After scoping out the official one, I am definitely partial to yours!

I've posted a new version (see first post)

 

Minor tweaks this time: 

  • Weapon section: Combined "Qualities" and "Attachments" into a single large blank box for more versatility/space.
  • Weapon section: Added visual markers to better divide the 4 weapon slots.

Here is a sample of how a filled character sheet would look. Note that is is based on a stock character that doesn't follow the character creations rules precisely.

Love the sheet but for one thing, the very small fonts.

It's indeed kind of small. There was a lot of information to fit in there so not much to be done about this. Can you believe I used the same font size as the official character sheet ? (And in some case a little larger.)

Yes, I can. It's my only real complaint about the game. I literally have to read the rule book with a magnifying glass.

Whad'ya know! I was able to bump the font size up almost everywhere by adjusting the columns widths a little. (See first post)

 

I've also:

  • Swapped position of the "Wounds" and "Strain" boxes.
  • Removed the word "Attachments" from the armor box so other types of enhancements can be written there.

Not yet. I don't know javascript so I can't do it myself. That being said, I've approached Kallabecca to see if he would be willing to help with this part. He's the one who did a formidable job adding the fields to my beginner game character sheet.

I've got a good chunk of the forms done. I started work on the JS side of things to handle the check boxes as well as the creation of the dice pools. That is going a little slower as I'm trying to make the same JS work for each field without needing to know what name it is and what names belong to its neighbors.

Tomorrow is a holiday, so I'll probably work on it then since I don't have any gaming plans.

So, I didn't get as far with the sheet as I wanted, but it is almost done. It autofills the dice pools with the appropriate G and Y symbols and updates them when Skill Ranks are changed or the Associated Characteristic. I haven't worked out how to figure out which Characteristic belongs to the blank fields (one under Knowledge, one under general skills and one in the combat section). So two of those don't work properly yet. Also need to finish up a few more fields elsewhere. Then it should be ready for use.

Oh sweet! I love the idea that it will autopop the dice icons. That's a huge help.

Ok the symbols being included is quite awesome!

I like the clean look, not too crowded, easy to read.

 

While I understand why you put all the combat data on one side, the combat skills being split from the other skills is anoying me. However, I think it's a clean usefull layout.

 

Are you going to do the Vehicule sheet and the Group sheet? That would be great!

 

EDIT:

 

I've been trying to add a PC in your sheet, and I've noticed that the Available XP and Total XP textboxes are not right-aligned, the number appears on top of the text.

 

Also, I'd reduce the font size of the text in most of the textboxes, it would allow to add more text.

 

In the Talents and Special Abilities, Center the Page and Ranked textboxes.

Activation, I'm not sure, "Passive" is too big to be written there, maybe when (if) you reduce the font, the whole word can be written. The summary is a bit too small, again by reducing the font, it may be just enough.

 

I'd also like to be able to have a picture of the character on the sheet, but then again, it would put the data on 3 pages...
