Better Looking Grophs (posted 15:14)
Although we create Groph images out of images with many thousands of colours we have always saved them as 256 colour GIF images for reasons of file size. Although this makes Grophland run faster, especially for those of you on mobiles and slow internet connections, it also creates pixillated images in many cases, making some combinations of clothing simply unusable.
Well no longer! Grophland now creates both lower-size and higher quality images of Grophs, and chooses which one to show based on whether it thinks you are on a mobile or normal browser. In addition you can visit your user settings to choose to override these defaults if (for example) you have a slower internet connection and always want to see the smaller images.

Thank you to everyone who contributed new Themes, I think the ones we have ended up with are brilliant pieces of work!
But now it's time to turn back to items. This time I'm looking for people who might be able to help re-draw some of our most out-dated art, clean up some blotches on the landscape (some mine) and improve the overall quality of item art.
