Yeah that is what I do as well, but I only have your pack and default provided by Steve, so they are not visualy consistent. :)

Alright, I played a bit with this last night. I think the best way to handle it is to create the ribbons as base one, but don't include them in the CSV. So pretty much you will have the graphics set and once needed you will just have to select the ribbon you prefer the most, give it a name a value and so on. I felt odd to have ribbons for operations and wars not even occurred yet.

So I am planning the following set of ribbons with a preset style and color and as each war may have different operations you will find a general War Ribbon (this will be replicate by 5 to allow for recurring wars with same party same as done with Class I, II, III etc) and a set of Operation Ribbons to go with the War Ribbon (5 operation ribbons: 2 for ground, 2 for naval, 1 special). As once the setup is done to change color is quite easy with the ribbon maker I am thinking to do as many as I can in one go. I will play with it more today and may send some screenshots.

The above should fit all needs including fighting spoiler races. At the end of the day will be up to you to decide what use and when.

I finaly set up my 1.12.1 and of course I am using your medal set. Thank you again for the set.

And I have a bit of imput. I noticed one thing, Medal of Honor has anchor on the ribbon, maybe it would be better to have something more neutral as I would expect that this could be awarded to ground commanders as well?

Loving the medal set BTW. If I can be bothered I might manually edit the CSV so the medal promotion points aren't so seemingly arbitrary. Took me ages to edit the points in-game and I still need to balance them better. I assume this won't break the mod at all as long as I just edit the number values and follow the instructions to import the new CSV to a new game?
Currently using Aurora 1.12 - Unmodded
