Hey,

first of all: thanks for the great builder!

I have a suggestion that would really help me as a non-English-player. In our country not all sets are available yet and only published packs are legal for tourneys. In the command card section, there is a hint below each card which pack contains the specific card.

It would be very useful, if this hint would also be available below the deployment cards!

Thank you!

I just added the cards for the latest three figure packs. The builder should have everything released so far. jeemusu will have to update the filters with a code change.

Things are a bit hectic right now, but I will update the filters for the new expansions and chuck the codebase on github in the next day or two. For those who are interested, the backend API runs on Lumen (php). The front end is pretty much just jquery spaghetti code. I am halfway through re-writing the entire front-end in reactjs but the move has forced me to put it on the back burner, I plan to finish it up as soon as I'm settled in which should be in the next couple of months.


How is this coming? I'd love to help with the code. With the new figure pack announcements today we're going to be getting a Jedi version of Luke. Might want to add the flavor/title text for cards that have them because we will have both Luke Skywalker: Hero of the Rebellion and Luke Skywalker: The Last of the Jedi

I just noticed the addition to see armies other have created. I like it a lot!

My first thought is I'd like to filter by multiple Deployment Cards (ex. Vader & The Grand Inquisitor) to see all combos of those two.

Also, I enjoy throwing together Deployment groups, but I don't necessarily want to take the time to choose Command Cards. I would love the ability to save a Deployment group alone and not have to select Command cards.

Thanks again for putting this site together!

Firstly, thanx for the great tool, I've been using it for quite a while now.
We would like to have an option to have more then 40pts, we want to experiment with bigger battles, is this possible?

Don't know if it's been mentioned, but the "Vehicle" trait is not under the search feature for deployment cards.

Great tool indeed ...
I wish I could mark the expansions that I have and how many copies of them so the database can show only deployment and command cards for the expansions that I previously marked .

That would be a huge plus for me and I believe , for many . I build and print my armies at work so I dont have the deploy cards with me all the time...

Thanks ...

I feel like people should probably stop requesting any further added features until the designer of the app starts working on it again (if that ever even happens). The last response he posted was over 4 months ago, and I'm sure he has enough suggestions to work on for now!

I for one hope that work continues on this team builder, as it's widely acknowledged as a great resource. Plus, the Internet already has enough projects that the designer worked on up until a certain point and then abandoned, so I'm hoping that ia-armies.com does not become yet another casualty.

I hesitate to mention a competitor's site, especially since I don't feel it's truly ready (still kind of a beta feel, basic functionality exists, but entirely polished), but as an alternative you could use http://www.jediwars.com

I think it's only missing the last wave. I'll see about adding that today...

great work on the site. just getting into skirmish and this has been a great way for me to play around w ideas without breaking out my actual game and figuring out if there's any added packs i should buy.


1- i see command cards for wave 7, but dont see the filter for it on the drop down. wasnt sure if that was still on your to do list or if it just slipped

2- would be helpful if for each of the saved armies, there was a list of all the packs required to build that list (at least for the command cards). I've tried to use some of the saved lists based on the deployment cards used, but then quickly found many of those lists had command cards that came from packs where the corresponding character wasnt included.

3- any plans to add some kind of identifier to skirmish upgrade cards to know which set/pack theyre found in?

4- any thoughts on allowing users to upload/download a saved vassal file?

The website is working again and including all the latest deployment cards as far as I can tell.

I'm not the maintainer of the app, but jeemusu has given me access to the database. I have access to add new cards and to update existing cards - I don't have access to any of the code.

Unfortunately this is in the code right now - jeemusu has to update this. I think it would be relatively simple to make this so it's based on what sets are in the DB (so once a new set is added to the DB, the drop-down is updated as well) but this requires additional development.

Sounds like a good idea to me.

There doesn't seem to be a field in the database for this yet, but I'm sure it could be added at some point.

I've actually looked into this some. To be able to create a file that could be imported into the Vassal module would take quite a bit of knowledge of how things are set up in Vassal. It's likely doable, but perhaps it would take some sort of ia-armies to Vassal module mapping (additional development of course and perhaps some coordination with the Vassal module developer(s)).

One (hopefully) minor feature I'd like to see is making the neutral deployment cards explicit, ie -

* Add a filter for "Neutral" into the Faction drop-down.
* Add an icon for "Neutral" so they line up nicely with the other cards

Thanks.

Hi, this is a great tool. Thanks for making it. Is there a way to edit saved lists? Unless I'm missing something once a list is saved there is no way to make any changes to it.

Thanks for all the hard work you do to maintain this thing. My brother in law and I spend hours on the site. Are you able to add the new cards for Jabba's realm and the recent expansions? They come out tomorrow and I'm super pumped to get to some hardcore list building on the site. Thanks?

I have updated the database with the cards shown in the previews for Jabba's realm and the figure packs. There may be a few unspoiled cards that are not in the builder yet. I won't be picking up the new stuff until next week, so let me know if I'm missing anything.

I noticed after the Jabba's Realm release, that Vinto's skirmish card has a small error. Her first skill currently reads surge: + 1 Weaken. From her card, it should be surge: +1 damage, Weaken.

Such a great tool!

Slight spelling mistake... the HK Assassin Droids (regular and elite) are in there as "Assasin" droids.
