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 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:


Main changes in 13.0
• “New” Player overview panel (nation flag included in titlebar; new hidden information, namely in ability panel; new player position comparison panel – now we can compare by each player position, clicking on the dots in the pitch; new tab with player statistics).
• “New” tactics overview panel (now it includes the front and back kits in the pitch – rotating animation; physical conditions included in the extra information view)
• “New” nation overview panel (much more information in three panels including 13 different tabs (examples: board confidence, last starting eleven with front and back kits, season summary, team injuries, etc)

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!!

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

based on the work of 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 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.

    try this one. It's taken directly from what I have at home and it works. 

    But the “flut card ”and “flut stadium” views, I didn't modify them. I only did the first one.

    Rosek, my friend, It doesn't help if you want to do it quickly, quickly for us users.

     

     Well-intentioned advice: Take a few days off from skin modding and then try it again at your leisure. Nobody benefits from it this way, and the tests take time.
    Is really buddy advice!

     

    I use now the official Download Version, until all errors have been finally resolved.

    Your Version worked (10.2), but not with the other two options! (look at Pic 1 & 2)

     

    Pic 3 all is okay.

     

    And a screen with my setting (Pic 4)

    I was a great fan of this skin for FM2020 - superb. The Flut skin for FM2020 had really nice thick outlines for the players kits on the tactics screen so you could see which player was green and which was orange when changing positions really easily. But in this Flut skin that outline has been reduced to almost a single pixel wide - you just cannot see it anymore so cannot judge whether a player can play that position or not as easily as with the default FM skin (or the FM2020 Flut dark skin). Is there any way you could please make this coloured outline thicker so its easier to see. I use that a lot in the game.

    Ok. Thank's for the pictures.

    Let's try to see where it can come from... Have you tried the same procedure with the original settings? ( I know the original skin is ugly). Do you have the same problem? If yes, it is not from the skin...
     

    If not, try to set the visual settings of the game like this:

    If you still have the same problem, finally try to re-download the skin for your resolution, delete the one you have and replace it with the new one and see what happens... 
    Unfortunately I can't help you more... Sorry

     

    tried all that as well , still doesn't show up. really strange but its been like that since day one of the game, i know they added it in later on but ive never had it 

     

    thats what my match screen looks like

    Okay. I get it now. I thought it was during the rewiews that he didn't appear... .my bad. ME and my English... 

     

    Unfortunately this year, as @flut  says, they didn't add that. 

     

    This is a shame because if you have to leave your screen for a moment ( 🚽 or 🚬 for exemple 😉😉) and something happens, well you can't see what happened...

    Hi Flut and Rosek.

    Thanks for bringing out a new update to your skin.

    I have changed the logo for Guinea in the graphics/logos section and I have also changed it in the skins/graphics/pictures/flags/big but in game I'm still getting the other Guinea logo as per jpeg. Is it possible to let me know how to change the four logos (arrowed) for the logo (circled), please?

    Thanking you in advance

    Change the logos with arrows for the one circled.

    You should have the new nation logo in a folder with the config like this (see below) and make sure that this folder will be read before the others

    Good evening. 

    It seems that you don't have any faces in your "graphics" folder of the game. Or they are misplaced.

    If it's the 1st one, there is a very complete one here, on the site

    If it's the 2nd one, you have to check again your files locations...

    He is using a skin that is mixture of other skins called Mozaik v2.1 that was released back in December. I assume he is asking what panel is required to be edited so he can have it similar to what this this skin has already.
