I've been working with some layout options for the book. So far, a landscape orientation seems to be best for it. Click on the pictures for a larger view.

Looks darn good to me. Very Happy Will we have a separate layout/template for support vehicles, or will we fit it as much as possible to the HM:Vee template?

For simplicities sake, and the lack of a dedicated .txt template (darn HM Map), I'm going to modify the Vee template as much as possible. It'll keep it somewhat consistant. Give me a few minutes and I'll see what I can whip up.

Here's a quick smaple using the Land Train from the Vehicle Annex. (It had all the info, so no extra typing for Discord right now. Very Happy)





We can alter it to better suit our needs. Any input is welcome as nothing is set in stone. (Or burned on a CD/R.) #Silly

Looks great to me!

If we get stuff without artwork, are we going to see if any BTech fans can draw them up? Or do we just go without artwork?

I'd like to suggest Culverin as an idea for somebody who could do some good stuff. Smile

Culverin may/may not be available. My suggestion to Rommel Twee for HMP:DP works here, too. Let's show some solid progress on about 10 designs (i.e., get them to the final stage, a mini-TRO if you will) and show him what else we want to add. He'll then see its a serious endeavor and might want to be a apart of it.
