[Custom races] Star Trek

Post by Grummore » September 19th, 2014, 1:51 pm

Hi,

Back in 2006, I used to play PBF game by VASSAL with my friends and we eventually gathered on the new ti3wiki.org web site. My free times (which I no longer have :-) ) were partly use to build several templates and races for my own pleasure and to be use by everyone. Many of these were use and play tested.

Here is what I have created a while back for STAR TREK.
Game in --> For the Good of the Commonwealth (Xxcha)
Working on --> Stargates variant for Vassal

Very nice! I like how you used different textures in the backgrounds.

Thank you obsidian. What do your think about the last template I made, the flagship template for stargate?

The Flagship template looks great. Good font match. That one's pretty easy though since the only thing you really need to change is the text and the symbol. It would be neat to erase the SotT logo and put in your own Star Trek logo

I would encourage you however to check out my race sheet template again. There are several (small) ways in which it is more similar to the original FFG sheet than the one you used here, particularly around the central image, its mask, and the gear-shaped frame. The Klingons in particular look very "square". But perhaps that is just my personal preference to be as similar to FFG as possible.

On that same topic, if you find a background texture that is more like the original FFG background, let me know!

Sorry for not answering, I didn't notice it!

True, the first racial sheets I made didn't had this faded gear image around the race image. If you have a look at those stargate custom I made, it's there. But yeah, I will have a look at your template again and try to see what I missed that I could add to mine.

Did you do the art for the race symbols? They look really good!

I am a google search master and a photoshop modifying artist (not really good at creating).
