GeoKone.NET was just updated to version 0.99.66.
Background Image Setting
This version (actually previous version already) brings support for drawing over a background image, like demonstrated here:
Saving the background image is not yet supported, but you can always load it again after loading the scene from a local file. The background image setting is smart, so you can import any size file as the background and GeoKone will automatically scale it to fit the best target, and you can select how to fit the image to to your scene.
When exporting PNG images with background, the background images original resolution will be preserved, so you can set a high resolution image as background and then draw over it, and get same quality output if exporting a higher resolution PNG image.
One cool thing to try out also is exporting your current scene as PNG, then setting that image as your background and continuing drawing over it :)
Continous Tracing Mode
When the ‘tracing’ mode is set, toggling the animation will not clear the trace buffer anymore. This means you can pause the animation, modify your formations and resume animation to continue tracing over your previously traced buffer.
This enables to create this kind of beautiful images more easily:
