    And that's fine. I should have said, that it bothers me because I wasn't sure if we we're doing something incorrectly or if it just wasn't automated. Now that I know, it bothers me...less. I appreciate the work. I agree with the other posts that I would personally wanted it automated if paying for a program like this, I assumed that's part of the attraction, the other part, and what we use it for, is connecting friends that are across the world.

    Thanks for the update!

    Automation Bug:
    Product: COM
    Class: Vanguard
    Automation is adding 8+con stamina for each level. Should be 7+con.

    Core Functionality Issue:
    Need capability for rolling ranged combat maneuvers, as well as EAC combat maneuvers.

    Use cases:
    CRB: Dirty Trick specifically states GM option to allow ranged dirty tricks w/extremely small range+increments
    COM: Vanguard gains ability to use EAC for all combat maneuvers at 5th level.
    COM: Flare Solarian with Agile Wavelengths gains ability to do ranged combat maneuvers with 30 foot range with their EAC-attacking weapon.

    I think you can make all of those work.

    So are you saying 21-100% hits? That's as it should be. 20 or lower misses per CRB 253. Did you read that wrong?

    I've found that for some reason any time a PC rolls critical hit damage it applies as "nonlethal," resulting in the targets taking on the "Unconscious," "Stable," and "Prone" effects instead of the "Dead" effect whenever that critical hit is a killing blow (my players are all level 1 right now, so more often than not when they roll a crit it's a killing shot). This happens regardless of the type of weapon used or the kind of damage it imparts. Regular damage rolls apply lethal damage as expected (provided that the "Nonlethal" modifier is not applied. That works as it should).

    When it comes to automation I have taken allot into consideration, at first I tried to automate as much as I could, then came across the community wants issue so allot was taken out.
    When it comes to automating abilities into the system first it takes allot to program them in but the big issue would be that not 100% of them would be automated and how would a player know what ones are automated and what ones were not. So you would end up adding a bonus that was already automated. So the decision was made to have them manual so the player knows what he is doing.
    Plus automated and editable is hard to do as to get something automated it has to go out and get the information then calculate to write the number after that if you edit the number it's just going to revaluate thru the automation and put it back. This is why most things have a Mod box for you to place a number in to be included in the calculation.

    The automation should occur at the time of leveling up and shouldn't continue to check thereafter. That should allow for editing/customization after the level-up automation. Basically automation should only occur once when applicable. Would that make sense?

    Found something minor in Dead Suns 5 when running it: The Core Facility map in Pt 3 is set to 1 square = 5 ft in FG when in the module it's 1 square = 10 ft.
