    How do people make fancy QBAM backgrounds?

    I imagine they draw them in the same programs they use to draw on the maps themselves- often Glimpse (or its relative the GNU Image Manipulation Program), Paint dot Net, Clip Studio Paint, and the like.

    A Sound of Thunder: The Rise of the Soviet Superbooster

    Not gonna lie, I think it's going to be a while before anyone's considering Mars missions as more than just interesting proposals :P

    A Map Shitpost Thread

    I feel these are less shitposts and more just random jokes people find. Not that that isn't appreciated, and it'd be silly to try and police the definition of a shitpost, but....
