StratSketch Update 1.3.2

StratSketch 1.3.2 for World of Tanks 9.9 has been released. In this update, many small features have been implemented, and many bugs have been fixed. All of the maps are now in much higher quality.

New Features:

  • Briefing creators or editors can now transfer all users to a new or existing briefing.
  • Briefings can be protected for added security. Protected briefings cannot be copied or favorited.
  • Map screenshots are now in much higher quality.
  • The 0-9 keys can now be used to select tools.

Bug Fixes:

  • All users will no longer see themselves as a different rank when one user's rank changes.
  • Map spawn points and versions have been corrected.
  • The briefing description is no longer hidden behind the map if it is more than two lines.
  • Fixed how StratSketch displays on high DPI screens. (Includes fix for \"broken\" shape and text items.)

As always, if you have any suggestions or comments, check out the StratSketch thread on the World of Tanks forums.

StratSketch Update 1.3.0 - Slideshows!

The latest StratSketch update adds a major and frequently requested feature: Slideshows. You can now add slides to your briefing, as well as create copies of existing slides to create alternate strategies. When presentation mode is enabled, all users will follow along with the presenter to each slide.

Another feature is the color reset button, which will reset your custom colors to their defaults:

There have been a few tweaks to the UI layout, as well as many bug fixes. (An important one in particular being that entities do not randomly duplicate anymore.)

StratSketch Update 2.9

Today I am releasing the StratSketch update for World of Tanks 9.8. I've have added quite a few useful features as well as updated the maps to the latest versions.

Changelog:

  • Added a grayscale color slider.
  • Made multiple tanks count towards the total using the syntax of "#x", which will add # of tanks to the total.
  • Added arrows to the pen tool, as well as "stoppers" to both the line and pen tools. (Indicating the tanks should stop)
  • Added the ability for map owners to kick users from their briefings.
  • Added the ability for maps to be hidden to regular viewers by the map owner and helpers.
  • Implemented an auto-reconnect. If a user becomes disconnected from a (saved) briefing, the client will try to reconnect automatically.
  • Made text a bit easier to read. (Use the note or label styles for best legibility.)
  • Made the select tool auto-select after placing text, making it easier to move it. The textbox is now cleared after placing as well.
  • Fixed a few minor bugs and issues.

StratSketch Update 2.8

The latest update for StratSketch provides a major useful feature that allows it to scale to screen sizes. This means you will no longer have a small map on a large screen, instead you will see it in nearly fullscreen! A new tool, the shape tool has been added, which allows you to create polygonal shapes and regions.

Changelog:

  • Added scaling to make application (nearly) fullscreen on larger monitors.
  • Added Overlord map.
  • Added the shape tool for creating shaded regions.
  • Move chat to the sidebar to allow for a larger map interface.
  • Many bug fixes and enhancements. This update brings a new coordinate system to allow for scaling across devices. All maps must be converted to this new format, and will be automatically. Certain items such as text and icons may not be in their exact positions or sizes, and may need to be moved.
