Myriad Base Suite - SHOWCASE by AlbinoAsian Myriad Base Suite - SHOWCASE by AlbinoAsian
MyriadBase on Windows 7

________________________________________ _____

This SS showcases my second suite of skins titled MyriadBASE. The finished skins can be found here. MyriadBASE is similar to my previous suite Myriad.

I was inspired to make an even more minimal set of skins after coming across one of the best Visual Styles for Vista ever to be released - base by ~jg-visuals. At the same time I was making the transition over to Windows 7, and decided attempt a VS port from Vista. The first time I've ventured into the VS realm, and the first time I've released icons of any sort.


Elements
Win 7 Visual Style // base BETA for Win7
alternative for those on VISTA // the original base for Vista by ~jg-visuals
Wallpaper // Pink Starry Night my mod of starry night by *ether
Icons // Myriad Base Icons BETA
Winamp // Myriad Base Winamp
Rainmeter // Myriad Base Rainmeter
CAD // Myriad Base CAD
Skincalc // Myriad Base SkinCalc
Colorpad // Myriad Base Colorpad
Codepad // Myriad Base Codepad
Shutoff // Myriad Base Shutoff
3rvx // Myriad Base 3rvx (mod of PiX by Matt Malensek)
Same Game // Myriad Base Samegame
NES Color Palette // Myriad Base NES Colors
Destroy Twitter(not displayed) // Myriad Base DestroyTwitter Theme
Rocketdock (not displayed) // Myriad Base Dock
Snake (not displayed) Myriad Base Snake


Behind the Scenes - other little apps I have running in the background.
Hoekey // mapped winkey + (letter) to launch all my favourite little apps (skincalc, colorpad, codepad, notepad2, shutoff)
Desktop Media // creates a shortcut on the desktop whenever a USB drive / cd is inserted.
Magic Mail Monitor // checks my mail accounts
Wakoopa // tracks application usage
Resource hacker // couldn't live without this program for changing icons and things



Things to do - After I finish the final versions of the Win7 VS & Icons
Media Player Classic Logo
IconPackager Theme
Maxthon2 skin (50% finished)



Things I can't do - I'm really sorry that I can't skin everything. But if you want to skin something for the Suite then go ahead.
Foobar2k (love the program, but never could skin it properly)
MIranda (Pidgin is my IM program of choice)
Firefox (I use it, but Maxthon2 is my primary browser)



Credits
The credit and creative ideas for many of the graphics, colours, and other elements belong to jg-visuals.
Permissions to release this suite has been graciously granted from jg-visuals.


Thanks
~jg-visuals // for letting me to mess around with his theme.
*ether // for the nonstop flow of beautiful wallpapers
~DJHarbinger // and everyone else that helped to test the VS beta
~neilmccauley ~burnsplayguitar ~linearradiation ~Puigi ~Nittiyh ~kai27 ~Jundai ~G-SKY-CN // and everyone else that has commented or :+fav: my skins, it inspired me to keep going with the suite.
Final shoutout // to all the old school customizers, akka, nitzua, pep, pjdark, and the PF & Custo crew...and WinT if you're out there ;)

As I said in the message, I'm a huge fan of this suite and wanted to add some for the programs I use (such as Miranda) so here it is:

well you can still use most of the skins for the other applications, but yes it needs a nice VS to top it off =)

It's pretty different to what's out there, and I think that's what makes it so good. :)

Would you in the future be open to the idea of making various color schemes? For example, instead of pink, orange, white etc?

Anyways, keep up the good work!

:iconalbinoasian:
AlbinoAsian Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2009  Hobbyist Artist
yes there is will be different colors of the Visual style once it reaches FINAL release, and some of the skins like [link] have blue versions already thanks to ~kai27

orange is a good suggestion though. tell me what orange you'd like and I'll do it =) for in RGB or hex will do =)

:iconskarpskyter:
Skarpskyter Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2009
I think this orange would be nice:

R: 240
G: 158
B: 2

Oh man, I'm loving every part of everything. Great work! One question, though (that doesn't entail me begging you to do a firefox skin): I get a weird flickering of the top bar (with organize, etc) in Windows Explorer - any idea what I'm talking about? I was wondering if you'd encountered this before and/or knew of a fix. Thanks so much again, though!

:iconalbinoasian:
AlbinoAsian Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2009  Hobbyist Artist
yes unfortunately I've got the same problem... its because I set the bar to autohide however in win7 it doesn't work as well in win Vista. I would try some more but in the final ZIP I will definitely include an option to have the normal bar (non autohide) =)
