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.

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 .
In brief:
  • Vehicles/Drones/Qualities from Double Clutch
  • Modification rules from Double Clutch
  • Dedicated generator for custom vehicles
  • Support defining signature maneuvers
  • You can now provide custom descriptions  directly from within the application. (Check also our Wiki for other methods)
  • Allow adding custom images to vehicles and drones
  • Began adapting to 3rd printing errata (we still wait for an official errata document before we concentrate on this)
  • Support having language dependant versions of gear to better deal with translation differences
  • PDF: redesigned the way vehicles are exported on the extended gear pages
  • PDF: redesigned the Rigger page
  • PDF: added an option to have an overview of ALL edge boosts and actions, along with a extreme short paraphrased description
  • PDF: the generated PDF now includes bookmarks
  • Foundry VTT JSON export now exports vehicles and drones
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, if you want to discuss our projects

I forgot to add: A new version 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!
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.

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.

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.


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.



Bug
SR6-771 Creation: First level or a metamagic/echo should not be free
SR6-769 Experience Journal uses current date instead of date entered
SR6-768 Defensive pool modifier (from Combat Sense) should not be capped at +4

SR6-757 Add magic formulas
SR6-755 Add content from DE Adventskalender
SR6-752 List both (US and DE) version of Manriki chain
SR6-373 Reduce number of specialisations for exotic weapons skill

I wish you all a happy new year and hope to have fun with you all in 2022.
