Is there a way for them to be use with the dice rolling function?

Here are my thoughts on this
-only one type of die per die size in the program (causing both movement and combat to be rolled together so we can have them both be d6)
-need 4 more color 'dice' green, blue, black, orange (is there one more??? I can't find the post now, probably due to me being awake for the past 20+ hours.)
-it would be simple to have the d12 roll a different color combat die along with it's normal numbers
---Say Blue for example 1-6 = skulls, 7-8 = white shield, 9-12 = black shield

and that leads me to my question

Can the dice rolling program roll non traditional dice? say the d18 or d24 or d30?
if so using the same idea as the d12 we could make all the fun colored combat dice and all you would need is a little cheat sheet letting you know that the d24 is for the black dice and the d30 is for the green dice or whatever.

Is this project even possible or am I just dreaming. Also I have the coding skill of a limp noodle so I wouldn't be able to help in this endeavor if anyone chose to attempt it (if it is possible.)

Let me know what you think. :D

Any changes to the Dice MOD at this moment are not probable. The author of the MOD seems to have abandoned it. It was never developed to the point of release on a live forum, but the beta release we have here is the most stable and seemed to work well enough when I tested it.

That is understandable. Maybe in 100 or so years I'll finally learn how to make the computer programs and I can make one that does what I want. :D
