- sorry. i've got a problem with my isp right now. They keep dropping my connection mid download.----- Original Message -----From: David E CortijoSent: Friday, January 26, 2001 12:00 AMSubject: Re: [pcgen] Feature request - Point BuyI personally agree that there should be a stat-purchase method of
generation. FYI - the feature is already on the feature request list
(it's number 23, listed under GUI/Program, called "support purchase type
methods of stat generation). How Bryan implements it is his perogative,
though I happen to agree with Arcady on the point-buy calculator
thing. Another method would allow you to set custom methods of generation
for stats in addition to those in the DMG - how that would be integrated
though throws a big wrench into the works.
