It is very nice, although it is probably not going to replace my Hubble photo of the Horsehead nebula.

Unlike most wallpaper, it is actually the screen resolution of my main monitor, which is kind of nice but kind of sad, because it is hard to find 23/24" monitors with 1200 lines anymore. They are almost all 1080. I hope I get a few more years of life out of this one. I do not want to go down in resolution and I do not want to shell out over a grand for one of those high resolution 30" monitors, nice as they are.

It's just a thought.

I for one would like to say thank you. It's lovely.

I don't see why people should or would be complaining, it's really quite stupid.


These little touches are really nice, and to me at least, remind me that cryptic care about us, and like giving their customers as much as they can.

Thanks

I do like the wallpaper, very nice. Mind if I make it a wallpaper for my phone?

And to all the people freaking out, do you guys know it probably took him even less than a few minutes to just Rescale and SaveAs in Photoshop?

This comes from someone spending a few extra minutes of his day to try and do something nice for you all, and passing it along to me.

It's not like a programmer, or a systems designer, who has a hobby of making wallpapers and taking screenshots, dropped everything he's doing to bring you new content, and spent several hours to make you a wallpaper instead.

Thanks for the wall paper.

And guys I know we're all mad about the current state of affairs but try to not attack at every turn. Otherwise the Devs will start to ignore you.

Was this screenie taken using in-game props? If so, what are the chances of adjusting ESD (especially the model of Earth) to look more like this? I wish I could take a pic of my ship with this backdrop.

More cloud cover, larger sphere to give a closer orbit, etc.
