As build21 is drawing closer, let's sweeten the waiting time until the last bugs are fixed by topping each other who can produce the most beautiful screenshots showing off the latest goodies.

The rules are similar to the previous competition:

  • Install a recent development build (or a pull request branch targeted for b21). Do not use amazons builds since we can't be certain yet they will make it into b21.

  • Create a beautiful fogless game, or a nice screenshot that well illustrates a new feature

  • Use Ctrl-F11 to take a screenshot. See the Technical FAQ on where to find the file.

  • The screenshot should have a 16:9 aspect ratio, and should have a width that is no smaller than 620px. For more information on the format and further guidelines, visit freedesktop.org and search the page for screenshots/.

  • Upload the screenshot and a savegame as an attachment to a post under this topic. Add a title and description for the image to the post.

All screenshots that are of sufficient quality will be published in our Screenshots section on the homepage.

Another nice feature!

But how does it work together with ctrl+click? Does ctrl+click on dismantle unload the wares immediately and then dismantle, and does ctrl+click on destroy let the wares vanish immediately and destroying the building? That might be the best way, or am I wrong?
