Sadly, this is the easiest part of the coding... It's repetitive yes but this is the easy part. If you did the game system, the sheet output is usually the easiest part. For the White Wolf systems I am doing, I was able to minimize the number of "oPick" templates I needed by having one for traits and dots. I only had to make different pick outputs for a handful of things. I found the sheet to be the simplest part of the code output. I don't save it for last though. I code it in parts as I go. I started with attributes and abilities, then as I added new components to the structure file I would do the sheet and statblock output at the same time that way everything was built as I went along.


Please do not PM me to inquire about datafiles I coded "for personal use" such as Exalted, World of Darkness, AD&D, or Warhammer 40K Roleplaying. I appreciate your interest, but I do not own the Intellectual Property rights to these game systems. Nor do I have permission from any of the Publishers to distribute the data files. As such, I cannot distribute the work I have done with community on these files. They are "for personal use" only. Thank you.
