You *should* be able to mostly. The scope of this is really just the GURPS Lite document, so there are bound to be structures in the real GURPS books that this won't handle so well, but I did factor in alternate defaults (i.e., to other skills, not just to attributes). Again, I'll be looking more closely at this shortly.

Good idea. Done. Thanks for the feedback.

I'll continue to play with it. While I'm running a GURPS game, it's not a lite game, though I'll likely make my NPCs with the Lite rules (and your HL kit) just so that I can work through and help find problems, etc. I'll also use the editor to add some weapons and stuff (you can never have enough weapons in the Zombie Apocalypse!)

Thanks for this, Kairos!

Thanks for using it! And by all means, try as hard as you can to break it.

I play in GunbunnyFuFu's game and am up for coding. I use XML a little at work, so I understand how it works (I'm a programmer/analyst). I have hacked a little bit with the data files and have been successful making a few additions (not very hard).

I am a little confused about the thing_skills.dat file. Under Gun Skills, you have L.A.W. Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun & S.M.G. Down around line 3430, you have LAW and SMG (no periods). Is this a bug, or do I not understand this well enough yet (quite likely).

Hi, Bubba:

Sorry. New job is keeping me hopping.

I think what you're referring to is this:

Code:
<arrayval field="usrArray" index="4" value="S.M.G."/>
and further down, this:

Code:
		  
elseif (compare(field[usrSelect].text, field[usrArray].arraytext[4]) = 0) then
     perform assign[Spec.SMG]
To put it simply, the first item is structure: it defines an array field and a set of values that provide content for a menu in a skills tab template.

The second item is script. Hero Lab uses a series of evaluation cycles to process the data files, and that second item is a part of a eval script which gets interpreted at a given phase of that cycle. This particular bit of code is simply applying a tag to the thing/pick based on the value the user selects in that array menu (the one defined in the first item).

Tag definitions can't have periods, hence the SMG.

Thanks for confirming that this is NOT a typo/bug. I have been playing with this for less than a week so be kind.

I am working on adding "Recoil" and then "Bulk" to weapons. Slow but steady.

Hi all. Any idea when Spells are going to be added?

I am in a GURPish mood.

Hey, dartnet:

I took a new job about a month ago, and I've been on the road for a good bit of it. I haven't had much chance to direct my attention back to this ruleset yet. The big change that needs to be done to it so far is to alter the way skill defaults are handled.

It's not forgotten!

Woot! Thanks Kairos for doing this. I'll definitely test it out. I just want to make sure you all know that this effort is very much appreciated!
