2024-01-26 (F) Weekly Summary

I used a 30A ESC, a servo tester, and a barrel connector to test the motor. During startup, the ESC would "chirp" by rapidly oscillating voltage on each coil, so I knew they were connected, but the most these coils managed was a slight shaking from a magnet. I am putting this project aside.
(0:09) All the movement the motor could muster

I plan to gamify Granica with the mechanics from my Distorted Mansion card game. I need significant improvements to the gameplay, but I received ideas from some early play-testers. I documented the ideas on a couple of pages to start.
Granica card game concepts

I used Midjourney to generate over eighty high-resolution images of miner ships and characters. I had to prompt for non-caucasion most of the time and I will parry the list down to a dozen when I print.
Generated images

I compiled gameplay rules into a single source, including a card list for alpha testing. Now, I am streamlining the rules for playtesting to improve the valuable ones and eliminate the troublesome ones.
Notes for the game's rules

I asked the AI to generate pictures of cards from a space science ficition game so I could get a bunch of borders for the playing faces. I edited one in GIMP to remove the background, subject in the window, and text. I replaced the words with editable characters. This attempt was to prove the concept.
Blank card face

I edited three borders and kept ample space at the bottom to print rules for each card. Editing took longer on high-resolution images, but I kept the original sizes.
Second round of card borders
