in my campaigns.

I am working on updating to latest PHB and MM (NPCs) versions as I write this.
The extension includes themed background images, so along with the included "grey" theme it does look a little "star wars-ish".
There have been a LOT of updates and churn with the SW5e books, so it will be a few weeks before an update is ready.

Also, the extension does not work yet for FGU.

I've done some updating some of the sw5e updates a few months ago. If people are actually playing with this I'll put them into modules and update this thread.
Due to changes in the NPCEngineer tools suite, the NPC manual will no longer "compile" ( I wish I saved last years version of the software ) so I need to make some decisions on how to proceed with that module.

Ok, I'll update the Player Handbook module with the latest changes I've completed (about 3 months ago). The NPC Manual has several issues (especially spells/tech) and is missing about 75% of the content from the new NPC book. Look in the first message of this thread for updates in about a week.

Please, let me know when you find something that does not work as expected. I've gotten very little feedback and I can't possible play every possible combination to see if it works properly.

I would love if the community could find a way for Star Ship Control and Combat to be as cool for this, as it is for StarFinder.
I really like what people have done for StarFinder.

I am wracking my brain, to find a method just to share a Data sheet, that has everything manually added for starships.
I am thinking of a Shared NPC, using the Battle Royal extension and a Note or Story entry with the data.

April 10th, 2020, 22:08
The biggest issue with SW5e star ship combat is not the SW5e system, other than it claims to be a 5e system. It is nothing like 5e vehicle combat. So, in turn, because my SW5e extension for Fantasy Grounds is built upon the 5e ruleset, the star ship combat system is not part of the base 5e ruleset.

If I were to start this over again, I would seriously consider starting with the CoreRPG or Core Plus rulesets. Now, that being said, 5e is built upon the CoreRPG rules. So, there may be a way to shoehorn the space combat rules into this. The Druid Wildshape extension is an example of a character "within" another character (ships in SW5e are kind of like characters more than construct NPCs). But, SW5e has been so fluid and changing, that just getting the basic rules and NPCs into a stable module is enough of a challenge for now. They all need to take full advantage of the FG combat automation, or what's the point? The space combat can still be run, but more like you would on a less capable VTT software.

Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate the kind words.

How close are you to the NPC revamp?

I downloaded the files from the first post, the stormtrooper blaster attack was input incorrectly as a side note.

I have NPC Engineer and as another side note was wondering if there should also be a way to create all the abilities as spells. Such as "burst" and "grenades". Kinda like the Rob Twohy spell effects module for class abilities but for all the Star Wars stuff.

The latest downloads from the GitHub site linked in the first post has much improved NPCs, but I'm only about 1/4 the way through the S&V manual. The spells should be working on the ones that are done there. I have added some effects. Read the conversion notes in the reference manual sections of the PHB and Supplement modules. I document a couple I've added there, I think grenade is one of them. The newly fixed NPCs are in the PHB module and the old NPC module will no longer be needed. I hand coded all the spell effects in the Supplement module in order to have Rob2e style effects. He gave me his blessing and it is mentioned in the reference section.

As far as progress goes, NPC Engineer only gets me so far. I need to create the NPCs there, then "repair" them because all the special creature types and damage types for SW5e are not supported in the tool. And, now to make things even worse, my windows PC graphics card went out and I am left with my MacBooks. No NPC Engineer until I scrape together some funds.

(If I had a wish, some enthusiastic soul would enter in the NPCs from the Scum & Villainy book into NPC engineer as close as you can get them and send me all the npc files. That would speed the process up incredibly).

I would also like to help with this.

What I really need help with is dealing with updates to the PDFs. This is a constantly changing ruleset. The PHB module should be up to date as of January. But, so far I just get messages like "there are new updates, when will they be in the module" which doesn't help me much at all. If someone could find any updates and the page and paragraph in the PDF and enter an issue on my github(link above), I could update the module very quickly. Or, alternatively, shoot the specifics about the update in a PM to me and I'll put it in the github issue tracker for you.

I have had some interest with helping on NPCs but nothing concrete yet, would require learning NPC Engineer and coming up with some process that accommodates the differences in SW5e.

Also, I will only be doing things in the PHB and Scum & Villainy PDFs. (I added a few extra races, but will not be adding more). Anything outside those two PDFs will not be in my modules/extensions. So, anyone wishing to create modules containing what I think they call "Extended Content", go for it!

I will be getting my development moved onto my Mac and update the modules with more NPCs soon. Anyone needing a list of what NPCs I've already completed can see them in my github (PM me if you need to know where)

I started at the back of the book with Spy and have been working through them. I realize I maybe be duplicating some of your work, but I found it easier to just do it then to find out if you had already.
I fully intend to share to files when complete.
That is my update.

I am keeping track of which ones I've done in the file below. I'll work from the beginning then, and you can see when we meet. There will be some overlap since I decided to complete the ones from the old NPC module first. PM me and we can discuss how to get the .npc files to me. And, thanks for helping!

Update.
All NPCs from the Scum and Villainy PDF are now included in the PHB module.

If you see any class features, item effects, or PDF changes that are not in my modules, please let me know.

I'm considering the bulk of work on this project done now that it contains the PHB and Scum and Villainy PDF content. Expanded/Extended content will not be in my modules. I'd like to encourage others to expand into this area by publishing their own modules.

Hey, I'm not sure what happened, but I just updated my game and now there aren't any spells showing up at all?

Edit: I figured it out! Apparently the last update unloaded the modules for whatever reason. I just had to go back into the library and reload the modules.

pico
July 20th, 2020, 22:52
Make sure both the PHB and the Supplement modules are loaded up. That's usually the cause of this issue.

Thanks in advance

I updated the first post when the FG Forum says my module is too big to upload, so you must get them from these links:

Extension download: https://github.com/BeeGrinder/FantasyGrounds-SW5e/tree/master/extensions

It seems I do have the latest and greatest.

Are you still updating the files? If so, would you like me to report errors I find?

Thanks again.

Some of the NPC's are not working properly. For example the Trooper, Scout's Hold-out blaster says "Hit: 4 (1d4+2)." So, it won't do damage in the combat tracker. If I copy and edit the statblock, to say "Hit: 4 (1d4+2) energy damage." it works.

