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.

    @flut Great Skin, thanks!
    🙂

    in 3d Match - i feel, the Goal Score Screen somes a little bit too fast, that he goes away - how can i set that screen like 2-3 Seconds longer to see. That would be fine.
    + how can i disable the permanetly Screens? i know from older FM Games, that we can choos if we want to have Screens enable - and when yes, which one.
    In the Screen you can see - two screens permanetly enabled.
    we can switch which one we want, but i do not want any of them, i want to see the Pitch, that´s it.
    🙂

     

    Click on the Picture, then you can look better in Details…

    +  right Side, the Scoreboard a little big bigger - that would be fine

    + when i click left on Tactic/Changes - then not the tactic Screen comes ( i mean the Player on the Pitch Tactic Screen big in the middle.)

    Just for a laugh I had a brief look at what my FM21 would look like without the Flut skin and switched for 5 minutes to the football manager original skin.  Never again!  The quality that the @flut skin  adds is astonishing - almost like a different game.  Thank you for all the hard work.

    Hi. Thanks. Regarding your questions.

     

    1. I don't know how increase the time duration of that panel.
    2. For the left bar you just have to click on the clock once (if you click again taht bat will be displayed again); the bottom bar, you just have to click on the drop down arrwow that is located above the word “bank” (in the bottom right)
    3. this I didn't understand. However I don not intend to change the scoreboard.
    4. When you are in the tactics screen (after clicj on tactics/Changes) you should click in the top left of the panel displayed in order to maiximize it, showing the pitch.

    @flut  since Version 11.0 are the lines on the field blue. Is that a mistake? I am in the winter and they are playing with the orange bal

    The Name of the Panel? which is for showing after a Goal scored. Then i will check, if i can find inside a detail for Seconds for showing in the Game.

     

    Scoreboard right top (Sky Bundesliga) - what i mean is, to use this, right, but the logo to change in bigger size. Because this too smal for me. by the way, the same logo works fine in Goal Scored Screen, but also in that too small. so, maybe it is possible to change in that goal scored Panel + the Panel for showing right top a logo in bigger size and the goal scored Screen longer showing.

     

    left Side - i can not disable the two Screens - and you can see, no clock or anything else to disable - only a drop down right but with that i can only change to which other Info, i want to show…

    Hi. I didn't change anything related to the 3d match. Thus, nothing related to the skin. Maybe is because the snow….

    The file is the match caption panel small.xml (I already tried some changes without success).

    Regarding the logo, you can do it bigger editing the picture. If after that the logo appears cut you just have to go to match title bar.xml and increase the value of height="26" in line 85

    The panels: for remove the left panel, click on the the top grey box.

    If you also are using the panel with the picture in the left, do the following

     

    Change the values of left in this lines of code (don't forget that the last two should hace the same values) in player overview panel.xml

     

    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="left" inset="104" />

     

    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="left" inset="-46" />

    Hi @flut Really love the latest version 👍

     

    I just have two small things that I would like to change (I play with 1920x1080 resolution):

     

    1. the SS' kits are cut off by the sleves.
    2. the logos are not the same size (trained in nation are bigger than trained at club)
