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)

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.

    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.

    Thanks 🙂
    Regarding you question, in the next version that "card" will be black 🙂

    Not that important. Flut is a busy lad, I’m sure an update will be released soon.

    Think quick subs back is more important to fix

    It's very important in the opponent indication when you must say to your players to try to let play opponent on wrong foot

    Yes, but i say the match indications ingame. Not all players play in the most famous championship. I'm in B championship of Belarus, with strange name of every player. I need to see the preferred foot on the popup quality panel. It's important also for market: if i've 50 shortlisted i don't want to open every card but i need ti see most important info in popup quality panel

    Fair enough, I rarely venture out of England, something I may consider when I get sacked by Leeds, which given my last 5 results is looking likely soon

    This is an amazing skin but I’m stuck with the logo player shirt number issue.

    I’ve tried your fix by removing the panels code but it still looks messed up. See below I need to make the shirt number font smaller and the players name needs to appear higher on the shirt maybe the font also needs to be reduced.

    On the Manager screen there is a clash with the age and info

    I’ve tried it both in full screen and windowed with side icons only and without but it doesn’t fix it

    My resolution is 3440 x 1440 on a widescreen monitor and I have tried various zoom levels.

    Last years skin was perfect but here are my issues see links is there anyway to fix this so it looks like your screen please?

    Hey FLUT - not sure where you're looking as I posted this note on another site regarding coloring the scoreboard:

    I can get the scoreboard team background (primary) / text (secondary) colors to work with the 6-letter team name, but not with the full team name update.....In the match score area panel, I changed the lines for "text button" "T1nm" and the "team button" "homN" from colour "black" to "secondary"......I have the background color correct, but the text that I changed from black to secondary is now the secondary color of the competition, not the team secondary color.....any advice?

    As always, thanks for enhancing my FM experience!!


    UPDATE: Thanks for answering FLUT......oh well, hopefully we'll resolve this mystery some day !!

    Do you know what lines I need to actually edit to reduce the shirt number font size please and the manager box?

    I know I can edit the text but I’ve no idea which line to change and what number I need to add.