There are some other minor errors on NPC's that use spells. For FG to automate NPC spell attacks, the spell needs to say spell attack instead of tech attack in the spell discription. This is a problem on a number of spells like Choke, where it says "Make a ranged force attack". If you edit it to "Make a ranged spell attack" FG will allow you to roll the NPC's attack from the combat tracker.

Will you be making further updates or is this something we should just change on our own?

Thanks for all your work.

I'll look into this mostcallmetim. I'll try to get to any bugs in a timely manner. But, I am not currently playing this, so it's difficult for me to find much myself.

Jonnygadfly, I'll look into anything you find. You can post the issue here, or on the github issues area (link in the first post).

Also, I'd love to hear about FGU vs. FGC issues. I've done a little testing in FGU and it seems to be working fine, but I can only try so much without actual play.

I put the files in the correct locations, but when I try to Create campaign in FGU, the extension does not show up in the list.

*Does it work in Unity? I see on Gitbit you tried it., thats what im using*

September 19th, 2020, 22:54
Put the extension file (sw5e.ext) in the fantasy grounds extensions folder
Put the module files (SW5e Player Book.mod and SW5e Supplement.mod) in the fantasy grounds modules folder
Create a new campaign and give it a name
Pick Game System "5E"
Select extension "SW5e"
Start game
Go to "Library" in game and hit the "Modules" button at the bottom of the window.
Load both the "SW5e Player Book" and "SW5e Supplement" modules.



That should do it. So far, I've fixed any issues I've found with FGU. I am not currently running a SW5e campaign, so I'm relying on y'all to let me know if you find any.

Hi pico, thank you for bringing SW5e to FG!
I ran into an error in FGU when placing an Inquisitor Master npc into the combat tracker: "Failed spellcasting lookup on 2 spell(s) for (Inquititor Master). Make sure your spell module(s) are open." and "Spell lookup failures: force push, improved darkside tendrils", that's what the chat spat out at me. Same goes for Grand Inquisitor, and Inquisitor Knight is only missing dark side tendrils. In the SW5e Supplement I do not see "Force Push", but there is a Force Push/Pull. I also do not see a "dark side tendrils" spell, so I think that may be the cause for the error.

Instructions and Notes
- Install the extension SW5e.ext for SW5e skills, money, languages, damage types, skills, npc types, etc. Modules will not work correctly without the extension.
- Install the 2 modules: SW5e Player Book.mod (classes, races, backgrounds, npcs, etc), SW5e Supplement.mod (spells, items, equipment, etc). BOTH MUST BE LOADED!
- When creating a game make sure to use game system "5E" and choose the above SW5e extension.
- The extension includes some appropriate background decal images.
- Remember when creating characters that many of the casting classes have a choice of which ability counts as the Spell Casting Modifier. So it must be set up manually.
- Proficiency seems to be working for classes, races and backgrounds. I don't think they work for feats, adjust manually.
- The author of SW5e suggests using the Spell Point System rather than Spell Slots. This is an interface adjustment to make during character creation if you use points. Search the FG forum for implementing D&D 5e alternate spell point system.
- All spells (powers), some classes, and some items have item effects coded into them for use in the combat tracker. Use the Source selector in the Spell window to see Force Powers, Tech Powers, Items, or a class.
- All included races have pictures in case you forget what they look like.
- Starting Equipment Packs are available in Parcels.
- Backgrounds have trait tables available for rolling.
- All classes now prompt at level 3 for sub-class choices.
- Expanded choice of species (race) and languages to 30.

New Starship rules
These new rules basically has ships as complex as a player character with character sheets. I would suggest providing your players with their ship's sheet and using the FG interface for a star map, token movement, and dice rolling. But, at this time I don't know of a way to implement the starship combat of SW5e into the FG system.

** Reserving this post for future updates

Hey! I was testing the operational class, but the level 3 prompt was not available / working, also, for the Fighter Class, the Second Wind was not taking into account the Fighter level for the healing effect.

pico
November 29th, 2020, 20:00
hmm... I tested the Operative Practice selection yesterday. I'll double check it.

I've been playing a long regular 5e campaign and I'm pretty sure even in the regular D&D setup the DM/GM needs to update these class feature dice. Like bardic inspiration, sneak attack, second wind, etc. At least, I've always had to adjust these myself in Fantasy Grounds. There are even some normal spells that change depending on level, I just had to fix one of my clerics spells for this a few weeks ago. Just click on the magnifier glass or loop or whatever that icon is and update the dice used. If that's not true and I just don't know how it works, I'm happy to learn new things :)

Are you using FGU or Classic?

Thanks for checking the Operative stuff, I'm testing all classes now to see if I can find some critical stuff before starting a new campaign with the setting, I mean this, excellent work so far!

About the classes perks, on the Second Wind part, sure, I know about the setup for the heal ability but something is happening with the Ftr reference, see the image on what I'm using on a DnD campaign currently:

41525

It's exactly the same setup on the second wind on your setting, but, it's working on the DnD part, not in this one, probably something's happening with the Ftr reference around it, might be a good idea to check those if you can.

I'm testing on both versions of FG, same behavior on all.

Thanks for the help! And again, excellent work!

pico
November 29th, 2020, 22:45
Ah, ok, I see exactly what you mean. I hope it isn't what I think it is. But, for instance the Berzerker's unarmored defense doesn't work as expected either because FG hard-codes the class names in the Lua code... But, I have an idea to add a "spell" that you (the GM/DM) could add to the actions tab of a player so they can use these class features in the combat tracker... I'll post an update here and to the reference section of the module if I can solve it this way.

lordcygnus,
I've just installed a fresh copy of FGU and downloaded the modules and extension from github on a mac I never use just to be sure it was a fresh environment. I also tested on windows, but it's my development machine so I am always skeptical when things work where you develop them... of course it does.

When I drag the third level of operative onto the PC sheet I get prompted and the choice is reflected in the abilities tab.

Perhaps I've misunderstood the issue. But, I've made 3 new operatives and chosen a different practice for each.

Stay tuned on the class features front. I think I will need to do something similar to rob2e's add-on and the GM can drag the feature into the character's sheet action tab. The player can then use actions or apply effects in the combat tracker as needed.
I started this a while ago, the Guardian's channel force is in there already.

In the Spells windows pick the class as the "Source" and you will see what I mean. This seems like the fastest way to get something into player's hands that works.

