All of the backgrounds zoom out to fit your browser size so you can actually see more of the background. Alpine doesn't because the electric mana crystals (and their arcs of lightning) would interfere with the logo and menu links.

Ah, I see. Thank you for the clarification.

47 easter eggs ❤️

Hmmm.... maybe it's because I'm on my laptop and the screen is a little smaller, but I haven't noticed any easter eggies. :(

:'D I don't know about the easter eggs either. If there's supposed to be 47 of them, then we're talking about 7-8 easter eggs per biome background; averaged. And I'm just not seeing anything beyond the obvious dragons in Coast and Volcano. I had to follow some of the links to the DA pages just to see the two dragons in the Jungle because the black boarders actually cover them up completely on my desktop browser.

 

EDIT: I just had to zoom out to some 60% on my browser just to finally see the artist's signature in the artwork.

It is indeed just a test image. I like the idea of integrating the backgrounds into more of the site layouts, but I do want to make sure it fits into the feel of the theme and isn't at the expense of readability, so it'll be more than the 30 second hack job I showed.

Phew, thanks! For me the view with the dark theme is great - and I really liked the backgrounds! Thank you for the work and the idea!

Looks like a lot of crystals appeared across the biomes, almost feels like main toppic of all of them. Love the volcano.

But at alpine it seems to be too much crytals, the old one was much more airy and natural. This looks more like alien biome. (also reminds me a lot of blood elves and their fell energy crystals)

 

For some reason they remind me and seem like something you'd see in the lunar invasion in Terraria

I was able to download the biome views from earlier link postings and enlarged them, but still only saw two of the biomes with dragons in them...    It can't be because of my old eyes, I know!!!😉

I see that dragon shadow in the swamp! I bet there's something like that in every biome <3

 

I will say that the alpine caught me so off guard but I LOVE IT SO MUHCHHHH THESE ARE ALL AMAZING I love the bit of mana magic and fiction in each biome, makes it more mystical :D

how lovely !!  the default setting has always worked best for me.  however, the mana crystals are so distracting  I keep missing eggs.

 

covering them up with post its has solved that.

Although I think the biome backgrounds are a really nice update, I had to go to default to see them, I switched back to St. Patrick's day it is easy on my old eyes.

Thanks!

 

The coast is my favourite. I don't like the big green crystals in the alpine; they spoil the background. The forest kind of looks like the trees all have a blue sickness. That dragon in the volcano looks badass; it's a pity that you'll never see him.

 

I can't find any Easter Eggs either. XD Did the background for the personal dragon page change?

@Nakase will you share the Easter eggs with us, after we've spent some time hunting? I see lots of things that I'm like "oh, maybe that's something... maybe??" but very few 100% obvious things. I thought folks smarter than me would find more, but from the comments here we're all in the dark! XD
