FM 2021 FLUT skin dark - Version 15.0

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.

Main changes in 9.0
- Face pictures included in team squad, team squad tactics, search panel, scouting list panel, staff teams and so on..

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 15.0 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.

    Did you realise that the stadium for Leicester City Football Club (LCFC) is showing on Lincoln City Football Club (LCFC) club screen by mistake.  Not sure little old Lincoln Town would be able to afford the King Power stadium!

    That has got nothing to do with the skin. You have downloaded you backgrounds from somewhere and it is there the problem lies. If you use the background pack provided from your site here : https://sortitoutsi.net/graphics/style/17/google-earth-stadium-backgrounds , then it will look like this:

    Hi. That problem is not related to the skin. In my game the stadium is Gelder Group Sincil Bank Stadium. Maybe in the season you play the club (Lincoln) are playing in the Leicester Stadium (for instance if the Licoln stadium is under remodelng). But as I said, this is nothing to do with the skin.

     

    hello flut

    maybe you know what to do to hear the sounds of the club's fans during the match, as it was in the previous games in football manager 2011,12??

    I guess you should change it to 85% zoom and icons only on your sidebar 

    your resolution is 1920x1080 I suppose?

    The skin is designed to work with the game's zoom at 100% and your screen's zoom as well. If you change either of these, there will be lag problems.

    1/The skin is designed to work with the game zoom at 100% and your screen zoom as well. If you change either of these, there will be lag problems.

    2/ The skin is configured to only show icons on the sidebar. This also causes lag. To fix this problem, go to the game settings and check this option.

     

    3/ To make the jerseys appear on the players panel, you need to make a second file, in your game graphics folder.
    Copy the one you have, rename it and then modify all the "config" files inside using the PDF provided by Flut.

    Hi, thanks for a great skin!

     

    I have a question, 

     

    How do I edit the color of a players name in the team view screen for when someone is either on loan at a club, loaned out to another club, on trial or put on shortlist?

    Good evening.
    You have not downloaded the kits for this panel. You can find the way to do so in the description at the top of the page...
    There are 2 types of kits: ssk or fc.
    Depending on which one you use, be careful to match the background (what you see right now). And to modify it, you will find the file to modify in the "alt" folder.

    It is not included in the skin update for the 2560x1440 resolution which was, in fact, just a small graphics offset adjustment. 

    Maybe in a future update of the original skin.

    I have a ton of custom  kits and generally a lot of kits that are not available here.
    I do not want to use anything else, I want to use the kits that I have already in place here “\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\graphics\kits”.

    Or better if it could just use the kits shown under “Club Info”.
    Is that possible?

    Fantastic dude. If it would be possible, some of us would love to have a optimized version for 2560x1440. I'm sure this is a lot of work but I think many people nowadays  are using 32" monitors. Therefore it would be so great when some of you guys could make this happened (donation guaranteed) :-)

    Fantastic dude. If it would be possible, some of us would love to have a optimized version for 2560x1440. I'm sure this is a lot of work but I think many people nowadays  are using 32" monitors. Therefore it would be so great when some of you guys could make this happened (donation guaranteed) :-)

     

    If you look at the top where the download button is, you will find that there already is a version for 2560x1440 👍

    I know but there are still some things to fix. I already talked about the problems some posts before 🙂