In the meantime, it's easy to create effects and features as needed. Here's an excellent tutorial on creating the Fighting Style features: https://youtu.be/a-fJpe6duM0

Yup, I'm using a lot of guides for the Effect Creation part, so it's something I'm familiar with, no worries, I can figure out much of the programmatically effects on my own, I was just asking if the reference was reviewed since it's something related to the setting, but thanks anyway =)

If it isn't too much trouble, you could log into github and add a comment to this issue in the issue tracker https://github.com/BeeGrinder/FantasyGrounds-SW5e/issues/17. Then just update it with class features/effects you notice are needed. It's difficult for me to catch everything, and having input is invaluable.

The other option is to keep a running list in a post here and edit it rather than add more posts. I'll bookmark that post and use it as a reference in my issue tracker.

Either way, I'll be working on it and doing periodic updates to the module.

Done, comment and file examples there, as I've said on the thread, probably you can implement the features that are similar (and mostly the same) with each other comparing the classes between settings.

I'll be testing most of related effects on your Star Wars setting just to be sure that they can be implemented as such at your end.

Thanks!

Testing the Berserker right now, I've got a question about the available Archetypes, there are 4 for the PHB, two of them (Marauder and Warchief) are already in the setting, but there is an Augmented Approach that is not in any of the books, and seems a little odd, it has a lot of OP characteristics lol, can you confirm that Archetype for the Berserker and if you want me to review the Precision and Ballistic approaches as well (those two are not in the setting for the Berserker) let me know.

This is difficult to put diplomatically.

The SW5e rule set is an uncontrolled dumpster fire.

In March 2020 they announced the final version of the PHB. It was to be the final version and only have minor errata fixes. Anything new would be called expanded content, but the PHB would remain the same.
This did not happen.

I spent many months keeping up with the tweaks looking forward to this event. Then, the tweaking resumed almost immediately. I realized I could never keep up. Especially when they stopped carefully documenting what pages had changes from release to release. Fine for them, they are just updating one master PDF. But, maintaining a translation into electronic implementation of the rules into Fantasy Grounds became untenable. So, I am striving to add some stability to the rule set.

So, I stuck with the "final" March 2020 rule set. Since I can't do what everyone would want and "update everything all the time", I'd wait until someone brings up a specific issue.

So far, this is the first time anyone has brought up a specific issue with a later version of the PHB.

I will add "Update Berserker class" to my project list.
My question to you is... would you make this a higher priority than effects/features since they are pretty easy to do yourself since a GM only has to do what their players are actually using?

Thanks for the info, and as a developer, I completely understand the let downs of trying to be up to date with content like this, personally, I would prefer to update the content instead of adding the effects, because as you are saying, as a DM I can easily implement the feature effects on my own, it's a pretty straightforward thing to do if the DMs just stick to all the tutorials and wikis around FG.

On the other hands, a few of us knows how to make the content and implement it at some point for a setting, that's where you current work shines the most, so, if you ask me, I will absolutely prefer the updated content, since you know a lot better that myself you setting files (.mods. and .ext).

As I said before, I'm happy to help wherever I can to make this setting version as good as we can.

Great, thanks for the quick reply/fix, testing on both FGU and FGC, it seems that the Berserker class is working ok.

We've found something with the Consular class: there is no Way of Suggestion for the level 3 prompt selection, and in the Way of Lighting, the Electric Attunement has the word Affinity on it instead.

Also, we were trying to use the B2-HA Super Battle Droid, and the Rocket Launcher ACTION doesn't have a DC for the Dexterity Save, hence is not working as it should (check the other ACTION called Wrist Blaster Volley that has the DC 13 Dexterity saving throw), probably the rocket launcher one just needs a DC and that's it for fixing it.

Thanks!

* Check last point on the Additional Maneuvers, add it and put all the content present for it from the Remote Healer feature.
* Change Discoveries-Physician Pursuit descriptor to Discoveries (Doctor).
- Put a reference link to the Side Effects table already created
- Change Scholar Physician Side Effects name and references if possible.

In the Politician Pursuit:
* The Additional Maneuvers are being referenced from another set of skills (probably the Tactician Pursuit), change it to have the content for the Politician Pursuit and update references.
* Change the wording for Discoveries-Politician to Discoveries (Politician).

In the Tactician Pursuit:
* Change the wording for Discoveries-Tactician to Discoveries (Tactician).

Thanks!

lordcygnus,
Thank you for the detailed write up on each class. I've started adding them as projects in github. I have limited time over the next week, but should be able to hit them soon. It takes about 2-4 hours work to completely rebuild a class from a fresh copy/paste of the SW5e PHB pdf, so this should allow me to focus on what's changed rather than a wholesale redo.

I'd also like to figure out how to make some of these lists of optional features into something the player can drag into their character sheet when they choose them from the list... it's similar to how the warlock works, so I'm sure there's a way... but par5e can be tricky to figure out the "correct" way to do it. Currently they are just lists under the class feature that provides the list and players need to just type in their choices. I'll add this as a project after the updating is done.

I've also searched and found any changelogs from the sw5e project that have come out since my last update. Might be a good way to double check things:

Update to updating to the current (Nov. 2020) SW5e PDFs.


With the help of lordcygnus, the classes, backgrounds, feats, and races have all been updated.
Next is equipment. This should be done shortly. Keep an eye out.
Finally is spells...



Spells will be updated as time allows. These are symptomatic of the entire SW5e project.
In the past 10 months after declaring the "final" version of the PHB content, they have added over 100 new spells... at least, the count is still going.
I will not simply copy in the text. These will have full effects for use in the combat tracker. So this update will take time.

Why take the time to code effects for every spell? Because this is Fantasy Grounds. If you just want a simple spell name and some text, why not just use roll20? The automation of the combat tracker for the players and the GM are what FG is all about!
So, until this massive update is complete, simply add the spell to the players sheet and use the PDF.
If you see an NPC in my PHB module that uses a spell not update yet, tell me, and I will prioritize it so the NPCs all work in the combat tracker.

