‘City Builder’ Platinum Edition Update #50: Updated Files Available!

Michael O. Varhola

We hope you have been enjoying the complete Platinum Edition of Skirmisher Publishing's City Builder: A Guide to Designing Communities since we released the full PDF version of it last week! We have been staying busy at our end taking this project to the next level and wanted to update you on the things we have accomplished since then.

* We have just released at DriveThruRPG an updated version of City Builder with the file name “City_Builder(03-05-2020)”.

     ++ We have enabled the Layers feature of this PDF so that readers who want to view the publication without any background can do so.

     ++ We have upgraded or replaced a dozen images throughout the book with an eye to improving its overall appearance and ensuring that they all meet the standards needed to make a print version of this publication available.

* We have also created a separate, reduced-size version of the book for readers whose devices might have trouble easily displaying the largest, highest-quality version of the book, it has the file name “City_Builder_Reduced(03-05-2020)”.

* As of today we have also started working on the special files that we will need to submit to DriveThruRPG in order to create the print version of City Builder. This is somewhat of an open-ended process that will involve us reviewing print proofs of the book, responding to feedback from DriveThruRPG and troubleshooting any potential issues, etc. Our guess is that this process will probably take about three weeks but we will let you know if that changes (and, suffice it to say, not keep it a secret once the print version of the book is available).

Thanks! We very much hope you are enjoying City Builder, are getting the most out of all the hard work we have put into it, and are pleased with our most recent updates to it. We would love to hear about things in it you particularly like or have found to be especially useful and how you are drawing upon it in the creation of your settings, scenarios, and places.
