Hello!

First post! Not sure if I am in the right place....be kind

I have created a simple Tactical Objective Generator as the cards are out of stock and managing the cards with duplicates, similar names and dice rolls can be annoying.

Works best on mobile, in landscape mode.

Just wanted to know people's thoughts. You can read more here http://cadianshock.com/tactical-missions-objective-card-generator/

And use it here http://cadianshock.com/40k/tac-cards/

Thanks

This is kind of amazing.

Could you create options to add secondary objectives to the scores (1st blood, line breaker, slay the warlord...)?

Also, it kicks me out of landscape into portrait when it prompts to enter the points value.

Other than that this is really cool and easy to use.

Oh wow thanks everyone!

@tiger - Thank you!

@TheSilo - Secondary objectives, thats a great idea. I am on it. Will update here once its completed. Which device are you using and I will try and replicate and fix that issue with it kicking you out.

@Gunzhard - Thanks! I am a web developer and programmer yes. Ideas?! Lets hear them. You might want to check out this page too http://cadianshock.com/tools-and-aids/

I'm on my iPhone 5 ATM. I'd probably try using it on my iPad [1st gen] too, which is where I've got the rule book and everything.

Not to hijack the total awesomeness of the original idea here...

But here is another idea hah:

A Campaign Map Aid - this picture belongs to InquisitorMack for his (the Whiz store) campaign:

My friend said this would be easy in Flash, but not for me. An online map like this - that players, could view online, ideally where any of them (involved in that campaign) could make changes but at least 1 person can change flags of claimed and lost territories.

In a perfect version, you could select how many planets, and how big (how many tiles) each planet has - then add the Strategic Assets etc...

I noticed that when you select "keep the cards secret" the red button shows player B's cards whether you click for A or B.

If you could get a score card with a read out of the objectives accomplished by each player by clicking the score button, that'd be awesome.

That is awesome. Is there anyway you can make it to where when you click on the points it shows which objectives were completed? Great work, I'm going to get a lot of use out of it.

@TheSilo - thats been fixed now.

Also;

Secondary objectives can now be logged too.

Clicking the score button now shows a summary of the scores.

Added Feedback and Change Log buttons at the top.

Excellent idea! There are also situations when players can gain additional VPs, often linked to warlord traits. Perhaps add an 'other' VP points addition?

I second something of this nature or better yet a random campaign generator for people that suck at keeping track of these things. (planets, mission types, deployment night fighting n stuff, DOW style maybe) not sure how well it would work though.

Has anyone had chance to use it in a game yet?

I have not yet, should be able to next week.

Excellent point Hedgehog, thats been added now. You can now use the new Add Points button to add any number of points.

This is logged as "User Added" points, so you can't just sneak a few on there hoping your enemy won't notice. The summary will show all :-)
