At this point its going to be what? January/February before Alien Archive 2 is added? Longer depending on how much PF2 stuff is dropped between now and then? I honestly was going to buy all of my players HLO for Christmas, but what's the point? I had a friend who was waiting for Tieflings to get added before she started to play, which they added in AA2 but we won't be able to use HLO to create her character that's for dang sure.

Paizo is finishing up part 4 of the playtest with 3 more parts to go. The rule updates are on version 1.3, which looks like they make rule changes at the end of each part of the playtest. Each part is two weeks long with the last part ending on 11/18. It's not looking like we will see AA2 before February if we're lucky, possibly March. My characters haven't bought any items since the end of July because I'm waiting on Armory. If they would add the ability to add our own items that would help. I wonder if we all went to the PF2 forum and requested that feature if they would add it?

I still somewhat question the HLC usage. I know its debated over and over here, but maybe its worth looking into for users with the "Authoring Kit" license. Then we could simply create our own content. We just need the framework created.

Anyone know if the Pathfinder framework can be grabbed and used to set the frame for Starfinder on Classic?

The only "hobby" GW is interested in is lining their pockets with your money.

No... anything besides 4e and Savage World has the core skeleton files fully locked/encrypted.

You would need to start from scratch in making Starfinder for HLC. While this can be done I would expect about 2 months straight (40 hr work weeks) to build a functional frame work. As you would have only savage world (which is not even close) as as starting point.

Armory should be out Friday and you will absolutely have AA2 before next year. We are hoping to bring on a new staff member later this month to further aid in getting us all caught up.

PF2 will have releases this week (tomorrow) and we have release dates scheduled for the next two weeks as well. Unfortunately, we get the documents for the updates at the same time everyone else does so it's just not possible to have it out on release day.

We have the ability to add custom items to your characters. It doesn't affect the stats of the character, but it does at least put it in inventory.

Thanks for the update. My next SF game is Friday night, so here's hoping I will be able to use it!

I agree that custom is there, but its limited to inventory items, no updated stats etc, and cants be used to manage custom things like new races, abilities etc...

I think we are referring to that functionality when we are saying custom content support.

That said, Thanks for the update BJ!

I was referring to the ability to add custom items to my inventory, like the editor included with HLC. Specifically I wanted the ability to add items that had been release by Paizo which LW had not created data files for. For example the Adaptive Defense Module on pg 7 in Alien Archive 2. If this is already possible how is it done?

Unfortunately, we don't currently have the ability to create custom content. It is something we plan to have in the future, but it isn't likely to be this year.

What kind of customization are you talking about here? Give me an example because I'm confused.
