[Pathfinder] Homebrew racial abilities don't display

Postby diztracshon » Wed Feb 08, 2017 2:31 pm

Hi, so I just finished coding a set of homebrew races for 6.06.01 and for some reason I can't find, the racial abilities aren't displaying. When I made races for 6.04, I didn't have the same problem and I can't work out what's wrong since the log doesn't show any errors and the Racial Abilities tab under Feats & Abilities shows the racial traits as existing. They don't show on the output, though, for some reason.

Here's an example of one of the races and one trait, from my_races.lst:
Code: Select all
Aldar   SORTKEY:a_base_pc   STARTFEATS:1   SIZE:M   MOVE:Walk,30,Fly,50   FACE:5   REACH:5   LANGBONUS:Aklo,Auran,Draconic,Dwarven,Gnome,Sylvan,Undercommon   BONUS:STAT|INT|2   BONUS:STAT|WIS|2   BONUS:STAT|STR|-2   BONUS:VAR|Maneuverability|3   AUTO:LANG|Common|Aldar   ABILITY:Internal|AUTOMATIC|Race Traits ~ Aldar   ABILITY:Special Ability|AUTOMATIC|Flight Maneuverability      DEFINE:Maneuverability|0   RACETYPE:Humanoid   RACESUBTYPE:Aldar   TYPE:Base.PC.Rare   FACT:IsPC|true


Ability category, from my_abilitycategories.lst:
Code: Select all
ABILITYCATEGORY:Aldar Racial Trait      VISIBLE:QUALIFY   EDITABLE:YES   EDITPOOL:NO      FRACTIONALPOOL:NO      CATEGORY:Special Ability   TYPE:AldarRacialTrait      PLURAL:Aldar Racial Traits   DISPLAYLOCATION:Racial Abilities


one trait, from my_abilities_race.lst:
Code: Select all
Race Traits ~ Aldar      CATEGORY:Internal


Code: Select all
CATEGORY=Internal|Race Traits ~ Aldar.MOD      ABILITY:Aldar Racial Trait|AUTOMATIC|Aldar ~ Mountaineer|!PREABILITY:1,CATEGORY=Special Ability,TYPE.AldarMountaineer


Code: Select all
Mountaineer   KEY:Aldar ~ Mountaineer   CATEGORY:Special Ability   TYPE:RacialTraits.SpecialQuality.Extraordinary.AldarRacialTrait.AldarRacialDefault   VISIBLE:DISPLAY   PREMULT:1,[PREABILITY:1,CATEGORY=Special Ability,Aldar ~ Mountaineer],[!PREABILITY:1,CATEGORY=Special Ability,TYPE.AldarMountaineer]   DESC:Aldar are immune to altitude sickness and do not lose their Dexterity bonus to AC when making Climb and Acrobatics checks to cross narrow or slippery surfaces.


If you need more code, I'm happy to give it.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Doug answered this by email --

I'm pretty sure the VISIBLE:DISPLAY in the ability is the culprit; that means the ability will show up in the UI, but not on the output sheet.

I'll add, he's correct. VISIBLE:DISPLAY is for UI only.

Thank you, the problem is resolved now (except for going back and editing a bunch of stuff)
