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.

You can do so by clicking the button down below:


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.

    Anybody able to point me in the direction of these two items please.

    On the Joey Barton panel I am wanting to drop the circled bar down.

    On the Portsmouth one. I am wanting to centre the club name text so that it can be seen.

    Sheffield Hammer:

    1. For club overview panel:

    change the value of top in lines 53 and 68 of the person snapshot club overview16.xml

    2. For player overview

    in player overview panel.xml change the value "left inset" in the following code

    <widget class="club_button" icon_enabled="false" short_name="true" size="15" font="fonts/BebasNeue Bold" alignment="middle,can_scale" auto_size="horizontal" colour="primary">
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="top" inset="20"/>
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="left" inset="20"/>
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="vertical" inset="0" />

    I've got an interesting issue that I've mentioned before during the use of the previous version (2.1) of Flutskin: Now I'm using Flutskin 2.2 and that's the only skin in my \skins\ folder. Yet, this is how the match stats show up in my matches. When I click the stats button during a match, the panel opens up and for half a second it's got the regular background, but then it fades into this almost transparent style which is near-impossible to see and read. 😢

    I actually got rid of the transparency by grabbing the left edge of the panel and dragging it to the right - making the stats panel a bit narrower. That made the background color reappear. Strange, huh?

    Hi

    Is not a bug. This is by default. When you are using the inbetween highlights during the match view (not during the comments only) thta panels change for transparent in order you can see the pitch and the match running.

    The best just got better ! Rick of Andromeda fame made a worthy attempt at an acceptable IBH panel because the default is a mess. No decent overview panel, sub panels too small to show full teams and subs etc. No pressure Flut my friend but to get even close to the excellent FM20 IBH panel would be a revelation. Regardless, as it is, there are no rivals. Thanks again !

    It just gets better and better, amazing work.
    One question - how do you get the teams league logo to show in the top right bar please

    On your example you have the Portugal League Logo which is a nice touch. Spurs also has the Premier League logo showing
    https://sortitoutsi.net/uploads/media/XPejgZw9zhlaiChqoIdcrUX9eotuQo020WxK0bjs.jpeg

    But on my games I only get the national flag for each team, if I take those out then it just defaults to the UEFA logos, would love to get all the local league logos to show on the teams as well.
    I have these logos in my logo folder but can’t get them to come into the skin like you have.

    Hello. Personally, for the logo of the league to appear, I created another "comp" folder by copying only the "normal" subfolder already present in "pictures" that I put in the "logo" folder where I already have my continents logos and nations balls logos. Then I modify with Notepad the output of the "config" by putting this: <record from="xx" to="graphics/pictures/comp/xx/logo/background/right"/>.

    Hoping to be useful

    Which logo file do you have? In mine there are 4 folders (picture 1).
    I copy the images from the "normal" folder and I move them in my logo folder (image 2), in my "comp" folder (image 3). Pui I replace the config.

    It worked for me.

    Sorry for my English I use a translator because it is not at all my native language ...

    Good evening.
    Glad to hear that it worked.
    For my part, my logo file is very complete since I took the one that is present on this site..
    I did nothing more than leave all the logos together (clubs, competitions, continents, ...).
    I just modify the config folder with the boss's tutorial ;-).

    Hi all: Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
    I hope you enjoy this version 4.0 of Flutskin. It's still warm because I just finished editing it lol
    It includes some new panels and some changes relating to some requests and bugs reported. I was totally immersed in the match inbetween highlights panel on the last days and I believe that now is much better than the default skin.

    Next step: editing the match mid time and the match full time review (this is only my intention...not a promise 🙂 )

    Yep its great work.
    I think the config misses the logos for Africa and Asia but I don't play those leagues so it's great
