    Thanks for your work Ikael! CT enhancements are nice.

    Will 5.3 have support for lighting and vision? For example:

    Racial abilities like low light vision will giving the character darkvision automatically without the need to use VISION: darkvision in CT or adding token vision

    The ability to put vision and light effects on characters like we can put other effects on them (i.e. a glow worm that has the "glow" ability with LIGHT: 3 FF00C709 so when I drop it on the map it automatically has that light effect)

    The ability to put light and vision effects on items (i.e. ring of darkvision, glowing sword) that kick in when equipped

    Thanks!

    As always, thank you for all the hard work Ikael. Looking forward to Full Frontal Lighting (whatever that means, but there you go).

    I'm using FGU Ultimate and I can't follow the instruction the OP describes. I have a [Setting] button on the main FGU launcher, but once the dialog (it's actually a tabbed form) displays, I have to click an {Advanced} tab to see anything related to different types of installs. I also don't have a "Mode" setting, but do have a "Build Channel" drop-down box, of which "Test" is one of the menu options. Further to that I do not have an [Update] button on that tab, but do have [Uninstall], [Cancel] and [Save] buttons. On another tab named {Troubleshoot} I have 5 buttons, one that's labeled [Force App Update]. Is that perhaps the "Update" button the OP is referring to and do I need to click it?

    Sorry if this seems straight forward to others that are more familiar with this process, but the OP's description just doesn't read like what I observe with my FGU application. I need some clarification on this.

    So playing around with the test version.

    1. The new grouping fixes the application of effects from the quickbar to an NPC in the group - thank goodness

    2. There is a weird display for some NPCs when they are grouped. See the attached picture at what I circled in red. That is a standard orc. If I do a roll (even from those stats) it rolls the right dice, just the display is wrong. This happens if I add a creature to the CT, then group them. If I drag the link directly from the NPC menu to the Action Card, it groups it and displays the correct stats.

    @Ikael

    I'm very much looking forward to this update!

    btw, shouldn't <distance><diagmult> in gameelements.xml be set to 1 rather than 1.5, since swade measures diagonal distances as 1"? Sorry to be nit picky, but that throws off all the players (and me). They measure distance with the pointers a lot.

    Thanks for your awesome work!
