Dominion Card Image Generator v1.2
« on: December 07, 2016, 06:11:37 pm »

https://shemitz.net/static/dominion3/

Forcing people to use Photoshop or GIMP or whatever with elaborate downloadable template files has always seemed a bit of a silly barrier to card (mockup) creation, so I wrote a quick tool that lets you type in your card's text, choose some colors and a picture, and get the image generated for you. (Tested on desktop in Chrome, Firefox, and Opera--doesn't work in IE11, but not in a way that gives any error messages or anything, so I don't know what's going on there yet.)

The URL updates itself as you change the various fields, so all you need to do to save a card is copy (or bookmark) the URL and you'll be able to come back to it later. Once you're done, right click the image preview and your browser of choice should give you some options to copy and/or save the image (at a much higher resolution than displayed in the webpage).

Uses edits of the Action template image on BGG,the Event template and Traveller arrow from this thread, plus specific card scans and the Shuffle iT images.

Note: This tool should be viewed as a work-in-progress for the time being. The card images produced for specific texts and other options may look different in the future than they do now. The latest update is version 1.2; replies prior to this post are responding to earlier versions.



Some samples, but written more as excuses to test the various colors and icons than as serious efforts to make good cards...

Wow, I always wanted to make this myslef but I lacked the skill! A few comments:

Text in the middle is Times New Roman, in coin symbols and the such it's minion heavy std.

I have some nicer templates I could PM.

It would be nice if there was a way to upload an image, and an easy way to resize it.

A quick wording/punctuation guide at the bottom would be cool.

The preview coins are off kilter

VP symbols and Big Treaure icons aren't properly implimented.

Still, wow. It's not as good as making them by hand but it's still pretty good.

Thanks for the tips!
Text in the middle is Times New Roman, in coin symbols and the such it's minion heavy std.
Times New Roman should be right unless I messed up the syntax for setting up a multi-word font name... I can double-check, though. The coin symbol thing is a good tip, I didn't think to check that and it should be easy to implement.
Quote
I have some nicer templates I could PM.
If there's something that's generally accepted as the best template (and at a similarly high resolution), that would be good... I won't enjoy redoing all the hardcoded sizes and offsets, but it shouldn't take too long.
Quote
It would be nice if there was a way to upload an image, and an easy way to resize it.
Uploading shouldn't be too hard to implement, but it wouldn't be possible to maintain the image across visits to the page, so there's a tradeoff there. :( It's probably a good idea, but didn't feel like a Day 1 feature. By resizing I'm guessing you mean zooming in so you don't use the entire image? That'd probably more than double the code (and I'd want to minimize it in the API somehow, to keep things simple until you need them complicated), but there might be libraries somewhere I could find...
Quote
A quick wording/punctuation guide at the bottom would be cool.
If one already exists, I could include it?
Quote
The preview coins are off kilter
Ah, I forgot to double-check the positioning on all the corner icons, thanks.
Quote
VP symbols and Big Treaure icons aren't properly implimented.
VP symbols should be okay, you just have to precede % with a space or it won't be parsed as a symbol... I can probably get the rules to be a little more flexible, but again this was enough for a first try. There is indeed no way yet to have the extra-sized treasure/VP lines; I don't know if there's a formal rule that predicts when those are or aren't used, and I hoped if I posted here without implementing that then somebody would tell me how it's supposed to work. :-[

Had to test it myself, so I quickly slapped together an idea I had for awhile...and I was impressed. Thanks for this quick and easy tool!
Edit: Got a decent looking custom color for Seasons cards a la asper and co0kiel0rd. The numbers: 10, 1.1, 1.35. I find it looks better if you set it as both the primary and secondary colors.

A few more things:

The cost and types need to be centered a little better

Type font should be smaller

and their numbers (like on catherdral) need to be bigger and bolder

It would be nice to have an option to specifically bold/itallic things.


I'm working on a quick Wording guide that I'll pm.

Sure, but since such a thing will reuse a lot of the same code--including, I suppose, the custom color stuff--I'd like to get this done first so that I only have to make changes in one place at a time.

Hmm.  I noticed that the lettering for the cost of the cards seems a little thin?  If you compare it to normal dominion cards, the cost numbers are a little thicker, bolder.  Is it possible to tweek that a little?

