Announcing Alucard's Public Graphics Pack Repository

Postby Alucard » Wed 25 Feb, 2009 18:35

tl;dr: click here.

Everyone complains how hard making a graphics pack work is. Well, it doesn't have to be. With astrorepublic no longer working, someone had to make a public graphics pack repository. That repository is here.

FAQ:

Q. Will this work with any browser? Any OS?
A. Yes! Even Firefox 3 on Vista, even Opera, even Safari, because this way you don't have to deal with browser security settings.

Q. Will this work on all servers?
A. Yep. The galaxies are current as of 06 Jun 2009 (with Gamma), if you find any missing please let me know.

Q. Will this be faster than a local pack? Faster than AE?
A. If your graphics package is working locally (C:\ drive), no it will not be faster. However, if you live on the US side of the pond, then using one of these skins will very likely be faster than using Original or DarkAstros from AE.

Q. How do I get it to work?
A. Instructions are provided.

Q. Can you add more skins?
A. I can, but they must have a post in the graphics packs forum and have some feedback before I will consider it.

Q. What skins are cool?
A. I used to use a modified version of bluespace, but right now I'm particularly fond of Shades of rED. By the way, I believe all of my hosted packs have transparent astros, paving the way to allow light-colored skins. Any makers?

Q. This is super cool!
A. That's not a question!

Q. What if it breaks?
You can let me know, but I make no guarantees. I am personally using this however, so if it breaks and I can fix it I will do so as soon as I can.

Q. Thanks! How are you doing this?
A. I have a virtual private server from Paraproc, which gives me all I need to provide this for $10/month.

Something else. If they were banned, we wouldn't have a GP subforum, and there would be no skins to download on account.aspx?view=display.

We also wouldn't have the in-game option to use one...
