nice! But wallpapers (and maybe also screensavers) would be *very* nice also with screenshots taken in game (and slightly edited). Could anybody be interested?

What a resolution have you? Can you stretch the image?
If you need a bigger size, say what resolution and what wallpaper!

What I am curious about is where the last wallpaper has been found or whether it's been home-made. I may be wrong, but I have seen it before. Maybe it was on the ST forums itself, but still, I am curious.

It is selfpainted. Yesterday in the morning. But, there is a wallpaper that looks something like this. My source of ideas.

You can find it here http://interfacelift.com/wallpaper_beta/details/1391/big_city_life.html

That's the one yeah! I've got that one in my background folder somewhere on my hdd. But yours looks great! I don't want to take this too far off-topic, but how did you make this? I never got further than melting other pics together with some erasing and adding...

I use GIMP with layers.

1. I have look for the backgroundcolor and make the first layer
2. Second layer was the building-layer (this is painted with a small and a big black brush)
3. I have made the next layer for the stars. They are made with a special brush.
4. The logo from the nightlies is inverted and have some transparenz (you have to delete the background under the logo)

This was all.

Yes, 1900x1200 is acceptable. I have wide full HD (1920×1080)...
...Good!
