First of all, I'd like to say that Tabletop Simulator is really great. We are a fully distributed team and use it to socialize and play board games together.

However, there are a few things that are not that easy to do. For example:

  1. We need to be able to insert a card back into the deck in a specific position. With this we face a few difficulties, one is that this must be done in secret, so currently we ask every player to blindfold, which requires some coordination and takes some precious time. And even then there is no simple way to do this, you have to cut the deck, then drop the card and merge decks again, which also requires rotating one deck into proper position. We have found that the search function is really great, because you can drop a card in a certain position, but the problem is that you can see other cards in the deck. We would love to see a "hidden search" function that would work the same way, but hide all the other cards. However, the magnifying glass icon should also then change so that it is visible that the player is not checking other cards.
  2. We need to be able to search the top n cards. So currently we just draw n cards from the top, but this is a bit annoying as they are not stacked. So we then drop them on the table and then have to pick the top one up and drop it again so that they stack, then the player can search that deck and after they are done they return the deck back to the original deck. "Search n" functionality would be great here. Of course in that case it would be great if the magnifying glass also changed to indicate the number of top cards the player is viewing.


Would it be possible to include such functionality in a future release?
