    X-wing plug-in for Strange Eons

    I have started working on a second edition plug-in. It's a lot to do and I don't have super much spare time but it is mostly devoted to this now. My interest for x-wing has rekindled with second edition Yeah, there are some things I wont be able to do before the release, but there is a lot of things I can do before so I am not in need of any scans as of now. Thanks for the mental support though! I know reverse maneuvers are missing and wave 14. Is there anything else? I don't have the motivation to do any more first edition work, but if it is only those I believe almost anyone can do it. Visit the github page and start contribute It is mostly scans of the backsides of the pilot cards I am missing right now, but thanks a lot for sharing this.

    Make Epic 2.0 Great

    By doubling the hull points and toning down or capping the shield regen I think the huge ships will feel more like huge ships. It bothered me that you essentially had to commit all ships to bring down a huge ship in a single round, otherwise it would just regen back to full shields again the next turn. To me if feels much more thematic that huge ships slowly get more and more damaged during the course of the battle (losing one system or capability after the other) instead of being a much more an on/off state as the current implementation (exaggerating a bit here for emphasis...) One of the design philosophies of X-wing 2ed seams to be that the game progresses towards the end state and infinite regen and impenetrable defences is of the past. I hope this philosophy is carried over to epic play as well.

    The upgrades now have alternative art feature, developed by kalhamaar at github. There is a branch for pilot card alt arts that contains some changes but it has not been worked on for a while. I am not actively developing this plug-in at the moment (spare time goes to other projects) but I can see what I can do next week, I think I can devote some time then. There are some information if you hover your mouse over the information diamonds below the text field (see red "circles" in the figure below)

    Hi sf1raptor, Sorry I have missed to add this It is added to the top of the backlog. Can't say when this will be added though since time is a bit of a concern for me right now.

    Hi all, Sorry for the lack of updates. I have not updated the plug-in much for a while but it is available on github (LINK) and there have been contributions from other members. This includes support for new waves and Conditions cards. Check out the Wiki (LINK) for details on how to download the plug-in etc. And if you feel up for it, you can even start to contribute yourself.

    T-47 scale

    Why would the snowspeeder be "a bit out of scale" or "a touch out of scale" when FFG could make them precisely in scale? It would be extremely stupid of FFG to make them 95% in scale with the troopers or similar -- its not that much plastic and we are a bunch of really easily offended nerds here so it would be suicidal of them to mess with the scales if they really doesn't need to (AT-AT?). So give FFG the benefit of the doubt and assume it is precisely in scale.

    Sorry, no unfortunately not. You can see here what I am working on and the order of the backlog: https://github.com/Hinny/strange-eons-xwing-plug-in/projects/1 I asked armoredgear7 about permission to do something like this and he said it was OK. He will not give me access to the original templates so this is going to be a big effort for me creating all the necessary graphics for this only using the published pdfs. If anyone would like to help out with creating blank images of all the cards, I can get this done much faster than I otherwise can (and I promise to move it up in the backlog as well...).

    [new] Odanan's Custom cards

    These are awesome! I know you haven't asked for feedback, but since this is a forum I will give it to you anyway Some minor things that came to mind while reading this stuff: In my opinion, the ps 2 A-wing should not have an elite slot. Test pilot title will give it one anyway for free. Also, it feels kind of wrong with a ps 0 pilot. Better to choose ps 2 and ps 5 (20 points) or something like that Ahsoka Tano already have an pilot ability (TIE Fighter). It would be more fitting if you use this ability for the A-wing also instead.

    I would suggest you ask Chris (the author of strange eons) about this (http://cgjennings.ca/eons/). I am just the author of the x-wing plug-in and I have no knowledge about this issue.

    X-wing plug-in for Strange Eons

    Thanks! Yeah, this is intentional to keep the tool simple and to force you to adhere to the official (and unwritten) design choices. Although I understand the standpoint of wanting to be able to change everything it was not the intent with this tool. You have photo-shop for that. I will probably not change this. I would suggest you to create a title card to add rules text to your generic pilots. I don't understand your problem. What is not working?

    X-wing plug-in for Strange Eons

    Yes, this will be added when wave 10 support is added (whenever I have time for that).

    X-wing plug-in for Strange Eons

    Thanks! I have some ideas in the pip-line for custom upgrade icons. It would basically be a way to convert a black-and-white symbol to a proper upgrade icon and to the 3D-feel gold symbols found in the back of upgrade cards in one go. I know the steps necessary in the open source image manipulation program GIMP to make this look great, but I haven't yet had the time to learn how to automate the process in javascript. Regarding custom pilot card backsides, see this post.
