Custom token

Custom Tokens are similar to Custom Tiles, in that they can be used to make tile/token-like game objects. The difference is that Custom Tokens are able to "cut out" the transparency of an image to make a token with a customized shape.

Importing Custom Token

In-game, navigate to the top of your screen and select Objects > Components > Custom > Custom Token.

Tile Example

Token Tinting

When you use the in-game object tinting feature on a custom token, it tints the whole token, including the image.

Tips

  • Images that have a transparency in the middle (like a donut) will not cut out the transparency in the middle of the image.
  • If you are having trouble with the transparency not getting cut out properly, try to add a small transparent border around the entire image. It helps.
  • Custom Tiles load faster than Custom Tokens. If you can use a custom tile instead, it is almost always preferable.
