Is there anywhere I can request someone to draw a uniform for my nation's infantry, officers, pilots, navy and elite? I do have a picture in my head and a description of what I want, and am open to changes and talks on said design, but I can't draw myself since for one I'm using a phone, and two, I'm not good at it anyway... Any thread I could join or make that'll allow me to request someone to help design a uniform?

Picture this; After years of destabilisation and preached ideas of states rights after the American Civil War, the USA finally collapses and in its' place are many states, each with their own power and culture, albeit with steampunk technologies with modern commodities such as television and internet. One of these is the Federal Republic of Texas; being a major power whilst holding on to its' Wild West roots.

I need help with my military factbook. I already have a few guns going on PMG, but I'm struggling with trying to get a look and feel for vehicles and uniforms.

Does anyone check this thread for new posts except me?

Wish I could help, but if your going too use other people's work, state that their not yours or give credit.
"Believe you can and your halfway there." -Theodore Roosevelt

"Jesus was the first socialist, the first to seek a better life for mankind" -Mikhail Gorbachev.

I'm just a simple man trying to make a country on the internet. And yes I do not use NS stats.

The Democratic Socialist Republic of Karevka (DSRK) is supposed to be a stand-in Soviet Union, although with major differences like the allowance of private business (But the state is a partial owner) or the fact that they allow LGBT marriage. Kind of alternate history or alternate universe I guess.

Well, I'd advise you to think about the nation you're based on. Then look up related keywords on Google. Say you're based on Rome. Just search "futuristic Roman infantry" or so. If a videogame has done what you're trying to do, all the better. Knowing whether your military is more on the powerhouse or subversive side also helps.

Question on 'Leader' Images

Postby Soviet Tankistan » Fri Jun 07, 2019 6:46 am

I've noticed most people have images of the leader but I don't have a source to put one up. Can someone help? Any recommendations?

by source do you mean image host? or do yo mean somewhere to find pictures?

If you mean image host, I and a lot of others, use Imgur.com (it's free and super easy to use)
If you are talking about where to find pictures, it really depends on what type of picture you want.
EG: because my flag is almost identical in color to the Hungarian flag, I tend to just google "Hungarian Politicians" and scroll for a while until I see what I want. Pro tip, always remember the name of the person you use incase you ever need to find more pictures of them, ie at international summits or olympic games ect.
If you have access to a stock photo library, there will be plenty you can use from there.

Which stock photo sources are good and free?

The best option is to try and make your own image, add your personality.

if you do go for a stock image, please don't make your ruler a young 20 something photo model that looks like he just got done doing a concert for screaming 14 year olds, I see that too often in factbooks.

The leader's age is 44, or course I would avoid someone in their twenties. I don't know how I would make my own image as I am bad at drawing and computer art.

Yea, using celebrities is a good idea. If you had, for any reason at all, to use the photo of someone in their twenties for a person much older, use "the magic of makeup and/or plastic surgery" as an excuse. <insert your leader's species here> physiology is also as good as an excuse.

Anyways, I have problems of my own too. Apparently, NS has something against the third tone, as evidenced by its weird placement in factbooks when viewed on PC (check out the pinyin for "五神龙" in "Elder Dragons" under "Dragons" in my creatures factbook). It looks perfectly fine on mobile though, could anyone help me with this? Thanks.

Given this is a roleplaying board dedicated to factbooks, it'd depend on what you mean by "campaign." But just "advertising" pretty much anything as a thread would likely constitute spam. You can post your factbook/dispatches asking for assistance and review, sure, though; you can also link them in your signature.

This post isn't totally just to remind people that Our Most Benevolent [v] hath gifted us dispatch macroes for use on gameside factbooks:
[violet] wrote:Actually yes! Still in development, but if you like you can have a play. Dispatches support tags in the format "[data:TAG]", where TAG is one of the keywords below.

They don't work in preview mode at the moment, only in published dispatches.

Tags:

population
animal
currency
capital
faith
region
influence
gdp
tax
income
census-score-N
census-rank-N
census-regionrank-N

With the last three, the N should be replaced with a census ID number, e.g. 3 for population.


For example: "[data:population]" in a dispatch will make your population appear, updating daily. "[data:animal]" will list your animal. Etc.
