SUBJECT: [pcgen] [FREQ] BONUS:SIZEMOD
Date: 9/24/2010 6:56 AM [PDT]
As far as I can tell, the size changes to abilities are always listed as temporary bonuses. I've tried applying it in the race entry, using templates to apply it, and I can't figure out any way to get it to show up as a permanent bonus. I've even tried giving it TYPE=Inherent, figuring inherent bonuses wouldn't be temporary.
In the PFCR files it's being used for animal companion size changes, and the giant and young creature templates. It should be a permanent bonus in those instances.
In the spells files, it has |TYPE=Temporary|PREAPPLY:ANYPC in the RSRD and just |PREAPPLY:PC in the PFCR.
I'd like it to apply the bonuses as permanent untyped bonuses unless otherwise typed. That would make it work more like the BONUS:STAT. At the very least, you should be able to override the type in some way to make it permanent.
