    MUSE - Map Unit Settings Extension (CoreRPG)

    MUSE, Map Unit Settings Extension for CoreRPG.

    Works with FG 3.3.7.

    Not compatible with the AD&D ruleset as it's built into it already.

    This extension should work for CoreRPG rulesets. It will allow you to set the unit size of a grid/hex instead of just the standard 5ft. The default is 5ft. A lot of the older games use 10ft unit size and this will allow those DM/players to properly see distances for those maps.

    The current version of the extension is attached to this post.

    Here is what it looks like in action in CoreRPG using 5ft unit. Note the two highlighted points. The top bar, you'll need to enable grid tools and then you'll see the unit size box.



    Here is an example with 10ft.



    If there is a version I am working on it will reside on the GitHUB repo here :GitHUB, MUSE

    Most of this was put together using bits from the SavageWorlds ruleset so I can't take credit for the hard work. What parts I did put together tho you can do as you will with this extension.

    changelog
    • 1.2 - fixed bug in "read only" mode when using cone/line/distance hostkeys.
    • 1.3 - fixed bug with AOE templates (Circle/Cone/Square).
    • 1.7 - added support for "metric" (decimal)
    • 1.8 - Updates for 3.3.7 release.
    • 1.9 - Fixed issue that caused unit sizes with decimals to be calculated incorrectly.

    Version update.

    Removed the <ruleset> specification, I thought it would allow all rulesets that include CoreRPG to see it but apparently not. I've remove that restriction now but just know this will only work with CoreRPG rulesets (rulesets that include CoreRPG or CoreRPG proper).

    How does it affect token sizing? If automatic token sizing is enabled, will medium size tokens now take up one 10 ft grid or will they take up 1/4 of a 10 ft grid?

    Far as I know the tokensize will be adjusted based on the unit, not the unit size. 1 unit is 1 unit. Whether its considered 10 ft or 5 ft I don't think matters. Mind you if you change the unit size while the tokens are there I'm not sure what will happen. When I placed tokens on it they scaled to the unit (square) as you'd expect.

    Here is the same tokens in CoreRPG I used in the 5ft example using 10ft. This answer your question? I use the auto-scale option of "80%".

    edit: this was fixed in update 1.3

    I just found that when using this extension it will make the "pointers" for shapes (cone/square/etc) limited to just some burst templates. I'll look at fixing this when I return from work travel this weekend.

    Update: 1.3

    Found and fixed the issue with the aoe templating (circle/square/cone). You can now place them on the map not just use the quick draw mode for them.
