Subject: [pcgen] [OS] [FREQ] SPELLS TIMEUNIT
Submitted by: George
Date: 12-15-2009 6:09pm (PST)
The TIMEUNIT subtag was added to the SPELLS tag to handle cases where a spell-like ability is only usable x times per week, month, year, or whatever. The base.xml file does not reference this subtag, so it can not be used in output sheets. Something along the lines of
would be very helpful. The default TIMEUNIT value is "Day", so by the above, the default <times_unit> value would be "per Day". Having code in an OS which displays any <times_unit> value other than "per Day" (or displays any <times_unit> value if skipping "per Day" but not others makes the OS look bad) would be useful.

I could be wrong, cause I haven't messed with it for a long while, but
TIMEUNIT should be converting by itself. The Default is 'Day' but if you
use the lst code to make it something other than day, it should be
changing in the OS. Is this not the case for you?
RESPONSE BY George
I am using csheet_fantasy_std_blackandwhite.xslt which uses fantasy_master_std.xslt to pull its data. I am currently on 5.16.2.RC2, and there is no display of the TIMEUNIT variable. I have a character with two different SPELLS tags, one without TIMEUNIT, and one with TIMEUNIT=Week. Neither are displayed. I don't see TIMEUNIT referenced in base.xml in either RC2 or RC3.
RESPONSE BY Charles
This does not seem to be implemented at all. This needs to be trackered as an OS Freq. This not only affects base.xml, but also the master sheet.
