I suggest a STANDARD Format for thumbnails

May I respectfully suggest that ASOBO Use a STANDARDISED UI and Thumbnail display system !


Here are three screenshots from a single MSFS Session ..
as you can see from the Original Image ( at the bottom ) EACH Screen shows a different cropping and / or resolution of the Thumbnail.jpg

a) From the Hangar the Tailfins are cut off
b) From the Main Menu MAP Selection they are actually "Almost" correct
c) From the Livery selection screen they are Zoomed so much the aircraft barely fits.

I DO appreciate that people have different views / angles / Artistic design on these thumbnails but If you see my original post, that particular issue was caused by Improper sizing and My fault entirely But On advice from @boris_ Here, I remade All thumbnails at the size Instructed "you need to resize to 1618x582px to avoid breaking the UI"
But alas ... it seems the UI Has broken my correctly sized thumbnails ????
Can I suggest either a SINGLE UI LAYOUT or at least a "SAFE FRAME" Within the 1618x582 limitation

Many thanks
