Pioneer is a space adventure game set in the Milky Way galaxy at the turn of the 31st century. The game is open-ended, and you are free to explore the millions of starsystems in the game. You can land on planets, slingshot past gas giants, and burn yourself to a crisp flying between binary star systems. You can try you hand at piracy, make your fortune trading between systems, or do missions for the various factions fighting for power, freedom or self-determination.

Hi WKFO, that looks lovely! I will pass this on to the Dev Team. Nice work! :)
Also,with your permission of course, if you do a high rez version, I could put it in the image gallery too.

I don't know your timezone but it is possible we can encounter in the IRC channel if this is what you mean by notifying the dev team.

I will try my best for a high-rez version.

It looks great WKFO! I've uploaded it already to the gallery. Many thanks! I love adding things to the site people contribute because Pioneer lives or dies on what people are willing to put into it.
If you would like more screen shots added to the gallery then please consider adding them to this thread: Spacesimcentral.com
You will see that I already posted your box shot on there for the devs to look at.
As for the IRC channel, do feel free to use it. The devs themselves can sometimes be found on there or on Space Sim Central. Pioneer also has it's own Dev forum where the Devs hang out. You can find that here: Pioneerspacesim.net
I don't count myself as one of the Devs as I just maintain this site for them, but if they get back to me about your box shot, I will post you a message here.

Thank you!

Misunderstandings :)
I meant I usually hang around in the IRC channel if you don't want to flood the comments section by talking about this here.

Well, the devs must be busy, so I just went ahead and added your box art WKFO. I think they will like it, I know I do and I think it brightens up the site too. ;)

Don't worry about that WKFO, I don't mind the comments section getting used here. In fact it's about time it saw some more use! :D
Anyways if you do bump into any of the Devs over on the IRC, feel free to link them to your images and this conversation too. For what it is worth, I hope they agree with me as I'd like your image to be the new box shot for the game. :)
