    Before I hand over the project files, I would like to give you the planet cards we made so far.
     
    As a little bonus for the whole time you waited, I incorporated all planets from all the books (=Core Rulebook, Under A Black Sun, Beyond the Rim and Suns of Fortune).
     
    I am sure, there are still errors and typos in there. I am happy about every feedback I can get, so feel free to message me.
     
    To the file:
     
    With the link you can find a zip file. I do not know what you would like to do with the cards, so I included all formats:
    - all planets as single jpeg files a) with a print border (3mm) and b) without
    - all planets as single pages as pdf a) with a print border (3mm) and b) without
    - all planets on A4 or letter pages a) with print border (3mm) and b) without
    - a backside if you get them printed

    Hi guys!
     
    Sorry for being gone so long. My real life kicked back in and there was absolutely no time left. Additionally my call for a proof reader remained mainly unanswered, so there was only little motivation to put more effort in them.
     
    Now I had some time left and finished the Planet cards. These were the least effort to proof read. All supporters should have gotten a private message with the download link. If you haven't, please let me know.
     
    As a little bonus for all your waiting I included the planets from all released books (= Core Rulebook, Adv. Under a Black Sun, Beyond the Rim and Suns of Fortune).
     

     
    I am still looking for someone to proof read all the weapons and gear cards though I won't have too much time in the next months (unfortunately this project needs a lot of time).

    Hi!

    While waiting to continue with the Menagerie, I looked around for another project. Some days ago mfluder posted Custom NPC Cards (http://community.fantasyflightgames.com/index.php?/topic/91545-custom-npc-game-cards-for-players/). I really liked the idea, so I decided to design some of my own.

    EotE: NPCs, Vehicles, Planets, Weapons, Armors, Gear and Starships.





    The pictures used are from Wookipeedia (Tie) or from the Under a Black Sun PDF. Teemo stats are place holder.

    TWO LAYOUTS
    I created the cards in two versions: One with the original EotE Fonts and one with Windows Standard Fonts everyone should have on his computer.

    Updated, version 2 is available for download!

    Link to the PSD-File which uses the EotE Fonts (you need to have them on your computer so that you can use them)
    http://www.mediafire.com/download/xpnzhcixbv95vfd/EotE_Custom_Cards_Original_Fonts_v2.zip

    Link to the PSD File which uses the Windows Standard Fonts (I tried to fit the look as closely as possible)
    http://www.mediafire.com/download/3tzgqtas0vrafbc/EotE_Custom_Cards_Standard_Fonts_v2.zip

    The files were made with Photoshop CS 6, but should work with most of Photoshop versions. All orange layers include information which needs to be changed for your own cards. To get the blurry edge of the picture insert the picture into the PSD, rescale it so that your picture is slighty larger than the blurry template. Then hold CTRL and click into the mask of the original picture layer (the black/white one next to the thumbnail) and click on "Mask" which is located at the very bottom of the layer tab.

    I see my work as Work in Progress, so Feedback is, as always, appreciated.
    I also plan to collect NPCs, Vehicles and Starships and put them all together in one big PDF but that needs some more time.

    Well I guess most of you have noticed the whole story unfortunately without happy end.

    This was one of the demands from Donovan. My original version had all of them included.
    We had this discussion in the original thread, only that I did not involve myself into it, but the answer remains the same: They put it under a CC-License. If you do that, you have to expect that things are going to be altered - that is the reason behind these licenses.Again: If you do not want to have it altered, don't put it under a CC-License. It's as easy as that.Yes, I could have informed them. I saw that point and did my best by taking it all offline and stuff. What I got with that behaviour, we can see now... And by the way they handled their re-release now, you can see how important this point was really to them...

    As unprofessional as the work with these guys began, as unprofessional it ended. You can all read in the original thread how I handled the topic. I put the original one offline, I was always friendly and tried to be polite and have a good working relationship. Donovan in his place made a lot of demands what and how the things have to look, where they have to be and that he wants to host it (I guess which was already a preparation for taking it offline soon after that) which I all agreed upon.
    I had only one wish: I wanted to be the one who announces the new version on the board.
    Even that one wish he couldn't fulfill due to not being able to communicate with his partners.
     
    And what did I got out of all of that? My work is put offline, I am discredited in all of his posts/blogs and, which is the most ironical of all of that, the new layouter took all my photoshopped and edited pictures out of my pdf, copied the way I arranged the stuff and they did not credit me.
    The one point they all went crazy ape **** about in the beginning, are they doing now on their own. They did also not inform me in any way before they put it online.
     
    I see all the points Donovan was so pissed about when I posted it. But he did not seem to be interested in doing it better when it's his turn.
     
    For all the effort I put in, and the result and disrespect I get now, this is just disappointing and unprofessional. And I lost my hesistance to join the flame war I had in the original thread because I won't let myself being discredited in that way.

    I love the layout of the EotE and decided to take the wonderful, but boring looking "Unofficial Species Menagerie" and layout it and change some of the included pictures. The project is finished and I want to share it with you!
     
    Feedback appreciated!
     
    Edit: Thank you for your feedback so far. I was happy to came to results with this project that I missed to think it complete through, as Donovan pointed out. I did not want to upset anyone or express disrespect for the great work here, and therefore I will take it offline till I could get in touch with the creators and see if we can find a way together.

    I finished all the cards and am proud to present the result to you.
     
    I have to admit that I did not check back every weapon/planet I received and just copy/pasted everything in.
    Before I provide the supporters with all the cards, I'd like to have somebody check the cards for typos and errors from the copy process.
     
    The one checking them receives the cards like a regular supporter.

    And we did it! Wow! Thanks to all supporters for finishing Episode 1. I'd appreciate it, if you could send me your files asap (I hope nobody needs the deadline till the 17th...) and that I can get the cards done quickly!
     
    As mentioned in the first post, this was just a test run if the system works - the answers seems to be clearly yes! That means we can move on to Episode 2. I'll post the rules, list and stuff for Episode 2 within the next week which has a LOT more objects in it, so this is going to be a real challenge (also picturewise).

    I think I didn't make it clear enough with the picture resolution, sorry for that. What I meant: The images don't need to be exactly 900 px x 600 px this is just the minimum. They also don't need to be in that exact ratio.
     
    If you have an image which is 3432px x 1356 px this is perfectly fine. With the ratio just keep the image area of the card in mind and that the main part of the image should fit in there. Actually the larger the better in terms of the image. So you actually don't need to do any graphical work, just make sure the image is large enough.
     
    I entered your objects in the table, right now I can't check which I've already received because my provider is down for maintenance.
     
    But another really good message: I created the first cards and they look really good. Keep up the good work!

    With version 3 I am going to focus more on the printability of the cards. I settled now for Poker-sized cards and will provide sufficient border material, so that they can be printed in online stores without white borders/drift.
     
    Additionally I will standarize the look a step further by adjusting the lower text frame border on a common level, the heading on the same height and such stuff.
