I made a few changes to the initial basic design – now users will get a table of their own creations that they can update, download and delete, followed by one with all others for their perusal and download if they wish. I might transform that into a personal dashboard page if I ever add a unit card creator as well, but for my first app/page I am pleased and hope others will be too!
Down to a lost password reset function to add, then I will get this online.
Fixed download and fonts – need to do some work on log in form then its done and ill get it online. This is now what the downloaded .jpg will look like:
Didnt have enough time to do these with transparent backgrounds…
Getting closer – the download is not working correctly and I need to get the font on the card changed but almost there. These are the display all cards (with options for update and delete for user who created the card only) and display one card pages (something with images is not downloading them, just the non-image parts, so have to figure that out and import the Crom font in there too):
I will stick with the original. I tend to over-complicate things left to my own devices. I hope it looks ok thus far.
So the project is moving along, basically making sure the info is going where its supposed to, and have done a tiny bit of .css(making it look the way it should) so fonts still need done and the 2 other tables for info, but its getting there. The site will resize and fit pictures but I will offer recommended size and also if the user can do a transparent background that will look even better (I will be doing that for all the Barbaric Splendor ones using my miniatures; this one is just to get everything in place so havent bothered with that yet!). So this is the page to display your card and once I figure out how to transform it into an image, save it to your computer. Also, I am trying to recreate the original cards as best I can – but thoughts on adding Prowess, Wits, and Vitality above the rating below the image?
That is what I was thinking, but figured I should get a second opinion – have to kind of plan for all kind of edge cases!
Working on the database for characters now – surely nobody would have more than 4 abilities even after a lengthy campaign, correct?
Should be able to start working on this in a couple of weeks – I will have 2 weeks to finish it for class, which should allow for all the basic functionality I have in mind. I will probably go with the full card, allowing for input of name, stats, and abilities. Not sure Vitality needs to be input there since it changes, but I suppose I could put the starting vitality anyway. There may be different abilities for the Barbaric Splendor version I am working on (slooooooowly lol) but that should be simple enough to opt for whichever version. Users can access the whole database of cards but only a cards creator can edit or delete it. You will also be able to access a list of just your creations versus the whole database if you so desire. Image storage and uploading seems to be a bit of a nightmare so users will have to input a link to their images for the cards, which will then be automatically resized to fit the space for them.
First off, I love Sarah, she is always so great on WILTY!
More good info to contemplate as well! I think I have decided to just stick with the 36 by 36 map – I was so enthralled with a map design that when told it probably isn’t going to get made in that size that I just tried to find a way to stick with it. Working on making that map happen (with some minor customizations) with some other options instead of changing all the other things. We barbarians aren’t always successful in acting wisely rather than on impulse!
Thanks guys, good input. I am leaning toward larger map size, but then also considering the idea of truly solo scenarios using just one hero and no followers or co-op players for small maps. That still might limit scenery but it might be more action packed.
Ok, got it. Thanks Mike.
Looks good, I will try these stats as I learn, maybe change to having an ability that I and my co-creators of this being had in mind that are a little more complex.
Thanks for the input!
I am guessing he would be around 60mm tall or so; he is 140 with the base and wings.
A bit of both – in my own little world demons are just otherworldy/other-dimension creatures but are still just flesh and blood. Plus its low magic, so…. I guess more of a natural creature but with possibilities within that context if that makes sense.
Yes indeed – he did the War Llama, and will be doing a piece that Conan fans should love, Dweller in the Ruins (art by Zarono), for the coming Kickstarter (it will be an add-on, special price for previous backers and free for all-in backers):
