Image Style Guide

We can use standard MediaWiki Image Handling


We can also use embedded images. Just posting an image url "naked":


Results in:


Image Size

Prefer to keep images small to preserve mobile friendliness.

With RSI images there's a trick to manipulating the size. The second to last part of the url should be post:

So if you see:


Change it to:


For Imgur add a "s" or "l" after the image id code (before the .jpg or .png)

Rule on Hotlinking

Practice of hotlinking (or linking to another site's images directly) is in general frowned upon and not allowed here EXCEPT when linking to an image hosting site (like Imgur) or official RSI website.

Artists should be given credit, and we shouldn't force loads onto other people's servers without their permission, unless it's an image hosting site that's meant for that.

Reason its okay with RSI is that I recall a conversation with Ben Lesnick where he said we could, although he reserved the right to reevaluate that if need be.


We have permission to use images by Teller, Maximus Glatius and official Star Citizen images from CIG[1]. For all others we need to seek out permission of the author.

Image Credit

Images should be attributed. A line below with an optional description and Image Creator or Source is good. Making the source a link to full size is highly recommended.

 ''[[Kruger Intergalactic]] [[P-72]] [[Archemedes]] - [https://robertsspaceindustries.com/media/t091ds85hnm87r/source/Archimedes_Racing_render_FINAL.jpg RSI]''
Kruger Intergalactic P-72 Archemedes - RSI

Slightly more complex form using media wiki tables:

 {| style="text-align: center;"

 |''[[P-52]] [[Merlin]] - [https://robertsspaceindustries.com/media/kygd5oiemp684r/source/TopOpen.jpg RSI]'' 
 |''[[P-72]] [[Archimedes]] - [https://robertsspaceindustries.com/media/t091ds85hnm87r/source/Archimedes_Racing_render_FINAL.jpg RSI]''

Results in:

TopOpen.jpg Archimedes_Racing_render_FINAL.jpg
P-52 Merlin - RSI P-72 Archimedes - RSI
