3rd Edition System tile

Postby mj12games » Thu May 05, 2005 4:23 pm

Here's a sample of what I'm thinking for a system tile in the 3rd edition of Sovereign Stars:

The "$" is the system's income, while the "#" represents its population.

Can we get the actual number in place of the symbol.

oh, yeah and these are the coolest things I have ever seen, they rival the TI 3rd edition graphics in quality.

well done, man!

Very nice loooking
(though how a swirly red ball looks like Eden, I have no idea :) )

I really like the symbols over numbers. Gives it a strong feel.

Really? I put in the colored boxes to avoid having the numbers -- I thought this was a nice effect.

Well, I wouldn't go that far... I have already found things I would like to change... but thanks for the encouragement. :)

Depends on your point of view, I suppose. :)

Two things, tho...

1) This is just a sample, and

2) "Eden" is the type of world, not the name. "Cassia Primus" is the name of the system.

Ah, I was reading it as System:World for some reason.

What if you put <AGR> or <EDEN> at the bottom with the stat bar?
