Instead of Listening in the Bothan should of tried to ensure it was the next book released except I bet it wont be released till after the Warrior book is shipped out to stores after watching the pattern.

It's kind of hard for a bothan to go undercover in a company that only hires humans, ffg is  just as speciesist as the empire.

And we know for SURe that is not my fault, nor Ghosts fault, Ghost is a A-Wing, Imagine her getting hired by FFG, when they're as speciesist as the Empire that's not gonna happen

would love to put in a feature request for @OggDude -

would it be possible to add a "Skill Check" to the encounter section alongside the Adversary button? I often have a bunch of encounters that are social or require non-combat checks and while I need the Adversary stats, being able to add in various skill checks (along with symbols) would just be delightful.

If there is already a way to do this, would appreciate it if someone would push me in the right direction :)

I'm thinking about typing out all the talents... but I don't want my work to be wasted when a new version comes out. Is there a way to port information that I type into newer versions?

Updates should not clear out your user data. The software and the content are stored in two separate places.

It won't as the changed data is stored separately in your AppData folder as its own DataSet I believe. However to be safe you can always export your UserData prior to upgrading to a new version just in case. Then if anything does change you can just re-import it into the new version.

I wonder where he found the special rules that he programed the generator give a combat chasis higher stats when upgraded to Elimination Directive so I can know how to change the WT back to 4 instead of 14 and ST back to 4 from 11. This is for crafting droids with the rules from special modifications.

I was able to plug in the tree for retired clone trooper.  I've never really messed with the data editor, but it wasn't near as hard as I thought.  What I can't figure out is how to add a new book so that I can label it Dawn of Rebellion or how to add a picture for an item.

For source, click the "add" button, and just type in the book's name...it will then be available in the pulldown list.

For pictures, use a .png file, and put it in the appropriate folder under your DataCustom folder. You can see the naming conventions for the different content type pictures in those folders. For example, vehicle pictures are KEYNAME.png while weapons are WeaponKEYNAME.png, and so on.

I wonder if it the boosted stats from the crafting side of the generator is a house rule he made so adding a elimination directive to a non specialist chasis wouldn't be instantly wiped out in combat. I tried to search the forums to see if there was errata that crafted droids going from rival to nemesis get higher thresholds.

How would one go about altering the character sheets?  The motivations portion doesn't go across the page and the notes blocks spread all over turn it into a 5 to 6 page character sheet.

You don't
Those notes blocks are placed so that sections stay on one page. so they fill in the space required to push a section to the next page if the section wont fit in the space left.

Me too @Tassedar, he is known to be extremely busy with his life though. Paging grand master @OggDude

I would also like to recommend a feature: We're getting more and more ships that have personal scale weapons on them. I'd like to recommend a simple symbol or logo that can be used to denote "This weapon uses personal scale and not planetary scale." on a vehicle stat block.

The only books since Disciples of Harmony have been Ghosts of Dathomir and Dawn of Rebellion, yes?

I don't believe either of those added any new mechanics? So the rush to get a patch out is probably minimal? It isn't that hard to add the new material in ourselves. :D

Just wondering is ogg still working on this project? I haven't seen him or updates for a while which terrifies me.

He's just busy.

I just checked and he visited the forums earlier today.

Once real Life permits we'll see an update from him. (hopefully with the Battle Scars rules included ... hint, hint).

Doesn't Ghost of Dathomir have a Force power?

He will just make it like the Wards Foresight power from gate keepers adventure book then the player who takes the power only has access to the nodes the gm says is unlocked as the gates open. Execpt the player will see the entire power tree.

Not a major issue but encumberance values don't seem to add for certain pieces of armour when equipped, heavy clothing and padded armour all seem to be encumberance 0.

All Armor when equipped counts as three encumbrance less than its actual value