Thanks

I just wanted to say thank-you for all your hard work. It is very much appreciated. I started inputting everything manually in to my copy of FG and only got weapons and about 1/2 the NPCs entered. Nothing else. Then I asked in the facebook group if anyone had done an FG SW5e module and no one responded for days. Finally I googled it and this came up in the search. From here I was able to track down your files. They are awesome. I understand why they are read only due to the amount of work that went in to them as I can attest to the small amount of work I did on my own before finding your files. I only wish that there had been an unprotected version and I like to sort my NPCs my way but I can work within your categories just as well. Great job. THANK-YOU.

pico
February 10th, 2021, 15:17
Thank you Randor.
I'm not quite sure what you mean by read-only. As a GM you should be able to copy any NPC and modify it. I am trying to emulate the PHB and MM way of doing things from 5e.
Also, I have everything (all files, source, etc.) available to anyone who wants it available on github. You can find a link in the first post of this thread.

I am working on a complete overhaul that will be updated and hopefully in a single module. It hasn't been easy, so there have been some delays. But, it should be done in a matter of weeks.

February 14th, 2021, 01:43
Version 3.0 (pre-release) is ready for testing.
(do not use if in the middle of a campaign, let more testing happen please!)

This is a complete overhaul of my Fantasy Grounds module for SW5e.

- Everything in a single module file. So there's one mod and one extension. Available do download here (https://github.com/BeeGrinder/FantasyGrounds-SW5e/releases/tag/v3.0.1).

I need some more eyes on this, I will be testing this as much as I can, but I have limited time, so my own testing will be somewhat slow. Any assistance is appreciated.

Edit note: the release link above will be updated while testing until the final release of SW5e Fantasy Grounds version 3. So, check while testing to see if a new file version is available.

Hello, I'm starting a Star Wars campaign and just found this thread! Such amazing work will definitely be utiliziting this download! I have installed it and one thing I've noticed as an error is when Twi'lek language is brought onto a character sheet from the race it separates the language into Twi and Leki, instead of one language.

pico
February 15th, 2021, 00:28
huh... well, hadn't noticed that one before. Thanks for reporting it.

Looking deeper into this, for now you need to edit the character sheet entry for languages and enter the correct language as Twi'leki
I don't see any problem in the module XML, so this looks like a FG issue. If this continues to be the case, I may have to report it as a bug.

update:
This is indeed a bug in both FGU and FGC. It has been posted in the house of healing forum. But, since this is a long standing "feature" I would not expect fast action.

Work-Around: until FG is fixed do the following when creating a Twi'lek player character:

After dragging the race onto the character sheet, open the Abilities tab
Delete the false languages Twi and leki
Then manually enter a new language as Twi'leki


I will add a note about this in the SW5e reference section of the module.

Randor
February 16th, 2021, 07:54
Another great version Pico. Nice to have it all in one module and extension. I was wondering if you plan on fixing the NPCs: AT-AT, AT-TE, AT-ST, AAT, and the IG-227 Hailfire Class Droid? You have one of their actions listed as the Type of NPC and it makes it a little more difficult to sort NPCs by correct type. Also you could fix the Twi'Leki language issue just by removing the apostrophe in the race language information

pico
February 16th, 2021, 14:19
I've been struggling with the gargantuan size issue for a while. It's a bug with par5e, not Fantasy Grounds, so there's nobody to report it to. But, now I've written a post-processor for par5e, so I might be able to add a size fixer.

On the Twi'leki issue, if you add the language in a way that does not match the pull-down in the chat window, then the players who speak that language will not get auto-translation.

Also, Moon Wizard says a bug-fix is going in for this issue soon.

I'm utilizing your mod and adding some of the extended content to my campaign including starships, the way i'm making the star ships for FG is creating the ships and the deployments as classes (adding the ship as a playable character to the party) and creating Ventures in the feats and manually adding the Mods and equipment to the items. I'll let you know how it works in my campaign!

Also question (possible help) I've found this bomb *** theme but it's old and the original coder isn't working on the project anymore,

https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?53302-Genesys-(FFG-RPG)-work-in-progress

The Force Adept background code doesn't allow you to choose the skills from Deception, Insight, Persuasion, and Perception but instead adds the words "choose from..." instead of the pop up menu.

February 17th, 2021, 14:57
Thanks PjToledo91. I'll add the Force Adept issue to my list of v3 bugs.

On the starships and expanded content, I would love to have the time to look into these other things, but I'm just now getting barely enough time to look at the PHB and Monster manual stuff. So, that's my "fence".

I am leaving the other content up to those who would like to step in/up and publish their own modules. I only have time for the basic foundation. If I can ever convince one of my groups to actually play this game, that may change.

Hello,
first, thanks so much for your work on these modules.

I'm not sure what happened, perhaps with the latest update to FG unity, but the spells don't seem to be populating in character creation, nor is there a spell button. Spells are still listed on old character sheets. I tried creating a new campaign and using the modules/ext (one at a time) from version 2 3.02, and 3.05 without success. Which is why I'm wondering if it's a problem introduced by Fantasy grounds.

I'm running the latest FGU update which shows as 4.0.10 ultimate (2021-02-04).
44200

sparticusonfire
February 24th, 2021, 04:49
Nevermind, figured it out! There was indeed a change to the latest FGU. Customization of the side bar was moved to under options. I was able to add the missing buttons to the side bar. Force powers still don't show up in the character generator--not sure if that was a current feature or not.
Thanks.

Character Wizard is under construction for SW5e. As far as I know it has never worked well enough to create a usable SW5e character. Hopefully I'll get that fixed soon.

New update. Fixed character wizard issues. Plus other fixes.

And, there is now a new star field background extension (see first post for link) that will override the background of a theme. So, I'm using it with the new FG Dark theme and it looks great for a SW5e game.

Haven't figured it out yet but I'm using your mod and the players when connected to FG from my host game are unable to see the SW5e category under the "groups" filters. They can select it but a lot of the information is being defaulted into "Uncategorized" Or just simply not there for them on their end (not encountering it on my host game). Seems like a FG host connection issue but wanted to report.

pico
March 5th, 2021, 19:35
Sharkness, not sure which window you are talking about. If it's all of them, did you have them go to their Library->Modules and hit the "Load" button on the SW5e module? I recently started a new game and forgot that. It's easy to forget if you don't start new campaigns often.

(there is no need to have the player's download anything. They get the SW5e extension and module from the GM's server)

Sharkness
March 5th, 2021, 21:06
No I have the modules loaded and the players have to have the modules loaded as well is what I meant by having them download it.

pico
March 5th, 2021, 21:44
Ok. I'm using Unity. But, it shouldn't matter, they should both share extensions and modules the same way. I'm also assuming we are talking about the latest v3.x versions of the extension and module.

