The Red Set

Post by another_commander »

Are you bored looking at a black background when accessing interface screens? Here is an alternative: A background set to make the UI visuals a tiny bit more interesting. Before anything else, I just wanted to say this: The color of the backgrounds is tinted red. This is totally monitor-unfriendly and I know it. It was done deliberately so, as a somewhat pull-leg response to a comment by Commander McLane about most background screens being blueish. It might be tiresome to look at after a while, but I thought that instead of having it collecting dust in my hard disk, why not share it anyway?

Please consider this just a small demo and use at own risk, or wait for Svengali and PAGroove to release their proper, gorgeous backgrounds set to the public.

Link for downloading the Red Set: http://terrastorage.ath.cx/Marmagka/e8e ... RedSet.zip

Edit: Re-uploaded the set, because the original included a test screenbackgrounds.plist.

Mmmm. I think I like :) although they can make the info harder to read. Perhaps a little fainter/more transparent? Nice though, and thanks for sharing them.

Download link is broken. Can anyone point me to an alternative download, either of the entire OXP or just the logo image for the intro screen? (Why was that particular background image not added to core Oolite years ago?)
