PF Racial Heritage - Humanoid options not present

Postby SalsaBeard » Tue Aug 01, 2017 1:15 am

Hey everyone, I want to first say how amazing this system is! It has made character creation and design incredibly simple and fast.

To the question at hand. I was trying to apply the racial heritage feat to a character and to select the humanoid type ratfolk to give my rogue the favored class bonus for escape artist checks. However, it seems you can only currently select core classes with the racial heritage feat. Is there something I'm missing or is this just not possible at the moment?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forums and PCGen community!

It looks like each non-core race needs coded up manually currently.

Code: Select all
Gnome
KEY:Adopted Race ~ Gnome
CATEGORY:Special Ability   TYPE:AdoptiveRace   
MULT:YES
CHOOSE:ABILITYSELECTION|Special Ability|TYPE=GnomeTrait   ABILITY:Traits|VIRTUAL|%LIST


This is the code for a gnome in the APG_abilities.lst files, the code for Ratfolk should look something like the following.

Code: Select all
Ratfolk
KEY:Adopted Race ~ Ratfolk
CATEGORY:Special Ability   TYPE:AdoptiveRace   
MULT:YES
CHOOSE:ABILITYSELECTION|Special Ability|TYPE=RatfolkTrait   ABILITY:Traits|VIRTUAL|%LIST

@Nylanfs - I've been playing around with the file you referenced. I duplicated all of the entries of one of the races and modified it to Ratfolk, but I still didn't see it as an option for a racial heritage selection. Is there someone else that needs to be modified to get the entries in the selection dialog?

Hmm, there might be probably the best person to ask would be Gwen or Andrew, they deal with the data more than I do.

Hop in Hipchat and ask for @GwenT or @AndrewMaitland.
