Card Tokens

An Add-on Module for Foundry Virtual Tabletop

Author: Xaukael Project Source: Project URL Versions 10 - 11 (Verified 11) Last Updated 6 months, 3 weeks ago

Drag cards to the canvas from hands or piles. On dropping the card on the canvas, you will be asked where and how to play the card withe the standard dialog. When the card moves to that pile/hand a few things will happen:

  1. an actor folder will be created if one does not exist already
  2. an actor representing that card will be created in that folder
  3. a token will be added to the canvas with the face showing based on how the card was played

The card actor will have the same permissions of the hand/pile the card is in so owners will be able to move the token and flip the card using the token HUD. If there is a drawing with text matching the name of the hand/pile, the cards will appear at that drawing when played whether they are dragged to the canvas or not and regardless of where they were dropped. The token will have dimensions based on the dimensions set for the card. Keep this in mind when creating your cards.

The addition of the face image on the token HUD is the only UI addition in this module. This module was created with the intent of making cards behave on the canvas as much as I expected they should.

Because card games are often played from different perpectives, this module also adds the ability to rotate the canvas. Holding the Alt key while scrolling will rotate the canvas Ctrl and Shift change the degree to which the canvas is rotated from 5 toto 15 and 45 degrees respectively(these modifiers will not work if you have a token selected because the token would rotate instead).

depends on the warpgate module to spawn the cards and a GM must be logged in
