    [extension] Spell Tokens Extension

    This extension is now on www.dmsguild.com 'Fantasy Grounds Spell Tokens'
    My other extensions can be found on www.dmsguild.com 'Bratch Nine'
    RULESET : 5E

    This extension is designed to allow tokens to be applied and dragged onto the map a character is on.

    I'll add more information at a later date, as people are asking for a thread to post issues away from the dms guild...


    Note. Extra ruleset support has been removed due to hosting requirements on DMS Guild. I'm not sure when/how this we get resolved but I will look into options.


    NOTE. for support on rulesets 3.5E, PFRPG, PFRPG2, SFRPG

    For now you need to do some work by hand, on windows you can rename the '2797083-5E_B9_SpellTokens.ext' file to '.zip' ( you might need to turn on extension in your windows folder properties to see these.. )
    Once the extension has a zip extension, you can 'double click' and open the extension into the window 'virtual folder' view of zip files, as if you had extracted it into directory.
    You can then drag the below 'extension.xml' file into the 'virtual folder' for the zip, ( or even direct onto the '2797083-5E_B9_SpellTokens.zip' file ) and windows will ask you if you want to replace the file. ( Select the yes option. )
    Once this is done you can rename back to '.ext' and all should be good to go on the other rulesets.


    NOTE. I've also included the Starfinder module ( spells with token names ) and ShipGridToken.xml that was part of the DMsGuild files. The 'spells' in the module should allow you to drag at 'large' token which has the 'forward' and arc marks. ( see sf_grid.jpg )

    I just got this from the Guild, which one is the most up to date extension?
    5E_B9_SpellTokens.ext
    or
    5E_B9_SpellTokens_v1.8.ext
    ?

    Ahoi, I am using FGU.

    I'm not sure how to set up this 'locked' mode you talk about, is this a FGU or a FGC ?


    Testing token size seems to be set for me when I drag from a character spell onto the map, again this is FGU. ( Are you using FGC ? )
    I originally did not use the new v2 Assets Spell Token size feature. The new feature handles this correctly now and is greatly appreciated. Thanks for that.

    To delete a toke from a spell, at the moment, you would have to go into the 'spell token' in the assets section and create a new line with the name of the spell, and leave its token in the 'empty' state.. then re-parse the spell on the character sheet. ( I've added a bug to my list to clear the slot if the associated line in the spell token is removed when re-parsed on the character sheet. )
    I originally used v1.8 where all spell actions had a spell token slot, the new system and coming bug fix sounds perfect. Still have to figure out how to calculate the size without having to do trial & error.

    - Where do I find that "Fantasy Grounds Spell Tokens" pack you mention in your product description? A search only points to your extension page here, so I suspect that it is listed under a different name?!

    - Spell tokens are placed behind PC tokens, but they are placed in front of all others tokens (especially NPCs) and thus cover them. This is the main problem that keeps me from using the extension.

    I've added a note to check client re-parse for issues.

    I'll have a look to see if I can place them under the NPC.

    Default token settings are for https://www.dmsguild.com/product/195...pell-Tokens-21 if you want to used these in more then the 5E ruleset you need to edit the 'definition.xml' to add the extra rulesets ( see attached file. )

    5E_B9_SpellTokens.ext is the most upto date.


    (5E_B9_SpellTokens_v1.8.ext is the older basic 5E only ruleset version for people who dont want to upgrade while the new version gets 'bug fixed' and 'suggestions' added.. )

    That would be great, thanks!

    These look gorgeous, thanks for the updated definition file. Unfortunately they lack grids for Pathfinder, but I may still get them.

    Why would tokens need grids ? ( Sorry not a pathfinder player.. )

    Like in olden DnD area effects in Pathfinder are not circle based, but grid-based. And the area is smaller in PF compared to DnD.

    Main problem remains that fact that FGU places non CT tokens over CT NPC tokens and thus covers/buries them underneath. It's not the fault of the extension and Diablob's similar spell token extension suffers from the same issue.

    Tokens are worse, been looking at it... FGC actually places CT NPC over CT Player tokens, and FGU placed CT Player tokens over CT NPC... And I can not find the 'how' they do this to even think about a fix. ( I suspect it goes outside the lua scripts into code we dont have control over.. )

    Some of the spell tokens in the pack are square, but the tokens are mainly D&D and not specific for Pathfinder.. Size and Alpha mask configures these things.. so maybe we need to fix a set of token for Pathfinder that work.. ( I'm not an artist so it not anything I can do.. )

    Tokens should be in order added to map (on initial add); and last one moved is on top. It should have nothing to do with whether they are in the CT or not.
