Title: Genesis Character Generator - Release Thread
Post by: taranion on <09-13-20/0830:09>
Hi chummers,

I will use this thread to publish release notes of new plugin releases for Shadowrun 6 in Genesis (instead of opening new topics, like I did in the past)

Let me start with version 1.3.1
https://www.rpgframework.de/index.php/en/2020/09/13/shadowrun-1-3-1-2/
Though it is mainly bugfixes, a few things stand out:New Feature Task Improvement Bug Lately we found a larger problem in our gear management, that is relevant if you want to put accessories in to gear pieces that have been automatically added (like a weapin mount that is a built-in accessory of a drone or a accessories for foci) - that simply doesn't work right now.

It's probably not a priority, but is there any way to determine that the installation is not (automatically) to C:\ ? Because I have drive space issues . . . .

You are referring to the directory where the application stores its auto-updated files? (In your user directory in a "genesis" subdirectory)?
Or about the directory where the MSI unpacks itself? (That should be selectable in the installer)

I'm not sure, but there wasn't an option to install to a drive other than C:\ . . .

I'm having a little trouble with links right now. The link at the top of this post gets a 404. After a bit of poking about though I found the download link though and holy crap this thing is great! You did a great job putting this together and your wife did an amazing job with the pdf exports!

One thing I'm dealing with though is the lack of item descriptions, though I see that it has the ability to load files for that. Is that something I have to whip up myself for copyright concerns?

Oh also I can't find a bug report link that leads me to the right page there, I got 404 from the project management hosting site . . .

I have a little question. In CBR, the price of the control rig is set as the square of Rating x 30,000. In Genesis, it is only Rating x 30,000. What's right?
Title: Re: Genesis Character Generator - Release Thread
Post by: Stainless Steel Devil Rat on <01-07-21/1209:05>
well, the CRB price is in black and white.

I know the Genesis guy peeks in to the forum here now and again, but not sure how often.  I'll see if I can get his attention.
Title: Re: Genesis Character Generator - Release Thread
Post by: Robert on <01-07-21/1529:05>
This is because Genesis currently reflects the German rules (as we are German native speakers). And in German rules, control rig is only rating x 30k, not rating^2 x 30k.
We had assumed the German rules are 100% US rules, just translated and we learn now and then that this is not the case.

We have "let the customer choose if he wants to use US or DE rules" on our task list.

Mission accomplished, SSDR :)

This is indeed one of a (fortunately) very few items where the german and the international gear information do not match.
As Robert already noted, the german publisher made an intentional change here and since most of our users are (at the moment at least) german players and we are working closely with the german publisher, Genesis reflects the german price list here at the moment.

But there is a workaround: After adding the Control Rig for the (wrong, with regard to the CRB) price, open it in the edit dialog and increase the amount to match the rating. This way you pay the correct price.
I know this is ugly and having language specific versions of the same piece of gear is on our ToDo-List, but that is all I can offer at the moment.

You do amazing work! I just wish your l labor of love didn't have to factor in such edition discrepancies.

This is pretty amazing.

Is there a way to set which armor you are actively wearing? So far it just uses the highest rating armor to figure Defense.

Thank you :)

Unfortunately no. But you are not the first to ask and I implemented it for my Foundry VTT game system, so I might add it in the near future in a compatible way.
Title: Release 2.0.0 - Double Clutch
Post by: taranion on <11-02-21/0439:02>
After 5 months work, we are happy to announce a major update to the Shadowrun 6 plugin in Genesis.
For release notes please consult our Wiki (https://rpgframework.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/SR6HELP/pages/1997045761/Shadowrun+6+-+2.0.x) .
In brief:Though we tested the release some time, I expected it to have some bugs - "Double Clutch"s new rules where not easy to implement and I've got the feeling that there are still a lot of uncovered problems regarding vehicles. Still, I hope you like the new options.

You can find us on Discord (https://discord.gg/AUCQ3HM), if you want to discuss our projects

I forgot to add: A new version (https://www.rpgframework.de/index.php/en/genesis-3/) of the starter application Genesis is also being rolled out. Since the starter application is not self-updating, you need to reinstall it manually.

In happy news: I forgot to not use chrome when downloading.  And it worked anyway!

I noticed a few days ago, that the MSI file was the only one using HTTP instead of HTTPS for download and fixed it.
Maybe that added to the problem - or better: helped resolve it now.

Shadowrun 6 - Version 2.0.1

Bug
Improvement
Title: Version 2.1.0
Post by: taranion on <12-30-21/0951:19>
As this year comes to an end, we are releasing our last update for this year (I hope so - otherwise I will have messed this up terribly).

The new version changes the way exotic weapon skills are dealt with (we now assume grouped skills like "Whips" instead of per weapon specializations like "Monofilament Whip"). We still don't support having custom weapon skills, but we introduced an "Other" specialization to help you at least buying it.

We also introduced a config option to enable or disable to rules from the errata of the third printing, With the previous version 2.0 we forced those changes on players, which lead to a lot of confusion regarding not being able to buy spells/complex forms with customization Karma. Now you can choose your way in the creation wizard.
(https://api.media.atlassian.com/file/ff5f7718-9aec-46ea-919f-9b0c003ef660/binary?client=5774ba0d-c6e7-49cf-97a7-68c5a5d699b9&collection=contentId-2005630995&dl=true&max-age=2592000&token=eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJpc3MiOiI1Nzc0YmEwZC1jNmU3LTQ5Y2YtOTdhNy02OGM1YTVkNjk5YjkiLCJhY2Nlc3MiOnsidXJuOmZpbGVzdG9yZTpjb2xsZWN0aW9uOmNvbnRlbnRJZC0yMDA1NjMwOTk1IjpbInJlYWQiXX0sImV4cCI6MTY0MDg3NjgzOCwibmJmIjoxNjQwODczODk4fQ.vB7jJ6uv7ULZSqiO_ARvm-tckcEoEHEdu05V4mhIoDk)

On the extended gear pages on the PDF the weapon element got a total redesign. It is more compact and supports having custom images for each weapon (which you need to upload yourself in Genesis). It also breaks the contributing modifications to the attack rating into a neat list, so you can control the values. As a play aid we show you ca list of modified AR ratings and dice pool per firemode.
