    And I've used that step-back/redo feature alot in the 12LP mode. It is nice to have that kind of control over the creation process.

    I mean, cool.

    But re-rolling repeatedly to get "perfect" builds isn't in the spirit of the system.

    If you want a point-buy character, use the point-buy system.

    That's all I'm saying.

    I don't use it to create a perfect build. More so to create a character that sort-of fits with what I imagined them to be. I've never had a perfect set-up anyways but I got a good set of skills for what I had in mind.

    Sure.

    Which is what the 12pt buy is for.

    I just don't understand why people don't use that if they don't want a randomly generated build.

    I imagine mostly to avoid seriously anomalous results that would create a character with a really inexplicable story and skill set. I know I've seen some really odd stuff come out of that generator with multiple sourcebooks enabled.

    I get that.

    What I don't get is the reluctance to use the 12pt buy build system which a lot of people seem to have.

    Probably the fact that it requires GM permission, as per the tooltip.

    I feel like most GMs are going to have a LOT more issue with "I just re-rolled that bit 'till I got what I wanted".

    the 12-pts build also hang in the uplift path sometime. but at least it is close to be functional :)

    what i don't like of 12pt is some steps i'd rather roll. so i just roll it myself and pick one.

    Does anyone know why Modiphius' character creator is down? It's been that way since the new year. My guess is that they are preparing for an update possibly adding Yu Jing's options to the builder but I'm still a bit worried about how long it's been down.

    They finally responded on their forums. It’s being worked on currently.

    That is good news. I hope the webpage is back online soon and hopefully with a Yu Jing update.

    It looks like all their apps are out, not just the Infinity one, so not necessarily tied to an update for us.

    That is discouraging. Whatever it is I hope the company can fix it for all their customers.

    Looks like the 12 LP Uplift Life-path doesn't crash anymore though.

    That's far more useful to me than YJ lifepaths (goes away and builds a pintsized Cat Assasin and cephalopod Hacker/Engineer)

    *Shrug*

    Who knows at this point.

    Best bet is to just get the sourcebook and roll up something yourself.