When setting up a new SW5e campaign,

select the normal 5e ruleset
then select the SW5e extension (the extension is required).
Start the campaign
after you (the GM) starts the campaign, go to Library-Modules, select the SW5e Player Book and hit the "Load" button
after each player connects, have them go to Library-Modules, select the SW5e Player Book and hit the "Load" button


On one occasion I had to have the players exit FG after doing the above and return to see everything, but it has not done that recently

I advise against having each player load their own copy of the extension and module. Since they are playing your game, they will get it downloaded to their cache automatically. Otherwise you may get conflicts if you update and they do not. I tested this last week on a fresh install of both the GM (Ultimate) copy and the generic player (free) software. It worked great. If you are still seeing issues, I can try it again.

March 6th, 2021, 22:35
I just wanted to say thanks again. I notice that in each version you are not only bug fixing, converting from 2 modules to one, but also adding more content either as it is published or more from fisto's codex. You are awesome dude. keep up the great work. I was hoping that in the next versions you might add the legendary bounty hunters from fisto's. Thanks in advance....

pico
March 6th, 2021, 23:23
Thanks Randor. I added a little, but I find that I've bitten off enough by doing the PHB and Monster Manual (Scum and Villainy). I've had to stop adding any more expanded content.

Randor
March 7th, 2021, 01:23
Pico, Do you know of any one using your data sets and making Adventure Modules? I am currently in the process of using your version 3.0.2 to convert the FFG Age of Rebellion starter adventure Rescue at Glare Peak for use with fantasy grounds.

pico
March 7th, 2021, 02:18
Sorry, I do not. I have been doing what you are doing for a new campaign. I'm "converting" the Edge of the Empire starter adventure as a short introduction for my DnD group. I'm also looking at some old Star Wars D20 modules as possible sources. They are much closer to how the SW5e would work and should be easier to convert.

Randor
March 7th, 2021, 02:27
If you are doing Edge of Empire stuff conversion, i'd be interested in maybe doing a file swap of the Age of Rebellion stuff I am doing for it, when it is done of course....I am sure that either adventure would work for us using your original game system files. Maybe we can take turns cranking out adventures based on the older stuff too... If I get to adding any more NPC's from Fisto's I will include them too.

Randor
March 16th, 2021, 21:09
Pico, with the updates to the SW5e PHB that were published today.... are those going to be implemented in an update for your modules? or are you too busy converting previous version adventures to tackle this right now? converting my own adventures i have found it a little daunting as well as time consuming, so i would certainly understand not being available to update the module at the moment.

pico
March 16th, 2021, 21:15
The SW5e PHB was announced to be "final" early in 2020 and would only have corrections and typo fixes.

This was obviously not the case, and they have pretty much rewritten every class, background, spell and even equipment since it was "final".

This is why my work has a download link to the PDF that matches what I've got in my module.

I was hoping for something like this! Iíve been using FG for a bit now and would love to run a Star Wars based campaign even if it wasnít official, just something to bounce basic attributes against and some NPCs ideas, so this is perfect! Thanks for leaning forward and doing this!


This module and extension implement the SW5e rule set. This is a 5e (OGL) based conversion to a Star Wars universe.

This work includes the PHB and Scum and Villainy (Monsters/NPCs) PDF content from the SW5e project (link below)

The following extension and module must be loaded together to host a game using this ruleset.

Extension: The extension named "sw5e.ext" must be in your extension folder and selected when you create your 5e campaign.
Modules: The "SW5e Player Book.mod" must be in your modules folder and load from the Library->Modules tabs.

My testing has shown that the module and the extension are compatible with both FGU and FGC

FG Forum says my module is too big to upload, so you must get them from these links:

Current Version:
Download release version 3.0 here: release 3.0 download from GitHub (https://github.com/BeeGrinder/FantasyGrounds-SW5e/releases/tag/v3.0.5)

Old Version for old campaign compatibility:
Download the version 2.0 release from here: release 2 download from GitHub (https://github.com/BeeGrinder/FantasyGrounds-SW5e/releases/tag/2.0.0)

SW5e project website: https://www.sw5e.com/
(I have no affiliation with the sw5e project)

SW5e Content:
10 new classes with dozens of subclasses
35 new races (Species and driods)
35 new backgrounds
100 new feats
400+ new spells (Powers)
390 new Items/equipment
276 new NPCs
new weapons, creature types, damage types, skills, languages, and a single currency

All my sources are on github: https://github.com/BeeGrinder/FantasyGrounds-SW5e

Now includes spell and item effects inspired by and with permission of rob2e under condition that no money is ever charged for this work. Thanks!
Spells with coding have (*FG Coding) in their description. Those without this note may need to be manually coded until I can update the newer spells.

Be sure to read the notes below AND the reference section for DMs in the module. Because the SW5e rules do not perfectly match a true 5e game, some things do not function quite like a real 5e game. When I find these behaviors I make a note in these two areas. I try to fix them, but if I can not find a solution, I do my best to warn you so you are not surprised.

I've also created a starfield background extension (https://github.com/BeeGrinder/FantasyGrounds-SW5e/releases/tag/v3.0.7)
This extension replaces the current theme's background with a simple starfield. Works great with FG Dark or Simple Gray themes.

Also, see the SW5e reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/sw5e/

released update 3.0.10 of main module.

More spells have usable effects to make FG automated combat easier.

Hi Pico,

First off, thank you very much for creating and maintaining this brilliant extension.

I have recently upgraded Unity to Version 4.1.1 (2021-05) and since then have been unable to roll skill/ability checks. I grab the value from the character sheet then get the below error in the log. The roll doesn't happen and just the value of the ability is put in the chat. This also happens for Party Sheet rolls.

"[5/19/2021 12:37:32 PM] [ERROR] Script execution error: [string "scripts/manager_action_check.lua"]:41: attempt to index global 'ActorManager2' (a nil value)

(Filename: C:\buildslave\unity\build\Runtime/Export/Debug/Debug.bindings.h Line: 35)"

I have tried this on a fresh campaign and I have downloaded the latest version of the EXT and MOD files from the Git hub page, this does not change things. This also doesn't happen on a Standard (fantasy) D&D5e campaign so I think it is related to the SW5E extension.

Is this something that is known about?

