[WEB] KSP Ribbon Generator [v2.0, Dec 22, 2014] Over 6 Million Served!

Recommended Posts

A user found a bug in my Ribbon Generator page that breaks URLs for users with spaces in their username.  It's all fixed now!

Thanks to that user for the report.  :)

A version for some planet packs would be nice, such as GPP

This has been suggested once or twice, but I haven't planned to do this because of a few reasons.  For one, I personally only play vanilla (stock).  Also, I'm not the person who made the ribbons or the rules that govern their use; that was the illustrious @Unistrut.  I only built the generator and host the images for Kerbaltek members.  Then, there are questions about what packs to include, and how to arrange them, with or without the stock planets, etc..

I would suggest posting in the thread for the images and rules below.  If anyone has input on this, and/or artwork, I'd certainly consider it.  :)

EDIT:  Oh yea, and I'm no artist either.  Don't look to me for artwork, sorry.

Give me a moment to fix the broken link and you'll be able to make your own with the original GIMP file I used to make the Kerbin system ribbons.  There's a color layer that's separate from the texture and bevel on the edges, so you just need to pick the two main colors of your planet and bucket fill that layer.  If it's a satellite of a planet then you fill the end with the planet colors and then repeat the process with the satellite's major colors.

I've got Version 8 of your images - the latest I know of - on Kerbaltek here:  http://www.kerbaltek.com/ribbons
Look for the "download the raw images" link in the first paragraph.

Yay!  Ezriilc has saved us!  So yes, go to his site, download the raw image and proceed from there.

I have been working on something ribbon related...

While you're logged into this forum, click your name at the top-right, then click "Account Settings", and then click "Signature" on the left.

In your signature settings, click the "Insert other media" button at the bottom-right, and then click "Insert image from URL".  Then paste the URL to your ribbons that you got from my site, and click the "Insert into post" button.  When you're done editing your signature, click the "Save" button at the bottom left.

As of today, Kerbaltek members' Ribbons have been served more than 6 million times since ~July of 2014!  At one point, I was worried that my host may not like the bandwidth use, but I've never gotten any notices or slowdowns (that I know of), so I'm glad that I decided to host users' images in-house - it has worked out great.  I'm pleased that users still like it after all these years, and I look forward to many more years to come.

I've been thinking it's high time I got back into it and add to my own achievements.  Getting all the devices and completing all my ribbons has been my goal from the beginning of the project.  I encourage others to do the same, as KSP has only gotten better over time, and it's so much better a use of one's time than crushing candy or battling royals.  ;)

Fly on, you magnificent, exploding krash-test dummies!  :prograde::0.0:

Good news, everyone!

I'm pleased to announce that Kerbaltek.com now uses encryption (https://) for a secure connection, to keep your activity on our site private.

This change will most likely break your ribbons image in your signature.  Here's how to fix that on this forum:

  1. While you're signed in, click your username at the top-right of any forum page, then click "Account Settings".
  2. In the "Settings" view, click on "Signature" at the left.
  3. Get rid of any existing ribbons code.  Remove the text "ribbons.png" or whatever it may say in place of your ribbons image.  Basically, select the line and hit delete.
  4. Click the "Insert other media" button at the bottom-right, then click "Insert image from URL".
  5. Enter your ribbons image URL that you got from our Ribbon Generator - as follows:
    https://www.kerbaltek.com/users/[your_username]/ribbons.png
  6. OPTIONAL
    If you'd like to show others how to get their own ribbons, and some love for Kerbaltek :cool:, click on your ribbons image in the signature editor, then click the "Link" icon in the editor menu, and enter the URL to our Ribbon Generator:
    https://www.kerbaltek.com/ribbons

    Then click "Insert into post", and be sure to click "Save"

As always, if you have any issues, please contact me here in the forum, or on our Contact page.

Cheers!

Well, I've promised myself that if I ever get them *all*, then I'll start bugging you for the OPM update to the ribbons. :) But by that point, KSP2 will likely be on the shelves!

Fair enough, but actually that would be Unistrut's domain.  That's who made the ribbons and established the "rules" for their use.  I just built the generator and host the images.
