@Pisarz Wow, that screen looks great! I especially like that Warrior's position.
I've once made an awesome Eradicator screen, but - unfortunately - it's lost. I guess I can make another one, when I get a new hard disk...
Yay, I've got it! It was a lot bigger (and it wasn't so dark!), but I've cropped it.
It looks good!
You said that it was a lot bigger and not so dark. If I increase the quality of the game, the frame gets smaller, and my screenshots are smaller than the size of my screen. Do you know how to fix this?

@Pisarz Nope. I've got the same issue!
I guess it's because there were smaller screens when this game was created.
Not much, but I like tactical formations!
Working on in-game POV's and how they could be improved for Open Machines (cinematic transitions).
Composition study: (Not much, just testing some Photoshop features.)
The 3rd person view is in this case a ground view:

Probably irrelevant, but eh...
@Gameuser10 Wow, it looks awesome! Epic!
I MUST have it as a wallpaper on my desktop!
Actually, that's entirely relevant! The quality and size of the image is superior to the ones I can make with my computer. Every time I take a screenshot, its size is just a fraction of the size of my screen. And if I increase the game quality, the size of the window simply shrinks. @Encrypted stated before to have the same issue.

@Pisarz Kinda sorta, yeah... it wasn't really annoying, anyway, all the screenshots I've did were of an awesome quality - my full "Eradicator facing somewhere" screenshot was so beautiful and majestic that I still can't believe I could do something like that - yet, I've lost it...
Still, I agree with you, friend.
Haha, I love the title.
I'm intending to change some textures/skins in the original game. My first post in this thread has been updated.
I uploaded a guide for replacing textures in MACHINES!
I used the camouflage of this drone:
I then made this base texture:
And after that, I applied it so that only the details that I wanted from the original textures remain:
New green (reaper) camouflage!
I rather managed to solve the screenshot size problem!
By increasing the resolution only the menu gets smaller, but during gameplay, the window increases by said proportion! It was so simple, yet, I didn't even try to play after seeing that the menu shrinked.
@Pisarz Whoosh! Same here.
By the way, those camouflages look great! Could you do the same with Gorillas (my favourite units)?
Yes! I'm planning to change all the textures. Yet, I still haven't identified the textures for the antennae. That's why I took the reapers' backs in the screenshots.
