Number of References

I got a warning one starting this data file for the first time that some elements contained over 200 references witht he request to rework them.

Just thought I'd mention it. It seems to work ok after the warning.

Yeah, I'm trying to cut down some of them...but I doubt I can that warning to go away.
Take for instance, Enoch...he has links for air, earth, fire and water spells as well as primagic and the combination spells, and artefacts. When I first made the files, all the characters had links to pretty much every artefact in the game...now, I've started pulling out reserved artefacts and reserved miracles and soon reserved spells so this should help out. Those reserved items are being linked directly to the character instead of being only "viewable" to the character and "linked" to everyone.
Hope that made some sense.
It works fine, just takes a bit to load.

If it could help you, I develop the linkage for magical items for french Confrontation files this way :
-1 Linkset whith all common items
-1 Linkset per race with all items only the characters of that race can access and items reserved for 1 character of that race.

Then, you wont have to remove your linkset, and create hundreds of new links, just cut the linkset by race. Then, you will have only ~50 links by characters instead of more than 200. I had the same problem when I translate my files from AB2 to AB3.

For spells/familiars options, I recomand you to add a space as text cost to avoid the 0 cost displayed for theses options. And you may use the same behavior for miracle than for the spells. It will decrease the number of link too, and will avoid you to create a new link each time for new miracles.

Hey there,
Yeah, that's exactly what I'm doing. Just wish I had thought of that at the start. There are fewer Miracles so they were much easier to cut into smaller links. The Spells are going to be more of a chore. Never thought of using a space in the cost field though. Thanks for the tip!!
