Thanks again for all this Vicent. I too like the grassy continents in green. The white lettering on this is a nice contrast to the dark lettering on the startup too. Fira Sans is a good font. It really updates the looks of this.

Hi Martin, thank you...

I just updated the wiki page to suggest a font substitution : Fira Sans
is a very clean sans serif typeface, under the SIL Open Font License. I
find an intersting contrast with garamond serif.

Hi Vincent,

I packed most of the graphical tests I did last week on a wiki page. I
tried to initiate a place (very rough yet) where we can further set up
things concerning graphical identity. Hope this helps.


thanks a lot! The splash screens with grass continents are absolutely
great!!! I like most [1]. For the startup screen I would choose [2].
