Finished Skins

May 27, 2007 Proton link
I just finished up a skin:

* Changes a few parts of the hud.
* The radar has a strange effect where the lines seem to disappear depending on the background color (not sure how I did that).

I'm impressed, Proton.

Very nice! 1 thing though, most ships don't have 50 max non-turbo speed :P

That's easily adjusted and one can be made for every max-turbo speed.

I'd like to see how you carried this theme into the station and PDA.

Damn, that's too good :P
One thing that bugs me from the screenshots is the white background in the PDA menus, it looks a bit out of place, maybe make it more transparent? otherwise, TOTALLY AWESOME!

oy what are you using

software wise

@slime73: I agree there is something wrong with the white. But with too much black it all melts together, I am trying an experiment with actually adding more white to see if that helps.

@Lord~spidey: Just Photoshop. I'm a web developer so I'm just treating the skin like a web page.

I just updated the download link above. Version 2.1 fixes a bug with the player info window (k). The bottom of it was being cut off before.

BTW, these are some concepts for if the text color could be modded / user defined:

Deeper Blue:

Alien Green:

Very nice concept and implementation in all areas.
This is a first-rate skin!

C'mon all you other talented artists... there is an ancient saying: "Variety is the spice of life."
