Hi All,

I've been working on my Squadron Builder again this week and thought I'd post to show off a shiny, new feature I've completed: Random Squadrons!

Stuck for ideas? Need a new challenge? Want to recreate the Rebel Alliance's rag tag fleet? Need a super-quick game setup?

Check it out: x-wing.voidstate.com/build (it's the little question mark in a jagged circle)

Cheers

PS. There is another random squadron generator which is, admittedly, better because it takes into account what ships you own. It doesn't allow you to tweak, save or share them, though. fabpsb.free.fr/

took me a while to locate the randomize button, but i finally found it.. it only displays as a small empty rectangle button under the rebel and empire buttons on the top right of the screen.. no question mark or circle in it (and no, it's not a broken image button, just a blank button)

 

but great work btw :D


Current Fleet

Rebellion: 5 X-wings, 4 Y-wings, 5 A-wings, 3 B-wings, 1 HWK-290, 2 YT-1300's, 2 E-wings, 1 Z-95, 1 Rebel Transport, 1 CR-90

Empire: 8 Tie Fighters, 2 Tie Advanced, 9 Tie Interceptors, 3 Tie Bombers, 1 Lambda Shuttle, 3 Firespray 31's, 2 Tie Phantoms, 2 Tie Defenders

You probably have an old version of the stylesheet cached. Try a hard refresh (Ctrl + F5).

i'm using google chrome as my web browser.. tried it on internet explorer and it works fine and i see the random button clearly

but i also run Adblock on my chrome.. do you think that is giving it issues for some strange reason?

Based on the details provided, I have the same set up and am having the same problem.

love this Squadron Builder.  I especially like the print feature.  Would you ever consider adding the feature of being able to tell it what ships we own?

Glad you like it.

Also, I added new feature today: you can now generate a turn order chart for any two squadrons. Just click the "turn order" button.

I found what I would call a small glitch and wonder if anyone else was having the same problem or if it could be fixed.  I created a squad and saved it.  Later I loaded that squad, changed a thing or two, changed the name and saved, thinking that changing the name would make a new file.  What it did was erase and replace the old file.

No, that's how it's supposed to work. There's a duplicate button at the bottom right of each squad you can use to copy a squad.

Hi Voidstate! Your builder is awesome! My girlfriend and I have been using it to build squadrons and keep track of everything.

 

I do have a… request? though? Could it be made friendly for the Kindle somehow? We both have it and when I tried using it earlier today none of the scrolling options would function. I could see all the X-Wings, but couldn't go down to access anything else.

 

Thanks!

First of all, congrats on the app; it is really top-notch. I use it all the time. One question though: what do you think about possibly adding the scans of the actual cards to the database (perhaps as a hover effect or a third option beside info and add on the iPad version). It is not essential (the program works like a charm without it), it would just be a little cosmetic addition for convenience.

Kindle Fire, the poor person's iPad :)

Why the need to see card previews? I think the information alone is fine enough as it is, and there is another squadron builder out there where you can preview cards by rolling over the names. I've come to like Voidstate's better.
