A while ago I started thinking that it would be useful to generate wargame countersheets (or sheets of game cards etc) some templates and data in a textfile. After some thinking and a few nights of coding I think I may soon have created something that does this, implemented as an extension for Inkscape.

Some ugly examples below. The results will be no prettier (or uglier) than the templates used...

With some simple templates like these;


--- and this data:


... running the effect in Inkscape:


...will produce counters like these:


... and back sides as well:


Hopefully this will be useful to someone else as well when it is released.

Thanks! A version not quite ready for widespread distribution can be downloaded here: http://www.lysator.liu.se/~perni/iboardgameexts/iboardgameexts-0.4.zip

For a proper release it will need some more documentation and examples, and most likely some bugfixes.

Pelle, this is an exceptional idea. I will give it a try the next days.

Pelle, thanks for posting this. I'm sure some of the closet game designers amongst us may find this helpful for their own needs!
