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:
  • My wife contributed a half-page PDF export (inspired by the way NPCs are represented in the books)
  • More editable fields on the regular character sheet (again - a contribution by my wife)
  • You can use autosofts in vehicles (not restricted to drones anymore, like before)
New Feature
  • [SR6-34] - Half-Page / A5 NPC sheet
  • [SR6-434] - EditableFields: Notes for drones, activated programs
Task
  • [SR6-416] - Move accessories from INTERNAL to better slot (to make them visible)
  • [SR6-437] - Add useas VEHICLE_BODY to weapons placed directly into vehicles
Improvement
  • [SR6-424] - Add multi to accessories which user may want to have multiple
  • [SR6-435] - Allow vehicles to use autosofts
Bug
  • [SR6-130] - PDF: Astral combat elements repeats relevant effects
  • [SR6-248] - Cannot add two things (e.g. standard weapon mounts) in one slot (e.g. a vehicle)
  • [SR6-292] - Exception while generating PDF (ConditionStunElement)
  • [SR6-313] - Weapon focus does not hold accessories and modifications added
  • [SR6-321] - No karma cost for initiation during character generation
  • [SR6-369] - Show level of cyberware modifications on PDF printout
  • [SR6-403] - Multi="yes" no longer seems to work (datasofts)
  • [SR6-417] - Add camera and vision_magnification to imaging_scope
  • [SR6-419] - Add personalized_grip_melee to all weapons of Zoe Heritage line
  • [SR6-421] - Add missing slots to weapons with accessorymods in those slots
  • [SR6-423] - Show correct number of programs slots on rigger page
  • [SR6-425] - Make mods visible for "full body armor with helmet"
  • [SR6-427] - Add missing exotic ammunition from FF
  • [SR6-444] - Failed to Save Character during creation
  • [SR6-446] - Mystic adept: Prevent automatic Powerpoint on Magic increase (Catalyst rules) and inverse for Pegasus Rules
  • [SR6-447] - Machine guns as accessories not sorted correctly
  • [SR6-448] - Correct Kickboxing signature technique
  • [SR6-449] - Factory autosofts should block slots
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.

I <3 your work!
RPG mechanics exist to give structure and consistency to the game world, true, but at the end of the day, you’re fighting dragons with algebra and random number generators.

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:\ . . .
