well ... The background picture would adjust themselves automatically depending on the season
You can vote yes before the landscape
what exactly should appear for a photo

So you could take the image the town for the winter
The picture of the beach for the summer
Sun would need only 2 other pictures for the spring and autumn

Oops, this is a major error.
How did you come to this picture?

I just purchased the Ultimate and switched to Seaside.

I don't see any regatta though. :D

That scene looks remarkably similar to some of the areas around my locale except for the palm trees.

Change the palm trees to Pines and the trees on the right to Apple or Cherry and you would have the Okanagan Valley. :)

Ah, I didn't realize this was an error or I would have reported it sooner; I thought you guys were having a little fun.

As best as I can remember the boats seem to move fairly quickly when this happens, so maybe it has something to do with the wind speed. I know the wind was strong when I took the screen capture.

Dear Sirs.

I would like to book a chalet in your new Seaside Landscape.

Please could you send me a brochure. ^-^

love Pamela

:idea: I often watch the 'mother-in-law's-tongue' plants in the right foreground. Nothing so far... They look interesting, as if something is meant to happen. A wandering beetle perhaps? Also the parked boat-masts in the marina move; this is fun. ^-^ But when they do, the ropes appear to flicker, even on my highest quality...
YoWindow logo is a bit big in new commercial version...
The 'regatta' is an error? If so... please do not fix it!!! Yay regatta!!!
Otherwise, perhaps he needs to clean his computer cache/registry, etc, like I did when I saw too many meteors that one time...

XxXx!

Pamela, thanks for your comments we are working on new features that will make Seaside even more fun.

Guys, I still cannot reproduce the regata bug.
I've been playing with the high wind speed and still was not able to repeat the bug.
Does anyone know a stable way to repeat it?

Okay, it looks like the wind speed doesn't necessarily have to be high.

All I do is just let YoWindow run for awhile; about thirty minutes to an hour or so. It seems the higher the wind speed the faster it happens.

Here are some screen shots showing different wind speeds:
