Leader & Overview Factbook Templates

Postby Kirislavia » Tue May 23, 2017 6:23 pm

As I'd received a request for the template I made for my leader's factbook, I figured I might as well post it here so others can use it as well. ^^ For examples of what the finished factbook looks like, see here or here.

Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have; I am always happy to help.

Update: Version 2.0 is finally done. I made it easier to use, cleaner, and generally better, including adding the 'policies', 'for/against', and 'personal trivia' sections. Also, your leader's titles *should* now automatically line break if they're too long, instead of stretching out the sidebar, but this doesn't seem to always be the case. You might have to play around with that a bit.

Code: Select all

Update: I also got a request for my overview factbook template, so I'm posting that here as well. For an example of what this is supposed to look like, see here.

Wherever you find the 'color' tag, I just used a generic blue, but it is intended for you to replace with a color from your national flag. (Don't know how to pull the hex code for a particular colour on your flag? Telegram me and I'll help you with that.)

I'm making mine, and it seems that the profile sidebar is starts out very large, should I start with the text?

Glad you're finding it useful! ^^

Hmm.. It's probably the filler text I put in the signature box that's stretching it out (where it says "URL to signature goes here", etc.); getting rid of that should probably fix the issue.

Also, it sounds like you haven't put anything in the sidebar yet, but if you have... if your leader has a really long title, that will stretch out the sidebar too. You'd need to manually put in line breaks to fix that.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the template! This will be of great use for my factbooks.

Where would you find a place to make the leader’s Signature?

Personally I make them in an image editing program (I use GIMP but you could also use Photoshop or something like that).

But if you don't want to download software to do it, I think a lot of people use this website.

I’m going make a factbook and I am deciding on the template
Anti-communist, btw. Neoreactionary and ultranationalist.
Proud American patriot. I support the President and his troops.
Called a racist, fascist, and other lies for being a nation loving rightist.
Venezuela is a failure and progressivism will destroy every nation.
Refuse socialism! Cultural Marxism is invading! The crisis is real!
Fake news and liberal bias propaganda belongs in trash can.
Capitalism is the best system and liberal democracy has failed.
