Token Size

Post by Darelius »

Hello, i have a small probllem with Token sizes.

First, especially for DnD, i need sizes 1x2 spaces, how do i make this?
For example, a horse with 1x2 size and a wagon wirth 2x4 size or something like that.


Second, i want define additional size categories (larger then colossal) but how?

Is there any possibility?

Easiest way is to drop a top-down horse figure on the map then go into the Config panel of Edit Token and zoom in on the Layout panel to get the size right. Then drag it so that the front half of the horse is in the square.

Drop a wagon image on the Object layer. Use shift-drag on the sizing handle to keep the aspect ratio constant and make it the size you want. Then move it to the Token layer.

You can't. You can use the Object layer technique to resize them as big as you like.

Ergh - after some tries oi found a "bad" solution.
Example: Horse (2x1)
The Token has a Size 2x1 and from the "visible Space" it takes 2 squares.
Technically its still one square...
And when you select it, it seems to have 2x2 square (half more to top, half more down).
It "works" but its really awful, so thanks first ;)