Kind Regards,
Ritchie

pico
May 19th, 2021, 23:06
Thanks Ritchie887
I am able to create a test game in 4.1 and all these seem to work.

Another check is make sure you deleted the old extension and/or module. They have different file names because of version numbers. So, downloading doesn't necessarily overwrite.
Make sure the old SW5e Supplement module is DELETED.

Finally, to make sure something else isn't interfering, when loading the campaign, make sure only the SW5e extension is selected and the SW5e module is the only think loaded. The last big update caused a lot of problems in this and many other extensions. But, so far, I'm not seeing any issues.

Update: On one of my computers I had an old SW5e campaign with some characters rolled up by some friends... I upgraded it to 4.1 and did not see any issues.

This reinforces the theory that it must be some sort of interference from another extension or module.

Sorry, but I can't think of any other things to try.

RitchieB87
May 20th, 2021, 09:16
Thanks for looking into this. You were right, it was another extension.
ADVDIS_Hotkeys_v0.4.ext (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?44212-Advantage-amp-Disadvantage-hotkey-extension).

Seems like I had not removed this from the SW5E Campaign and had not added it to the Test 5E Campaign. Removing/Adding this extension breaks/fixes things.

Sorry to have used up your time!

I'm prepping to run a campaign using this .ext/.mod you've made pico. So far, I'm really impressed.

As for the Starship implementation, I think what I'm going to do is build the Starship using a PC character sheet. I think I can create "enemy" ships using NPC sheets and get the relevant info built so that the usual 5E automation actually works in combat. I'm going to test this out tomorrow with an actual PC, a PC Ship, and a NPC ship and see if I can make it so it all works correctly the way I want it to.

SilentRuin
June 9th, 2021, 14:35
Just a note as Vex is posting here - as all my extensions work with this I have not attained the level of "lazy DMing" with the data I normally wish. So I've spent the last 24 hours (since I've heard of this) doing all the data in the PHB mod of this with a supplement which has every power/effect defined for items/feats/etc. so they play nice manually or with equipped effects like Aridhro's 5E data (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?67481-5E-Automatic-Effects) does.

I'll be dropping it in here for free with permission for the author of this thread to completely incorporate it into his .mod (rather than having a supplement - or just leaving it as it is). When it comes out - usually caveats apply - use at own risk. Here is a screen shot of where I am so far (Just hit H's). Will probably be another day or two or three before completed. Keep in mind I have yet to play a game in this and just doing prep work to make sure I have to do as little as possible in the way of DMing.

Well the advantage of being retired and having a break in my COS game that I need a one shot for and chose this based on Vex notifying me of its existence. As everything in this awesome thing is free - I figured it was only fair to do this work pro bono also. Plus if you add it in after I post it you can maintain it as I'll have no interest in doing so ;)

Ok, using Zodiak's mod as a base, I have modified his work and added in my own and I've put together a .mod that works fairly well at bringing Starship combat from the SW5e rulest into this Fantasy Grounds 5E workaround that Pico has made. I could type several long blocks of text explaining how to use it, but instead, just watch the video. I know it's an hour long, but it is comprehensive.

I hope this helps people trying to figure out how to do some starship combat in FG.

Some helpful Extensions that I think make the experience better:
- SilentRuin's Extensions (https://www.dmsguild.com/product/336265/Fantasy-Grounds-Unity-SilentRuins-Extension-BUNDLE), specifically Combat Groups and Equipped Effects.
- Kelrugem's Ongoing Temporary Hitpoints (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?56194-Extension-Ongoing-temporary-hitpoints), this can automate shield recharging (sort of). But if you want it RAW, you'll have to roll manually every turn. I prefer using this extension and not having the shields necessarily recharge cumulatively, but more like how TEMP HP works in FG already, this just makes it move smoother/faster.

I use FFG, old SWRPG/Saga (Wizards), and even the old SWd6 adventures. There is a TON of them out there, even entire campaign guides.

A guy published an entire collection of Star Wars tokens (mostly clone wars era) in the reddit group r/swrpg search it for tokens, they are still published on his google drive from what I can see.

I hope it's alright to link the reddit posts here for these tokens:

What my goals were:
1) Make sure it works with equipped effects extension (this is for me, Vex, and Razzed after all and we all have it).
2) Make sure people without equipped effects can use the data manually. (this was a freaking nightmare and took 100 of hours - had a known before I started I would have "let them eat" cake if they didn't have the extension)

[Warning: If you remove something that is crosslinked that link is an ID in the DB which will be reused. That means it will point to garbage (a new empty item - or something that just filled up the ID that was deleted and reused) just FYI. For example, updating a power/effect for a spell requires you to delete the old one which will make any links to it garbage which must be replaced with the new link.]

Here are some of the things I did:
1) Made sure I defined all feature/feat/trait and items with power(spell)/custom effects where generically feasible (so many special case rules that I did very few as not many are generic).
2) Crosslink all powers I created to their respective feature/feat/trait/item.
3) Crosslink all feature/feat/item to the powers I made for them.
4) Replaced most/all classes/backgrounds/tables with relevant links.
5) Created missing data which was in text form - you can't choose text to be part of your abilities or action tab. This involved recreating A LOT of lists and a lot of data that was not there as linked data.

This is a supplement to pico's current .mod on page 1. This new .mod is supplied in much the same way Aridhro's 5e Automatic Effect modules were, providing the name matches required for equipped effects to do its thing. Where you see more than one of something use the "SW5e Extras" version. Charwizard will pick up all the SW5e_Extra.mod first where overridden due to the alphabetical nature of how searches work.

If you have equipped effects extension this will just automatically keep your action tab up to date as you equip/unequip or add features/feats/traits into your abilities tab or drop things into the CT. To get it to redo the actions tab you'd have to delete all the entries in it and re drop it into the CT.

If you only want pieces of it - simply load - copy pieces you want to your local DB and unload. Presto done. But its designed as one solid piece and has NO GUARUNTEE of me EVER - as in EVER - maintaining it. I put this all in a data form that allowed me to be my true lazy DM self and use equipped effects with it - so build this .... monstrosity.

All Power definitions I provide are only suggestions and likely have to be modified before actual use based on description - think of them as head starts you can optionally use, redefine, or delete and do your own thing.

