Hosting Servers Have Changed!
Please note we have moved the d20 community package location to a new set of servers. This should better provide for future growth and puts all the packages for d20 and Pathfinder into the same location. So you will need to change the URL you have to
Code:
http://www.shadowsoftware.net/herolab/d20/updates.xml
If you need help doing this please see THIS pdf document.

Package overview

Lawful_g has been hard at work creating a 3.5 package that includes dozens of 3.5 and Dragonlance books. Chiefweasel and I have now combined all these different books into one large import file that has each book correctly source marked. This means after installing this package you will have a large number of books that can be check marked in the Configure Your Hero window. This data set is now finally ready for the community.

We have integrated this package in a way that will make the process work almost exactly the same as how you currently get official updates from Hero Lab. This feature is called Secondary Update URL... and is VERY easy to setup. After that you can simply download and import future enhancements to the package automatically.

Instructions on using the Secondary Update URL feature

Please see THIS pdf document. It will go over the couple steps needed to setup the Powered by Hero Lab feature.

Manually Downloading the data set
If you would rather do everything manually you can do that also and it is pretty easy to do. Simply click HERE and download the version of file you wish. Once you download the file you can double click on it to have Hero Lab start the import process.

For those that HAVE Lawful_g .user files
If you already have .user files that you either downloaded from Chiefweasel's site or had the files sent to you directly from Lawful_g then you will need to remove those .user files. If you do not, you will get duplicate Thing errors. Now this is only a one time requirement as future updates will be able to simply overwrite existing files. You do NOT have to remove any of your own .user files.

Your .user files created using the editor
If you have your own .user files you do NOT have to remove these before importing the data set. If you did any changes directly to Lawful_g's files you will need to carefully copy those changes out and put them into your own uniquely named .user files. Future updates will simply overwrite existing files so if you wish to make changes to the Lawful_g data set you will need to do a Replace Thing. Or if you fix something then you will need to submit that fix/change/enhancement to me at shadowchemosh(at)yahoo(dot)com and we will do our best to incorporate that into a future data set release.

Your house rules and the Lawful_g data set
You should treat the Lawful_g data set files in the same way you would official Hero Lab files. This means you should NOT make changes directly to the .user files as those changes will be lost when you update to the next release. Instead you should create a new uniquely named .user file that does a Replaces Thing ID if you need to put in your own house rules over the Lawful_g 3.5 D&D data set.

Sending us your enhancements and additions
If you have new classes, feats, or spells from 3.5 D&D done and would like to have it added to a release please email me at ShadowChemosh(at)yahoo(dot)com.

Release 1.0a - 10/28/2010

Enhancements & Changes
  • All books now source marked so they show in Configure Your Hero window.
  • Healer class from the Miniatures Handbook added.
  • Added the wavecrest gnome from Stormwrack to the Stormwrack races .user file.
  • Added the Warlock Scepter to the MIC magic items .user file.
  • Complete Psionics powers added by Sendric.
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed the Warlock Eldritch Blast script to use the Value from itself when setting the d6 values instead of the local Variable Bonus. This allows other scripts to adjust the value and have the new adjusted value display on the character sheet.
Data File Authoring
  • All file extensions where changed from .dat to .user.
  • Import data set file created for use with Secondary Update URL.
  • Removed all dates that where part of the file name and moved into the File Version section of the XML.
  • Added new Conjuration(Healing) CL Thing to handle any magic item and feats that give a caster level bonus to that specific school of magic. Located in Custom - SpecificSchoolCL.user file.
  • Healer cure spells only calculate themselves with a generic script that has its values changes by setting Tags on the spell.
  • Added scripts to several Magic Items and Feats to adjust the Value of the new Conjuration(Healing) CL Thing so that the correct CL is used for calculating the the Cure Spells for the healer.

I already did the update, and received no errors on load up. I may have just gotten lucky as I did not remove any files.

I must say I love this option, as it definitely keeps us from bugging you for help, and makes it easy for us to get the content.

Kudos to you!

Once this process is on its way we'll lok at doing the same for Pathfinder, and in fact for any game system that HL uses. But it will take some time.

Should we get a few folks to test the files first? then create the single file for upload to the website

I'll test.
Heck I'm not doing anything else at the moment, other than experimenting with the DMG poison gear and adding to the Monster Types file!
