1. I think it would be handy if we had a pinned thread containing custom factions. The contest winners and the honorable mentions might kick it off. The thread's first entry would describe how to post them (include readme with instructions for installlation, for example). I have 25 alien factions in my current game but I need MORE!!!!
2. I can make factions, but one thing I don't know how to do is a problem. Suppose I find a neat picture suitable for profile or portrait, and say it has a white or gray or whatever background. Could some kind person tell me how to make the background transparent so that I can use other backgrounds --- solid while doesn't look so good, lol.
Comments or help appreciated!
