Re: Heroscape Codex

Something about VirtualScape or Tabletop Sim would be cool.

A terrain article including 3D printed items.

Flashback article that highlights great threads of the past. Like the custom Greyskull thread.

Re: Heroscape Codex

I've recently discovered it, have subscribed to it, and read it. So far I have enjoyed each article and don't really have any suggestions.

I will add that I did not read it before because I didn't really know what it was or how to subscribe to it.

Re: Heroscape Codex

So glad you've starting reading it, bmon! Did you find all the PDFs of the older issues too?

Re: Heroscape Codex

My favorite thing from the old PDF versions was the scenario and custom terrain articles. Current version I like the strategy articles. I don't always read all of them because sometimes they seem a little lengthy.

Re: Heroscape Codex

I agree with Tornado's idea of highlighting threads of the past. There are a lot of cool map and custom threads that get forgotten about, as well as a ton of iconic strategy threads/articles that I think would be great to be put back in the spotlight once in a while, especially for people newer to the site.

Do you read the Codex?

If not, let me know why!
Not often. It doesn't feel like there are any news to find anymore, and I don't see much publicity for the Codex to keep it in my mind. I often forget about it entirely (despite the fact that I thought I had subscribed to it) unless I see something about it on the front page.

I also typically devote too much time to HeroScape already, so reading custom or map-making advice doesn't interest me a lot. I apologize if this isn't the majority of the articles, but for some reason all that I can really remember about reading the Codex is these kinds of things and the interviews with members of the site, neither of which are high priorities for me to spend my free-time reading.

I think that a more consistent and varied presence on the front page could easily convince me to read more often, especially if we start seeing things like sneak peeks/interviews on upcoming C3V releases, stuff with Craig Van Ness and Soaring Rhino, or even on occasional site updates.

Something else that I would be greatly interested in reading would be Strategy Guides, much like we used to see for the Books of classic units. I would love to read articles in that old format talking specifically about C3V-inclusive stuff (it could even double as drumming up interest for the most recent units), and if these could be linked to the relevant Books after release, it could stand as some new long-standing content for people to read and get interested in the Codex by.

I apologize if any of the above is already being carried out, as I haven't seen these things as a relative outsider to the Codex. If they are, then I think that it is more of a problem of appearance and getting the Codex (all parts of it) out there to the community. I certainly wouldn't complain about more front-page activity.
