Critically Awesome Essentials is an extension framework used for the 5th Edition D&D ruleset in the Fantasy Grounds VTT. It uses content modules for different functions and assets.

To use THIS module, you MUST HAVE "Critically Awesome Essentials" (available here).

DM Tools is part of the Critically Awesome Essentials family.

Welcome to the third module developed for the Critically Awesome Essentials extension (Extension required to utilize the features of this module):
 

Module #3 - DM Tools

Critically Awesome Essentials' DM Tools will allow players to place their own spell tokens that can be used to represent 5th Edition D&D spell entities, such as Spiritual Weapon, and also allow the player to use the spell tokens as a visual targeting feature.
The size is set in the spell action and can auto-target all available tokens within the area if used as a targeting token.
DM Tools will allow the DM to set a “token stack” which will allow the characters to have additional tokens added to theirs within the 5E ruleset.
This is especially useful with paladins auras, light and visible ranges, and other such emanations.

As this is a complicated programmed feature, if you are having any issues, PLEASE DO NOT make comments below, but rather come to our Discord and tag @Diablobob so he can help you...

So the stacking isn't working so great in Unity right now. The token stacking is still under development as others have said. I can't wait for it to work... it's essential stuff. There's also a cool new NPC spell targeting feature on the combat tracker. It makes me wonder if FGU is just hardcoded to resist proper stack resolution, or they would have done it long ago. The spell stuff is really worth it by itself, though. Just don't expect FGU miracles with the stacking right now. Hopefully in the future it will be resolved. Really appreciate the Bob... nice, bright fellow who is quick to reply in Discord.

I watched the long video, but am not clear on which products contain which features. Where can I get the map teleportation?

If you have some trouble with the extension, rest assured, I contacted the creator and he knows and is working on a fix. This is an awesome, but complex, extension. Kudos!

I have added my extensions and Mods but I don't see the Critically Awesome Essentials options in my settings. Nor can I do the spell token layers like showed in the video. The files are added in the right main folders and loaded in the Library modules. What am I missing/doing wrong?

Can we get a new video that shortens the length of DMTools, nothing against the PodCast but 1 hour is a bit long to get the information of what DMTools does, especially when I need a refreshing course on what it covers.

Not sure if I'm doing something wrong, but as the DM, when I test out the spell tokens from a character's sheet, it will resize correctly (entangle as an example, will resize to 20ft), but when the player tries this, it resizes to 25 ft, and I for the life of me can't figure out what they're doing that's different. I'm using the D&D spell tokens 2.1 from Gareth Jensen. I've also posted on his product in case it has to do with that, rather than this module, but figured I'd ask as I'm at a loss. Thanks!

Use the discord server provided above. Look for the Diablo-Bob channel. The author and/or others can answer your questions there.

But in general it works in FGU; however, it frequently breaks after FG updates, both Classic and Unity (at least at the time of this comment). But the author has generally fixed things in a reasonable amount of time to keep things working after the updates, but the fixes don't roll out the day after and sometimes there can be considerable wait time.

But for the current status, ask the discord channel.

An issue with Spell Tokens: I have downloaded the latest version (here) of the CAE and newly purchased DM Tools. I have opened up the module concerned and placed the extension in the right folder.

However, when I right-click on a spell hourglass and then add action, my radial pop up does not include Add Token.

I have watched the YouTube vid 3 times through. Still no radial pop up.

Known issuse or conflicts?

I must be doing something wrong, even after watching the full youtube video twice. Players are unable to add tokens to maps, locked or unlocked. Second, the shift + middle click does not create stacked tokens. Please help.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.

Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
