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.

StratSketch Update 2.7

Our first post-release update will address a few new features that have been commonly asked for! Yes, this update is 2.7 instead of 2.6, there are reasons for this because of compatibility between testing versions and an issue with our update system.

  • Added grid numbers/letters on the map and inside sector pings.
  • The map can now be zoomed in with the scrollwheel up to 2x.
  • When zoomed in, maps are now 1024x1024 instead of 512x512, for better quality.
  • A few minor bugs have been fixed.
