I would have loved to have the option to customize the backgrounds. Like trees, waterfalls, and such. Does anyone agree with me?;)

I AGREE with you, but I'm not sure it's technically possible.

These backgrounds are full 3D renditions and are themselves pretty technical. The amount of complexity that goes into these kinds of backgrounds are pretty staggering. I would be very surprised if there was any way for MM to allow them to be modified. They look like renderings based on hundreds of thousands of polygons rendered into 3D space.

I think the best they would be able to do is allow good quality images to be imported instead of using the PSeye (which, to me, just isn't very good).

I guess I'm just asking for to much. But it would be cool. ;)

It would be more than cool, it would be freaking awesome-pimpness. But, unfortunately, as CC just had to bring up (Grr, mean eyes at you Cubbage), It would probably be impossible to implement.

I think it would be much easier just to ask for more backgrounds :)
Those ones they've made are pretty funked up ^_^
But what would be cool is if you could customize your own background, putting pictures on it n' stuff :)

Agreed. They need a volcano one.

They need a space backdrop!!! With comets and Magellan clouds and planets. It would be a cool backdrop to see through the windows (portals?) in space-ship themed levels, and you could do excellent alien planet levels too.

definatly level backrounds create the level!

Yeah I was thinking like you could take different item or items then pick what type of weather you want like have it raining or snowing. It wouldn't be just like how you create levels but rather putting different items (like rocks, houses, and such) and the weather would be so cool you wouldn't have to make rain (or mist rain) or snow and it would look more realistic. It sounds confusing but I hope you get what I mean.
