Squadwar will return one day. Get your suggestions in now.

You don't like the starfield?  It's ok, I just stole it from google image search.  I don't know what you mean by it can change though, it wouldn't be user-customizable but I wasn't set on that being the final background necessarily.  Definitely open to suggestions.

I had already mentioned (sometime less than 5 years ago but still a while back) in the "Very Interesting Things" thread here on Multiplayer that I had been doing work on Squadwar.  But I thought that this one might be worth bumping again since it's stickied, and a different group of people might get notification emails :)

Currently working on making the tooltips more interactive.  Linking squad names, little more info, that kind of thing.  Might also try to make it possible to issue challenges directly from the league map.  That one would be pretty tricky though.

Starfield is fine mate :)

Hmm.  What about these?

I like #s 1, 3, 4, 5, 9, 10 (would need crop), 11, 14, 20, 21, & 22 (would also need crop).

After making that post, I made it configurable per-league :p

Those are all very striking images.  However, the one I selected had several features I thought important for this particular use case:

* It looked generic enough to tile well, to expand nicely for virtually any monitor size
* It was already a fairly small file size, to help with load times
* It didn't look like it would make the map itself hard to read
A couple of those you posted might work, but any with a featured object would have to stretch as oppose to tile, and I'm not sure how that well that would work.

Hmph.  I just... I dunno.  Trying to see if the starfield could be pretty in the background.  Not that the other one isn't, just, you know how starfields can be.  Oh well, valid points.
