Last week, Fairway wrote a tutorial for Component.Studio that showed off the power of layers, variables, and other elements in creating the cards for Sneeze. This week, he’s looking at another power: variables to create in-line icons.
Fairway’s been a pretty big fan of Component.Studio since its original release. He recently used it for an update to one of his original contest entries: Sneeze. In this quick tutorial, Fairway walks through how he easily created a deck of 108 cards with variable icons and colors.
Today, Fairway is taking a look at a brand new service from the folks at The Game Crafter that lets you “automagically” create and maintain cards and other component images with templates and a spreadsheet: Component Studio. This new service will make the lives of anyone creating or maintaining large numbers of game components lives much easier.
