Realized I never posted the follow up on my previously mentioned plans. I actually commissioned the creator of the original flash
to create one that's bigger and better. You can get the gist of it by looking at that; this one also looks around the screen while the city scrolls by behind it.
I also rearranged my desktop and made at least one minor but significant modification.
To briefly revisit the topic of Dreamscene: I only seem to have occasional issues with it freezing up(just the video, nothing else) when the resolution changes. Not every time, but due to a sound issue when I unplug and replug my monitor sometimes I have to restart the video. The black text on all the icons is also a result, but it's only like that because I'm too lazy to do the single step fix each time I have to restart it.
