Power Toughness Counter Revision

Postby ShawnieBoy » 23 May 2015, 19:36

I've just pushed an edit to the power/toughness modifying counters. (After some final adjusting).

Currently we only support counters for the +1/+1 and -1/-1 rendered thus:
Old Plus
plus.png (887 Bytes) Viewed 1427 times
Old Minus
minus.png (886 Bytes) Viewed 1427 times

There's already some cards implemented which use +1/+0 counters which aren't showing, and there's also a whole slew of other power/toughness counters in MTG.

To try and implement all these variations on a 16x16 icon is quite tricky, but I think I have something, and would like some feedback/playtesting, as they will have an effect of replacing the current icons we already know.

So, to aid readability, the tokens plus and minus symbols will appear in reation to the power/toughness format. So:
New Plus
plus.png (896 Bytes) Viewed 1427 times
New minus
minus.png (884 Bytes) Viewed 1427 times

This then allows:
plusOnePlusZero.png (961 Bytes) Viewed 1427 times
plusZeroPlusOne.png (935 Bytes) Viewed 1427 times
minusOneMinusZero.png (894 Bytes) Viewed 1427 times
minusZeroMinusOne.png (881 Bytes) Viewed 1427 times

For the counters that involve +/- 2, they will simply appear twice, two icons on the left if 2/0, two on the right 0/2, one then two 1/2 etc.
With these variations, there's a worry that the number overlay for more than one counter may obscure the type:
plusOnePlusTwo.png (895 Bytes) Viewed 1427 times
plusTwo.png (811 Bytes) Viewed 1427 times

And a similar format for the minus versions.

This may get a bit of getting used to for the +1/+1 and -1/-1 as they will appear different, but hopefully that small change will give a logical layout for all those plusses and minuses
