PVK Steam Skin

Hello there, I have started skinning the steam interface into the colours of the PVK forums. Its still a work in progress so ignore the icons around the screen which are still skinned in a dull grey colour.

    Make it look more pvkish. Add some features that make it look like it's from a mod that's about pirates vikings and knights. Right now it's just a color change. This could be good though, I trust you with it.

    I will probably make it more PVKish with the icons that are going to go down the bottom of the page. If the worst comes to worst I can add a sort of watermark as a background image.

    Its quite complicated and frustrating as the labels for some colours arent... labeled very well. Basically you go into your steam/skins folder, duplicate a folder, call it something and then modify numbers and images to change the colour and look of steam.

    Anyway, my steam skin is complete!

    enjoy...


    I think its decent but tone it a bit darker...
    Come on you pansy!

    Not bad...

    My only issue with it is that it is WAY to bright. It makes my eyes want to bleed. Tone it down so it's a similar color as the forum background.

    Better yet, use PVK a nice shot of PVK island as your background. That would make it look very nice smile.gif

    I see the general layout, but what would make it look real good is some wooden planks slapped onto there somewhere, yeah and darken the colors a bit. The color scheme and layout are making their place but the dark colors that default on some parts of steam are causing severe retina burn :x

    Now that I downloaded it and am using it, I must say the background is much to bright. It's hard to see the games on the game list sometimes. I suggest what someone else already mentioned: use a nice picture of pvk_island (since that map captures the beauty and feel of the game) for the background, if island doesn't do it, then use the pic that is currently used on the starting menu in PVK II.

    Bleh. What I ment to say was swap the current color layout, so that the darker areas are brighter, and vice-versa.

    Actually the bright are is much too bright compared to the forum colors. The darker shade can stay, but the lighter shade needs to be darkened up a bit. It's hurts my eyes sometimes. There is of course the idea of putting that start menu pic of the pirate, viking, and knight in the background. I think that would look really nice.
