Artist's Note

yeah yeah I know this took quite some time, but dang I love the outcome!

How do I get this added to gaia.customize.org?

I'm buissy as hell with work so time for custoing is really rare, so I also won't be doing any other matching skins or icons or whatever ...but I'd really love to see other people doing ports and additions to this!

fonts are included, I used a blank font to get rid of the username in the startmenu, so install em if you don't allready have em!

PS: from what shit I'm reading on here I'm quite happy I wasn't that active these days ....you people should stop bitching allready and start ignoring who needs to be ignored!

...oh I forgot...this was still based on minimal classic by static- so credits to him!
also credits to toki_doki whose concept inspired this work

fixed a bug where I forgot to replace some toolbar buttons, thx to bernadinho for pointing it out

oh my god...... this looks very nice. I like that shade of green a lot. A mod if GAIA Icons would work so well. Excellent!

yeayuh. looks smoooth. very refreshing amid the bullshit that has been the past few days here. +love.

as far as i've seen the submissions that appear of the front page of gaia.customize.org have never changed. the link to my samurize config is even dead bc i reuploaded. your best route would be to just add it to the gaia bundle/group.

nitzua says:

also, you can enable/disable the user name on the start menu in stylebuilder, or set the font size to zero...your way works fine over here tho :)

I tried to figure how to add this to the GAIA suite Tobias, but still i got no idea. PM to Lamp or Revird.

BTW, great vs, again.

Sun, Sep 2nd at 09:58am (10 years ago)

amadme: I tried to recolor GAIA icons so they were green like the ones in your preview of this vs.

It doesn't work out for me, how is it done?

aMADme says:

ah ok...open the pngs in photoshop, double click the thumbnail in the layers panel to get to the blending options, then use color overlay, choose your color, and set blend mode to multiply, then just transfer em to iconworkshop or any other png to icon converter

Sun, Sep 2nd at 10:22am (10 years ago)

Thank you, I will make an icon pack for this great vs

thx mad for adding some great stuff, this site has seen a lot of crap lately.


Sun, Sep 2nd at 10:28am (10 years ago)

Oh, I'm very happy to see this vs released. I really liked it, since I saw it in that ss. Weird, yesterday I remembered about it and almost sent you a message asking if you had abandoned the project. I'm glad you didn't. I wish I could have spare time and knowlegde to make a winamp skin to match it... =/ Thank you

hover states are lacking, for things like radio buttons and checkboxes. they make me feel like they're disabled, when they aren't. i think the buttons could be more prominent (though i love the orange mouseover text). i always like to have at least some sort of demarcation for list and comboboxes, and for me it feels incomplete without it. small things like tabs and the placebar feel like they could use more detailing. this is all just my personal opinion of course, so take it how you will.

that said, this is beautiful. great job, and 'grats on finishing.

This is such a great skin, favourite part of the skin is the start menu. Love the skin, gonna be my skin for September. :)

Sun, Sep 2nd at 12:04pm (10 years ago)

well...this is beautyfull,very good skin!

aMADme says:

thx everyone, I just updated it because there was a bug in the quicklaunch

personal preference I guess since the radiobuttons and checkboxes are my personal favorite and wholly fuck that mouseover text was still orange from wobachi....tho I guess I leave it for now :)

I once read that if an artwork is changed to more then 70% or to a point where the original author can't recognize it anymore it doesn't count as a modification anymore, tho I still felt like crediting ;)
