Steam Trading Card support for Universe Sandbox
I figured since Steam Trading Cards is getting more common, widespread and leaving beta a few days time. That it wouldn't be a bad idea to consider adding Universe Sandbox cards to Steam.

We could have the Earth, Sun, Mercury and maybe even an 8-ball as cards to trade with.

Nice idea.

I think so too and it would be a great way to get new players into the game.

Start with all 8 planets.

Solar System badge!

I think it would be interesting if the badges went up in scale. Level one could be Earth, and 2 being the solar system, then the Milky Way, then the local group, then the universe. Something like that.

And I agree, it would be nice to see cards for this game.

And of course, a black hole would be the easiest emoticon to make...

Of course, the cards would need to be celestial objects from the game. And maybe a teapot or monolith...

I like that idea Regan. The scaling concept covers the whole trading ecosystem for the game.

I have my too! XD

These are great suggestions. I'm working the the required artwork now. Feel free to shout out other ideas for the badges or cards.

Awesome!

I think a galaxy collision background would be good, too. And maybe a close up of Saturn showing off the rings.

The nice thing about this is that good choices for cards and such are, pardon the bad pun, astronomical. You could do the 8 planets, but I'd rather see some planets and some really interested stuff from the rest of the universe.

I think a card of Jupiter showing all of the moons would be nice, too.

Sweet!

Awesome to think that we contributed to them. :-)

Agreed! Bring on the cards!!!
DoubleD Jun 28, 2013 @ 6:03pm 
Endless Space has cards now. So make sure the Badge looks different.

Really looking forward to the profile backgrounds!

I think that a card with the Earth being bigger than the Sun would also be a creative picture for a card.
