I'll edit this when I've seen it, but for me so far, I'm going to miss the old barn cat. I made a nickname to him so I could just talk to him while the game was loading.. when I was alone ya'know. SaddleRider (creative right?) But which one do you like more? Vote above! I personally haven't seen the new one yet, but it seems really cool to change with the seasons.. but does that mean it's scenery or animal life? I'm going to check for myself in a second xD I'll always miss poor saddlerider, he mus have taken a liking to the indoor life... x3
Edit: I've seen it now ans the picture is really nice =) But only one tip per loading screen? It seems a bit harder to understand the game as a newer player...

I'll miss the cat for nostalgic reasons but I wasn't too fond of the pink. With the changing loading screen I think it'll fit in nicely since you'll get to see some awesome artwork of horses before you log in! We still have the cat for the "to be continued" pop up so he's not gone forever! We just won't see him all the time. It would be cute if he were to be somewhere in the game

Awww. I'm gonna miss that kitty too. If you are familiar with the original Star Stable games, than you probably know the original company called Pony Club (later renamed to Penny Girl) as well. One of their mascots was a light ginger tomcat - Felix. He looked somewhat differently than our loading screen cat, but I always had those two connected. I haven't seen the new loading screen either, but I wish there were more art pieces it could switch between (similarly to the tips the "Felix" used to give us). No that I think about that, would that slow down the loading process remarkably?? One picture is going to get boring too, once we see it engough times (/are forced to watch it all the loading time). (Don't get me wrong, I really like the picture we can see at the website - that's what I've been told they used. I like it a lot. If I could download it as a screensaver or as background, I would totally do that )

I was just telling a friend today (looking at you Race, I see you beat me to this thread pfft) that I was eating some chips and choked because the new loading screen totally surprised me. Apparently it was in the news?? I skimmed, I'm not the best at paying attention when the news doesn't usually say much, my bad. In any case, I certainly prefer it over the old one. The pink was often blinding, and though the cat was cute we don't interact with the cat in game so it makes less sense then having a rider and her horse on the loading screen tbh.

I really don't like the loading screens, I don't know why. I might be because I don't like that image or something, I mean, its already on the SSO website, why do we need it again? They added new advice which I'm happy about, because then there's something to read while you wait. One thing I'm thinking about is the seasons, since all seasons are different in the world (Like when its winter in the USA but summer in Australia), won't some people be angry? Or are they going to change the loading screen for that part of the word?
I did like the old cat, maybe because its just I started with that loading screen, I wasn't too fond with the pink, but I could live with it. I also really liked the Art Style of the cat and how it was always on the saddle (Why couldn't they just change the saddle every season and keep the cat? Or just add new advice?)
Well, old cat retired now, maybe he'll come back to the game sometime (But ey, he's still there when you buy a membership? Right?)
I like how everyone mentions the pink on the old loading was blinding, but I'm over here literally screaming that it wasn't blinding on my screen due to the fact I always have contrast and brightness low cause my eyes hurt from looking at bright screens XD
Anyway, I see people prefer the new loading over the old. I'm an old player over here, I've been playing for like 2-4 years, and I always said hey to the cat whenever it appears on my screen :,)

The Barn Cat was cute, I suppose, but I had mixed feelings about it. Back when I first joined the mix of the glaring pink and a random cat really put me off it and I feel like the current loading screen reflects the beauty (both scenery and horses) of the game more than the old cat. I'm sure they'll find places to put the cat instead, though! It'd be cute if there was a similar-looking cat hanging out in a hayloft or two in the various stables.

I voted for the new screen, I really liked the picture during last login. I wonder what the next picture will look like. The cat was cute, too, but I only played for a few months, so I wasn't as attached as some other players here. I had seen about it in the news letter before I logged in, so I was prepared and not falling off the couch

I see a lot of people like the new screen more. And yeah, I can see why that is. I kind of agree that the pink was a bit much (but that might also be a bit of a biased opinion from me: a person who doesn't like pink much). I've never been a fan of hot really, but it works in some places. I think that was the main factor for a ton of people, but another possible reason is because it wasn't as much to look at? I was just that: the cat. The rest was just color and that's the part of it that stood out to everyone. I think the season changing will be an interesting touch, but it'll become less and less enjoyable if they continue using the same images every year. For now I'm still excited to see what they come up with in the next seasons. Basically all loading screens are a bit... you know, but it looks nice. It's a fresh look for now until it becomes a normal thing to us.
