Foundry Asset Sharing
 
Hi everyone,

If you aren't aware of it, Dave and others at Wiki UGC have been working on a way that authors can share props, maps, and even npc characters. Because we don't have an import/export tool that makes this easy, we've been relying on a more complicated way to do this.

Before reading further, please check out some of the assets that have already been posted:

http://starbaseugc.com/wiki/index.php/Asset_Sharing

How it works: An author can export a map's relevant x, y, z and rot coordinates (using a newer version of Pendra's tool) and then copy and paste all of it into OpenWord in order to export it as a pdf. Then, you can post screenshots, the pdf, etc. at the Wiki.

The bad: If people want to recreate your city from the pdf table, then he/she still has to load each object one by one and then manually edit the x, y, and z, along with the rot. degrees.

It's time-consuming, but considering we can recreate a city in 20 minutes when it probably took the original author many, if not a dozen, hours to make the city, then it's very beneficial.

There is also a tutorial on how we're doing all of it here:

Please help us by adding your cities, detailed maps, or even favorite npcs to the wiki so that other authors can recreate the sets and characters.

Thanks!

Yeah we already use some of that, on the asset sharing page of the wiki