I emailed him nicer templates, and all the Cost and Coin icons he could need (+/.) He should update it sometime soon, but it's a lot of work I belive so be patient  :).

Could you add a way to add italics?

I believe things like "(This is not in the supply.)" and "(This stays in play.)" are supposed to be in italics.

Edit: Also more control over Bold. It seems to try to auto-bold things for you, but messes up sometimes. Here's an example: http://shemitz.net/static/dominion3/?title=Bold%20Test&description=Choose%20one%3A%0A%2B1%20Card%20and%20%0A%2B1%20Action%3B%20or%20%2B%20%242&type=Action&price=%243&preview=&picture=&color0=0&color1=0

Hey, this is cool artwork.  Fan cards can have whatever name the designer wants, and if he does change it, he can call it "Golden Fountain" to keep this picture.

I apologize, my intention was not to sound rude. However, it is still a good idea for fan cards not to share names with official cards. At the time I posted that, I couldn't think of a way to change the name and keep the artwork, and tried to do something that turned out looking really stupid...

Interesting idea. I fear that it is either too weak in Kingdoms with no other durations or crazily overpowered in Kingdoms with cheap durations.

Well, it is centered... that's exactly why you're running into that. You want it to be snapped to the top instead. This is still not the top priority--I'm busy readjusting text sizes and positions right now--but I acknowledge it's worth implementing eventually.

Version 1.1 released


Fonts, icon positioning, text processing, shadows, and colors have been updated. Color schemes are now based on the Dominion Online images', since those seem to be the most consistent sources. Most worthy of concern is that newlines (read: pressing enter) are now much weaker than they were in 1.0, to allow for finer user control; that makes for some inconsistency with previously generated cards, but I did say that was a possibility. Note also in the Apprentice comparison above that this is now using Empires/rerelease rules: "+1 Card" and the like get bolded even when they are not the entire line. I haven't looked into the question of italics yet so don't try.

Same URL as before. Reload (forcefully) if changes don't seem to have applied.

This is really a fantastic tool!  :) Just one little thing you could add: How about a feature which would allow you to credit the artist in the bottom corner?

Wow, way better! There are, however, a few more things I'dd suggest adding:
- As McGarnacle said, an Artist/Creator credit box in the bottom.
- This might be my number one thing. The templates still look kinda off. I think you just recolored them all, so it looks really off (to me). Now take this with a grain of salt, the templates I see and use might be off while yours are actually right, but I'd still suggest using LFN's whenever possible.
- Selective Italics/Bold, but that only affects 1% of cards so no biggie.
- Actually, this is my #1 thing. The in the middle need to have a smaller number in them. It's possibly the #1 thing that people get tripped up on.

I did take a look at the card templates you sent me and they weren't seriously usable. They were half the size and had inconsistent proportions, inconsistent positions, and inconsistent fill patterns (read: clone brush usage). They weren't even layered. There's no way to use them that doesn't involve scrapping all but one and starting from scratch, but at a smaller resolution, with an unremovable price coin icon, and with no obvious benefits to make up for it.

I am sympathetic to the argument that I should be using the colors people are most familiar with from other templates, even though those have been warped by printing and later scanning, rather than the ones that I think are most likely to be canonical, but using those particular images is not the way to get that result.

I will be looking at the inline icons some more. I know official cards are not consistent about their sizing, but because this is a program I do actually need a consistent rule, so I expect I'll look at a bunch of Empires cards (because they use the most updated style) and figure out what looks right from there. The most important bit is to get the $ symbol in "+$" to turn into a coin icon and the + to be drawn in bold, but resizing can happen while I'm looking at that part of the code too.

Hmm, I didn't realize the templates I sent you didn't work. Sorry about that, I'll still see what I can do. The ones you have are mainly fine, I guess it's just my arrogant preference  :P.

It just needs the number smaller in the icon, compare the 6 in the capital you posted and the official version.

The middle text should be Times New Roman FYI.

Also, if there's room it should give some extra room above and below dividing lines if there is space.

I haven't gotten the impression that the amount of vertical space taken up by a dividing line is a constant, so I'm mostly leaving that to the domain of additional line breaks.

