New version amid hacking drama!

Hi folks

A new version released today amidst my hacking drama - it keeps my mind off the huge amount of money that is not yet back in my bank account!
I have revamped Equipment Engineer and it is now running at about 60% functionality for mundane items - magic items will be added once I have everything nailed down.

Item creation, loading and saving are all enabled, and the viewport shows you your data. You can also import from and export to the NPC weapon list.Still to come: parsing to FG and importing.

Other ideas:
See all equipment in the current project as a 'Player's Handbook' style list of tables.Save equipment lists to allow sharing between users.Load equipment lists.Build kits.Build packs.

What do you think? Any other suggestions? Please limit suggestions to mundane items for now - magic stuff comes later! Enjoy, and let me know what you think.

Itching to start something new!

Table Engineer is getting close to being finished. I have to do something with the autoranging (as I have avoided it so far, LOL!) but I think that is its last feature before Par5e support.

I've got itchy fingers to start on Parcel Engineer. The only problem is that it relies on Equipment Engineer being finished. Picture me looking like a surly teenager being forced to tidy his bedroom. *sadface*

Hey Ho. Equipment Engineer looks like being a big addition now that magical items are being rolled into it and one that a lot of people would like to see. Time to bite the bullet and get to work, I think. :)

Off to scratch my itchy fingers....

Welcome our newest arrival: Table Engineer!

I've been busy this summer.

The small updates from the last post led to a full-on obsession again and I have been dreaming about code. It is probably unhealthy but it gets shit done!

So what shit got done? Well, I built a whole new element of Engineer Suite - Table Engineer! I wasn't keen as it meant I had to learn to work with tables in RTF, but it was such a necessary part of the creation of FG modules I felt I had to grasp the nettle. I'm pleased with how it turned out, however.

I was going to rant about how horrible RTF is as a format to work with, but long time readers will know this already. I'll just leave this here as a reminder :)

Let me know what you think of Table Engineer, and if you want any features added. It isn't complete yet, but it is most of the way there!.
