Spell Organization

Post by zach_holbrook »

Hey all, does anyone know how spells get ordered in character creation? I'd like to arrange them by SP cost. I've looked at the spells.json file and don't see any pattern.

I think it is in the same order as what is in the player class allowable spells list. If that is true, you can reorder that list in the player class file or we could add a sort by sp cost in the editor. I think you can sort by spell name and available level in the editor, but not by so cost.

Got it! That makes sense. I wonder if I can go on, deselect the allowed spells, and reselect them in the right order? I'll give it a try.

If you sort by the “available at level” column (by clicking on the column header), that should get you close. Then you can go into the actual text file for player class and move parts around to fine tune.
