TOPIC | FR Tools - Signatures, Banners & More
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 ... 33 34

I've been putting in a lot of time and effort into this site, because I know that one of the biggest problems with making an awesome-looking thread is the trouble with making awesome-looking headers for it. I have a few more creations in the works as well, but if you're curious about them, you'll just have to wait and find out.

Anyway, without further ado, let me introduce the main tools available at the moment:
  • Texture Library
    Oodles and oodles of pretty textures that will take on any colour you choose. No more being stuck with the realisation that all the pretty backgrounds are in the wrong colours and all the backgrounds in the right colours are ugly. You can try them out on any colour, then just plug them in to the 'background' field on any generator.
  • Signature Generator
    You can make for yourself a pretty signature with flags for your Flight Element, or pop on one of your own dragons (or your elemental deity) to say hello to everyone. What sort of signatures can you make? Check out examples: {here} and {here}!
  • Thread Heading Maker
    Just look up at the top of this to see one of the many examples of a thread heading. Don't want as many words? Don't use them. Want loads of pictures? Go for it! The sky's the limit with the thread heading maker, so you can jazz up your threads however you like.
  • Breeding Pair Display Maker
    I'm not going to lie, this creation took up most of my time (and is possibly still a bit buggy--let me know if it acts weirdly). It's probably my proudest achievement to date, and I can't wait to see all the beautiful pairs that people put on display using the generator. Check out my example {here}!

Now for the other important little stuff. I worked hard to create FR Tools, however I did so with my own mind, time, and dedication. I did not reverse engineer any of Flight Rising's code, just painstakingly used the 'print screen' button and 'copy image' to create a fan site dedicated to these dear dragons we all love. No infringement is intended, as FR Tools is designed to encourage use of Flight Rising, not to steal users. All images used on FR Tools have been re-uploaded elsewhere so as to not cause any strain on FR's servers nor eat any of FR's bandwidth.

My work would not have been possible without the help of:
@Peixes, creator of the amazing Colour Predictor, for coding advice.
@Resonance, for this thread listing the colours of the colour wheel.
@Jeri, @madsrobots, and @Mouseguin for being amazing friends and keeping my head screwed on when I felt like giving up.

Thank you, all of you. And to everyone else? Enjoy!

Wow- haven't tried anything out yet, but I must say that website looks stunning! And it looks really easy to use as well.

Kudos to you!

@Adu Thanks! I was definitely going for 'easy', yes. Let me know how it works out for you when you get a chance to play with it?

[b]AAAAA IT'S GREAT[/b] When I first saw it I didn't test it out right away because I was doubtful of how much it could possibly do, considering how easy it was to use, but after seeing a couple of gorgeous banners in the tags, I had to try it out for myself and WOW is it powerful! My only issue so far is that large color ranges seem to throw off the spacing easily?? for the tertiary at least, maybe I'm doing something wrong [img]https://24.media.tumblr.com/0fb588c7100150c20d2f3df0b7aebd14/tumblr_n45nkfIVNf1tt74mqo1_500.png[/img] [img]https://31.media.tumblr.com/6a53edab33b9dd1565ea030d76362a25/tumblr_n45nkfIVNf1tt74mqo2_500.png[/img] Thank you soo much for making this, I can really tell you poured your heart into it~ [s][i]If you want suggestions, though, some border options would be pretty neat(even just basic HTML borders, or rounded corners, or a scalloped edge, or...)[/i][/s]

@Eaglair If your dragons have a large range, you need to make the size of the written genes smaller--you're just not gonna fit an entire row of colours AND long, large gene names all on one row.

Edges, I'm afraid I can't change without destroying the intention of the generator. You see how one post on FR is white and the next is a pale grey colour? Well if the images had rounded corners or whatever, they'd still be squares, they'd just have white triangles at the corners. (That's how images on computers work, it's an Unchangeable Fact.) Someone with photoshop could then make those corners transparent, but since the generators are aimed at people who can't use photoshop in the first place...it'd make it pretty worthless.

Borders on the other hand...I had intended to add border colours and sizes, like on the Thread Header generator, to all of the generators. I might do that later.

@Eaglair But I'm so glad you tried it, and I'm glad you think it's useful! You're right, I did work very hard on it, but I wanted it to be perfect.

@Taleirrh Thanks so much for putting this together!! I'm working on some new breeding banners now, I'm so excited :)

@Taleirrh - Thank you for this. I have and use Photoshop, but I always found it an extreme hassle to set up breeding pair images. This is much more convenient.

Texture Library?

You shall have my love and gratitude for eternity.

@Taleirrh Oh my, I've given everything a whirl, and give a major overhaul to my hatchery. But I have to say the most impressive thing is the massive Texture Library. And everything there tiles? Bless you. [img]http://i.imgur.com/BvWLn6s.png[/img] [img]http://i.imgur.com/g86Ij0y.png[/img]
