I've looked over the forums and I can't seem to find an answer to this.

In my games I have a house rule that all characters receive Charisma x 2 free points for contacts. They also get a free 2/1 contact for the setting. But i can't figure out how to do this in the editor. Can anyone help me please?

The simple way to do this is to use the "Build Points" adjustment on the Permanent Adjustments table on the Personal tab to add the correct number of bonus BP, or add a negative number of "Build Points Spent" on the same table to compensate the character for some of the BP they spent on contacts.

The more complex way is going to require the "Mechanics" tab, which I have not had the time to add to the editor yet, so I'm sorry that's not available yet.

Is there a particular reason why they couldn't add the contacts AFTER it's locked where contacts are free?

Um...no. No there is no reason. Now I feel really, really dumb.

Don't feel dumb. You asked an honest question, and now have two ways to solve your issue.

Could we get a "Free Contact Build Points" adjustment in the next version? There's already several different BP and BP limit adjustments, so it wouldn't be out of place to have one specifically for contacts.

I would like to know how to turn off the validation nag if you choose NOT to spend creation points on your two "free" contacts during creation....

Personal tab - the Permanent Adjustments table. Add the "Starting Minimum Contacts" adjustment, and set it to -2.
