Absolutely not frowned upon - I'd actually encourage it. Many people cap their populations at varying levels, often just so that you don't need to rework all your stats all the time but also because, as you say, it's more realistic.

Is there a limit to how many factbooks you can have?

Gameside, yes there is, but I don't know it. It might be 30 or something.

You need to upload it to an image-hosting site first (e.g. imgur) and then put the image link in [img][/img] tags. Keep in mind that the URL usually has to end in .png/.jpg/whatever to work.

Code: Select all
[img]https://imgur.com/BPhTj0F[/img]

So, the above piece of code doesn't work, and I get the message "It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image. Please verify that the URL you entered is correct."

Code: Select all
[img]https://i.imgur.com/BPhTj0F.png[/img]

In contrast, this code here works perfectly, and gives the following image:

Hope that helped!

It is a case of using the (sup)(/sup) tags. Just look below to see how the code works and what the results look like.

Does anyone know of, or have themselves a good format for a character factbook? Preferably one that is similar to most politicians wiki pages where it shows the offices they have held, when they started etc. Something similar to like that of Elizabeth II page, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_II
I've searched for ages but have yet to find one that I like.

I have a question regarding assigning a national leader/religion to my country. I have been a part of NS for many years and I am still yet to figure out how to use this feature. Do I have to wait for an issue to come up that would grant me such an option? Or is there a place in my settings I can go to do such things. As I am aware that my country reaches all qualifications for having these amenities I am unable to take advantage of them!

It comes as an issue, and if you answer it correctly the field in the settings where you can write your nation's leader becomes unlocked. Check your settings in case you already have it, otherwise wait for the issue.

The factbooks influence in something in the game?

Postby Hallandsas » Fri Feb 19, 2016 5:37 am

I am new and i have a question to do, factbooks have any kind of influence in the game, I mean, if I wrote a fact book saying that my nation have started a program to save my national animal that actually says that "Hallandsas's national animal is the Killer whale, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways." it will change?

Thanks

No, the information on your nation's page (created by the game and only based on issues, settings and changes from World Assembly legislation) is totally uninfluenced by what you roleplay or write about it.
