    Not 100% true. Ikael has hardcoded some things that you can't opt out of like the +2 bonus when rerolling due to Elan for example. FG will automatically apply that +2 modifier and there is no way to switch it off. It doesn't bother me since it's one less mod I have to remember to apply manually, something I've struggled to do in the past IRL.

    I think Talyn was talking about just rolling the dice manually using the 3D models at the bottom. These are just basic dice rolls without any context, so no automation should be performed.

    This topics has been included into next ruleset development cycle. Plan is to allow GM to disable as much roll, card and targeting related automation as possible. However these options does not allow you to pick your favorite automation and disable everything else; this will be more of all-or-nothing options with few exceptions.
