So, I knew I was walking up to a DC 35 balance check. I could have just transferred past it, but I figured, lemme check my skill, maybe I will have a good chance...

Info skills reported a +30 for my balance checks. So a 5 or better and I would succeed.... 80% chance of success. I liked the odds and gave it a shot.

My skill check was 22 vs. DC 35. Fail.

Now, I understand there may be things that affected the roll and dropped my bonus below 30. What I would like to suggest is that the Info Skills command report that modified number, so I dont end up thinking the odds are in my favor when they really arent... after all, whats the point of the info command if it gives the wrong info?

If the balance point script was able to take additional modifers into account, Info Skills should be able to as well.

Aye. G.I Joe.... god that brings back memories.... Razz

As for Info Skills.... what would be super would be.... for the report to have both the unmodified skill bonus, and then the fully modified bonus in parentheses after it. Like:

||||||||||||||-------- Balance +30 (+18)
|||||||--------------- Jump +12 (+3)

Or something along those lines....

That is a swelligant idea! Maybe the Dragon can slip it into his coding projects he's on now...