Maybe I should post an (unordered) todo list.
  • Landscape mode for events and landmarks. (Done.)
  • Illustration credit field. (Done.)
  • Draw + and related symbols inside coins as superscripts.
  • Draw coin/etc. icons and their numbers in description at their proper constant sizes, rather than relative to the size of the surrounding text.
  • Make direct reference to the icons' individual widths so that potions aren't assumed to have the same width as coins.
  • Parse and format +$ properly.
  • Add an option for users to define their own icons and accompanying characters alongside $, %, @, and ^.
  • Similarly, a way to specify a set image (in the bottom right) might be nice.
  • Italics.
  • Options for positioning and/or resizing the illustration.
  • Include more verbose instructions, as well as credits, somewhere on the webpage itself.
  • Ruins recolor option. (Done.)

Not on the todo list is completely arbitrary font resizing like on Caravan Guard. There comes a time you have to take things to a genuine image editor program.

Can we sticky this? We really need to sticky this.

I concur on this, and am mainly posting to bump it so it stays near the top regardless.

I've never actually made a fan card, but yeah I agree that this should be a sticky.

The best reason to lynch Haddock is the meltdown we get to witness on the wagon runup. I mean, we should totally wagon him every day just for the lulz.

I greatly appreciate the thought, but if it's going to be stickied at all, wait until I've finished addressing some of the tips for improvement that have been posted :)

Okay, I guess it's Version 1.2 time. I added an Art Credit field and a Ruins color scheme, shifted some other shades around a little bit, and provided a new menu in the bottom left for choosing which template type to use. Landscape mode is in.

Other stuff remains woefully unfinished. Sorry. I've not been doing so hot lately, so I thought I might as well at least put this stuff out, even though the icon code needs work, because imperfect landscape cards are better than none. :)

I'm pleasantly surprised at the quality this generator delivers. Only tried it out now, but wow. If I was able to place images anywhere in the frame, I'd use it over my own any time. Well, maybe not to mock up cards in other languages, as the auto-bolding only seems to work for certain expressions (which also appears to mean I can't define my own). Apart from that, it's very impressive. Chapeau.

I'm sorry, I only just now saw this post. I tried some of the links from the first post in this thread and they seemed to be working... can you give me an example of a broken link that used to work but now doesn't?

(If they've since started working again, I would guess it was a temporary (and local?) DNS problem, since I switched my domain over to https at around the time of those posts and maybe the switching off of the http version happened for you before the redirect started working.)

Hi Violet, thanks for helping out! Here is one of the malfunctioning links http://shemitz.net/static/dominion3/?title=Countess&description=Choose%20one%3B%20Trash%20a%20card%20from%20your%20hand%20and%20gain%20a%20card%20costing%20up%20to%20%241%20more%20than%20the%20trashed%20card%2C%20or%20%2B%20%242%20and%20put%20a%20card%20from%20your%20hand%20on%20top%20of%20your%20deck.&type=Action&price=%243&preview=&picture=https%3A%2F%2Fs-media-cache-

It added % btwn every word and then did not drop them, plus the image doesn't work.

Okay, I see what's going on. For a simple, user-side fix you can make any of your links work again by replacing http at the beginning with https, e.g. https://shemitz.net/static/dominion3/?title=Countess&description=Choose%20one%3B%20Trash%20a%20card%20from%20your%20hand%20and%20gain%20a%20card%20costing%20up%20to%20%241%20more%20than%20the%20trashed%20card%2C%20or%20%2B%20%242%20and%20put%20a%20card%20from%20your%20hand%20on%20top%20of%20your%20deck.&type=Action&price=%243&preview=&picture=https%3A%2F%2Fs-media-cache-

This evening I'll see if there's something I can do on my end to make the old links work so you don't have to do that editing.

That said, you don't have a full URL for an image in that link, so I don't think that one's on me. You can see for yourself that it's just
Code: [Select]
https://-media-cache

I just wanted to pop in and say that this is a really great tool you've built.

Seems darn near feature complete, and excellently easy to use.

Thanks :)


Links to the old http domain should be working now, though your browser cache may get in the way and assume the old redirect style for specific urls. Try opening one of the links in a private/incognito window to prove the point until your browser catches on that something has changed.
