zz Pipe

zzPipe is a recreation of the classic 3D Pipes screensaver that used to be included in versions of the Windows operating system up to XP. It builds several pipelines on your screen simultaneously, in various colors against a solid black background, and slowly rotates them. The number of pipelines being built on the screen can optionally be customized, and both "Rotation" and "Nodes" (which connect individual pipes) can be toggled off.

Been looking for this. I ran it for a while, but it never produced a teapot. It can't be the real thing without the occasional teapot at a junction. 1 point deduction.
It is also very fast today. Good for eyeball excercise.

hahhhhahaaaaaaaaa i found it, and it is AMAZING, because ive heard a rumor going that this screen saver was included in windows 2000 and ive been on the hunt for this for sooooo long. But the only thing i dont like about it is that its really laggy, i donno why but it isnt smooth at all it jitters for some reason, for me atleast.

Its great, but it only works on one screen. Would rate it 5 stars otherwise.

Screensavers Planet: It has since been updated to support multiple monitors.
