    Reason being is I think it'd be neat if players could change how they wield a weapon and thus change the damage and damage type. Like the many ways proper long swords are used to make both piercing (thrusts) and slashing attacks or can be held inverted to strike with the pommel/crossguard (Mordhau technique). I know one could just edit the weapon's damage type and dice manually but it's a bit clunky and not conducive to mid-combat tactic changes.

    I think it would be technically possible to make an extension that adds a button to toggle weapon damage type the same way this extension changes damage dice on the fly. However I don't think that would be within the scope of this extension, and is currently beyond the scope of my ability. Also, the reason that in 5e weapons only have a single damage type option is in part to reduce the number of choices a player need make in a turn to facilitate faster combats, and in part to encourage the use of other weapons so that you can't defeat a creature that is immune to slashing by saying I strike with the flat of my blade. So such an extension would be against the spirit of DnD5e.
    Yes, flat strikes and thrusts are part of HEMA longsword training, but they are a very minor part, if you are fighting with a longsword, your goal is to deliver a cut.

    Exactly. It's totally doable with an extension but it belongs more to an "homebrew" use case.

    I love this extension! I was just wondering if you could add a sneak attack function as well (maybe that you can turn on in the weapon meta). It would make my rouge's life so much easier!

    You can add a power in your list of powers and add an effect that give you the +1d6 and so on damage. How do you do that right now?

    Open the sneak attack ability and drag it into the actions tab. It will create the sneak attack effect for you. Apply the effect before damage is rolled and after the hit is a success.
    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/

    This is great and doesn't add any complexity to the player! Thank you!

    Not sure if you corrected, or even are aware, but when "Advanced Effects" places an effect on an item
    this extension will not let the effect work.

    We like this extension very much, but can not give up Advanced Effects.

    ie, place "Savage Attack; DMG: 1d6 critical" on an item and the effect will not work.
    Any new remedies?

    Why not use the Crit Range / Crit Dice window for Savage Attack?

    I haven't realized an issue with Advanced Effects before
