Thread: Target Cards that look part of the map Set I: Factories

    Lightbulb Target Cards that look part of the map Set I: Factories

    After not having any truly good looking target cards, I made my own. This is Set I, factories for the Industrial Area mat for bombing. And they were made using graphics from scans, followed by careful color matching, with the result they look like just another part of the mat:
    Left Factory:

    Right Factory:



    They are regular card size, and feature the regulation red dot at the center. The crosshairs are there simply to help you find the card! They both go about a ruler and a half in from the rear and sides of the map to go with mission rules. No chimney smoke versions included in the download. Also, it's easy to tell if a card is still in the correct spot. A note, though; color matching depends on the individual printer, card making methods, and lighting; experiment with print settings for the best match in your gaming area.

    Where they go:




    And no, there's no factories there by default:

    Very nice! I love the way they blend into the mat. Clever.

    They look beautiful!
    An alternative for lazy people, what about just printing a red dot on a transparent card? Somewhere in the files I have seen such generic cards.

    While that would work, note that there's actually no factories at all in those locations on the mat - they were photoshopped in using as a source various small bits of building graphics scanned from the mat - see the last screenshot. You'd be bombing what looks to be a house and the edge of a few tiny industrial-ish buildings.

    Great job Brasel, the crosshairs really make them stand out, better than the official cards

    Unless I am missing something, the left factory card in the file downloads does not have a red center dot or crosshairs.
    So how many books are in your personal library?

    The files in the download don't match up with what I thought should be there.

    You're right, somehow that layer was deselected and that got missed. Download is fixed now, red dot and crosshairs are present on the left factory in the current download.
