You need ID!

 

More than just a flag pack, this mod adds a selection of flag images with numbers and letters to ease the identification of multiple spacecraft or other constructions in-game. Additional images are supplied which can be used with other mods for decoration, cinematics, fun and enhanced game immersion.

IDFlags can be used stand-alone (for flag images only), but is best used with either the Decal Stickers mod by Blackheart612 or the Nebular Decals Continued mod (originally by Krasimir, now maintained by Linuxgurugamer).

 

INSTALLATION

To install, simply copy the IDFlags folder from the zip archive into your Kerbal Space Program GameData folder. If you already have another version of this mod installed, delete the IDFlags folder first. 

 

INTEGRATION WITH BLACKHEART'S DECAL STICKERS MOD

This mod adds seven new variants of each of the five decal parts in Blackheart's mod, plus set of new "Place Anywhere Sticker Micro" parts that can be used for smaller signs, e.g. on rovers, planetary base modules or for airlock identification.

The variants each represent a set of decals: Numerals/Letters (Standard, White, Red, Yellow, Green, Blue and "Giant"), Airlock signs and miscellaneous Labels.

 

INTEGRATION WITH LINUXGURUGAMER'S NEBULAR DECALS CONTINUED MOD

IDFlags automatically adds seven new variants of the Flat and Curved decal parts (decal sets as above).

 

HINTS AND TIPS

In most cases, placing a Decal or Sticker on (or too near) a hatch will obstruct it and prevent it being used.  Some parts (e.g. the Lynx Cab from Nils277's Feline Utility Rovers) seem to be OK with this.  Test carefully!

Be careful when placing Decal Stickers with transparent backgrounds close to each other.  If the transparency of one overlaps with the visible image of another, the textures will interfere.

Most of the decals use a stock-alike font, but the "Giant" letter/number decals are rendered using a font with more consistent character widths.

For integration with Decal Stickers or Nebular Decals, please ensure that you have the module manager .dll in your GameData folder, as this is no longer bundled with the other mods.

 

Update v1.2, now with over 510 flags and decals!

NB - works with versions earlier than 1.6.1 too.
