I want to change my desktop wallpaper to one of the fractal images from ST1; I need a change of scenery, and they look cool.

Here's the problem: The website listed in the credits (mbfractals.com) doesn't exist anymore.

Anyone know where to get them, other than a screenshot?

I'll make some SubTerra wallpapers if people are interested.

I know I'd be interested, though from the looks of things, I'm probably the only one who is.

It's nice to know someone is.

As I mentioned before, I really like the fractal images.

Radiant is very busy elsewhere though so maybe I'd recommend looking for Julia images via an online generator. Having followed Subterra for so many years though, I'd agree that it would be great to have the originals. The size of them will prob need to be thought about though, as they must be more than 1024x768.

What are fractal images?

Yeesh, I've made about 40 or so levels for SubTerra (most are unfinished, though), and yet there is still stuff I don't know about the game.
But then again, no matter how much someone knows a game, they still learn something new on the message boards.

In my search for fractal art, I came across this site. It explains what fractals are, because I certainly can't.

And the fractal images I'm talking about are the rainbow-colored backgrounds used in the game.

A little bit off-topic, but why is there someone called "Radiant!"?

Sorry to be accusatory here, but I think this guy is trying to impersonate Pieter (whose username doesn't have the exclaimation point).

If I'm wrong, an explaination would be appreciated.

I don't know the whole story, but I do know that Radiant and Radiant! are the same person.

I am me, as well as me! The reason is that my DROD score upload didn't work at first, so I tried fixing that by getting a new nick with an exclamation point.

Oh, and I'll upload some SubTerra wallpapers for christmas, as well as a much-fixed Push-It Puzzle, as well as a surprise...

Yeah, that too. I know I've been neglectful, but life is just... complicated.

SubTerra wallpaper pack, in 800x600 (that's because the game itself is 800x600, and I could resize the pictures just as well as you could :) )
