This is an EXTENSION and MODULE for use with the Fantasy Grounds VTT.

Automatic Record Links is an extension that provides automated linking of information.

This extension will work with ANY FG CoreRPG ruleset.

The text or description fields of "Story" records, "NPC" records, and "Quest" records will automatically be compared to your "Story", "Image", "Table", "NPC", "Battle", "Item", "Vehicles", "PC", and "Quest" records.

The name of the record being matched will ignore a numbered index prefix.

So records like "00.00.00 Index" will be matched to the word "index".

The name of the record and the text being compared is not case sensitive.

Symbols like - and ' will cause the adjacent characters to be merged together.

So "Kuo-toa" will match with "kuotoa".

Other symbols become an empty space.

So "Drow (variant)" will match to "Drow variant" as well as "Drow" and or "Variant".

If a record is found, filters will be displayed above the link window associated with what type of links are available to filter.

***PLEASE NOTE: Records that cannot be modified may not be filtered. Copy the record by dragging the shortcut to the matching data library, or if it's an NPC, you can put it in the combat tracker.

You will have to excuse me as I am autistic.

I am struggling to see what this mod actually does. Would you mind doing a video please?

Here is a quick and dirty video to help you see. Notice that after clicking away from the text area, it automatically populates the window with links of what’s mentioned. This is very useful for worldbuilding and organizing campaign information. I hope this clears things up. Please come visit me in Rob’s discord channel if you still have questions

Rules Edition(s)
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.
