Happy Friday and welcome to another Roll20 Community Corner! Let’s get to it shall we?!
Hi rollers, here’s what’s new in the Tech Corner.
On the Production Server
More upgrades and polish to the Addons System.
Updates to our internal reporting. We care about supporting the stuff you show us is important.
Volo’s lair maps are now an Addon.
Updated Gifting Page.
Bugfix: Sheetworker issues after removing a linked token from a page.
Bugfix: PayPal not being available for certain marketplace purchases.
Miscellaneous Compendium corrections and upgrades
On the Development Server
Character Sheet list ordering for sheet translations.
Further polish to WebRTC video and voice chat.
Improving interactions between token drops and default game settings. Including better Compendium interactions.
We’re continuing to focus on polishing existing feature this week. We made some adjustments to Addons, fixed a boat load of bugs, and modernized the Volo’s lair maps to be Addons. Most of what we’ve been working on the Dev server are behind the scenes but Phil B. got a new ordering system so that sheet translators can reorder lists (like skills) to make ordered sense once translated. In related news I (Steve K.) found some time to get working on 5E OGL 1.7.
To GM or not to GM…
We’re looking to create more video content to help folks become GMs and we need your help! Brand Manager Suzanne is currently seeking your wisdom over in this forum thread. Our goal is to help budding or brand-new GMs to take that final leap into running their own games. If you’re interested in sharing your thoughts, tell us in the thread linked above…
If you’ve never GM’d before, why not? What has made you hesitate when you think about GMing? What one thing would you like advice on, that might convince you to GM your next game?
This API Script has been around forever, but it’s amazing. Most of our Devs actually include it in every game! TokenMod gives you the ability to do pretty much anything you can normally do to a token, all from the chat panel. While this may not sound too exciting, it means you can make macros that do things like give vision and light to a character at the push of a button.
To learn more visit our TokenMod wiki - Pro users can try TokenMod now from the Roll20 API Script Library from the one-click install menu in your game settings.
