Library: Scene Packer

A Module for Foundry Virtual Tabletop

Author: Blair Project Source: Project URL Version 10 Last Updated 6 days, 3 hours ago

A library to help content creators package up Scenes and Adventures to solve several frustrations when importing Scenes from a module compendium. With Scene Packer the following works:

 

In summary, it makes importing a Scene from a Compendium (via an "adventure module") work as though you build it in your world. You could even use this module as part of a "shared compendium" where you keep linked Journals for use in multiple worlds.

Scene Packer is system agnostic, it doesn't matter whether you're packaging up a D&D5e module, or a Pathfinder one, or an Alien RPG one, Scene Packer doesn't mind.

 

Where do I start?

I have put together a site to help build your first module (with or without Scene Packer integration). It takes all of the guess work out of creating your first module, and in a lot of cases means that you don't have to do anything in a text-editor. Simply fill in the form and download your ready-to-go module zip file. https://sneat.github.io/scene-packer-module-generator/

 

There is also a how to tutorial video which you can follow along with:

 

Asset Report

Scene Packer also contains an Asset Report (accessible via the bundled Macro or by right clicking on a Scene in the sidebar) which details which assets will have broken references when imported into someone else's world.

Usage

There are several Journal entries bundled with Scene Packer. In them, you can find references on how to use Scene Packer both as a Content Creator and as a GM.

If you would like some help packing your module, feel free to stop by my Scene Packer discord server and I'll happily help.

 

Macros

There are several Macros included in the Library: Scene Packer compendium entry. Each macro has a comment at the top describing its purpose.

 

Quick Encounters

Support for packing Scenes with embedded Quick Encounters data was added in v2.2.0 of Scene Packer. There is a Journal Entry bundled in the Scene Packer compendium which describes how to pack these scenes.
