FM 2021 FLUT skin dark - Version 16.0

Dear all

This FLUTSKIN version 16 is the final version of FLUTSKIN for FM21!!

A great thank you to all FM fans who choose to play with FLUTSKIN and always keep me motivated to still improving the skin and gave me new ideas!!!

A special thank you to all players who decided to distinguish my work with a donation!! Although just a small part of FM Players who use the skin made a donation (I edited the skin as a hobby and, as you know, completely free), I always feel honoured and happy when people recognize the work done and decide to contribute. So, I reinforce, I have to give a special thank you to that friends of FlutsKin!!!!!!

Also a recognized thank you to those one who help me answering the questions and requests and adapted the FlutSkin (namely and specially Rosek for the help to answering questions and the adapted version for 2560x1440, and Richbell, for the adapted version with hidden attributes!!!!! And, of course I don't forget the skinners community who also indirectly contributed to FlutSkin with their creativity.

Also a special thank you to PATRES10, from fmslovakia for the 2D default kits (especially tailor-made for FlutSkin) anf to Michael Murray since I started editing the match inbetween highlights panel based on his amazing work!!

Now is time to stop editing the skin for this season. I wish to return for FM22. Lets wait and see since no one is able to predict the future.

MAIN CHANGES IN v16.0
- Following the great idea of majesticeternity, Tyburn and a31632 (from Sports Interactive community) I included in several xmls a code for personalize the background in specific panels, namely club overview, player overview, board room, human profile and team training. These codes are not “activated” by default but if you want to have a different (customized) background in each one of that panels you just have to activate the codes. In the read me file I explain how you can do it.
- Nation overall panel
- Nation overview panel
- Human profile panel
- Player profile stadium option in player overview panel
- News panel

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 can also 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 can also download the sortitoutsi Backgrounds Megapack HERE

As always FlutSkin is completely free 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.

SOME ADITTIONAL NOTES:

PLEASE NOTE THAT MANY SCREENSHOTS ARE FROM PREVIOUS VERSIONS OF THE SKIN

FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO MAKE THE GAME MORE DIFFICULT, YOU ALSO CAN DOWNLOAD AN ADAPTED VERSION OF THE SKIN (V. 15) WITH THE ATTRIBUTES VALUES HIDDEN. THIS ADAPTED VERSION WAS AN IDEA OF RICHBELL AND, ALTHOUGH WITH MY HELP, IT WAS RICHBELL WHO ALSO DID THE MAJORITY OF THE CHANGES. THANK YOU MY FRIEND!
Please note that for this version working well (with hidden attributes) you should remove the original version of the skin.


FOR THOSE WHO USE 2560x1440 RESOLUTION YOU ALSO CAN DOWNLOAD THE ADAPTED VERSION (v. 16.0) EDITED BY ROSEK

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


Important note regarding TV LOGOS:
Although the default tv logo is the one I use, of course you can easily change it; for that you just have to go to skin/graphics/icons/tv logos. In that folder there is a alt folder with many TV logos. You just have to replace the tv logo.png and the tv [email protected] for that one you want. Of course you should rename the new logos as tv logo and tv [email protected] You also can use other logos made by you. The procedure to use them is exactly the same. However, I should remember that yo should use logos with the right height. For tv logo you should use 25px and for the @2x you should use 50px.


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 16.0 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.

    I guess mate well fingers crossed both he and flut can get their skins back to how they want them because for me football manager isn’t the same without their skins. I hope sports interactive realise one day that they put out the product but it’s the hard work of all the modding community that takes the game to the next level.

    Well, I guess he wasn't happy with it because he's pulled the link to the skin permanently now, until fixed.


    Yeah you're right just checked and looks like he has.

    Spot on mate, the skins make the game far more enjoyable. I hope SI put out a minor update next week which will enable every custom made skin to run much better.

    Hi
    I solved my logo problem.
    For that I took my logo folder from "pictures / logo / comp / normal and I put it in my" logo / comp in which I had the "balls" of the nations. And with Notepad I modify the config by adding this:

    "graphics/pictures/comp/1/logo/background/right"/

    Hoping that's what you're asking for.
    Because for the latency, sorry but I would wait for the update from the chef who does a fantastic job. Let’s be patient.

    HI all: I believe the skin now is running well. I believe I fixed almost all the problem regarding that annoying problem. Please test it and let me know if is running well. Ad thank you all!!!

    In meantime, as you can see, I did some more tweaks. The major was in match scoreboard. I believe you will like it (I still couldn't find how colour the names of the clubs but I believe is okay as it is now πŸ™‚)

    cheers

    This has to be accelerated the game !!! Well done.
    But hey, I must redo the modifications of certain points that I know as the icon of the club between the shirts, the size of the names and numbers. So nothing insurmountable ...

    It now seems that Rick has given up on the Andromeda skin due to a yet unknown reason. I guess there is more to life than FM. In the meantime it seems Flut has cracked it with v2.2 !

    Thank you all for reporting the fact that the skin is running well now and for your support!!
    I also have to say that is a shame if Rick quit editing the skin since Andromeda is one of the best skins for years. Maybe he reconsider (Iremember a few years ago he also thought to quit but fortunately he didn't do it)

    RoseK: I don’tknow if I understood. If so, try to go to graphics\tables\custom\squad\outside squad\row.xml
    And change the colour name in the following code

    <colour id="red_replacement" name="squad_outside"/>


    Sheffield Hammer: maybe you should clear the cache, exit the game,keep only this skin in the skins folder and reload the game (don’t forget you should not keep the older versions of the skin)

    Hello. Sorry for my English but I use a translator because it's not my native language at all...
    On the transmitted images, there is a white veil when I do not select the players ( fond blanc) and which disappears when I give a position to the player ( apres selection). I wanted to make this white veil disappear.
