[5e Shaped] Version 8+

sirren said: Thanks a lot, Kryx. These seem to work, except for characters that have both a first name and a last name. What's the correct syntax there? I tried putting "_" in place of the space, enclosing the name in quotes and square brackets, but I guess it is something else. Also I know this is more of a companion script question, but how do I create macros for all the class features that a character has? I found the commands for actions/traits/reactions/attacks, but not for class features. !shaped-abilities --classFeatures

Hi - First of all this is a great sheet so thanks to Kryx and the community for this. I'm finding that when I drop spellcasting NPCs from the compendium SRD (e.g. Mage), the spells are just titles with no effect and rolls. I have to manually drag the spells from compendium into the sheet for this to 'fill up'. Is this normal? I'm using 10.1.5. Also is there a place to see all the change logs other than manually going through this thread?  I'm also interested to know what is meant by 'breaking changes', and whether automatic updates to the sheet version in my campaign actually work or does it get wonky over time and I should try to do a full refresh? Thanks in advance - I tried using the search functions but they're not that helpful.

Thanks in advance - I tried using the search functions but they're not that helpful. That is normal operation. The SRD is just a listing from the PHB or MM, so the sheet can only fill out the names of the spells. And there is no way for the sheet to access the SRD to pull in the spell information automatically. So quick answer, you will always have to do it that way. 'Breaking Changes' usually refers to a change in underlying naming conventions or such that could possible break peoples macros or other automated features they have created in using the sheet within their own game.  Kryx has been very diligent that the sheet updates itself with little to no issues (and fixes the issues that do come up) and tests that as much as possible with help from the community. So a full refresh should never be needed.

I've updated the changelog with the following information: Versioning I use Semantic Versioning which has 3 numbers separated by a dot: Major.Minor.Patch I use Major versions a bit liberally - I consider the following to be major changes: Any changes to existing roll template fields Any change to a repeating section which makes existing macro references break New features are a minor version. Bugs fall into the patch category. The sheet will always upgrade itself unless I specify otherwise, though some things like roll template fields changing will require users who have added custom macros to fix.

Depending on whether you have the $$$ to drop, a pro subscription and the Shaped Companion script would also fix this problem for you. The script supports auto-expanding SRD spells to work around the limitations of the current Compendium format. If you run a regular game on Roll20, I'd say that the money is well worth the time you will save. I'd certainly recommend trying it for a month so you can make an informed decision.

HLazar said: Doug E. said: This is awesome. I wonder what would happen if Lander Calben's name changed? It seems to me it would break all of this. I wonder if instead of the name, the character_id could be used? I can test later but someone might know the answer off the top. Sure, you can use the character name as a variable. I checked and this seems to work. [goading attack](~@{character_name}|repeating_classfeature_-KeZNJKiHOXGfS48bZ2Y_action)  but there comes a point to which you are self-referencing and bogged down in code. I don't plan to change my character's name anytime soon. It would be more like I was creating a new character and would copy and paste this code for other reasons and then I could just find/replace in notepad or whatever. my two cents Awesome. Thanks for testing that.
Hey, I was just wondering in the latest public sheet, when I needed to make a mystic I used the spells tab and selected points instead of slots and there was a limit option. is that for the mystic class in itself or part of a different rule in the alternate spell casting?

Spell limit could easily be used for a mystic, sure. DMG 289 has the spell points by level which uses "Max Spell Level" which would be the same as a point value. Always using point values is more clear so I've presented it as a limit with the equivalent spell points.

After getting MM I'm able to drag and drop monster tokens from compendium to tabletop, which is great. What's still missing is the ability to easily access the monster's actions. I have to find the journal entry for that monster, open the sheet, then click on the attack action. If I have multiple monsters on tabletop, I have to keep multiple sheets ready during combat. What are my options to further streamline this? Can the !shaped-abilities command from the companion script help with this? What would the workflow look like? Is there a way to easily click through to the sheet from the token? Some other way I haven't thought about? Thanks in advance.

Thanks in advance.  Yes, it can, and I'm in the process of trying to improve the workflow as we speak. Currently you have to select the token and run !shaped-apply-defaults and it will configure it and the character it represents according to your preferred defaults, including adding token actions. You configure the defaults in !shaped-config. You will need a Pro subscription for this as it's a feature of the Companion API script. I'm hoping to be able to make this all happen automatically (if you so choose) when you drag a token from the MM, but there are some challenges involved... Shift double click the token

The sheet has predefined abilities to help you run stuff without having to open the sheet. Look into macros such as %{selected|shaped_statblock} or %{selected|shaped_actions}. (There's more on the settings page of the sheet).
Currently the Ability Checks and Saving Throws buttons in "chatWindow" mode whisper to the GM. This works well for monster sheets, but when PC's start using these (for example through Companion-set token actions) it gets spammy for the GM. Is it possible to make those actually whisper to either: - Whoever clicks the button. - First non-GM of PC sheet - Configurable player Or some other smart option...

This should also fix: <a href="https://bitbucket.org/mlenser/5eshaped/issues/404/" rel="nofollow">https://bitbucket.org/mlenser/5eshaped/issues/404/</a>... However right now it's not working for me yet. I updated to 11.0.4 and ran "!shaped-update-character". Should that be enough? Or do I need to re-add the entire addon to the campaign? Edit : For posterity, I had to re-import the entire YP addon, and now it's OK.
Apologies if this is discussed elsewhere but: I'm trying to create a custom 5E class. &nbsp;It would be awesome if I could throw a .js file somewhere or tweak a file to include my custom class, rather than asking my players to hand-edit everything. &nbsp;Am I better off going that route? &nbsp;I thought maybe I could hand-jam some stuff into the 5eShaped.html that I downloaded, but the class content appears to be in a lot of places, even if I got it working, upgrading all of that would be a pain/error prone. Thoughts?

11.1.0 Features PCs hit points will be calculated automatically if "Automatic hit points" is turned on on the settings page. Closes #402: PCs should have the option of displaying default hit points OGL conversion now happens as one server call. The process should be quicker and notification window will now go away at the end. OGL conversion will now remove all repeating sections from the OGL sheet to reduce the number of fields on the sheet. Less fields = less lag. Bug Fixes #414: OGL Conversion - Statblock Macro #411: OGL Conversion - Spells are not sorted by level

Should cantrips dragged from SRD work on NPC characters on the latest 11.1.0 version? It seems since they do not have the [level] attribute they don't work, even adding that manually it seems most of the damage sections working b default.

11.2.0 Features Short and Long Rest are now on the sheet for all users. They no longer require a Pro subscription. Lucian's next version of the script will support the chat messages that accompany this feature. If hit points are adjusted to be above 0 then death saving throws will reset in accordance with the rules: "The number of both is reset to zero when you regain any hit points or become stable" Divine Smite's formula changed to allow automatic spell reduction - will require the script to set this all up. You can untoggle and retoggle divine smite to get the new formula. Bug Fixes Spell saving throw DC and spell attack will no longer use an ability modifier of -5 if there is no spell_ability selected.
