The title came out a little odd
But what I am thinking of is that, now in beta8 there is the possiblity of dice sorting, making the module display the rolled results in the chat like this :
and not like this :
This is a very nice and much apriciated improvement.
But I wonder, can it be taken one step further ?
Is it possible to implement a feature that allows user input like this:
When pressed the user may input numbers, say 4,5,6.
Then the module rolls and displays the result like it does now, but adds this at the end of the line
"Total #4 = 4, Total #5 = 4, Total #6 = 2 .
So that, not only is it sorted, but the user may specify what number(s) he is looking for, and the module informs him of the total.
This makes the dice alot quicker to use, as the user does not have to count manually from the text how many 4’s and 5’s he rolled.
And it does not enable anyone to cheat, since the only user input is what # the dice should filter “out” and display in a total.
The result of what I am looking for would be like this
Rolls 10d6 : (User inputs 4,5,6)
1,1,2,2,2,3,4,5,6,6 : Total #4 = 1, Total #5 = 1, Total #6 = 2
Perhaps the Total in bold or italic to make it stand out from the rest of the text.
Now for those who read all of this ranting, thank you.
And to the developers. Is this something that can realistically be done?
