I do recognize that the subtype "Vehicle" has certain formatting already attached to it. This is my "wish it was this way" take on things.

@ Doom - I'm sorry, but...why? They're functional identical to artifact creatures with 0 power combined with a more complex Crew. I'm all for crazy, mind you, but that crazy shouldn't need to reinvent the wheel.

I'm amused by the idea but a part of me has to question why this post is in template development? Are you asking for template specific to vehicles?

EDIT:
I see now,

@ Imp - I believe it's a branch from this thread, where isaac mentioned he was developing a vehicle template.

@ Isaac - Any plans to release an installer?

@guitar: i conceived it for a group mass mini set thing that never completed. i should probably post all of it as some point, but i figured it was vehicle related here.

@Zephyr - Yeah, admittedly I am really going hard in the paint with that Vehicle design. Idk, I just enjoy looking at something and then saying "well, what if we did it this way??"

@ Doom - Hm, fair enough. I suppose if one was rebooting vehicles, this could be an option.

no problem. I think I'm getting pretty good at this. I'm thinking of developing a Kaladesh Masterpieces template as well if any of you are interested.

@isaac the awesome

I think the Vehicle backgrund looks a bit blurred and the P/T bot too. Also the color on the Vehicle backgrund seems brown, but on the KALADESH spoilers its more orange. I think is should be more like this.

Is this made from a hige quality scan, or will it be updated when they come?
also on colored vehicle, will they be colored by the colorlines, or do the Vehicle backgrund change color?

This is only constructive criticism, as we all wise the have them. And I'm super grateful for your work. A happy smile

The argument of the background frame of the vehicle remaining the same for each color of the vehicle, I will use the example of Pichoro's black border gods back when it came out. He made an entire template made with just the black part of the god frame on all five colors. The background of artifacts remains the same no matter what its color is. Colored enchantments do change. Master of Etherium vs Heliod, God of the Sun

As far as updating the templates goes, I don't have access to an hd scanner however my templating skills using the basic framing is on par. If someone can provide me with better images i'd be happy to help out.

I'm glad someone did this, but why is there a regular M15 style for Take the Crown? What's different compared to the regular style?

OK I don't know if this can be used. I tryed to find some HQ img of vehicles, but the only one I found was in WotC's Spotlight - Vehicles video.

But it was lying down a bit, so I need to tip the picture up. Can this img be used? I don't know if its perfect done, as in GIMP you need to use your eyes and feel your way.

Render

If someone can do it better the orginal img is there too.

@ pichoro. One of the conspiracies have the scroll box in the type and name box. The others do not. One is for conspiracy type and the other is for cards with "draft this card face up" cards.

@Pichoro:

As requested in you thread Link here: http://magicseteditor.sourceforge.net/node/6918?page=8 If the creators on these new templates are OK with it, could they be uploadet to your Template Index (Additional Downloads) as it seems the majority downloads their templates there. And that would make them more available.

(I believe isaac the awesome is working on energy counters too.)

Most of the work is just on gimp a free image editing software
https://www.gimp.org/

I just take an image from a similar template like from the magic-m15-mse.style and I open something like acard.
Then I can use the masks in the same folder and create a new layer over acard with the mask. I can isolate the part that I want to modify like the outer frame of vehicles.
I make a transparency at my target and I place an image of the vehicle frame behind it.

Nice work, though I don't seem to be able to get the energy counters to show up automatically. They don't show up in the symbol menu either, so I have to type E and then select it and Ctrl-M to convert it to a symbol, then write the reminder text manually.

I came to this website for the sole purpose of asking a question:

I don't know how to download/extract the zip file. I clicked the link in the first post to download, then moved the folder to mse/data, then extracted the files. I opened MSE, and... the templates weren't there.

Help?

You have to put the folders that are in the 'Conspiracy Energy Vehicles' folder into your data folder, should be 4 folders with names starting like magic-m15...., copy paste those into the /data and let them replace what's there.

I did all that, the 4 folders are in my data folder, then I opened mse, went to style, and they're still not there. I added a new card, typed "Conspiracy" in the typeline of the regular m15 style, nothing. Then I did the same thing, I typed "Artifact-Vehicle," nothing. I clicked on "format -- symbols," no energy in the menu, and then typed "E" and higlighted+CTRL/M it, still not working.

Any other suggestions? Thanks!

The Vehicles and Conspiracies should be separate styles. I don't know why the energy counters aren't working, though...

They aren't appearing in the styles bar either.

Energy counters are working in base M15 for me, not in M15 Extra. Probably because E is already linked to an E mana symbol. For some reason.

I can see and use the Conspiracy and Vehicle frames.

The Earth Mana for MTG Extra mana is part of the omniverse colors, which m15Extra adds in. Getting in extra will require an update or a self-change of m15extra so one of them uses a different letter.

Nah, because I removed brown mana from my m15 extra. It'll be fine when I add it.

I think the expansion symbol on the conspiracies should be more to the left. And the type line lacks the belt, isn't it?

Is it anyway possible that we can get the Kaladesh Masterpiece templates in the future? Because I love that frame!

90% of the time, I'm wrong. The other 110%, I'm right.

Oh it's not a colored mana symbol, it's an E. Like an X mana symbol. Only an E.
