    SUGGESTION: Text based Cards (maybe using XML)

    Hi,

    I would like to suggest the ability to create a deck of cards using text, maybe based off an XML or HTML file. This would allow quick prototyping of a card game without having to create lots of images and would cut down memory footprint of simple decks. Maybe have the ability to have a custom front for frame.

    I am really loving Tabletop Simulator, keep up the great work!

    +1 from me here. The ability to create a set of cards by typing in what is on a playing card would be ideal, especially for little changes as I've noticed I can't load the card set image in if I also have it open in Photoshop.
    Like board games? Then check this out!

    Must admit, I thought this would be more popular. Being able to make a deck of cards using XML or just Plain Text opens up a huge range of possibilites including random encounter decks, alternative to dice, and quick proto-typing.

    Anyone have any thoughts on it?

    I also think that my idea with the semi-lock and above is good, but the forums seem to be pretty dead besides "general discussion".

    yah, I know how you feel - I have a lot of good suggestions here on the board, I've not seen a single one added or even positively discussed by the devs.

    those are just a few. the last one is recent, so I totally understand(at least for now) it's not been discussed a lot so far. And, I understand that it's just the two of them, so if they are reading this then I hope they don't get the wrong idea - I don't mean to sound harsh or rude or anything, because I love the work they're doing, and they're doing a great job at it. But I'm just wondering that now that they're officially released - maybe they could think of hiring a few other people to help them with development and lessen the load that is now on just the two of them. There's not even been something as simple as "This is good, I'll put it on the list, but no promises on when it'll get done." in those threads I mentioned above, so that like, I know a dev saw it, and is going to work on getting it added at some point in time. Believe me, I'm patient. So if I knew something I suggested was going to come at some point, I have the patience to wait. Just would like to know my voice is heard. I'm beginning to think that *I* myself, am possibly being ignored, for being a big supporter of this thread here(which is not mine):

    Ok I'm ranting now so I'll stop before I write a huge novel of a post, but yah...

    OK, so I'm gunna have to take back some of these harsh things I said - mainly about being ignored possibly. I posted a bug about the cards a few days ago, and it was fixed today/yesterday in the recent 5.0.2 hotfix. So they ARE reading things, and taking care of them. Again I realize it's only the two of them, so they can't always reply all the time to everyone's post when they're busy with working on what's important.

    So if what I said possibly hurt someone's feelings, I'm sorry.

    +1 from me, but i think that will require some kind of simple card deck builder integrated into TTS main application (which is not a bad thing )

    I think a seperate app like the Java one used for images would be fine but it just needs a text based card deck to support it. Oh it sounds so easy to just type it

    Hope the devs think it is a good idea and, now knowing there is only two of them, I am blown away at how useful an app they have created.

    Hi,

    Seems like the suggestions thread is back to its old active self so I am going to try and inconspicuously bump this thread. Please don't ban me!!

    Thanks in advance,
