    Could someone please assist me in introducing a new feat into Temple+? Can it be done by a noob at my end? I have identified the three file components of a typical feat but don't have a clue about the flags in the feat name.txt file (or much else).

    The feat I want to introduce is Swift Hunter. I have produced a working version of this feat (at least to the same degree as Swift Ambusher does) by editing the Swift Ambusher files attached below to duplicate the pre-requisites and skirmish enhancement element of the Swift Hunter feat.

    I have also attached a version of the pre-requisite file for Improved Skirmish that passes Scout4+/Ranger1+ as well as Scout5+ characters

    Unfortunately allocation of a new favoured enemy by Ranger level appears to be hardcoded and creatures invulnerability to criticals is recorded in protos.tab as an absolute such that creation of Heavy Fortification armour(100%) is easy in contrast to Light and Medium Fortification armours.

    Have you seen this documentation on feats?

    https://github.com/GrognardsFromHell/TemplePlus/wiki/Python-Feats

    It specifies what the flags do and such.

    A feature was recently added to allow specifying when classes select class features. However, I think it just controls whether the 'Features' tab is visited during level up. I don't think it would make the Ranger features appear when taking a Scout level, and I'm not sure it would allow you to choose a new favored enemy earlier than normal if you were taking a ranger level. I imagine programmatic control of the class features screen is planned, but isn't there yet.

    Thank you for giving me the confidence to take the plunge - I ended up using the same flags settings as for Swift Ambusher.

    Please find attached three files for Swift Hunter feat, plus Improved Skirmish pre-requisite file changed to pass Scout 4+/Ranger 1+ characters plus file modifying Scout bonus feats to include "Swift Hunter"

    I hope you like them Ronald.

    I am so happy about this :)
    I forgot to post this in the topics about Warlock and Marshal, but both are on hold until this feature is live, as I will redo both classes using this new excting new feature :)

    Already have the spells Rhinos Rush and Grave Strike in the pipeline :)

    Great work Pygmy.
    This sounds like a very good idea.
