With SFOS3 it's now finally possible to set black color for foreground color in light ambiences, as SKD requested. Does the latest update cover that?

The new darkonlight color scheme is applied only to selected ambiences, namely:

- Ceres
- Earth
- Kepler 16b
- Venus

Thank you for this funny ambiances! Is there a full version of melody setted as sound of alarm clock? (I found it 29 second version on NASA site)

-- I found full version in this video (start's at 1:45)

Very nice!

But there's one Problem: For example in the earth ambience you can hardly see the information on the top of the screen (time, battery percentage, network information). Would it be possible to change the font color to black for very light ambiences?

Unluckily it's not possible (it's a known issue already reported on tjc). I suggest you to install this patch to add a tint to the status bar.

Thanks man, looks awesome and installed it already since I have no clue how to resize pictures to be fully used in an ambiance instead of it just being cropped more themes would be awesome. By the way do you know how to force the system to use the full picture given it as ambiance? Really have some cool pics even the ones from trulyyours sitll get cropped and barely used.

Hi, Sailfish OS 2.0 uses square images as ambiences. If you want to use ambiences from earlier versions of the OS, you should crop them via the 'Edit' pulley menu entry or on your pc download the full-size picture and edit it via an image editing tool (I use Gimp) to a 2048x2048px image.

You can find more on this topic on TJC tho :)

you right man, it almost used the full picture for the ambience after I resized it on my pc. the edges of the pic on the left and right were still chopped off, thanks for the help, I appreciate.
