I have plans to work on one, complete with a companion script. Really just need the rules and/or a sample of the sheets to get started.

Heh, I'm really just using you guys as guinea pigs for my companion script ideas and to steal all the know how on how to write a sheet ;) Tom said: Man is it GEN CON yet!! Wish I was going :(

Lots of interest for this game. I have people asking on both Paizo's message boards and well as the facebook group thats popped up. Really looking forward to running my own campaign as well on here as I already run a Pathfinder campaign. Can't wait to see what turns up on Roll20 for support the game looks like its going to do very well.

Scott posted he would so once we get the game on Aug 17th then he can start cracking on with it, and he may well post here again, hopefully on any updates. Tom

Do you have an estimate as to how long it will take to make a sheet?

Cool. I found someone on Reddit who made a fillable PDF, if it would help your work. https://www.reddit.com/r/starfinder_rpg/comments/6sk4xx/interactive_character_sheet_pdf/dlde80y/

Thank you in advance for working on this!
Hey Scott, when you do get a working version out, I'd be happy to help you beta test it!

Also, if you haven't subscribed or pre-ordered on Paizo, the PDF is finally available for download today for Starfinder for anyone interested in checking out the rules. Download is a bit slow since it's day 1 of gencon, but excited to check it out and see the reception. I have art in the works for it.
1502988406
I would happily beta test for you just PM me. I will be starting a campaign and me and my players will happily be guinea pigs for you. Thank you so much for working on this! As my core gaming group has gotten older we have all moved around the US and this is the only way we can still connect and game together. Been a long time fan of Roll20 and Pathfinder and we are eager to jump into Starfinder together as well.

PDF was actually available a week ago for some subscribers (me among them :) )

I am also happy to help beta test it, looking at running the adventure path with a couple of friends very soon.

If you need another beta tester I'd be more than happy to help out, I appreciate all the work you're putting into this

Thanks for creating the sheet, I really appreciate it
Just hopped on to say thanks for what you do and I can't wait to get my Starfinder game going! (I would also beta test things if you need people, but I'm sure you have plenty)
1503178242
Hey, Scott. I'm greatful that you're getting started on this so early! Was wondering though if you were planning on having the sheet include a starship page as well? Or if that will possibly be in a later version?

There will be a PC, an NPC, and a starship display option. I haven't decided yet if there will be separate NPC/PC starship pages as I'm still working my way through the rules and am focusing on the PC section atm as I'm working to get the PC section up and running first.
1503194271
Thanks for the info, and glad you have the order of things planned out.
1503206747
Thanks for doin' this, looking forward to running Starfinder games.

I just got the pdf, and I'm really hoping to try and play a little myself before I GM it! Either way, I'll need a character sheet, so another kudos to you for working on this!

Edited 1503337544
My group is very interested in a Starfinder campaign as well, and I would like to start soonish. If you need more playtesters for the sheets, let me know! Also, thank you for putting in the time to do this!
Thank you for doing this.  If it is not asking too much, do you have an eta yet?  No rush, just wondering.

Please for the love of god make it 100% manual. The auto calculating sheets have become the bane of all my new players. Going from the sheets on roll20 to IRL they are just hopeless and lazy after being used to the auto calculating sheets.  Also it will probably make them easier to make. idk im not a sheet maker don't quote me on that. And please Please please please please. Don't stress yourself with trying to change the layout. It's good as is. seriously.

Sorry, won't be 100% manual. If that's what you want, then I'd recommend just using the attributes/abilities tab. This will be a sheetworker powered sheet, and once the sheet is done, there will be an API companion for it as well.

I should note though, that I'm going for the simpler version of this (think 5e OGL instead of shaped or the pathfinder sheet)

No one wants to use that stupid attributes/abilities tab when there's a character sheet available. I am also in agreement with not using auto-calculating sheetworkers and shit. All they do is make for lazy players and make it harder for GM's to add in homebrewed options.
I am hyped for the sheet./ O am a fan of auto-calculations and such, as my group tends to be fairly low-math and newbiesh. Makes it easier on all of us. So, thank you.

All they do is make for lazy players and make it harder for GM's to add in homebrewed options . I'm hoping that the way I'm doing it will allow homebrew to your heart's content. I should have a screencap of what the main player page will look like later today. I've aimed to make it close to what the physical sheet looks like. There are of course some extra fields as being on the comp allows some stuff that just isn't possible on a hard copy.

The ridiculous stupid ass rule of "one game, one sheet" causes problems like this where the community is split on what they want out of a sheet, but have no recourse other than to make their own sheet and upload it as a custom sheet per campaign instead of just being able to select it like normal.

Ok, here's what the core page for PCs looks like. It still has a few layout issues, but this is the general idea I'm going for. Let me know what all you Starfinder fans think:

Edit: just a personal question why do you change the layouts. Like the default sheet is compact and easy to read. this is kinda large and spaced.. kinda sad about the auto fill but hey beggers can't be choosers.
Love it!

Let me know what all you Starfinder fans think: I would honestly just change this format into the one that is provided in the CRB and online for free. That one is far simpler to understand and doesn't seem all over the place.
