Honestly, I get a shock every time I open Custom.

For comparison, here's the old logo. Also, the background is now drawn at 32 bit color depth rather than dithered.



I think panning looks OK only as long as it's fast enough so that it looks smooth rather than crawling pixel by pixel.



How about a small number of different backgrounds from which one is picked randomly? (Wrapping maps, either screenshots of the map editor as above, or just the map itself exported.) I wouldn't want to take them all from Vikings.

Both logos look really good. Ichiro's is cleaner and has a stronger aesthetic, but I really can't decide which is more fitting. The background scrolling looks beautiful either way. Choosing randomly from a set of backgrounds upon opening custom sounds good to me. They could be any combination of tilemaps, editor screenshots, etc.

Oh yeah, lots of Fnnrf's battle backdrops would work out great:


I just need to wrap them around if the window is wider than 320 pixels, or concatenate some of them.

And one of Fenrir's (which has the advantage of originally being 640x400):



Tilemaps could work too. And some of the graphical browsers, but I think screenshots of typical editors wouldn't look very good.

The sprite editor screencap is a little busy, but it's appropriate. You could get away with it, considering it's an accurate depiction of the engine.

I was kinda thinking about that.

For a panning image, or any background image. it would be better to have a generic geometric pattern (e.g, fractals), rather than a screenshot.
That would help each user have a unique relationship with the engine, and see it as an impersonal, impartial kinda experience.

A good pattern is much more stimulating for creative endeavours, and the screenshots might be wildly inappropriate for the project or use of the engine.
It might be distracting or off-putting or something. This is intended for a user, not an audience.
Besides, screenshots are generally too busy..

Maybe we could submit designs as a community project? The option to turn it off or use your own design is also welcome.
I quite like scenes of nature, so I'm happy to see backdrops and game images. It's also a good way to advertise the assets that come with the engine!

I demand some kind of crazy screen-saver-esque pattern. Fractals sound good, or those crazy 3D Pipes windows used to have. Not that I'm gonna do any part of it, 'cause I'm retired AF fams, but #GetItDone

what could blow some minds are moving "NPCs" but i'm not sure how well the engine could handle it

Fractals, eh? I have actually been considering that for a long time. But that doesn't seem terribly on-topic for an RPG engine.
Now, I could try randomly piecing together tiles to see what patterns emerge, but the results are likely to be bad, especially if the tiles need to be connected together correctly. On the other hand, I want to implement "autotiling" (automatic placement of connecting tiles) anyway...

I've finally collected all logos/splash screens and created a new wiki page for them:

Logos and Splash Screens

Did I miss any?

I also changed the logo on the wiki front page. (See if you can notice the difference...)
