    It looks like those links broke! Fortunately, you can find those resources via this link now. ^.^

    Hi @ImpSpiritGuide . Thanks for your work! I'm looking for a good Pokémon TCG Card Maker since a long time (heh I know Photoshop does exist, but I just can't learn it only to make cards!). I remember spending time waiting for some card makers, like Aschefield's one, but they were discontinued. I used to use Deckromancy's one (that was decent) but the site is now dead. I'm currently trying MSE, which I totally didn't know, with your resources. And it looks great! I'm still not able to use it properly but I guess I have to read that very long PDF. The program looks complicated but it also looks complete. If you wish, I can give you some feedback about stuff, as soon as I learn how to use it all!

    Oh I forgot that Metagross made a variety of custom type blanks! If you search his DeviantArt page @SneaselGenesis , you should find more custom type blanks for the ex-era, such as Ice and Bug. Keep in mind that this does not use the official [Y]-type symbol. You might like to replace the unofficial symbol with the official one designed by CMP [link], it is in roughly the same style as other ex-era Energy symbols.

    What did you use to extract them? For some reason, the native windows unzipper doesn't work with that font pack, you have to use a free program like 7-Zip, which is a quite useful upgrade in itself.

    I'm not sure how useful this will be, but here's something I added to the resources group a week ago: a retro-style texture editor (mainly for unofficial types).

    I was inspired to make this PSD after realizing that Fire and Psychic shared the same base texture. In theory, this should be more versatile than recoloring official textures (for example, you can add textures/patterns under the clouds; think Link monsters from YGO) and give you more control over the exact colors. I may add other texture styles later but, until then, you can try emulating those with a Spatter effect.

    Notes and Tips:
    * Cloud Hue and Cloud Color layers (optional) should use the same color, which should be something close to the Base Color (like blues or pinks for purples).
    * Opacity and blending mode of the Shadows layer may need adjusting on some base colors.
    * You can make the clouds look a bit more vibrant by upping the opacity of the Optional layer under Cloud Color to 25% (I don't recommend exceeding that).
    * For darker textures that would have white text, you can either decrease the opacity of the Clouds layer or change its blending mode to Multiply and hide the Shadows layer.

    You might be able to recreate some of the official textures with this, but I suggest doing this only for custom blanks since they may not turn out perfectly. Maybe you could do something similar to Sun & Moon where every Type shares the same base texture? EDIT: I did the latter here!
