You can describe your heroic weapon on the statcard by giving the weapon a custom name and then adding a custom speciality/equipment with the same name describing how the weapon is special.

I'm just gonna say this is awesome, thank you for this.

If I were to make one suggestion, it would be the option to add a faction flag somewhere on the card.

You mean as a watermark like on theses statcards?:

I didn't even think of that, that's sweet. I was thinking of a little rectangle, maybe next to the title.

I like the watermark idea more. Colour-coding your cards will make them distinctive enough, so I don't think an explicit flag is necessary.

Update:
+ add templates for common (minifig) specialities in the "Custom Specialities / Equipment" section
+ damage table: write text in red in columns in which there is enough size damage that the armor level is reduced and/or not all weapons can be powered
+ the titles for "Specialities, Size, Armor, Move, Skill" in the statcard are written in the same font as everything else on the statcard now

I found another "bug," sort of - when you give a creation Armor Plating, it disables Flight movement. Which is correct in most cases, since aerial type flight is disabled, but spaceflight type flight should still be legal (say, for Phalek antigravity EL-E-VATE technology, just for random example).

Maybe make flight and antigravity different movement types? Just a thought.

spaceflight type flight should still be legal

True. Though I wonder, why is spaceflight for simplicity sake not a standard movement? After all, in a space battle, there are only space ships, so it doesn't really make any difference. Currently, for my convenience sake, I put spaceflight into the standard movement category on that statcard. That does of course not handle the case of Phaleks, antigrav tanks, and stuff like this.

In that case, why not allow armor plating on flying creations as well? Why the limitation? Realism? Balancing?

Realism-wise,... well :sparta:
Why not trust the MOC creator that his creation will make sense? A note in the rule book that flying objects probably won't have armor plating unless they are in space or they have some magical propulsion system to discard realism here (antigrav), should suffice, no?

Balancing-wise, the constructor already pays double the movement points, so armored flying objects will probably be quite slow (or super-expensive).

Awesome work. I use it regularly. Very appreciated.

It's funny that the Statcard Generator for the 2010 rules came in 2014, way before the 2010 rules were even completed.

Really cool. However, there's a few things that could be better:
-It seems the watermark feature is bugged, as it doesn't work (at least, not on my pc).
-although the color feature is working, you could/should put a list of common colors, like red, blue, orange, green,... with their hex values, simply to make it more user friendly.
-weapons that do custom amounts of damage (like a gun that does 2d10 or a machine gun that does 1d8)
-a feature so you can disable the weapon size at the end of weapon's name. (ex: "Gun" instead of "Gun II")

Furthermore, do you think it would be possible to do the same thing for minifigs, so you can generate stats for you elite troopers and other special characters with more ease.

Hats off to you, sir - a marvelous contribution to our beloved hobby. :tiger: Thank you.

Feedback/Suggestions:

Ability to zoom out images? (especially useful for statting official figures/sets and using pics from the internet). Or better yet, a "fit image to frame" button that auto-sizes it for us.

Ability to set font size (especially into smaller sizes for those of us who attempt to write the next great sci-fi novel in our statcards). Or again, just a "cram it into the statcard" autoshrink button.

Would it be possible to get this in mobile app form?

Bugs:
I've noticed at times the calculations of size-to-power break down (my Size 21" starship kept saying Power: 21). Closing and re-opening the page usually fixes this, but I thought I'd let you know anyway.

Some pictures end up smudging/blurring when moved around, though that may be the fault of the image source (idk).
