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:
plus.png
Old Plus

minus.png
Old Minus
minus.png (886 Bytes) Viewed 812 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:
plus.png
New Plus
plus.png (896 Bytes) Viewed 812 times
minus.png
New minus
minus.png (884 Bytes) Viewed 812 times


This then allows:
plusOnePlusZero.png
plusOnePlusZero.png (961 Bytes) Viewed 812 times
plusZeroPlusOne.png
plusZeroPlusOne.png (935 Bytes) Viewed 812 times
minusOneMinusZero.png
minusOneMinusZero.png (894 Bytes) Viewed 812 times
minusZeroMinusOne.png
minusZeroMinusOne.png (881 Bytes) Viewed 812 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
plusOnePlusTwo.png (895 Bytes) Viewed 812 times
plusTwo.png
PlusTwoPlusTwo
plusTwo.png (811 Bytes) Viewed 812 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
