Default Gurps character builder

Not incredibly tech savvy so forgive this possibly foolish inquiry, but how do I modify the base settings for advantages like High Tech level. I'm trying to build a character in a modern game and the character has access to tech 8 but the advantage keeps saying tech 4.

It's determined when you create the character. If you start a new character up it will list CP, max disads allowed and then the base TL. You can change this "default new character"-settings in [Options].

But I know that's not what your asking.

For an existing character You go to the Attributes tab, where it shows ST, DX and so on. Then select Tech Level. Then press [Edit]. Here you can change their TL, but it will cost CP, as it's an attribute.

To change the CORE TL as you ask you have to press [Full Edit Window] and then change "basevalue" from 4 to 8, or whatever the settings core TL should be.

If you're talking about GURPS Character Assistant: if the actual campaign is at the higher TL, you can click on the little globe icon in the toolbar (or pick Campaign Settings from the View menu) and change the Base TL in the Campaign Options box. That'll change the base TL for all that stuff (but not for things already added to the character).

I actually solved my original question thanks but its for the 3rd edition vesion not the 4th.

I'm now trying to figure out how to lower the tech levels of the skills

Like its a tech level 7 game but I want the character to have forensics at that, unfortunately the higher tech advantage is changing all the TL skills to 8s

There is actually a forum specifically for GCB help, further down the forum list here at SJGames. You can get to it here: http://forums.sjgames.com/forumdisplay.php?f=63

Down at the bottom of the page of each sub-forum, below all the threads, there's a box labelled "Display Options". Inside that box, there's a dropdown labeled "From The", and the dropdown menu has a time period in it. It's set to "Last Month" by default, meaning you'll only see posts from that time period. Change it to "Beginning" and click "Show Threads", and you'll see a lot more.

Thanks a moderator helped me as well, though also pointed out that the forum is not incredibly active either.
