Displaying 7 proficiency stars at character creation

GrammarsaladGrammarsalad Member Posts: 2,488
edited December 2018 in UI Modding
Right now, we can safely set max profs to 7 (the stat wraps around if you set it to 8+). If you have a character that has 6-7 ranks in a given proficiency, it displays on the character sheet, and everywhere else. It just doesn't display at character creation (and, I think, level up). As a sample, in this screenshot, I have created a fighter with 7 ranks in bastard sword in ToB. But, as you can see, it only displays 5 pips at character creation.




How would I change this so it displays all 6 or 7 pips?

    @Grammarsalad: There's quite a few steps, so I think it would be easier if I posted a before and after of the relevant code.

    Search UI.MENU for
    table "chargen.proficiency"
    This is the list we will be editing.

    Change the list from this:

    Awesome! Thanks @Bubb
    I knew about profsmax, but it's good to have that info out there

    The columns represent levels, not campaigns.

    The first column is always level 1.
    The second column is for levels greater than one and less than the next column.
    The remaining columns are for all levels equal to the columns specified level (column header) and less than the next columns specified level, with the left-most columns having priority. The last column is for all levels equal or greater than the columns specified level.

    In it's default, column 1 is for level 1, column 2 is for level 2, column 3 is for levels 3-5, column 4 is for levels 6-8, and the last column for levels 9+. In the case of extending to 7 pips, you would add two columns, one with header (12) and the other (15), to keep the current trend (the maximum increases by one every third level).

    Right now, the only reason a Fighter cannot raise their proficiency to 5 at level 2 is because they don't receive any proficiency points at level 2, as "PROFSMAX.2da" would allow it if they did.
