    5E Enhancer

    5E Enhancer

    Current Version: v0.4.0.



    A community extension I'm writing to improve D&D 5E in Fantasy Grounds Unity.


    Design Goals


    A rewritten minimalist streamlined version of the original 5E Combat Enhancer Classic including a number of broader ranged improvements for playing 5E, written for Fantasy Grounds Unity.



    Features

    For a complete and up to date feature list, consult the GitHub ReadMe file here:

    https://github.com/StyrmirThorarins/...ster/README.md

    Some features are highlighted in the posts below.



    Installing

    The extension is available on GitHub here: https://github.com/StyrmirThorarins/FG-5E-Enhancer


    1) Open the folder "- Extension Files" https://github.com/StyrmirThorarins/...ension%20Files
    Download the latest version of the extension file: "5E-Enhancer v?_?_?.ext"

    Contains:
    This is the actual extension, it includes the compressed codebase and a number of graphics.

    2) Copy this file to your extension folder (example: Fantasy Grounds\Data\extensions\ [place file here] ).

    3) Enable the '5E Enhancer v?_?_?' extension for your campaign in Fantasy Grounds.



    Helping Out / Supporting

    I've spent countless hours working on and writing the code used in this extension, since the start of its independent precursor the 5E Combat Enhancer Classic in December of 2018.

    If you enjoy the extension and would like to show your appreciation or support future development of it. There's a couple of things you could do.


    1) It would help me a lot if you "starred" the GitHub project by clicking the star to the right of the project name on the GitHub page of the project.




    2)
    If you would like to send me a donation or contribution for my work on this extensions. Here is a direct PayPal link that you can use to buy me a beer, meal or something of the sort.

    If you want to report a bug then please use this template.

    Bug Report

    Are you using Fantasy Grounds Unity? (I only support FGU with this extension. If you're using FG classic I'll refer you to finalized version of my 5E Combat Enhancer instead.)

    Is your FG software up to date?

    Do you have the latest version of the extensions installed? (You can see the most up to date version number in the first post on page 1, the version number is printed in FG on start in the chat.)

    How much memory is Fantasy Grounds using while the error occurs? (You can check this in the Task Manager if you're using Windows)

    Please post the console error printout here:
    (This is the error log window text. It can be opened by typing '/console' in the FG text window if it didn't open by itself. Also if there are no output errors, state that here.)

    If you create a new (clean) campaign, does the error still occur, with ONLY the 5E Enhancer extensions enabled?

    Can you recreate the error consistently?

    What are the precise steps to recreating the error?

    Does this always happen?

    Does this only happen when using a specific module, map, NPC, PC, weapon, etc.?
    (The more in depth information on which these are the better.)

    Do you have a screenshot you could share?

    Any further information that could help to replicate and trace the error?

    Features, Interface

    - Content Share, allows you and your players to right click on spells, character feats, features and traits and post the descriptive text directly to the chat text by selecting the new 'Post Text in Chat' menu option at the bottom.

    - New menu options in your settings, under '5E Enhancer, Window Resizing'.
    Set as default window sizes on activation. But you can enable larger windows for any or all windows from the window menu.
    Resizes windows on the fly to whatever setting you choose.
    You can return to the default window sizes at any time.
    If a window has been resized manually and is therefore in the 'windowstate.xml' file of your campaign, that takes precedence over the extension. This enables you to manually configure any windows you'd like.
