FM 2021 FLUT skin dark - Version 12.0

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.

You can do so by clicking the button down below:



Main changes in 12.0
- New player overview panel (now the player overview panel from FlutsKin FM18 returns but, of course, updated; and you have six options to choose in the drop down arrow; at least one of the options works well with DF pictures)
- Club overview panel tweaked, namely regarding the key players panel.
- Some bugs fixed
- That's it. I had doubts about releasing this version now, but given the requests related to the new Player overview panel, I decided not to make you wait any longer. Thus...I hope you enjoy it!!

Main changes in 11.0
• “New” game processing panel (top panel changed)
• “New” Team selection advice popup (width/height increased and player pictures and nation flags included)

Inbox content with competition review panel (right panel increased; left panel with larger logos)

based on the work of Rosek)

• Country locators updated (also by Qvordrup)

[color=#00369B]And now, you also can dowlonad FLUTSKIN v.10 for 2560x1440 screen resolution, due the great work made by ROSEK who adapted the original version for this resolution. Thank you ROSEK!!


Main changes in 9.0
- Face pictures included in team squad, team squad tactics, search panel, scouting list panel, staff teams and so on..
- Player overview tweaked (a new physical condition included as default box)
- Small tweaks here and there
- TV Logos included (following the work of Rosek, I included the TV Logos in match panel, line ups panel, league table in match preview and in the match caption displaying when a team score a goal)

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.

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!!

Also a special thank you for Qvordrup, Rosek and Evil-Muffin and other FM fans (I just highlighted Rosek and Evil since they are all the time available to help the people who like to play with FlutSkin and they are keeping the answers of questions and requests updated; however I thank you all!!!)

One last "thing": some of the screenshots of the skin are not updated (are from previous versions of the skin). Sorry for that but I have not time yet to update the screenshots.

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 12.0 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
    Thanks for reporting.
    I already fixed it.
    Regarding the japanese clubs, I will include it in the next release (I don't know if in the "regular" pack or as an alt).

    I have one minor wish for future updates: On the player profile where the kit with number is shown the shirt number of the player is displayed way too big. Any way to change the size of the displayed number ?

    Thanks.

    You can reduce the size of the skin download a bit by deleting the double kits here that servers no purposes:

    and here:

    Hello again FLUT - I presume since you just did the "match mid match review panel" in V 5.0 that there will be a "match full time review panel" in the next update?.......oh wait, I see there is a "match full time review panel1" panel in there.......do we just rename that to"match full time review panel"....I guess I'll give it a try and I'll find out.....thanks again

    Hi @flut

    Thank you for the great skin again for this year.

    I have a problem where the name & number on the player shirt are too big, they show up in end of season summary / commercial summary. But they fit OK in the player profile page.

    I figured out it is because of my resolution. My Monitor is designed for a resolution of 2560x1440. 4K is not supported. with Full HD the numbers are displayed correctly but it looks like shit.... So

    @flut

    Can you help me find a solution for making it work on 2560x1440 resolution?

    Good evening. This is also the resolution I use.
    I can send my files for this resolution.
    Unfortunately, directly from the site, the file is too big and I cannot send it to you directly. I tried but error 413 appears ...
    And I do not know how to make mediafire link.

    so if someone could guide me, I'm a taker ...

    I recently mentioned that an indication to the quality and creativity of a skin is in the size of the download file. A skin just released has a file size of 3.06mb. The Flutskin 5.0 is 128.7mb. I rest my case.

    You need to "pack" your files in to one with winrar winrar (just right click on the "top" folder and add to new archive), then upload the "packed" file to mediafire mediafire here

    Agree, for several years it has been my go to skin, can’t even start the game until released.

    @Rosek
    Thank you very much! It works. I have to ask for one more favor. In your file the Skin has club colour matched menubars. I want it to be black as it is on default. I tried to just exchange the folders from club colour bars to default bars. It works but then again the numbers are displayed wrong so it seems you changed also the files for the menu bars.

    Do you have any solution for it ?

    Sorry but I didn't change anything else ... I got help from the boss and read some of the requests and made sure it looks like something in 2560x1440.
