    Interesting, I did not notice that. Still not much I can do until it's published online in a PDF or similar.

    As Nonoscreen is always on ( is it really there could be my fault) I'm not sure why it would need a marker. Mimetism or ODD has no marker too
    As its around 2 years ago. I need to thank you for your tool once more. Its great keeping the cost of entry low for new players, and very flexible for all of us

    What some people in my meta has done is glue the Warsenal Nanoscreen markers directly on the base of models who has them, now that they are no longer directional. Should be one of the easier things to make a vector graphic of as well (says someone who is terrible at graphics design)

    As far as I can tell, the troop where it makes a difference is the Nexus Operative, where there are two profiles with Nanoscreen and four without.

    I think the excuse for Nanoscreen having a marker is the same for tinbots having a marker--it's a choice between having a marker or trying to depict the equipment on the model. And they decided they wanted to be able to do that sort of thing in 2nd edition, and stuck with it when N3 came out.

    In 2e you only got cover if the marker was physically obstructing the attacker’s view, just like regular cover. The 3e rule is much easier to play and makes the marker semi-optional. I do like to use them, though, as it makes it easier for both players to remember what’s going on. (I have a set of the refractive ones from Warsenal).

    If they add these to a published PDF, I will happily incorporate them into my tool.

    As far as 2e/3e conversions go, my favorite is Atalanta’s spotbot which required LoF turning into a tinbot that just grants a passive bonus.

    It can be burnt off like camo. Once burnt it's gone. Just like Tinbots can be hacked due to Comms Equipment.

    and there IS a "burned" token to reflect the losing of this effect status.

    In theory tinbots, nanoscreens, and any camo state only need to be marked when lost to attacks. Disconnected and burnt tokens going down. But I'd kinda prefer at least a marker to remind me :stuck_out_tongue:

    Being Burnt or Disabled only adds another marker for your model to carry around, you're still not technically allowed to remove the Tinbot or Nanoscreen markers, they will just not have an effect unless you get an Engineer to remove the Burnt/Disabled trait.

    While I love the token creator, I think the 10 million markers we need to deal with should be lessened in N4!

    I’m trying to see if it’s possible to get a digital copy of the Wildfire token sheet. Also, the ITS marker sheet was updated with the Liaison Officer marker. I’ll try to update that one this weekend.

    Hopefully!

    Though you can reduce your marker count somewhat by using certain double-sided tokens. Camo Markers flip over to mines, Wounds can flip to Unconscious , etc. I used to have a whole list of them that I was going to use, but I'm going to hold off on making all-new double-sided markers till N4 drops.

    That's what they did with the Wildfire tokens, and the upgraded cardboard being amazing, I can totally imagine getting multiples copies of those as the tokens are awesome.

    I did that with some of mine (25mm mdf discs, circle punch and the marker sheet creator). Camo/mine, imm1/imm2, TO/burned, 1w/unconscious, 3w/2w and a few others. Cut my token # down by about a third. Only 1/3 because I'd already got a small collection of the MAS acrylic tokens before I thought of DIY.

    O-12 Liaison Officer is now added. I rearranged a couple other markers as well, so if you can't find them, just keep looking.
