    Current HP Extension for 5E Ruleset

    This is an extension for the 5e Ruleset to add player and NPC a new field containing Current HP to the player Character Sheets and the Combat Tracker. Below is more information about this extension. This has been created as a new thread as the original extension was created by xxXEliteXxx. I've taken it and added further support for updating in the Combat Tracker and NPCs support.

    Changes and Additions
    • Adds a new field to the Character Sheet and Combat Tracker that displays the Current HP of creatures.
    • The value of this new current hp field updates when the number of wounds are changed on the Character Sheet of Combat Tracker.
    • The value of wounds will update if the value of current hp is changed in either the Character Sheet or Combat Tracker.
    • Changed the display order on the Character Sheet in the Wounds area from WND—MAX—TMP to HP—MAX—TMP—WND to better reflect the order on the Combat Tracker and more logical display the information (for me).
    • Added Current HP to the Host and Client Combat Tracker.
    • Updated script to update the color of both Current HP and Wounds on the Character Sheet and Combat Tracker.
    • Adjusted labels on Combat Tracker to reflect the all caps lettering of the character sheet.


    Update 10/28/2018 Version 2.5
    • Fixed bug where Using Edit Current HP in the Combat Tracker wouldn't update the Current HP on the Character Sheet.
    • Fixed bug where the health condition color wasn't updating when modifying the Current HP from the Host Machine to the Client Machines.


    Here is a video showing how the extension works for both the GM and Players

    Quick question. I downloaded the ext., changed the ruleset as indicated but nothing is working. The extension is not showing up on the load campaign screen to activate it and in game all I have is the HP/TMP/WND categories on the CT and PC sheet.
    What am I doing wrong? Do you need to have both extensions installed?
    This is what I have:

    @Tielc - the extension file in post #1 is invalid in two ways:
    1) The files needs to be zipped up from within the extension directory, not from outside of it.
    2) Use normal ZIP compression, not 7z.

    @Doomskull - this is why you can't see the extension in FG.

    Recommendation to any extension developer reading this - please always do a test on your extension .ext file before publicly sharing. It saves wasted time if there is an issue. Even experienced developers mess up sometimes, we forget something or click the wrong thing, etc. - I always test the .ext file for any extensions I create before uploading to the forums.

    I would also recommend in this case that the developer just override the "record_char_main.xml" because expecting folks to know what you're talking about and get it all right is probably expecting to much (just watched the video).

    Yeah, modifying the base ruleset means that the next time an update is ran their edited 5E.pak file would be overwritten. So best to include in the extension if at all possible. The whole file doesn't need to be overwritten - just the <windowclass name="charsheet_main"> section.

    To give you an example of what I mean. In the extension.xml file use the something like this:

    Code:
    <base>
        <includefile source="campaign/record_char_main.xml" />
    </base>
    Will override the the record_char_main.xml file included in the 5E.pak file with your fixed version. Just make sure to create "campaign/" and place your working copy of the xml there.

    If/when Smiteworks updates the label to have a name then you can just use a merge/replace.

    Extensions are a best effort by the developers done on their free time. This whole telling people how to release something freely developed is hogwash.

    @Tielc, you have a minor bug in your packaging as pointed out above, other than that, from the video it looks like a neat addition, I'll have to use it in my 5e one-shots.

    Thank you very much for making this Tielc!
