Giant Flag Pack (500 Flags)

Recommended Posts

This is a pack of 500 flags from nations, fiction, organizations, history, movements. . . All kinds of flags. The goal of this pack was to make the flags in such a way so that they were aesthetically pleasing at KSP's 16:10 flag ratio. I've often seen flags taken from other sources resized to fit KSP's ratio, and too often they come out distorted. For example:

Using construction sheets for the flags, I've instead made each flag by hand to be (a) the correct ratio, and (b) stay true to the flag's construction as much as possible in terms of the size of objects and their placement.

This pack includes:

  • 216 flags from nations and autonomous regions
  • 81 state and provincial flags
  • 107 flags from various fictional media (Fallout, Star Trek, Game of Thrones, Futurama, The Expanse)
  • 22 flags from various organizations
  • 55 flags from history (including 40 American flags with various counts of stars)
  • 9 flags from various movements
  • 10 miscellaneous flags

In 2 flavors:

Flags without overlay (MEGA)

Flags with overlay (MEGA)

In the future I may add more flags.

How to install flags.

Spoiler

Place flags in GameData/Squad/Flags, or some other subfolder in the GameData folder, as long as they are in a folder called "Flags".

I didn't think this belonged in the Add-On forum, so I put it here.

Moving to Add-on Releases, on the grounds that if you're providing content that's intended to be added to KSP, then that's essentially what this is.

I've snipped the links, since you don't provide any license information for your downloads.  Please add a license in the download as well as in your OP. Thanks!

That's a nice collection. +1 for the work and also for hosting it in google drive so we can browse the collection and just cherry pick the ones we want to download (I think that's nicer than just provided zips with everything).

Forgive my artistic ignorance, but what's the difference between those with overlay and those without?

A reasonable collection. But I am sorry to say not very useful. For KSP flags need to be 256*160.

And for KSP you do not need to add the wrinkle overlay. The game does that for you.

Overlay = wavy

Do they? I thought 512 x 320 would work. I'll test when I get home. If not I'll do a quick update.

I tried a couple of them and they worked ok.

Thanks. I thought they would. The flags have to be in a ratio of 16:10 and are usually 256x160, but in my experience increasing that to 512x320 gives better resolution. I'll upload some 256 versions though.

OK. I never tried any other resolution than 256*160, as far as I knew that was the required size. Since @nukeboyt confirmed 512x320 works just as well I will withdraw my comment.

what's the difference between "with overlay" and "without overlay" flag packs?

The overlay adds wrinkles as if it was on a flagpole. As for as I know this is the only flag pack with an overlay.

The wrinkles on the flag. I think those might not be necessary anymore, though.

The wrinkles aren't useful for flags on craft ;)

I think the game adds them for the ones draped in the VAB/SPH, so the flat images are a preferred starting point. :)

This is a lovely set of flags. Thank you @Trekky0623!
