FM 2021 FLUT skin dark - Version 8.0

NOW THE SKIN IS TOTALLY COMPATIBLE WITH 1920x1080 SCREEN RESOLUTION AND 4k (windows display settings 200%; game 100%).
YOU SHOULD USE IT IN FULL WINDOWS, ICONS ONLY


Dear all
I’m proud to introduce you the FLUTSKIN (dark version) for FM21.

I would like to thank you all the fans who contacted me in order to know if FLUTSKIN would be released this year and gave me additional motivation to hard work on the skin.
I hope you like and appreciate the work done.

As usual, the FLUTSKIN is completely full of changes when you compare with the default skin.

The Skin pack also includes:
1. “Round country flags”, “round continents logos” and default logos specially made in metallic style by @Qvordrup from sourtitoutsi. Those graphics will be displayed in the title bar.

Thank you @Qvordrup by your great work and for your collaboration!!!

You can download the 2D packs prepared for Flutskin (titlebar and player overview panel) here in sourtitoutsi. FC style kits HERE; SS Kits style HERE
However, if you prefer edit your own kits, I also included in the pack a .pdf file explaining how you can edit the kits for Flutskin.

If you prefer SS'kits you can download this and replace the kits folder located here:
Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\skins\fm2021flutskin_dark\graphics\pictures\kits
HERE

The logos in country locators are now updated by @Qvordrup according the last version of metallic logos.

You also can download the stadiums background megapack and the citypics released by @DazS8 (thank you, my friend) HERE and HERE

And @geordie1981 has made a pack for inside "small" stadiums HERE

You also can download the sortitoutsi Backgrounds Megapack HERE


As always FlutSkin is completely free[/b] to download and I hope you enjoy it. However, if you want, you can reward my work donating whatever amount you wish. Any small amount is really appreciated.

Once again I would like to thank you to all FM Fans who support my work and also to all skin makers. A special thank you to PATRES10 from fmslovakia for the 2D default kits (especially tailor-made for FlutSkin).

Also a special thank you to Michael Murray since I started editing the match inbetween highlights panel based on his amazing work!!

Resolution requirements:
This skin was made to work properly in 3840x2160 (4K with windows display settings 200%) and also 1920x1080 (1080p) full screen mode, sidebar icons only. As a result, some panels won’t work properly in other resolutions.

How to add Flut Skin in FM21
Download and extract the .rar file (using either 7-Zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for Mac).

Place the "fm2021flutskin_dark" folder here:
Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\skins


  • Create the folder "skins" if it doesn't exist.
  • Start FM21 and go to Preferences screen and then into the Interface tab.
  • You should see FM 2021 Flut Skin dark - Version 8.0 as an option in the skin drop down of the Overview box.
  • Hit the Confirm button.



  • Please note this skin is provided as is. It has nothing to do with Sports Interactive or SEGA and won't be supported by them.

    Hi. Great skin. There is only a problem, in my opinion. It's very difficult to see the prefered foot, and foot ability in the player card. I think it's important in tacticts panel expecially

    Immense skin as always. Been waiting for this.

    One small issue I've noticed, when the game is processing, things like trials ending and agreed transfers are very hard to see on the white background. They're fine if you click the actual calendar button

    We 've been waiting this from the first day, beacause it's the best skin of FM for many years now. Great job once again! I applied it but neither team backgound pic, nor Stadium overview and inside pics and city pics are shown. Any ideas?

    First of all I would like to thank you to all of you for your kind and generous words!! 🙂 I also thank you VP. for place the link for download. In fact when I upload the file here in sourtitoutsi I receive a message reporting that the file is to big. Untill that problema is solved, you can download the skin here

    http://www.mediafire.com/file/04cg2jq8gar6p2o/fm2021flutskin_dark.zip/file


    Now, trying to answer the other questions:


    stuartw1985, R Charlston, Kfihu: Some other players report that problem. I don't know why it happens since in my game everything is okay. However, try to clean the cache and keep this skin only in the skins folder and please let me know if is okay. However, if the problem remains maybe is due your skin resolution. Then, do the following:

    go to panels/generic/kit icon16 and delete the following code

    <widget class="picture" id="pict" scale_picture="true">
    <boolean id="keep_aspect_ratio" value="true" />
    <flags id="image_alignment" value="centre" />
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="top" inset="-43"/>
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="left" inset="128"/>
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="vertical" inset="0" />
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="105" />
    <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="mnpc" />
    </record>
    </widget>

    watta75: In future versions I will try to include it also in other places. In fact I tried to include it in all of the view options of the player but only works when I place it in one of them. Regarding tactics panel…can you explain a little bit more because I didn’t understood (or place a screenshot, please).

    Woking Hazard: For the next versions I will take a look on the game processing in order to try to tweak that “problem” you reported. Thanks.

    einherjer83: thanks. Regarding the kit/logo I already updated the pack. You can find it here (and also clicking in “HERE” in the presentation of the skin)

    Spybus09: thanks. In fact I don’t know what happens in your game. Since in my game everything is okay I can’t help you. However you can try clean the cache and keep this skin only in the skins folder of the game.
    You also can try to download the megapack here

    Excellent work, no FM without Flut skin!

    Any chance you will do some more work on the match title bar? Would love to have longer club names there instead of the short ones, and also maybe background colours to match the two teams.

    Thanks 🙂
    Regarding your questions: I already tried to do both of them but for now, unfortunately I couldn't found how to solve that problems (6 letters only and the colour of the teams...). Of course if I find the solution I will include that changes in the next versions.

    Thank you for the great Skin!! Enjoying it!!!
    Is there any chance to remove the broken emblem & the 2 shirts as shown since they often blocks the head of my player`s background image.https://scontent-itm1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p180x540/128105695_10207753637355300_911256975383398589_o.jpg?_nc_cat=102&ccb=2&_nc_sid=730e14&_nc_ohc=WkB47Sa9Ee0AX_7vtNY&_nc_oc=AQmyOYlf9nM_tWGSe1J-_xu_1PF3N_aQKaP3rS7P0AMW2VZ4AvWn_Tb6jKrqyjneylQNEwl_4pwC6b5c6X6kiKH_&_nc_ht=scontent-itm1-1.xx&tp=6&oh=ee3f6d300497b3310a06c9cefa5b2437&oe=5FEC7EE4

    If you want to remove the wrong badge do the following:

    go to panels/generic/kit icon16 and delete the following code

    <widget class="picture" id="pict" scale_picture="true">
    <boolean id="keep_aspect_ratio" value="true" />
    <flags id="image_alignment" value="centre" />
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="top" inset="-43"/>
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="left" inset="128"/>
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="vertical" inset="0" />
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="105" />
    <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="mnpc" />
    </record>
    </widget>

    For removing the kits it's more difficult and I can't explain you since if you remove them the text that are below will jump for the place of the kits.

    this meaning that the is name too big or too small (I don't know exactly). However you can adjust it in panels/generic/kit icon14

    Edit the following code, namely the value of horizontal (use trial and error strategy)

    <widget class="label" id="bNAM" size="11" alignment="top, centre_y, can_scale" font="fonts/kit name" colour="secondary" >
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="top" inset="45" />

    As you can see, it's impossible to know something about prefered foot. Also i try to change with all avaible options there is nothing about foot. So, if i've to choose player (unknowed player - i know messi is left and Ronaldo is both)i need to enter the player statistics and change another card again. I hope to be clear, sorry for my english
