I have something I’d like to accomplish and I’m not sure it can be done. If it can, could someone provide an example to follow. Here’s what I’d like to do.
I have 3 maps: a main map, a palace and a catacombs map. In playtesting, we’ve found that having a lot of windows to open for various things really clutters things up and we spend half our time moving windows around trying to shuffle things. So, I’m trying make as many things accessible directly from the main map as possible so additional windows don’t need to be opened to get the components necessary. This includes several decks of draw cards.
Setting up these stacks of draw cards on the main map isn’t a problem. However, if a player is in the palace or the catacombs and they must draw a card, they have to go back to the main map to get the card they need.
Is it possible to place a button or token on the palace or catacomb maps to represent the card deck on the main map so that when the player accesses that token, the game gets a card from the appropriate deck and sends it to the current map so the player doesn’t have to go and get it?
Make sure your decks each reside in their own named zones
Add an at start stack to your map with some image like “Draw Card”
Give it an action button trait that is same size as the graphic set to CTRL
D to execute
Add a global key command with CTRL D that fires SHIFT D
Set the filters to CurrentMap = “TheDeckMap(whatever its called)” &&
CurrentZone = “Name of the Zone where the deck is”
Set the GKC to only apply to 1 piece in a deck
Give all the cards a Send to location trait that fires SHIFT D so that they
will go to wherever they need to go when the GKC is executed on the action
If you require multiples on this - just place more corresponding action
buttons and matching send to’s on the cards
You can even duplicate the at start action buttons to multiple windows for
ease of access depending which window a player is in
You should note if you don’t have space on your map windows or don’t like at
start stacks/action buttons you can also do exactly the same using toolbar
buttons in all your windows instead by using a Toolbar GKC
