    Wow, that's very generous. I will play around with the Core calendar so I start to understand what's involved.

This is the code pointed to by the <lunardaycalc> and <periodvarcalc> tags.
    Unfortunately, for rulesets not layered on top of CoreRPG, it's not as simple as this. All of the base calendar code would need to be created in an extension compatible with the ruleset being used. As the CoreRPG calendar functionality is pretty self contained (a sidebar button opens the calendar window and it doesn't interact much with other aspects of FG - other than posting to the chat window) it should be fairly straightforward to take the calendar code in CoreRGP and make an extension compatible with the ruleset being used.

    @Thete - which ruleset are you using?


    FG Product Development status: Pathfinder Playtest Ruleset and add-ons: In development. Pathfinder Bestiary, Pathfinder Bestiary 2, Pathfinder Bestiary 3 (in store).

    Doh, I am too used to having all that base code built into CoreRPG. I forgot that if you are not based on it, it could be anything in the ruleset. The one I posted earlier will work for any CoreRPG based ruleset, but obviously it will not likely work for something totally custom.

    This is very kind of you! I will probably run a core campaign purely as a calendar if I can't get it working with the older ruleset (having an excuse to explore all the additional features in Core is actually v. appealing) Also others who use Core for WFRP setting will appreciate this!

    That sounds promising! I'm using the neilgfoster's wfrpv3 ruleset.

    That doesn’t have the calendar code. Someone would have to write an extension to bring the calendar code and graphics from CoreRPG into the WFRP3 ruleset.

    I'll put it on my personal todo list (I'm very slow thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
