Just a question: Has the Simutrans Graphic archive a section for walpapers?

Nope...yet. Are you going to create new wallpapers or are you going to use SMSC winning images?

If the other winners want I can do the same with your images. But it's better if you have a bigger size, from 1024x768 and up.

My screenshot had a bigger resolution at original. Look here: http://www.simutrans-forum.de/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=12922

At the german forum we have a own thread for wallpapers: http://www.simutrans-forum.de/forum/thread.php?threadid=2800&hilight=Wallpaper

I "are" going to do nothing. ... well, for now nothing. :)

I was just wondering if our community has a place where people could download wallpapers and other goodies like other gamemaking communities do.

Nope, we don't have such a place. The main problem of hosting it at gsc might be the space available, but VS can give you more details...

Thanks sojo. I created a wallpaper with your image. I've made some tweaks on it to look better.

Anyone noticed that train with cut graphic?

sojo, i can't change the font type, I lose some changes. I wanted to change to the font I used on the logo for Simutrans here. I'm not so familiar with GIMP.

Also where I can download those fuel ships TheTransporter used on his image at SMSC September?

You can make a new Word.

1. Get the dark color of the letter.
2. Get the light color from the border of letter.
3. Delete the level with the word
4. Write the new Word in your font with dark color
5. Choose in level font all what is not painted
6. Reverse selection (STRG+I)
7. Make a border under selection (I think 3 Pixel or so)
8 Paint the border in light color

Maybe it give a shorter solution. But I don't know it.

Thanks sojo, Here's what I got:


Also adding my other wallpaper from other topic:


And I don't know why I can't open simutrans-germany forum. I think it's my DNS or maybe my modem. I always have to open via a proxy site.
