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.

    Fantastic skin as always. The only thing I am editing, is the scoreboard. Ive got a bit of OCD and ive messed about with the size of text etc.

    The only thing I am struggling with is the team names. I like to have the full team name in the scoreboard rather that an abbreviation. Can you point me in the direction of how I can do this please?

    Any help you can give me is much appreciated.

    Dan Wardill: yes, there is a problem with the upload but you can look at one of my posts and find the alternative link fr the skin.

    Sheffield Hammer: unfortunately I couldn't find how to do it yet....that's why the skin maintain the 6 letters names..

    mysterio: you can use THIS but if you don't use the SS default kits, the images will be overlapped. However, if you want, you can use the FC Style pack I updated in HERE

    Hi Flut,

    Excellent Skin as always. Just have a question on the Man U page. The border down the left hand side is red for united (as per screenshot) but is dark for all other teams (and I prefer the dark). Is there a reason Utd are this way - is it linked in with the licensing issues and why we can't have badge etc.

    Just one little problem @flut: I play a white-red team and the search field is white. So the font is white on white and you can't really read the names you're searching for. Will send you a link

    https://i.imgur.com/uQT2Oz4.png

    it would be great if you could choose the font color just as the background

    Dear all
    You are placing lots of questions and requests. So, I have to beg you:

    1. Please report bugs and place screenshots to better understand them
    2. Please read the thread befor posting because it already started the same thing that happened last year (some questions were already answered and is "terrible" to see many repeated questions)
    3.Try to not make requests just because you prefered or like something, i.e., try question with "common sense"
    4. Please be patient if I don't answer quickly

    After all, this is only the first version and I know it can be much improved but ... slowly (my time is not only dedicated to the skin and it is not infinite).

    joemcf09: you should have the packs with the stadiums and don’t forget the mini stadiums pack.
    mattafc1234: thanks. for delete the wrong logo 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>

    mysterio: as soon as I can I will upadte the kits pack with greece

    mush2015: thanks!! 🙂

    SteveWise106: Thanks. In fact when we play with a club, the sidebar matches the colour of the club, for all other clubs is dark. Maybe later I will do na alt for sidebar. However, for now I have to finish the chanages and bugs reported. When the skin will be in its stable version I will start with some addons (alt files).

    DaveCillo: Many thanks. However, the light version still have to wait untill this version is stabel and “concluded”. This year I have no much time to work on both simultaneously. Sorry… Regarding the bug you reported is now fixed and the fix will be included in the next version.

    Not to worry. 🙂

    One other thing, when on the player profile screen, is there any way to get rid of the word "Player" that's written in black text just below the comparison drop down?

    Thanks

    you can go to player overview panel.xml and in the piece of code

    <container class="bordered_box" appearance="boxes/bordered/standard/paper" red_replacement="" priority="1" colour="black" dont_set_embedded_title="true" default_height="-5" id="plfz" minimum_height="20">
    <translation id="text" type="use" value="Player" />

    change for

    <container class="bordered_box" appearance="boxes/bordered/standard/paper" red_replacement="" priority="1" colour="black" dont_set_embedded_title="true" default_height="-5" id="plfz" minimum_height="20">
    <translation id="text" type="use" value="" />

    However, in the drop down arrow that option will be without any title.

    Thank you for posting the skin this year as well! I was hoping that you would. My personal favorite.

    Question... How do you change the background color of the scouting report email? Mine is white, something I'd like to change it to something darker if possible but I don't know enough about the in game editor.
