Default Modifier: Increased Range (LOS) - Getting LOS to display?

A cursory search of the forums didn't find anything, so ...

I'm adding the Increased Range (LOS) modifier to Telekinesis and wish it to display LOS instead of 10 for the range in both the Simple Edit window and on the character sheet. I've tried manually editing the rangemax tag via the Advanced Edit window (replacing '10' with 'LOS') but that only results in it displaying '-' rather than 'LOS'.

How would I go about getting it to display the way I want it to?





Also, the included Increased Range (Line of Sight) modifier has a typo in its' levelnames tag. The value is "Base range 10 yards,Base range 100 yards"; the value should be "Base range 100 yards,Base range 10 yards".

Well, technically, it should be "Less than 5 yards, 5 yards, 10 yards, 20 yards, 50 yards, 100 yards, 200 yards, 500 yards, "1,000 yards", "2,000 yards or more"" but that requires changing the cost tag values from "+40%/+70%" to "+90%/+80%" ... :grins:

You'll need to add a gives like this to the "Increased Range: Line-of-Sight" modifier:
Code:
gives(=nobasenocalc to owner::rangehalfdam$, =nobasenocalc to owner::rangemax$, ="LoS" to owner::rangemax$)
EDIT: Tested, working…

Works. Thank you very much!
