A custom loading screen featuring the original base game logo and an official banner image.

This is made for and tested on 1920x1080 resolution. You will need to try yourself to see how it looks on other resolutions.


The design is inspired by the Clean UI while the colors are matching the original UI.
The background is an official banner that I've upscaled and edited a little.

You might notice that the bottom row of the squares doesn't have the dark blue outlines on the inside. That is on purpose so that the scrolling text can be seen without being covered.

Pick one:

With Menu
This file has the loading screen AND the background for the first neighborhood selection menu that comes right after the loading screen.
HOWEVER the menu background only works properly with the Clean UI. If you're not using the Clean UI, you should get the "No Menu" version.

No Menu
This file only has the loading screen. You won't see the background in the first neighborhood selection menu.

You should place the package file in the UI folder of your base game install location. NOT the Downloads folder.
