  1. I use these from Applied Perspective...They're smaller than the image here. Or is that not close enough?
  2. Those look great. I wish I had thought about spiral bound, that's a lot better.
  3. I just set up to print 7 copies with spinnprint. They called to ask if they could be spiral bound as 80 pages was to big to staple. I will share how they did when i receive them Actually, it's only 20 sheets...and they did staple it. Though a spiral bound one might be a lot better, but I wonder how they would do that? I guess they're the experts. I know I was very pleased with the job they did for me. Now I wonder if they could do the cards as well...
  4. Josh, In the FAQ, you recommend 2-3 ships if playing solo. It also states 2 Tie Fighters per player. Would you recommend 2 Tie Fighters per friendly ship in solo play? Or just the 2? This is very well done.
  5. This is all of the information that I supplied. Or, at least what showed up on my order: Catalog 8.5 X 5.5 Outside Front & Back Covers: ColorInside Front & Back Covers: Color Cover Paper: 28lb premium satin (adds 0.02 to base price) Inside Paper: 28lb premium satin (adds 0.01 to base price) Inside Color: Color Production Speed: Normal 2-3 Business days Copies:2 Job Name:CampaignBook Job Description:This is a PDF file already set up for booklet. Prints on 11.5 x 8.5 paper and produces a booklet that is 8.5 x 5.5. It is 80 pages, but only 20 total sheets of paper. I printed it in B&W using the \"BOOKLET\" option of Adobe and it came out perfect.
  6. I bought the extra dice set. Still don't have a second core. I probably will get the new core, but I sure don't need any extra bits. So far you are the only one I've heard of. Nobody goes there any more, it's too crowded. Don't make assumptions based on very limited input. An assumption is an inferral of data. I'm inferring based on findings. It's from a select amount, but still, only a very small percentage of said amount who answered bought extra dice in lieu of a second core set. Cool. I can almost understand what you're inferring.

  9. I first printed the manual at home. I have a B&W laser that can print on both sides. It was pretty easy to do - just hit booklet and print. A pain to try and staple it together, but it turned out OK. But, I really wanted the manual in color. So, I headed off to my local Staples. Apparently home of the "we can't figure out how to print when given explicit instructions" people... I told them to just select the "Booklet Option", and I wanted it in color. I would have to fold all the pages and they didn't think they could staple it when done, either. On my first visit back, they had every other page upside down. On my second visit back, they tried to use their own software to make it a booklet. Totally wrong. They wanted yet another visit, but since I had already been there three times I decided to give up on them. Poking around on-line, I found Spinn Print. Pretty cool. I could upload the file and they would print it. Hopefully correctly. It took more than a week, but I got back two copies today. Already folded and stapled. Plus, I think they trimmed it as all the pages are even! Staples wanted 54 cents a sheet. For two copies, that would be $21.60, plus tax. I upgraded to premium paper at SpinnPrint and the cost for 2 copies was $13.04. Now, they did get me on shipping for $12, for a total of $25.04. A bit more than Staples, but it is done right, and much better than Staples claimed they could do. But, if you were going to do this I'd sure recommend doing more than one copy. Any way, it was a lot better than going to Staples and the manual looks great printed in color.
  10. I tried doubling them, but it wasn't that great. They easily slip out. I also tried the portfolio, but after I purchased some more ships, I ran out of room. For me, loose leaf works very well. There's nothing commercial for the Upgrade cards, but I did find these reworked ones over at eBay. They work perfectly. I typically don't stack my cards, but these will allow you to have at least four of the same in a pocket. Very happy with this solution.
  11. Not only co-op; this plays a very neat solo campaign.
  12. I did a similar thing, but just on 200gsm matte printer paper. How did you handle the turbolaser batteries? I get the feeling the turrets are supposed to sit on top of the bases and rotate freely - for the time being I glued some tiny tiny magnets to the turret top, and have another magnet sitting under the bottom of the square base. Seems to stay put, and can rotate easily. edit: also forgot to say, that looks AMAZING Thanks. For those turbolasers, I drilled a hole in each piece, then put them together with an escutcheon pin....clipped off the end, flush with the bottom. Seems to hold OK, and they can rotate as needed.
  13. Well, I couldn't wait until my son-in-law comes up, so I started a game solitaire. What a blast! Josh, you have made a great campaign game. Not sure how I'll end up, but I really like that there's a chance to survive (eject!) as well as a chance to earn experience. It's a neat campaign system that you have devised - and I like that I don't need a computer to operate it. Well done.
  14. Finally dry...there's a LOT of pieces. These are all the ones mounted on chipboard I didn't print any of the backs for the cards. Instead I put them in card sleeves, with backs already on them... Really nice work, Josh.
  15. Woot. Finally finished all the construction. I still haven't had a chance to play, but as I've been making the pieces I have been reading the rules - it looks very well thought out. For printing, I printed everything but the manual on cardstock. It wasn't really thick enough for anything but the player cards and the mission decks, so I ordered some chipboard. I used 3M spray adhesive to mount the cardstock pieces to the chipboard. Then, being overly anal, I painted the edges black and then sprayed clear coat over everything. Net result is that all the pieces look great. There's an amazing amount of effort that armoredgear7 put into creating these pieces so that my work actually looks awesome. I'm really looking forward to giving this a try.
