Re: Welcome to C3G!!!

Hi,


Sorry if this is the wrong place, but it's hard to search the forums with something as generic as "printing" .


I was trying to print out some of the C3G cards, but I noticed that the proportions seem off when compared to the official cards (both when printing from the PDF and the JPG). When I print the PDF using "actual size", the width is 12.5 and the height is 12.1. I could of course print at a slightly reduced percentage like 0.992 which should come out at a width of 12.4, however the height would then still be 12, even though the official cards are 11.6.


Is this by design? Or should I change some printer settings? I'm in Europe, so my printer's paper size is A4, and all measurements above are in centimeters . I did try various settings of course, like keep the paper size setting in Adobe Acrobat on Legal and trying to set it to A4.


BTW I create my own cards using a template Photoshop document I got from Heroscapers somewhere, and when printing from that one, the size is spot on.


Thanks, Zeus

The issue you are having is that the PDFs are generated so actual page size is 8.5 x 11 inches and you are printing to A4 paper. I remember reading somewhere what method other Europeans were using. I'll try to find it and drop you the link unless someone else posts a response for you here.

Nope that's not it. It's just a simple case of us including a bleed area. Each card has a trim line that you cut to.

Re: Welcome to C3G!!!

Thanks both for your replies. I think even with a bleed line all around, the proportions would still be the same, right? So I think Japes might be correct in that it has to do with the letter <=> A4 thing...

@japes : If you do find that info, I would still love to try it!

I can assure you it has nothing to do with the letter vs. A4 thing. I am in Australia, and A4 is our standard as well. Mine fit perfectly in a pile with the official Hasbro ones. It might be something to do with your printer or their settings.

It's because you don't post enough.

I bet you got accidentally edited out when SirG was added to the Legacy list. That's the right alphabetical neighborhood. You've been reinstated, anyhow!

Re: Welcome to C3G!!!

Howdy C3G fans!

The Heroes have been doing a little restructuring behind the scenes, and it's time we let the public in on the changes.

The first piece of news is, unfortunately, that something is going away. Allies will no longer be able to buy their way into the Danger Room. It hasn't been generating the participation we'd hoped for, and managing Allies coming in and out has proven to be a bit too much overhead. We will continue to use it as a development space for Sidekicks and the testing of new factions and special projects, but Allies will be granted access by invite only.

But fear not, true believers! We've got some good news to announce as well. A while ago, we made it possible for an Ally to bypass the public vote and buy a design thread directly, but we only ever got a couple buy-ins because the cost was so high. In order to open up Ally opportunities and make that purchase a little more attractive, we're lowering that cost from 50 points to a mere 15 points for figures, and just 7 points for glyphs, destructible objects, and spells.

Spoiler Alert!


Previous restrictions on purchasing a design thread still apply. To quote:

Quote:

There are some conditions to this new reward:
  • Design threads are still subject to Hero approval and a rough design idea must be submitted to the Heroes after purchase, with a 96 hour period for Hero approval or veto. However, if a design is vetoed by the Heroes, the purchasing Ally may submit another design or have his/her points refunded.
  • Design threads cannot be purchased by an Ally that would be leading concurrent designs with any other designs in process, and will not be eligible for any other design opportunities during the design process.
There is also one new restriction on Ally design threads, which is that two Ally design threads cannot be in the testing phase at the same time. If Ally Design A is ready to go into public playtesting, but Ally Design B is already in the playtesting phase, then Ally Design A will have to wait. Once Ally Design B goes into the editing phase, then Ally Design A can go into public playtesting.

If you're worried about the Heroes' vote for approval, don't be! If you workshop your design in the Public Design Thread ahead of time, you should be in great shape. Summing up, if you're an Ally or just a fan and you want to design for C3G, it's as simple as this:
  • Have something you want to design
  • Earn 15 points (or just 7 for something other than a figure). The easiest way to do it is by playtesting. If you're not an Ally already, you will be by the time you earn that many points.
  • Workshop your design in the Public Design Thread.
  • Post your design or a link to your design in the C3G Shop and request to start a design thread. The Heroes will vote and get back to you.

We will be slightly tougher on absentee LDs than we have been in the past, because with a relatively easy buy-in, we want to discourage people from starting design threads and then just disappearing. It's a hassle for the Heroes when that happens. From here on out, if you abandon a design thread that you happen to be running, that thread will be pulled into the Sanctum and the Heroes will do with it as they wilt. It won't necessarily be seen through to completion.

In fact, that fate has already befallen Miss Martian's thread. But before a new round of nominations and voting can happen in the public design poll, we wanted to talk with the Allies and fans about whether or not that poll should change, and exactly what those changes should be, now that there's an easy way to directly buy a design thread. It's been suggested that the poll go away entirely. It's been suggested that the winner should get to run their design for 0 points instead of 4. It's been suggested that the poll become more of a character poll to influence Hero/Sidekick output, like the March Madness poll. The Heroes haven't come to a decision yet, so what do you, the public, want to see?

Re: Welcome to C3G!!!

First of all, awesome news! I miss the danger room because things look a little dead without it, but 15 points to bypass the public design contest? Yes please! I will certainly be purchasing one as soon as I knock out my 2 research papers.

These are the two ideas I like best. Getting to run a popular design is a reward to the designer and the public who want to see that design LD'ed. I also like the second option: voting through characters.

Re: Welcome to C3G!!!

Hopefully the end of the Danger Room will actually lead to more LDs in the public.
Well it is not ending, all the good stuff will be there.