I provide the campaign I used to create it which had SW5e.Player.Book-3.0.10.mod (pico's page 1 mod) and my SW5e_Extras.mod (supplement to pico's for equipped effects and full linkable data). I have no plans to keep up to date with the constant changes of SW5e pdf's and will be using this as is for my games. I will provide the campaign I used to create it you can modify your own version. IF you replace a power - YOU WILL BREAK one or more LINKS (spells/feats/backgrounds/tables). BEWARE. If you change them in your PC sheet - you will break nothing. As so many power/effect are super specialized I did not provide many - but there is going to be an action tab entry for everything relevant in the abilities tab (and if you have the first link display option set on equipped effects you will see the link expanded into text so you don't have to click it). In any case, this was a royal pain that I would not have done had I known the amount of work it involved.

Completed.

Coding for automated FG behaviors is VERY time consuming. But, it's also why no other VTT even holds a candle to FG in my opinion.

Thanks for doing this. I'm barely nearing the end of the nearly 400 spells. This should make everyone who really uses FG combat tracker features very happy.

It's a supplemental .mod not a stand alone. Though as I stated earlier - you could easily combine them into one mod. Right now I've only overridden what I had to. And only the classes are left to finish - though if you want to only use berserker and consular class types your good to go :) Though all the old ones are still there - they just don't have any feature power defintions or defining of any text lists into linkable data.

First off, I want to say thank you to pico, VeX, SilentRuin, and everyone else who have worked on this so far! I've been looking it over the past couple of days and I'm really excited to try it out. I've started converting/inputting some info for an adventure that I'd like to run and I'm curious how any of you who have played with these rules are handling the "reload" property of weapons, specifically for NPC's. I'm not seeing it in the statblocks that I've looked through, so is it best to just ignore that? I kind of like the idea of an NPC having to take an action to reload now and then (although compared to some of the older Star Wars RPG rulesets, the ammo counts on weapons in SW5e seem low) but I don't know if there's a good way to keep track of the ammo on an NPC.

I can safely say I will never volunteer to do this DATA HELL type of project again. I hate data, and its only been completely reaffirmed.

More than 100 hours worth of data entry.
~100 NPC corrections to work in CT actions tab with equipped effects.
~900 powers for features/feats/traits/items for PCs and NPCs to work with equipped effects
All classes, and a lot of backgrounds and feats redone to respect links to powers, NPCs, and items where relevant.
Whatever light sources for items required powers have been added.
Custom effects added to complement (duplicate) power effects where relevant to work with equipped effects.

Keep in mind that the powers and their effects are best guess entries and meant to be used, changed, ignored by players as they see fit - they are not an end all in some cases just a start point.

The campaign I used to create this and the mod it built are both provided here (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?47628-SW5e-a-star-wars-home-brew-on-the-5e-rule-set&p=606521&viewfull=1#post606521). The SW5e_Extras.mod is designed to work as a supplement (in conjunction with) pico's SW5e.Player.Book-3.0.10.mod (put in modules) and his sw5e-3.0.2.ext (put in extensions) from page 1 of this thread.

While I may entertain updating for obvious bug fixes as I'm about to start my own campaign with all this - I am NOT going to actively support this. Hence providing the campaign file and warnings on how you can screw up the links if not done correctly.

SilentRuin, I feel your pain. Add to this the SW5e writer's habit of completely revising their PHB every 6-12 months... it's very difficult to keep up. They need to consider switching to the WotC (and every other serious RPG) of nailing down their basic rules and publishing enhancements as new content rather than rewriting half the PHB every year. It doesn't effect most simple VTT where it's just an indexed document, but kills work on something as intricate and automated as FG.

I've stopped focusing on module work and just started writing software to make dealing with their constant changes... and it's not working well because their areas of change are not predictable.

Yeah so happy I was able to use all your work or it would have been impossible. And I don't plan on keeping up with the changes. I just wanted a game platform that would work with the equipped effects automation and then run it for my players. I had to rename some conflicting names in SW5e features/feats/traits/items and NPC/PCs where they used the same name for completely different capabilities - had to make them unique. So this is just a locked in version I don't plan on updating but just using and modifying in my own campaign. First session and already I could not find a police droid so made my own Z-59 one with 1d4 damage and ability to stun if they failed on a save after max damage (4) was done. So really all this is just the basics for building a campaign on. As far as I'm concerned - unless you tell me you update your stuff (in a way that does not require me to update tons of my stuff) - I've frozen these mods in amber and will be using them as is in my campaign (with modifications as I see fit as I go along).

Again - really grateful for the work you did as it allowed me to build on it and save a bunch of time referencing or breaking out text into linkable features. I've corrected things as I've found them so just use the SW5e version if you see more than one in All listings and you'll be fine.

The reason I included the actual campaign I used to build the mod was so that you could include whatever you wanted by having the source local DB versions.

For sure in an ideal world you would incorporate the entire thing into your mod and maintain it all as a cohesive mod in your single mod on page 1. And if it was fully workable with equipped effects I'd dump mine completely and just use yours.

And I need no credit attributed if you do.

I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong on my end but I've been adding some NPCs for an adventure I hope to run, and it seems like FG isn't parsing some of the Tech and Force "spells" properly for NPCs.

For example, Acid Dart has a description saying it requires a "ranged tech attack". When adding an NPC with this power into the CT, it doesn't properly parse the attack. Changing this to read "ranged spell attack" will allow it to work correctly.

I know very little about coding extensions, so I don't know if there's a way to force FG to recognize "tech" and "force" like it would "spell", or if the best thing to do would be to just change the wording in the spells so that FG recognizes them. If the later is the case, and if pico and Silentruin agree, I can go ahead and do a little search and replace and then post the edited files here.

This sounds like I may have missed some of the way the NPC "spells" are working. I actually get very little specific feedback, and without it I have to stumble into issues while working on updates.

On the force/tech vs. spell, I gave up changing it in the FG code and just started rewording them all as "spell", much like things with the magic property vs. SW5e "enhanced" property. I just gave up and use "magic" to keep things working in FG.

I'll take a look at my spell lists and see which ones still say force/tech attack vs spell.

Not a problem. I opened up the modules and did a quick find/replace changing "ranged tech" and "ranged force" to "ranged spell", and the same for melee versions. Just thought I'd bring it to attention.

