4e Power Toolkit v0.5 Beta brings custom class uploading, commenting and voting

A searchable database of custom 4e classes made by people around the world? That’s what dnd.playwrite-blog.net aims to be – with your help!

Version v0.5 of the 4e Power Toolkit is the first step towards this objective. Along with a boatload of general improvements, including proper class feature support and feat powers, you can now upload your classes and allow people to comment and vote on your work.

A lot has been crammed into v0.5, so I’m expecting it to be a little rough around the edges. But I have spent the last week bug-testing, and I’m feeling confident.

Here’s a complete list of changes:

* Added class upload. Visit dnd.playwrite-blog.net for more details or try out the feature in the Class Creator

* Added class feature support

* 4EC and 4EP files can now be opened directly by double-clicking on them

* Increased the size of the class modifier dialog

* A few miscellaneous tweaks to various dialogs

* Cancelling a Save dialog for the Class and Power Creator will no longer save a file to the application directory

* “Feat” is now available as a power type

* Switched order of “Keywords” and “Action” modules in Power Creator

* Fixed issues with newlines not being correctly converted and displayed in HTML and XML

* Class Creator and Power Creator windows now resize their controls in a more useful fashion

* Added new version update window with changelog

* Corrected version typo in changelog

* Merged EXE and DLLs into single file with ILMerge

* Added DotNetZip v1.8 (dotnetzip.codeplex.com)

Check out the 4e Custom Classes website (it’s a little empty right now, but I’m sure that’ll change soon), and be sure to download v0.5!

  1. !!!!! Downloading it now o.O

  2. Downloading it now! I look forward to when the Race Creator feature is implemented. Any time-line on that? I would also love to see a Monster Creator feature added.

  3. There’s a great Monster Creator over at Asmor (http://www.asmor.com/programs/monstermaker/index.php) that outputs HTML. :)

    Race Creator is next on my list. v0.6 should see it implemented.

  4. This is great it’s exaclty what my friends and I needed. We’re working on a home made game based on the 4th Edition play style. We plan to use your program quite a bit and look forward to updates including the race generator. We’re going to be featuring your work on our site soon as well as linking back to you. THANKS!
