Some suggestions for VCC
I downloaded VCC and used it at my home game earlier this week and wanted to post with some comments and suggestions for future enhancements.
I like this program quite a bit, I believe it has some very good potential. Kudos to you for a job well done.
On to my suggestions, in no particular order of importance:
Healing: the characters in my game are currently 7th level, and they already have a plethora of healing powers and modifiers to their healing powers available to them. This makes it extremely difficult for me to keep track of their hit points accurately.
For my own use, I think it would be good to have a button for PCs that you can click to mark them as bloody or not bloody and dying or not dying. Possibly this could be worked into the conditions enh. you are working on now.
For those that do prefer to keep track of their PCs hit points, you are missing two crucial pieces of data, healing surge value and # of healing surges. You should be able to enter these for each PC.
When my players heal one another, they typically just call out, for example, "7 points plus your healing surge value". A button that would add whatever amount you typed in the box, plus the characters listed healing surge value, would be great for this. Further, a button where you could click it and it would automatically decrease the players # of healing surges remaining by 1 would be very helpful as well (since not all healing uses a characters healing surges).
Further, some way to manually reset a players hit points to a specific number would probably be helpful, like for when the PCs rest and heal, many times they are down only a couple of hit points because it wasn't worth spending a surge on.
Action Points: Some sort of tracking mechanisms for each PC's action points remaining, and Daily magic item uses remaining would be helpful.
Perception: a way to track each PCs Passive Perception and Passive Insight scores, plus a way to see a table of these scores quickly, possibly sorted in order from highest to lowest would be invaluable.
Thanks again for your hard work on this program, I very much appreciate it!
