How to make a Custom Banner

Postby Happy Christian Land » Mon Apr 16, 2018 10:18 pm

So, I just reached the 50 million citizen threshold. I'd like to upload a custom banner, but the thing is, I'm not sure how to make an image fit the 4:1 aspect ratio without ending up weirdly stretched out of shape. Any ideas?

You need to use "crop" rather than "scale".

You just have to wait. Your population increases in a reasonably predictable manner (which averages out to, basically, around 2 billion per year) and when this passes each of the coded thresholds you gain the ability to upload a custom banner.
Also, once you've uploaded one you can change it whenever you want.

Are you using a computer or a mobile device? What I do is try and take a screenshot of the desired image, and then crop it onto Photos. NS allows anything from the Photos app to be a custom banner.
I'd say this nation is about 85-90% representative to my beliefs

About the only difference between my nation and beliefs is that free markets are effective in a select few situations, and the compulsory organ harvesting is kind of screwed up

I'm probably in the minority, but I actually pay more attention to in game stats than to roleplay

It wouldn't matter if he was using a PlayStation 3 running OtherOS because he still can't upload a banner until his nation has 50 million inhabitants
