Critically Awesome Essentials is an extension framework used for the Fantasy Grounds VTT. It uses modules for different functions.

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 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.
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...

I was wondering if the DMSGuild versions of CAE and DM tools include the developmental unity versions? I am mainly interested in the druid shift functions and static and moving spell tokens so I can tolerate if some other functions are not yet working.

The targetting with token for spells is very useful. Is there a way to use it for npc's also?
E.g: Can the DM with the help of this mod use it to target for a fireball cast by a npc ( drow wizard)? Or does it have to be a player character?

You have to reinstall. You would come to this page again and your already purchased items would be available to download at any time. If there was an update, you would get the latest. As far as I know, DMsguild does not have a notification system that would let you know when content creators provide updates.

Ok, I see that CAE was updated. I just want to make sure I don't purchase until it is working for Unity. Please do not think I am rushing you, I am just excited about getting this mod to be able to stack tokens for the area affect of the spells.

Hello, I am having issues with the spell token aspect. One of my players bought the one-click druid for me and sent the gift to my game email so I can download it via this location (DMSGuild). I recently purchased the 3rd essentials, but I can get the token selection to show up. Does having the (legit) files from different emails cause these to not to work together?
Also, the one-click druid was from Dec 2019, I believe both parts came together.

So this is not compatible with FGU yet? The Options menu section is not present while running this and the FGU parts of CAE. Also some things don't seem to work. I haven't tested alot but when I add an encounter to the CT it won't add the XP to the party screen.

I just updated to the latest version of critically awesome essentials and some of my players are having it where their tokens are only 5'. I do not have the portal ext. I have removed them from combat tracker and readded them. I have had them clear there cache and they are still having the same problem. I have one player it is working for but it was working for him prior to me updating.

If you are talking about spell tokens, I've seen this too. It happens for me when you don't drag a player onto the map from the Combat Tracker. Try deleting the player from the map and dragging them back onto the map from the CT. Hopefully the spell tokens placed by the player will now size appropriately.

I would recommend going to the discord page referenced in the README.txt. The developer is on there quite a lot and is receptive to feedback and prompt with fixes. Not sure how often this discussion thread is monitored by the developer.

I’ve been dealing with life issues. I apologize for the delayed response. Please come to the discord in the readme.txt
I have been trying to replicate the issues, and I’m not able to. So I was curious if in discord you could give me a run down of the steps you’ve completed right before the issue, as well as what other extensions you are running so I can try to figure out a way to deconflict if possible.

Hi Bob, I'm having some problems with token stacking.

1) When I start the campaign I only see the 5E Critically Awesome Extension but I don't see the Token Stacking extension, though both extension files are present in my extensions folder. I presume that somehow the Token Stacking extension is hidden but loaded when the 5e Essentials is loaded? If not, this is probably my problem.

2) Token stack resolution seems to work fine on the DM side, but on the player side (from connecting to my own game), I get the following error, regardless if I have 'ONLY OWNED' option or "SHIFT+CLICK STACK"):
Script Error: [string "scripts/token_stacks.lua"] 439: bad argument #1 to 'pairs' (table expected, got nil)
Note I have the Critically Awesome Extensions Module - 5e Player Tools loaded on the player side.

3) Back on the DM side where token stack resolution is working - it works for [player stacked with player] or [player stacked with npc], but it does NOT...See more

More testing - I see the script error above on the player side whenever I move a character that I am not assigned too. So, it appears that when resolving a stack, as soon as i click on the stack, the script error occurs and I get a message in chat saying "unable to open linked character record, because your user does not own that record"

Is there any way to put spell tokens under the player character for a token stack? I've got players who would want to see their icons at all times while having the spell tokens behind their icons for easy remembering of where their spells are. If the spell token is a solid color, I can't see tokens that are underneath it.

Hey Bob this an awesome module, thank you.
I see that you've already addressed the issue with NPC's de-linking from Combat Tracker when a PC moves their token. (the update has NOT been pushed through as of the time of this post)

Curious thing I'm seeing besides that, I(the DM) set up the PC's spell tokens and their size. When I(the DM) pull the spell token to the map it is as expected and sized correctly but when the PC pulls the spell token to map it stays 5ft even though the size say i.e. 20ft. Am I doing doing something wrong?

BobbyJo S April 24, 2020 1:49 am UTC
I will check to make sure that it has been posted.

If you are running portals with DM Tools features, that occurs... I am working to resolve the conflict

Hey Bob, love your work. Have a question, do these one-clicks work in corerpg and possibly custom rulesets? and if so how would I go about getting them to work there. I am particularly interested in the spell token targeting and your previous portals one working in a custom ruleset I use.
Customer avatar
BobbyJo S April 24, 2020 1:50 am UTC
Spell tokens does not... portals does... there is a generic token swapper with CAE that works with CoreRPG rulesets... but does not have spell tokens or stack movement... it does have token stack resolution though

I'm having a problem in FG Classic with the DM tools not working. I have them loaded in properly as far as i can tell in the right folder. I'm able to open them up in the library, and when i go to add a spell token to a spell, there is no option for it in the add effect radial. i'm also not seeing the options specifically for DM Tools in the options button either.
The only things i have running extensions wise for this is;
5e CAE
5E Theme - Wizards
Decent into Avernus Decals

BobbyJo S April 23, 2020 2:37 am UTC
Make sure you have the latest version of CAE in your extensions folder... and only enable the one for classic... the unity compatible one should not be ran in classic... then make sure you have the DM Tools and Player Tools modules in your module folder... the modules need to be available for the features to get turned on due to the resources

I'm also having this exact same problem. I have two extensions available in the Critically Awesome Essentials & One Click Druid (Fantasy Grounds) purchase. I have the FGU one (Critically_Awesome_Essentials_FGU.ext), and I have one that seems to be for non D&D 5e Rulesets (Critically_Awesome_Esse...neric_Token_Swapper.ext). I say it seems to be for non 5E rulesets because when I create a new campaign, and go through the various options, it shows up as an extension option in other rulesets. I don't see an exclusively 5e FGC version of the extension in my downloads for the Critically Awesome Essentials purchase.

I'm having the same problem, but with the Unity version. I am a Unity user. I don't have the Classic extension nor the generic token swapper in my Extensions file--only the Unity file. I check the CAE Unity extension in the load screen, and it is showing up as active in the chat box. The modules are there, and I load them. But the DM Tools options are not showing up, and there is no spell token option in the add action radial. I'm using 5e Conditions and Effects and the Random PC Generator.

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.