I basically followed pico's lead - there are no spells at all in SW5e. The tech powers are manage by techcasting number of prepped items as described in the techcasting description. Same for force powers using forcecasting number of prepped items as described in the forcecasting description. Spell levels are simply assigned to the max values (though that is arbitrary as they are only used to fake FG into allowing them to process). Spell slots radio buttons are never even used/consumed - only techcasting and forcecasting radio buttons are.

Having said that - you can run your games however you wish - or change them to what best suits your game play.

As the mechanics of how they are defined and such are different I don't plan on using them as spells.

July 11th, 2021, 19:30
I found the issue, last year when the SW5e project decided to rename/replace over 250 "spells" I used their website JSON to repopulate my module generator. I did not reword everything I had from my last update.

I try to be as transparent as possible and put anything like this in the reference section of the module. For the purposes of running on the FG 5e rules engine (where many things are hard coded, especially the phrasing standards of Wizards of the Coast) I was going on the assumption that all "spells" will be worded as 5e spells and "enhanced items" will be worded as "magic" so the FG engine will treat them as such.

I'll add this ranged/mele spell attack wording to my to-do for my next update.
Also, with the generosity of SilentRuin, I will likely add all the Effects button items for all these sub-class/equipment/ammo, etc. are easier to work with. (Thanks again SilentRuin)

edited for note: My work is ramping up with several high-priority projects, plus I'm looking at going into a legal nightmare with the builder behind my home who has been flooding my yard for 2 years. So I will work on this as much as time allows.

I noticed that the human ability score increase (the one for the race itself, not for any class) appears to not parse fully.

It currently reads:

One ability score of your choice increases by 2, and two different abilities of your choice increase by 1. Alternatively, four ability scores of your choice each increase by 1.

The choice of the +2 increase works fine, but nothing else. Changing it to read as below will fix it to allow the choice of the two scores with +1 as well (change is in bold):

One ability score of your choice increases by 2, and two different ability scores of your choice increase by 1. Alternatively, four ability scores of your choice each increase by 1.

The alternate method of +1 to four stats still would have to be done manually, of course.

I should also note that to replace the original Human race with the SW5e Extras version in an existing character you need to realize dropping it over the old one will duplicate some abilities which you must delete. You also want to hit X on the form that asks you to update the stats so you don't bump them up higher than they should be (you should have already added them in correctly when you originally made the human character).

Added Human override in SW5e_Extras for this fix.

I put in a fix for it in my personal version and had just posted here in case one of you wanted to add it in to the modules. Good to know for anyone else who comes across this though.

I just wanted to give a heads-up and point out that the IFT: CUSTOM(Rage) effects that are coded should be IF: CUSTOM(Rage) since the Rage effect would be on the PC and not on the target.

Fixed SW5e_Extras.mod to correct multiple issues with IFT usage and also fixed Action Surge to initially only be 1 preparation (is not 2 until 17th level).

Updated SW5e_Extras.mod for medpack equipped power - decided having one of each type of Hit dice + constitution to heal was better than nothing. Plus was pain to recover HD if a player actually tried to use one to heal with for this. Targeted heals as they can be used on you or another - you just have to pick the relevant heal that applies to targets Hit dice.

I think it's worth noting that this takes the user's CON bonus, as opposed to the target's. I'm not sure of a better way to do it though, other than maybe having to manually add the target's CON bonus as a modifier before hitting the heal button (or manually adding it after).

Why I left it blank to start with. But during play it was evident something was needed and I'm not about the existing rules - I'm about the play and nothing "breaking it". The players reading this and clicking on their Hit Dice (removing one till a long rest) messed things up so that I had to repair it. This avoids it by giving them a template to work from. You have to pick the relative dice of the target and their constitution (if not self) and roll it. Or just have them do it manually with a matching HD and add their CON to it and manually subtract from their wounds. But as most things will be self - this is going to work in almost all the cases.

I understand and I hope I didn’t come across as criticizing how you had done it, I appreciate the work you’ve put in here.
At the time I was looking it over I thought I’d point it out in case others are following this and run into some confusion. Although now that I’ve thought about it more, it’s certainly not a big deal and easy enough to manage so my post probably wasn’t needed in the first place lol.

Not at all - was just explaining the why and how I do it for my players (will do it from now on anyway).

I mean I made up my own space combat completely due to the needless complexity and non fun of SW5E. I shall include my campaign's notes for my rules and a screen shot of some of the ships. Basically the ships are all NPCs that the players play instead of anything with their PC's. With some extensions I let the players only see the same faction in their CT and only see the NPC ships they are currently playing (own). (note: I've corrected the fighter lasers to show (1/2) instead of (2) to show they have 1 action that fires twice during that one action - as per text at one target. Picture showing NPC sheet is incorrect with (2) showing.)

Nice, I'll definitely take a look at it. I have yet to start using these rules for a game, just been working on prepping an adventure and trying to fine-tune some of the effects and such for how my brain works lol, while my group finishes up some other adventures we've been running. I'm really excited to try it out though!

Well as you notice - every session I finish I have more corrections to the game data (the way I want it for better playability in FGU) - and we are only on level 2 chars so far. So I expect to find more stuff as time goes by.

Fixed SW5e_Extras.mod - Rangers Quarry effect was missing "s" at end so would not match - fixed.

Fixed SW5e_Extras.mod - Evidently I've done all the (C) stuff wrong so needed to fix Gleaming Outline, Affect Mind, and Target Lock.

SilentRuin, your work is much appreciated.

Would not have done it at all but for your work. Between Vex's campaign and mine we are finding bugs in almost every session so I'd not expect things to settle down anytime soon. Players get new powers and we find something to fix or make more handy. And we don't even USE all the potential combinations. So hopefully others who use this stuff will chime in here when they find something off.

Yes, by using your Extras module, I can compare yours to how it looks in my work.
Many of these I had no idea weren't working in mine. For instance, the background feat roll table links to nowhere in mine. I had no clue that was happening.

If ANYONE READING this find anything, even minor, please report. I not only don't mind bug reports, I need them.

Just remember if you copy all my stuff into yours BEWARE THE LINKS! I usually have to add powers into a dummy char and then edit the db.xml to correct the original SW5e Extras version by copying the <action data into the real data so that I don't have to redefine the links everywhere. They have to be correct in every list - spell/npc/item/race(other tab and main tab)/background (other tab and main tab)/feats/tables/etc. These are easily broken and mangled.
