------

It's been a while since my list visual style concept. I was always excited for this visual style ([link]). Unfortunately, from what I've heard, it is now a canceled project. So I thought I would put my own take on a similar style using some references to replicate it with a few changes.

Hopefully one day I'll be able to transform this into a fully working visual style. (Even with my 0 skills of WSB.)

Thanks to

Is it possible we can get a version of this theme that is basic and doesnt use Aero and transparency?

How is project going?
I think that it's the best dark theme I saw so far.
Most sucks, not like this, it would be cool if you could change that orange strap to other color.

Anybody have nice dark VS?

wow looks great! I like how certain things are coloured while everything else is black and white, it really looks cool and makes a nice contrast. I think this would be the best Windows theme if you released it. also, it looks like something I could see Microsoft actually using for a theme... nice work!

I like the changes you have made, you are going in the right direction. As much as I like the orange color, I am glad you removed it for the selections, as it not meant to be used everywhere. Some suggestions:

1) Show desktop button: I feel it will look better if it is the same color as the taskbar itself.

2)The orange icon bg in the address bar: Feel like it should just be a part of the address bar, and not colored differently (if you understood what i mean)

3) The address/search bar icons (refresh, go, etc) stick out like a sore thumb, but I am sure you have a plan for those. The ones used in SolMiler's Glass Onion ([link]) look really good, maybe it will match this theme?

4) The "selection" background on Computer in explorer -- Wonder how it would look with sharp rectangle edges instead of the rounded edges.

Will keep checking back for your updates because it is starting to come together really awesome and the colors are awesome. Top VS candidate of the year :)

Thanks so much for the ideas and criticism.

1) show desktop will probably be dark like the taskbar just hadn't gotten around to making/adding it.
2) Yes I do understand what you mean, I'm pretty sure in my initial release, I will have changed the address bar icon to black or so.
3) Yeah, the go/refresh is the original w7 icons, and I do have plans for making my own custom icons.
4) I think i will stick to rounded selections, the sharp ones might feel to "sharp"

Thanks so much for your support.
Also I might make revisions to the taskbar here. Depends on how I progress.

I think the icon button on the address bar that is orange should be black honestly, since its too distracting and draws too much attention when it is not important. Also for the back and forward buttons, what do you plan on making them look like? Also for the refresh/search/drop down icons on the address bar?
Reply
:iconrenacac:
Renacac Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2012  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Back and forward buttons should look like what I have designed in the preview. As for icons in the search/address bar. I'll think of something that should work/look nice. Thanks for your support and feedback =D

Yeah, i did think about the Orange Icon button being "distracting" I will experiment with black after I start implementing more into the theme.

If this is doable then its really great so far. hope you can have exact same theme as in mock-up. On my word of advice- show desktop button orange color is good for mouse over state bu if its normal state then its a little distracting. Good work so far.

:iconrenacac:
Renacac Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2012  Hobbyist Interface Designer
All should be doable except im not sure I can get shadows right on the command bar. Show desktop on the task-bar is probably going to be black instead of orange. Thanks!

Yep, as seen in the bottom preview, just put most of explorer together through Vista Style Builder, now called Windows Style Builder.

I love the caption buttons mate :)a sleek small space between them and the actual border makes them stand out.
Not loving the whole glassy glossy thing with selected items .. but everyone have their own taste :)

Thanks, by dark, would you say, the background for explorer being dark aswell as the frames? Right Now I've got the dark frames running, which is here to stay. A version with the Dark Explorer would take more time to create the images, but we'll see how my first version works out for now.
