Thats just BRILLIANT!! Both from an artistic as well as a Hummor point of view. We must include that in FO someware (idealy linked in some way to a "Space Monster" event).

That spaceship one flying over the planet is SWeeT.

IS that a sun or a nuke going off on the planet. I think it would be cool if people were left to wonder between the two.

Its the star. I had this idea in my head it was an exploration vessal. Though there are some turrets on it.

I don't want to offend obiwan in any way, but in my humble opinion the current v0.3 splash looks a little clumsy(i hope it's the right word). The logo placement and those borders bother me most, but it's also the color overkill. It's a question of taste i guess.

Sadly, i don't have much to offer myself. I've handed in a modified version of the v0.2 splash, which is displayed below. Just thought i should share it with you. I liked the change in mood those colors give and it also fits the logo pretty nice.

I agree regarding the color.

Me likes the proposal.

That reminds me that I should get the update-tool to work on Windows as well.
