From the screenshots submitted, I think this one would fit the homepage best:

Screenshot

If there are no objections, I'll implement this soonish.

My objection is that I haven't send you my screenshots yet. You once told that the deadline is ca. 1 week after you publish the release candidate, so I still have some time, don't I? face-wink.png

I'd like to have all screenshots in by the end of next weekend, so we won't have to repackage the release for them. We're down to 1 bug that we'll leave in if we can't fix it soon, because it's pretty rare.

6th April will be fine. If all goes well, we'll go into Winter Freeze next weekend, and prepare the RC after that. We'll still need a few days for choosing the screenshot before the RC, because it will be linked in the Appdata file.

I think the following screenshots should be renamed:

  • Complete World -> Zoom out
  • Four Tribes, Four Terrains II -> Zoom in

So we have also the zooming feature described face-smile.png

BTW: The screenshots from WorldSavior are showing how to place roads effectively face-wink.png On the other side this looks a bit boring.

For the homepage i'd vote for 'Four Tribes, Seafaring of the four tribes':

Seafaring of the four tribes

But isn't "Complete World" remarkable as some complete World? And that's actually not "Four Tribes, Four Terrains II", but the "Four Tribes, Four Terrains". Maybe it's a little harsh to degrade that to some "zoom in".

You are talking like all of my screenshots look like this - not fair!

Who is allowed to vote at all?

The screenshots section of the website is mainly to show any new features of a new release. So, in my opinion, the rename is expedient.

About the 'boring' roads: It is just my personal opinion. If you want to discuss how personal opinions are published, please open a new topic.

Everyone may has an opinion about the new image for the homepage. Everyone can 'vote' for a preferred image. In my opinion the image should show the beauty of the game and some main features (like the new tribe and seafaring). Thats why i voted for this particular image. Sorry, but i think any of the other images do not fulfill my personal requirements. Other people might think different face-wink.png
