FM 2021 FLUT skin dark - Version 13.0

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 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 13.0 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.

    @flut 
    Is there a way to enlarge the area available for the tv logo….struggling to fit certain logos in, unless they are made small to fit the height allocated.

     

     

    Hello. 

    Yes you can increase the size of the logo. It changes here:

     

    <!-- Logo Options-->
     <widget class="icon_button" id="inst" icon="icons/tv logos/tv logo5" label_disabled="true" alignment="centre" icon_alignment="centre" height="100"  appearance="">
     <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="right" inset="-1200"/>
     </widget>

     

    This increases the line it is on but, be careful, it reduces the height of the shelf.

     

    NB: The values ​​in this line are those I put for a 2560x1440 resolution.

    Same question asked previously :

    Is your problem only in 2D view ? Or it also happens in 3D view ?

    Try to make a soccer match in 3D and let us know if that also happens.

    Hi Dazs8. Yes you can do it. I use that height in order to don't steal much space to the match in between highlights panel. But you can do it in match title bar.ml. In the following code, increase the value 26 (that's why I suggested that if you make a new TV Logo, use 25px for height).

     

      <widget class="icon_button" id="inst" icon="icons/tv logos/tv logo" label_disabled="true" alignment="right" icon_alignment="right" height="26"  appearance="">

     

    oh. Sorry I didn't see that Rosek already answered this (although for the other resolution) 🙂

    Hello boss.

    I hope you and your family are doing well.

    I noticed that on my calendar, modified with the colors of the club, the information that I am highlighting for you does not appear in the panel of the day. I suspect that it is necessary to change the colors but I look for and modify as I go along when I see "gray" written, but nothing changes ... 

     

    Could you help me ?

     

    Hi Rosek

    I never edited that text, but I believe is this xml, in the follwing code. Replace the colour name for that colour you want. This file is for game folder of the skin.

     

     <widget class="text" id="newT" alignment="left,centre_y" multiline="true" style="semi_bold" colour="processing_headline">

    Thank's. I look at this.

     

    I am thinking of putting the secondary color of the club and having the writing be in the primary color.

    So, for example, Strasbourg, which has the same colors as Porto, the boxes would be white and the text blue 😉😉

    Not neccasarily….you can download the megapack from here now which includes all backgrounds needed.

    I stopped updating my old packs and now work solely on this pack.

    Its a huge pack but covers all the bases….includes Stadium outside and inside views plus cities for Flut skin….as well as Person backgrounds and more.

    Hello tommov2. For your match sheet problem, you will need to modify the match team news panel.

    I send you mine which works well enough for the resolution 2560x1440.

    Make sure you have the skin in the root skin folder, looks like you have the skin in a version 9 folder. If you have cut and paste it 1 level up, load fm, select the skin, clear all cache and then reload skin

     

    fingers crossed
