"ONE OF THE OLDEST IF NOT ALREADY THE OLDEST ORGANIZATION FOR BATTLESTAR GALACTICA"

"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

" JOIN THE FIGHT! JOIN THE FLEET IS FAMILY INITIATIVE - BATTLESTARARCHIVE- BATTLESTARWIKI- SPACEPARENTS- GALACTIKFRAK- BFC/RAVEN" IN SUPPORT OF MICHAEL HOGAN RECOVERY. MICHAEL HOGAN IS BETTER KNOWN IN THE BSG RDM WORLD AS THE HEADSTRONG, GALACTICA XO COLONEL SAUL TIGH!! "

Saw a discussion in chat about how I did the nameplates...just a minor point was made, but I thought I would share the process so whoever wants to make their own will know how. I'll begin with the font. Major Barstow had advised me that he had found the font from Facebook. Found it, but when I tried to download it, just gave me a blank screen. Did an internet search and found a page called Fontstruct. Down the page you'll see a browse button. On the next page, do a search for a font called "Husker." (You'll have to create an account) Download it and you'll be ready to go. The CAG advised to use MS Word, but since I don't have it on this laptop, I went with Paint. Also, I've heard Photoshop or PowerPoint can be used, but Paint was simpler for me. However, Paint didn't have the octagon shape necessary for the border, so I used my first nameplate and erased the lettering and saved the border for a template. From there on it was a matter of sizing up the lettering and spacing and I was good to go...hope this helps!

ALSO!!! Remember, you won't have your permanent tail number assigned until you receive your scores and certification, be it Viper or Raptor, from Admiral Rivera. If you want to make a plate beforehand, check with your squad leader or Major Barstow about having a temporary tail number assigned.

You might be able to render a viper or raptor with the nameplate, I'd have to test that. Good tutorial!

Thanks for the Info. The  name plates look really good!
