    Hi all, I've been away for a while - work!!! :( Anyway, I've just read through the latest posts and I'm in the process of fixing/changing a few things for ya :).

    While I was away I decided to do some playing in Photoshop and came up with this... It's basically Monochrome/Ingigo but with 3DMP-Blue style icons and slightly different graphics...



    It's currently using Buuf icons etc, but I was thinking of changing to the Tango style icons.

    Looks really nice, even though these small pictures doesn't really show off the Basic Home icons that well.

    *cough*AEON2PORT*cough* :D

    I really like the font and the "polished" look you've got going on your buttons.

    That's great news ! Especially for the colored icons. Indigo is my preferred skin and I was about to ask you how to create new icons, to give a more colored look. Thank you ! You guys do a great work !

    I like it. Since you are re-doing all the images, would this be a chance to migrate the skin to 1080?

    @ Cruzer - no chance of 1080, for now anyway - my plate is toooo full.

    So peeps, what's the general thoughts here....

    Yet another new skin release, or should Indigo get a more modern visuals overhaul...?

    First of all, Psycho Reptile, I would like to thank you for your great work and for this fantastic skin that you created. Guys like you and the other skinners/devs make MediaPortal look like a piece of art. I found about this media center software last year and ever since I'm addicted to it. A few weeks ago I tried to alter/change few of the icons inside Indigo skin, to make them more colorful, but finally I gave up. I wanted to add a little of yellow and green on them (that kind of green that you can see at the "Drive space available" plugin), but instead I got some ugly icons, with gray. I don't know why. I changed them, pixel by pixel, in Paint, I don't have any professional software. Anyway, my thought is: I would like to see Indigo with some nice color icons, and fanart oriented. I know that this skin has a default background, named "background". Is it possible to see different backgrounds for different parts of the skin ? For example, when I check "Weather", it would be nice to have a photo with a shiny sky and some clouds, or something else that makes you think about weather. Also for "My Movies", maybe we can have as a background a photo inside a cinema. Few other skins have that. These are few of my thoughts. Again, thank you for the great work and dedication.
