Really?

I mean the Sathanas may be hot, but the image angle, and quality ain't.

I don't see anything bad about the quality, although I might agree that a forward-facing shot would be somewhat better.

THe Image angle shows off those excellent engine glows and I can't see any problem with the quality.

The fact that it's from behind, and most of the image is blank.

It's not good enough, allright?

Its not an argument its a debate! :p

The fact that its from behing shows off the best engine glows in the game, and most of the image is not blank it shows off all of those nice nebulae.

@Falcon, where did you get those engine glows?

Shouldn't there be a poll on which image should be the title screen?

actualy, mabye not.

I sort of like that idea. And I took a look and it looks like phreak's right, most of the old random-screen code I did is still in there. (but commented-out)

Hmmm...

To really show off what the SCP has accomplished,
a new media_vp splash screen should contain...

- new high resolution background nebulas, planets
- spiffy weapon effects
- dramatic/realistic light effects
- new high poly ships

...all this should be nicely composed together in one pic.

So far none of the suggestions is on par with the old one.

No offense, but I personally don't see why everyone is so enamored with the current splash screen.  There's nothing really special about it; it's just a few high-poly ships sitting there.  Kieto's shot, on the other hand...that thing is hot. :D

THanks :D  It took me deleting all the events in a mission with a good background, deleting objectives, briefing, Command briefing and 3 different SCP builds.  Oh yeah and a 96MB download.

I never actually liked the current one, I prefer shots showing ships in Action, although that Sathanas shot is nice.  I suppose its because the current splash screen doesn't show any Shivan ships and only a fairly plain blue background.

Yes, you read it right I don't like the current splash screen!

What with the gun?  Oh crap!
