Skill Planner v5 - v6
04-13-2016, 06:37 PM
As a newb to stoacademy I've missed out not having my builds converted to the new v6. Is there a way that this can be turned on as a temp measure so I can make a start at getting to grip with the new skills. Or alternatively if this is not possible, can I import my toons old v5 skills (in a file format) and let the site do the conversion?

If you have saved builds under v5, then you can easily convert them to v6. To do so click on Account inmenu bar and then on Skill Planner builds. Your v5 builds will be listed. Click on them to convert and open them in v6.
I am not sure, if v5 files can be loaded by the v6 skillplanner.
v5 files can be loaded into v6. Just remember to save a new file after you make changes.

Forgot to mention that I've only just joined stoacademy therefore I don't have the skills build in any format other than a copy on paper (retro I know). What software / layout, format should v5 file be so I can load it into v6?

Oh ok. In that case you'll need to go to the skill planner and create it from scratch.

As I said in my previous message - I would like to be able to convert my old toons skill set into the new ones. Starting from "scratch" is of no help so, can the conversion facility be made available online (somehow temp wise). I don't need to save it or edit it, just enough time so I can use pen and paper, then I can update my toons with the new skills and ship details etc.
P.S. I only have three toons so it should not take long.
Thanks for your patience and your hard work on this great site.

Unfortunately there is no direct conversion for skills. The new skill system that Cryptic released is very different.
The converter for the skill planner only converts the v5 data to v6, not including skills.

If you check out other threads on the forums, such as this one I posted recently: http://forum.stoacademy.com/showthread.php?tid=3633
you would see that I already posted a link to the list of new skills and their mapping, if any, to old skills under the prior system, a link which I will repost here: https://www.reddit.com/r/stobuilds/comme...ster_list/
Attilio's work on the skill planner has nothing to do with converting anything here if you need to actually map your old builds to the new system. The mapping he speaks of is from V5 of the Skill Planner to V6 of the Skill Planner.

Ah, I thought the convertor did the skills as well - my mistake. Back to the drawing board...
Thanks for the clarification and tribbles all around!

I was unaware that these posts and links existed, thanks for pointing them out.
