Release 1.31 - TBD

Enhancements & Changes
  • 3.5 - Complete Arcane: Put a cap on number of invocations cast by a Warlock of 12 (level 20). (Sendric)

  • 3.5 - Magic Item Compendium: Runestaffs now display allowed spells as Spell-Like Abilities in the Spells tab. This makes it easier for players to use a spell slot and mark a charge as used. (Sendric)
  • 3.5 - Tome of Battle: QoL updates. (Illyahr)
  • Custom - Core Book Mods: Added Antimagic Field adjustment. This will not work on all magic items, but does allow for magical properties on items to be suppressed as items are updated. Core armor item properties for various resistances now add resistance to character. Works with Antimagic Field adjustment. Cloaks of Resistance updated to work with Antimagic Field adjustment. (Sendric)

Bug Fixes

  • 3.5 - Dragon Magic: Dragonfire Adept can now be selected when increasing magic levels, and doing so will increase the number of invocations correctly. (Sendric)

  • Update Dragon Natural Weapons so Crush and Tail Sweep appear in Weapons tab instead of Specials tab.
  • Sinspawn Wrathspawn and all other Sinspawn variants from Rise of the Runelord should have 2 claw attacks but it is only has one so it doesn't seem to qualify for the multiattack feat it also should have. --needs replacement to fix.

Useful Coding Examples

To pull tags from one thing and apply them to another. Example: Oracle Domain Class Special, Complete Divine

perform hero.childfound[cdOracle].pulltags[ClsScAllSp.?]
perform field[usrChosen1].chosen.pushtags[ClsScAllSp.?]
To increase the number of Secondary Spells. Example: Oracle Domain Class Special, Complete Divine

field[usrChosen1].chosen.field[cSecSplReq].value += 1
To pull an unknown number of tags, assign them to a string, then replace part of the tagid. Example: Oracle Domain Class Special, Complete Divine

var spells as string
spells = hero.childfound[cdOracle].tagids[ClsScAllSp.?,"|"]
spells = replace(spells, "ClsScAllSp", "thingid", 0)
To apply the above string to a list of available spells. Example: Domain Class Special, Players Guide to Faerun

field[usrChosen1].chosen.field[cSpellExpr].text &= " |" & spells

~ We have to impose secondary natural weapon penalties if secondary tag is applied, 0 with improved multiattack, -2 with multiattack, -5 normally...

doneif (tagis[Helper.NatSecondary] = 0)
doneif (#hasfeat[fImpMultiA] <> 0)

if (#hasfeat[fMultiAtt] <> 0) then
   field[wAttBonus].value -= 2
   field[wAttBonus].value -= 5
The reason the code is what it is, is because the pincer is set up to automatically have a primary attack and this is the trick they are doing to make sure the attack values are being applied correctly (in case they are secondary and also if they are part of multiattack). So, if a creature is set up to so that they are secondary attacks, they should get the correct attack values applied (in other words, you end up removing the Helper.NatPrimary tag). In this regard, you are right Sendric, it should be looking for Helper.NatPrimary <> 0 (is there even an NatSecondary, it compiles, so there must be), since the software is only interested if that is there, otherwise it automatically assumes a secondary attack (the NatSecondary helper is not applied, so it always returns true and then always runs the resulting script).

You can run this script much easier by looking for the condition that imposes a secondary attack on the pincer, and then just deleting the Helper.NatPrimary tag from the pincer attack. This will automatically fix the attack values and damage without having to script it. I just don't know why the glabrezu would need to make its pincer attack secondary, so the script would only be needed for that. Any clue why this code is here?

What confuses me more is that the pincer weapon includes both the NatSecondary and NatPrimary attacks already. The glabrezu doesn't add any tags of its own except a user tag to determine damage and a value tag (2). It's kinda weird how its set up. Unfortunately, I have to go, so I can't delve into this any further today.

If both NatSecondary and NatPrimary are present, NatSecondary is ignored in favor of NatPrimary.

Yes, I would think so. However, the tag still exists which means that the following statement will always come up false.

doneif (tagis[Helper.NatSecondary] = 0)
I'm gonna play around with this some today and see what needs to be done to simplify the situation. I don't think there are many creatures that use this weapon, but there are other weapons that appear to be in a similar situation.

Update: I took care of the Pincer problem, but taking a peak at the effort that would be involved in making wholesale changes, I have decided not to pursue that at this time. It seems likely that most of the creatures have correct attack and damage anyway, so at this point I would prefer to leave well enough alone unless and until someone reports an error.

Just to help, attached in this post is a working version of Enlightened Fist - Complete Arcane.

You can add it to the data sets if you like.


I also have working versions of Complete Warrior - Kensai, Complete Warrior - Bladesinger, Heroes of Battle - Combat Medic, if you want.

Awesome. All of those would be very helpful. I'll add Enlightened Fist now, and whenever you want to send along the others would be great. I'll message you my email address.
