So after seeing those new loading screen mods, I thought I'd give it a try. Therefore, the folks at NCI present to you this first of its kind (I guess?) widescreen loading background:

This widescreen backdrop contains over 60 different stills from the game series' Maxis-made families and individuals, littered for your enjoyment...while the game loads (especially for hours on end for those of you with tons of custom content, lol). Finally, a backdrop that will bring your game into the early 21st century, with consideration to all future widescreen computer monitors. IF, however, your monitor is 1024x768, expect to view something to this extent:

But if that's not the case, enjoy the view! As an additional bonus, NCI is offering a replacement title for the loading screen too...Widescreen Deluxe Edition logo, as seen below:

If you wish to download this, place the file in the same folder as the backdrop. The title screen replacement can be used alone or together with the backdrop originally offered here.
