Swirve games background

Why does it have to be black? I can't play at work cause its not a normal color (white) and people notice it since all I do are spreadsheets.

Anyone else not like the black in Utopia and Earth?
Even grey would be better.

well

i only play at home and i like the black but i see your point and it might be a good idea to change the color scheme, but i dont think he would change it so people could play more safely at work

Well, itīs no big deal to offer say 10 different color schemes via CSS... So why not implement it?

Pets are a great help in times of loneliness, and in times of starvation, too!

I dont see why there isnt an option to change the background color already. I mean, theres an option to change the music, so why not have 10 or so colors as mentioned above? And Hawki said, it wouldnt be that hard to impliment.

hmmm

well, i cant see a reason why it would not be possible, it just seems like the reason you mentioned would not be a reason mehul would support, but you could always email him...

I believe Maddox said it best, when he said that your computer screen, no matter how much you want it to be, is NOT a peice of paper, it is a lightbulb. Staring at a white background is not good for your eyes, at all. Plus, I find white backgrounds to cause the page to seem blurrier.

An idea: If you'e getting in trouble at work for playing Utopia when you should be working, consider the option of (get this) doing work at work! Like smoking inside the office, it may seem tempting, but is it really worth it?

Why black? Because it's easy on the eyes.

Eh... I'll go with the Dove wrappers.

i had never really stopped to think about what a white backround would look like, and to test out QC's idea, i stared at a blank Microsoft Word document, and surel enough, white did hurt my eyes...

You can set your browser to force all pages to load white backgrounds. In Firefox, go to Tools, then select options. In options, select general, then click the fonts and colors button. You'll see how from there. Hopefully it works for you...

As for IE, it is basically the same, but I can not get it to work for me.

Black is the best color. White is too bright.

You know the real meaning of PEACE only if you have been through the war. Anyone, who truly wants to go to war, has never truly been there before!

Black is definetely best. White would be horrible considering how many people spend a lot of time in front of the computer playing Utopia. Black is just so much easier on the eyes.

For IE, go to Tools -> Options.
Click Accessibility, check the boxes for "Ignore colors specified on webpages"
Poof, it will be white.

Black is the best imo. White has a tendency to be a lil bit hard on the eyes. So black is definately my pick.

Btw if you wanna change utopia's bg why not try to change utopiatemples black bg :P
