Default [Phoenix] Tracking Arrows as Ammo

Howdy, Folks!

Prepping a new game and tweaking around the Phoenix character sheet, as usual. Honestly, there are two parts to character creation: actually creating the character (GCA), but also then being able to present that character in a customizable way (Phoenix). I'd be lost without both.

My question: I have the Phoenix option "Print item uses checkboxes in the equipment block?" set to "Yes (with values)", and so when I add equipment like, say, "SMG, 9mm" it adds 'tick-off' boxes of the amount of ammo in the Equipment List.

But when I add "Bow," or "Arrows," or any combination of, I can't seem to get arrows to show up as ammunition, to display tickboxes of how many arrows the character is carrying. I feel like I've done this before in the past, but for the life of me I can't figure it out now.

Anyone have a hint? I've tweaked every Phoenix option that seems applicable with no luck.

Thanks!

As soon as I read that I was thinking "that should just work" then I realized what the problem probably is... you're loading the Low-Tech data file aren't you?

The Arrow in the Basic Set includes the tag() that must makes that work. Low-Tech completely replaces almost every TL3- equipment item from the Basic Set, and unfortunately didn't include the correct tag to track ammo. You can add the tag by going into the Full Edit window for Arrows, the tag() name is uses and the value you must put in the tag() is count*1

Nice! Perfectly correct on both the issue and the fix/workaround. Thanks for such a quick reply.

Will the Low-Tech Data file be updated then?
Also I noticed that withon the file itself it states: "Incomplete=Yes"
So I am nto sure what els eis missing but will that be updated as well?

Thanks for the GREAT work Eric!
