I did a lot of this kind of thing for Battlestar Galactica PBF, and now am happy to play PBF Firefly. One thing that got introduced over there were character banners. After all, avatars change, and what if you're in two games at once (lucky devil!)

Typically, geeklists get used for these things, but I've learned two things at BSG:

1) Geeklists can't be quoted, so anything special on the imageid markup is a mystery to new users.

2) Geeklists can be lost for a while, whereas threads in the PBF forum are right there.
(Okay, in BSG it would be down about 20 pages of PBF game threads, but we could "bump it" to the front)

What follows is one posting for each ship. Each ship has the 11 different banners, one for each Captain as of the release of Blue Sun. I expect I'll add further posts as new releases issue new Captains and new Ships.

Enjoy!

Gerry




April 2017 Update: Generalized the thread to be "PBF Resources" , things you'll want while playing, but don't want to drag out of the box to find.

Please feel free to add your banners after this.

Hey guys, I thought I'd take a stab at making these a bit more shiny. Feel free to use 'em or not, and let me know if you have any suggestions/critiques.

Re: Ship and Captain Banners for PBF play
Nice stuff!

If you don't mind the questions, how did you make them? What colors and effects did you use for the leader names? Matching the cards there is one thing that had eluded me with my card templates.

Re: Ship and Captain Banners for PBF play
These were made from scratch in Photoshop. For the Leader names, I used the following layer styles:
-Gradient Overlay, Linear, #d4dba4 on top, #d1cc7a on bottom
-Stroke, 1 px, Outside, dark green color, 60% Opacity
-Outer Glow, Blend Mode: Lighter Color, Opacity %65, #619e38, Spread 16, Size 7

These would of course need to be adjusted for a full size card template.
As I mentioned in your card printing thread, I would be happy to take a look at your Photoshop template(s), tweak or clean up anything I'm able to, and send it right back to ya!

(Here's a geeklist of some of the templates I've created in the past)

Re: Ship and Captain Banners for PBF play
What happened to our banners?

Some sort of purge?

eta: Nope site security certificate expired. I guess we wait for it to be fixed.

Thanks for doing these Roger. If it was left to my skills they would have been Large Bolded Text for PBF 15
