I have been going nuts with Skwyre, so much so the local squirrels are giving me sour looks.
It is possible to upload backgrounds. I have uploaded one of the nebula patterns from Astrosynthesis and used it as a background. With some tokens for space ships etc. it works really well. This might be interesting for Star Wars Armada and X-Wing players.
Creating tokens is a labor intensive task. I have found a wealth of fantasy tokens in the NBOS exchange. I haven't looked for any Steampunk-style tokens for a possible game of GASLIGHT yet.
I am still trying to finding the optimal size (file size) for maps for miniatures. This is mainly due to the one negative issue I have seen lately:
UPLOADING TAKES FOREVER!!!
When I upload a file bigger than a few K-bytes, like tokens, take several minutes to appear after they have been uploaded.
With maps, which are sometimes 2-3 M-bytes, it takes hours for the files to upload, and I have to turn Skwyre off and on again to see any change.
This seems to happen across platforms, and whether I have one iteration up or several. With Skwyre on my Desktop, laptop and tablet, I can have three iterations on at once, although when uploading I have only one platform on at a time.
