Flag Compression

  • So, when I'm playing a 100 man or just any game in general, I like to add a little bit of background to my country. Whether this means, going 'communist' or 'fascist', I always change my flag. However, due to the way flag customization works, my flag often gets squished to fit in the circle. So, my flag for nationalist Canada (see below) gets squished into a less inspiring version. Currently, ways to fix this are by getting in photoshop or whatever flag maker you use and compensating by making it really wide, or use a flag that is less susceptible to being squished. So, to fix this, I suggest adding a 'choose what portion of you image to be shown' option. I know this is in other games, I've seen it, but I forgot what games they're in to find it. Basically just a circle that the user can move around and expand/shrink to their liking.

  • I have used an app to shrink photos, "pixels' for avatars in the past, should also work for this flag compression...example your flag is (816 x 408) and compressed is (62 x 51)... so I would try the windows shrink app to change size to (50 x 50) and save that to upload into game... then you would get your whole flag into the avatar space...

  • or instead of having a CIRCLE for flags, maybe we should have a rectangle


    I mean it sounds pretty damn logic to me

    Soldiers! don't give yourselves to brutes

    men who despise you, enslave you

    who regiment your lives, tell you what to do

    what to think and what to feel!

    Who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle,

    use you as cannon fodder.

    Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men

    machine men with machine minds and machine hearts!

    Unfortunately, I have a chromebook that can't run the damn thing.;(

    It sounds pretty logic, but it's not so good in practice. People use different size images for their flags, so even if it was a rectangle, the image would still either be compressed or widened to fit the dimensions of the rectangle.


    Hell, some flag for real countries might not fit. Take the US and PRC flags for example.

    The United States Flag uses a 10:19 proportion, while the PRC flag uses 2:3 proportion. Other flags such as the German and Bulgarian flags use a 3:5 proportion.
