Online Custom Quick Build Card Maker

Recommended Posts

I want to get back into X-wing now that the Clone Wars have been added. I just found your tool and it is amazing, however it doesn't seem to display cards for the two new factions. Is that a known issue?

 

Thank you for the amazing tool, it is exactly what I wanted to be able to print some ships out to play with my son.

I’m glad you’re enjoying the tool! Yes, I do plan to add the two new factions. I’ll update this thread when I’ve gotten to it. It’ll likely happen in the next few days.

The Custom Quick Build Card Maker has been updated to Wave 3!

Since there are a few items on infinitearenas.com that use the quick build card format, here's a quick summary of what each one does so you can find what you need:

Custom Quick Build Card Maker: Design your squad using a squad builder like YASB 2.0, export the XWS code, and paste the code into the custom quick build card maker. Hit "Submit", and you now have quick build cards ready for printing based on the squad you designed.

Quick Build Squad Builder (QBSB): Design your squad using the official FFG Quick Builds. Once you've picked your squad, print and play.

Quick Build Deck Printer: Want to print out the entire quick build deck for a faction? Then use this! I've added the ability to print just the recent wave updates as well if you've already printed the pre-Wave 3 cards.

I printed from the custom quick build yesterday.  On Firefox, printed to PDF, but the black backgrounds turned white. 

I had the same problem. You should have "More Settings" option in the print dialogue box. You have to check the "Background Graphics" box in there. That should turn the white to black.

@J1mBob What are your suggestions for getting these printed? Would Makeplayingcards work? I printed to PDF to keep the highest quality image but I have never used that site before so I am not sure how it works. I was messing around and saw that I could upload individual images but I figured if I am using a PDF with multiple images in the file then that wouldn't turn out how I wanted.  What do you suggest? Thanks for your hard work with these they will help me get up and running a game with my son a lot quicker.

Is there a way to turn the background images off?

I now have a "Card Art Pre-Sets" drop-down near the top of the page. You can select "No Art" in the drop-down. I've also got a couple other card art pre-sets listed in there, but I'm not happy with how they're coming out yet.  If anyone knows how to filter an image for edge detection via CSS, please ping me!

Just found this tread, awesome work.

Question: what does the "paired with..." mean? Shouldn't it show the threat level of that quickbuild?

I was looking for the most intuitive way to display the official quick builds that consist of two ships.  In the official quick build format, this particular Ezra Bridger build cannot be purchased by himself.  Instead, he is paired with a Hera Syndulla build.  So I put "paired with" in the area I'd normally put the threat level and then on Hera's card I include the threat level bars and "Paired With Ezra Bridger." Since Hera shows a threat level of 6, I didn't want that on both cards.  Someone may interpret that as a threat level of 12.

Sorry for double post. This are awesome!

Is there any way into which this cards could be done in a different language? I'm not talking about manually translating them, but perhaps there is a resource that has the cards text translated into different languages and is it's simple to create them with it.

Thank you! I'm happy you are enjoying them.

Providing various languages is on my todo list, and I believe I've found a way to do it by parsing information provided by the official app API.  It hasn't gotten to the top of my todo list though, because I seek input here for what I should work on next... regardless, I will work on this!

The cards are intended for print-at-home so I wasn’t trying to match any official card dimensions. The size of the cards is simply from printing at 96 dpi and using the entire roughly 300 pixels by 700 pixels card art that FFG has made available. To get different card sizes, I would need to either distort or crop the images. 
 

I am working on making tarot sized decks, but that’s a separate project.

@J1mBob The Custom Quick Build for huge ship does not seem to work anymore, or at least it is unable to finde the linked images.

Where can I donate for the Random Quick Build Squad Generator? ;)

The Custom Quick Builds for huge ships is now fixed.  Thank you for letting me know I broke it! 😁

Yes, random quick build squads! I want that too! But there are a few other things I also want to build, so I'm asking my supporters to chime in on what should be developed next...

I’m loving these cards! Makes organizing squads infinitely easier! Thanks for this.

 

On an unrelated note, is there something similar for SW Armada? Being able to put upgrades on a ship card in that game would also be a huge time saver!
