Command Center is a free online Warhammer 40K army builder. You can join for free, check it out, and start building your 40K rosters right away.
You will be able to share your rosters with the community here, and get feedback on your lists. There is also a feature called Battle Tome where you can keep track of all the 40K games you play.
After a few weeks of closed testing, I’m ready to put it out there to everyone to try, the mobile friendly version of Command Center. To get access is easy. Just go here: http://cmdctr.net/roster-beta/ I will be working on redoing the tutorials on the site to cover the new version. Meanwhile, here’s a few notes you should be aware of. Notes & Updates Make sure you clear your browser cache. I have updated a lot of supporting files that comprise the mobile version, and you Continue reading →
On Tuesday I opened up the beta testing for the mobile friendly version of Command Center to the patrons. If you’re a patron, be sure you check your email for the information I sent out, or check Patreon for my post there on beta testing. I predict that in the next week or two I will have the updates for Command Center more fine-tuned, and ready for the rest of you to jump in and help beta test. I’m really happy with the progress I’ve Continue reading →
I’m very happy to say that the mobile friendly version of Command Center is nearly ready! All of the programming is done except for the Print View and PDF features. The design portion of things is just as close as well. I’ll likely spend more time fine-tuning things there though. However, the mobile friendly element – the point of this, is in place. It isn’t looking half bad either 😉 I could have the beta ready this week, however I’m going to sit on it Continue reading →
I’m very happy to say that things are progressing well with the update for Command Center. I had a few early hurdles, but I got those tackled. It’s relatively smooth sailing from here…I hope. There is still a lot of work to do. Most of what remains is just time-consuming stuff, nothing overly complicated. Once I get the core code nailed down, I will be moving on to the design elements. I’m aiming to have the updated roster be completely usable by any device. I Continue reading →
Progress continues on the redesign to make Command Center mobile friendly. Two steps forward, one step back, so typical programming. In this process I will be changing stuff around; which I guess is pretty obvious, but I mean more than just aesthetics. Nothing is set in stone yet, but here’s what I’ve been thinking, and I’d love feedback before I commit these changes. 1) Units will be grouped together. Currently, when you add a unit you get a line-item. If you’re creating a squad: Marines, Continue reading →
I’ve finally begun work on making Command Center mobile friendly. The framework is going into place, and a prototype is underway. I would show you the prototype now, but it’s very crude at this point. I’m still hammering through a few concepts as well, and haven’t fully decided which route I want to go. The trick is to make something that looks good on both mobile devices and desktops. I don’t have the time to create a mobile specific version, wish I did, so we’ll Continue reading →
This is something I’ve thought about for a long time, and it was finally time to pull the trigger. It’s all explained on the Patreon page, but in short, running Command Center costs me money to pay for the server. I would love to keep Command Center free, and the best way I can think to do that is by utilizing Patreon. So, if you’re interested in pledging to help keep Command Center free, please check out the Patreon page I’ve setup.
I’ve decided that I will attempt to make the roster building more mobile friendly, even though nobody responded to the earlier article 🙁 This process will not be fast, so I won’t attempt to give any sort of timeline. The goal is simple though, to allow you all to build rosters while using smaller mobile devices, like phones. Right now it’s pretty much impossible to do with a phone. Something that may likely have to happen, however, is to alter how the roster building works Continue reading →
I run a blog, Creative Twilight. It’s a Warhammer 40K focused blog, mostly covering the hobby, as well as a lot of battle reports. I am always looking for new authors to join the blog, and I wanted to reach out here to anyone who may be interested. Though the blog has a strong 40K focus, I would love to branch it out into other games, whether that’s Warmachine/Hordes, Malifaux, X-Wing, it doesn’t matter. I would also gladly take on authors who want to blog Continue reading →
I have thought a lot about Command Center and its lack of mobile friendliness for years now. The site itself works well enough on a mobile device, but trying to work with rosters is a whole other matter. Though I’ve often considered working on that, I would always come back to the same question, how many people do, or would, work on rosters if it was mobile friendly? I can only speak for myself. I only access a roster from my phone to view it Continue reading →
On Dec. 10th I updated WordPress to version 4.4. WordPress is the platform this site runs off. Apparently WordPress had some undocumented changes to how it handles database insert and updates, in turn causing a lot of things here to not function correctly. I have since updated the database to work within these new restrictions, and in theory things should be back to normal. However, if you notice any sort of odd behavior with your account, rosters, your games, or anything, then PLEASE let me Continue reading →
I hope. I just noticed this morning that there were some site layout issues. Some items were not loading properly and in turn causing some very ugly pages. I have adjusted the caching and seemed to have figured out the problem, however if you continue to notice some pages loading oddly then please let me know. It’s a balancing act to get caching (speed improvements), to work without blowing out the design.
