These are all great ideas. I've never voted for anything here but I'm guessing "+1" is a vote? Do I get a vote if I'm using the free version? I would love to be able to use the status icons to indicate things like flight/climb height, or have confusion ticking down as turns pass (I usually lose count). We have spent a lot of time guessing what some of the current icons are for and have, more or less randomly, assigned a status to the ones we use just to keep the game going.

Wiki instructions for Suggestions Forum Voting, <a href="https://wiki.roll20.net/Forum_Voting" rel="nofollow">https://wiki.roll20.net/Forum_Voting</a> For indicating flight/height, in the current status-icon system, try using the Number-Over method. &nbsp;You can put digits 1-9 over one of the status icons such as, for example, a Blue Circle with the number "3" on it to indicate flying at 30 feet, or 3rd flight of stairs.

+1 I would love to see this implimented
1483942533
Me too.
+1 This is a great idea.&nbsp; Also another opportunity for micro-purchases...
I would still love to be able to assign text to them so when you mouse over them or click on the icon a tool tip appears..

Also being able to add a number higher that 9 on them would be pretty keen
+1
+1 Absolutely love this idea
I was about to make this suggestion myself.&nbsp; At the very least, the selection of tokens could be expanded upon greatly, if custom options aren't possible.&nbsp; Also, one thing I think would be great would to be able to mark a status icon with a value greater than 9.&nbsp; I run a Pathfinder campaign and I use the colored dots to indicate energy resistance of some kind.&nbsp; It would be great to have higher values in them so I could accurately mark said resistance at 10, 15, 20, 25 and so on, as needed.&nbsp; I'm loving the changes that you guys are rolling out so far and I would be ecstatic at having a custom option for status markers!&nbsp; Thanks so much!

I would appreciate this as well. Having a hard time picking icons that make sense for common status effects.

I'm all for this on the condtion it is implemented as as free account feature.

+1 The current set of status icons seem to contain a whole lot of stuff I'll never use and to be missing what I'd consider pretty basic things.
I think we all would like to see options here. Possibly even something like bundles by game system, along with API methods for community-driven token status creation. Considering the SRD/compendium integration with D&D 5E and Pathfinder, this ought to get queued up for those systems soon. Pretty please? +1

I've recently updated my Custom Status Markers API script. <a href="https://app.roll20.net/forum/post/5008114/script-c" rel="nofollow">https://app.roll20.net/forum/post/5008114/script-c</a>... If there are other new features ya'll are looking for, I can see about implementing them in (if it is possible with the API).
common status ailments at least for d&d 3.5, pathfinder and 5e are more or less the same and there are about 9 main ones i think

If there are other new features ya'll are looking for, I can see about implementing them in (if it is possible with the API). I'd still like a direct method to insert/remove status markers. That said, I've played with your Custom Status Markers 3.0 API, and I found it to be quite workable. Thanks for putting it together, sir! Your interface in the chat window allows for "normalization" of status markers, which is quite handy.

We intend to get to this, but aren't certain of a timeline.

As an aside, this would be an interesting thing for marketplace creators to be able to sell as add ons
Any updates on this?

The Roll20 team has researched a system for custom status icons. This feature is dependent on further development on the character sheet system, and work on the way the tabletop is rendered in the browser. These updates may be released together, but it is more likely you'll see the other updates before custom icons are released. We expect the custom icons update to include uploading and managing your own icons, and creating sets of icons that can be assigned to one or more games.

The current release schedule is delivering updates to the systems that these status icons will rely on. The My Audio management tool that is being released this week uses the user interface we have planned for managing custom status icon sets. As we chip away at the lingering issues with Charactermancer Level Up, we will be able to schedule this enhancement later in the year.

If this is in development, how is it that there are marketplace sellers with "custom status icons" listed for sale?

Chris S. said: If this is in development, how is it that there are marketplace sellers with "custom status icons" listed for sale? To be specific, this is not yet in development. This Suggestion is Obstructed . But you question still stands. Marketplace Creators have been creating content for use like any other image on the VTT. Specifically, what we want to build for this request is a specific system that would let Game Owners create a set of Status Icons to use with the status icon menu in the VTT.

Chris S. said: If this is in development, how is it that there are marketplace sellers with "custom status icons" listed for sale? There is an API script that hacks custom status icons into place near tokens. It does not replace the existing ones so far as I know, just a method of attaching a graphic tag to a token. The offerings on the marketplace could use that. In fact, this one is by the author of the script in question.

Our organization and portability interface continues to be overhauled with enhancements to the VTT from Get a New Look update , as well My Audio the early-released part of the Bring Your Own Beat update. The latter brings an important piece to making Custom Status Icons possible. Look for and expected timeline to be announced towards Summer 2019.

The Bring Your Own Beat update was added to the Development Server &nbsp;(Pro link) yesterday for testing. This includes a new way to manage, organize, and use assets across games. Audio files and Playlists can be created in game or with the manage audio modal. We expect that there will also be a tool that exists outside of the Virtual Table Top to upload audio files, create and manage Playlists, and copy them into your games. This same pattern is what we expect to use to manage libraries of custom status icons. Anyone with a Pro subscription, please take a look at the new tools and let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

Great idea. +1 Too many existing status icons and without any tool tips on what they are meant to be, I can't make out what they are supposed to be, other than the Net (entangled?) and the one that looks like a burka I use for blinded. Please implement this with tool tips!

Our most recent update, Bring Your Own Beat , is live and available to all users. As mentioned in my last note, we implemented new tool that we expect to use with Custom Status Icons. Manage Audio is a tool we've created to help create, organize, and move assets between games. We thought about Playlists in much the same way we've been thinking about Status Icons - there will be groups that make sense in particular games. Like importing a playlist into a game, we are plan on using similar functionality to make Status Icons manageable through an external tool. I'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions on the Manage Audio tool, as well as how it might work with Custom Status Icons.
