Default Sector Backgrounds

Okay people, this is easy enough.

Post all the sector backgrounds you'd like to see in Pandora, and maybe if enough people agree with your idea, maybe we can convince a modder to put it into the game!

I have a few ideas for sector backgrounds here:

This one especially:

And this one would naturally have to have the asteroids, too!


And after a quick zip trough Google, I found this one in particular:


Any other ideas?

Compare this with your picture #3 :



The galaxy on picture #2 is awesome. Does anyone know where this comes from?

The galaxy on picture #4 is really beautiful. But too bad, this picture is not suited. The picture has to be black on it's boundaries.

I have many ideas on how backgrounds should look like. I will try to use both X2 and X3 backgrounds with additional pictures of galaxies and nebulae. Keep posting pictures of nice looking backgrounds, with links if possible.

About picture #3, true.

Not sure about pic #2, though.

I found one here that is particularly awesome:

What do you think?

Both. It was modded from Realspace for X3. The textures for the galaxy can be used in X2, too. But I like the other galaxy from SWAHILI!!!'s first post more, because I think it better fits in X2 backgrounds.

Okay, what do you think about these backgrounds I found (they're from Realspace Backgrounds):

What about this one for a Split sector:

Maybe an Unknown Sector?:

I think something like this could be used for Brennan's Triumph:

What do you think?

Hehe

I already tried many of these backgrounds in X2. But I was disappointed by the outcome. X3 backgrounds work different than X2 backgrounds. As the modders of XTM realized, X2 backgrounds are in some respect much better than X3 backgrounds. But for us X2 addicts X3 backgrounds are outstanding.

Too bad, I can't show you what I have in mind. Too bad, I'm not sure it'll work.

Well, could we make an X2 version of it?
I really like the one for the Split sector and for Brennan's Triumph.

We'll see what is possible. The Brennan's Triumph background is one of my favorites The Split background will not look good in X2, I think. Even if it does, it shouldn't be part of a background too often. And that's the point: it's not possible to add new textures to the game, you have to replace existing ones. That's why I will concentrate on textures that may be used a few times. I don't know right now how many textures I will replace.

Yeah, I really like the Brennan's Triumph background, too. It has to be my favorite out of those that I selected.

Oh, and sense the Milky Way will probably look like crap in X2, could we model this galaxy:

And put in the background for Brennan's Triumph instead?
