I was playing a pickup game with a friend the other week when a mutual friend and illustration student started taking shots at the quality of our game materials, or more specifically our map sheet, crinkled and worn. Sure it’d seen better days but at least the art is…. actually, I’m not even a fan of the art, and I never was. In fact, it’s about time I stopped being displeased and actually do something about it.
Thanks to Google’s image search API, Sheets will now include an image of the selected unit. This functionality isn’t fool proof, so erroneous images (or none at all) might show up. To compensate you can click on the image to cycle through a few results. Interface-wise there’s a new, small, control bar in the bottom right where the print and full screen commands can be found. Also, for those on a small screen, record sheets can be dragged around the screen in order to see all of their parts. Lastly, I’ve made a few fixes to a few weapon stats (IS AC5, Streak 6, and medium pulse laser).
On a side note, flash security measures prevent typing into text fields while a SWF is full screen, so if you move back to the unit list view Sheets will return to windowed mode. It’s a bummer, but there’s not much I can do about it at the moment…
