Feature Update

Hi everyone,

We are back today with two new complimentary features:

  • basic creature copy/paste
  • creature stat names import/export

The first allows GMs to pick a creature and then Ctrl-C to copy the creature. This includes the name, colors, stats, health, and scale. It also is ready to support polymorph and tinting when those are released.

The best bit is that when you copy a creature, we push a URL to your clipboard, which you can share with others to allow them to import the creature directly into their campaigns.

You may also have used campaign settings to set up specific names for a creature's stats. You can now share these too. The campaign panel has gained a small button that will copy the stat names to your clipboard in a way you can share and that others can easily import into their own campaigns.

This is just the start for creature copy/paste. In time we will bring the full multi-gm undo/redo support you've come to expect from regular building.

But for today, that's the lot!

We hope these help a little. Happy adventuring.

Thank you!  This will drastically drop the amount of time it takes to set up a board for play.  Keep on doing what you're doing, because it's working out great!

I'm super-curious as to how this with interact with the HeroForge integration...  If I copy a creature blueprint that I've created on a HeroForge mini of my own devising, will it *fail* if someone tries to paste it into their campaign that I haven't added my mini to, or will it get a default stock mini, or what?

Looking forward to finding out!

I imagine normal restrictions would apply, so it'd likely give an error about how the owner isn't in the game, at least if i were programming these edge cases it'd be what I would do

That's fantastic!  Definitely going to use the heck out of that.

I ran a game on the weekend and a few things came up.  Is there any plans to add a Cube to the measurement thing, and is there any plans to add some sort of "Persistant sphere/cone/cube" effect marker?  Currently I try and just have my players leave a measurement mark on the board, but it would be nice to be able to colour code them, or name them like "Fog cloud" or "grease stain"
