Greetings I am adding a bunch of custom armors for my Dark Sun game and they have different max dex allowed. There doesn't seem to be a way to do this in 5e like there was in 3.5. Any suggestions?

Basically you can treat this like a pre-requisite. Find something that requires a minimum dexterity (or other score) and use that code, changing the math appropriately.

Found an issue with or have a suggestion for the 5e Community Pack? Please post it here at our GitHub.

Still haven't found an example to use for this. If anyone knows a possible example to check out I would appreciate it.

Looked at the Defensive Duelist feat. In your Expr-reqs, add the reason as something like "Requires Dexterity 15 or lower." For the Pre-requisite expression, do:

Code:
#attrvalue[aDEX] <= 15

I was talking about allow +2 or +3 from your dex to be allowed to be added to your ac. Medium armors in 5e seem to default to +2 but for special materials I wanted to allow say +3.

Ah.

Well, this is going to be both complicated and imperfect. Imperfect because I've never found a way to change the "Max. Dex.: +2" text to say anything else. Complicated because it's got a lot going on.

The key here is going to be hero.childfound[ArmorClass].field[tACDexMod].value. Set at a timing of Post-Attributes 3000, this is where Hero Lab stores the hero's AC that it's getting from its DEX. Normally, that's going to max out at 2 with any medium armor. But you should be able to grab the DEX mod, check if it's 3 (or whatever your custom armor allows), and change it to match what you want manually. Look up Just make sure you make the timing very late in the Post-Attributes phase or later.

Try something like:

hero.childfound[ArmorClass].field[tACDexMod].value = minimum(3,hero.childfound[aDEX].field[aModBonus].value)

You might have to play with the timings, pushing it deep (10,000+) into the Final Phase, since there's plenty that could add or subtract from your DEX bonus.

Comment I received that works to change the value but not the Max Dex text.

AFTER PostAttr 2000 that sets
"herofield[tMaxDex].value = 3".

Oh wow. I just played around with that and it seems to work perfectly.

Hoping to figuring out how this is controlled to make it say what the eval script does. Though for right now I just have it as part of the items description.
