To celebrate its increased popularity and sustain its current momentum, the next few months will see the rather naffly-titled Summer of Aeon. Ending with the release of a feature-complete beta version, every weekend will see at least one significant update, be it to the website, backdrop library or the skin itself.

This thread is intended to replace the old backdrops one, not the main Aeon thread. In an effort to keep that thread as coherent as possible, please post anything web or backdrop related here.

To get things underway, the first update will see the Mods page of the website go online later today, with links to fan backdrop packs and ports of Aeon to other platforms. And in case you're wondering what happens next...

Street Fighter IV pack is up. Bit of a muted affair as I haven't got round to ordering the backdrops by date yet.

100 new 1080p backdrops just went up. Still haven't sorted out the ordering yet, though, so have fun finding them. Rolleyes

djh in the past (AEON backpack thread) you had mentioned that you might share your AEON photoshop background template, but I have not been able to find a link to this in the thread or on your website?

There was one, then it was taken down because Aeon's textures were entirely redone for 1080p. Any work based on those old textures would have been immediately incompatible. A new pack will go up just as soon as I can put it together.
