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

Main changes in 12.0

- 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 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.

    In the download Package from v12 there are a folder called “Flutskin 12 alts” (Alternative files).

     

    There you´ll find many alternative files for every taste, i.a. Flutskin 11 style files.

     

    Please read the readme in this folder.

     

    Much appreciated @Mag1lc2 !  Thank you

    Hi to all. 🙂

    very interesting: i use a Screen 2560 * 1440 curved. When i use the Rosek wqhd Version, something wrong, no really 100% fine ( example 2d Kits Overview in Player Panel..)
    when i use the Flut Version, everything is fine - i only change to 90 % Zoom, then it is perfect.

    Thanks both for your works !

    Hi

     

    For the skin works well you should use sidebar icons onbly (the narrow sidebar on the left - only with icons and not text) and play in full screen mode (not window mode).

    maybe the issue is with sidebar icons+text which is automaticly enabled in both Versions (Flut Version and wqhd Version)

    but i do not have test that, with sidebar icons only for the wqhd Version.

    maybe that is the Issue for using wqhd curved Screens - and then it works…

    but at the Moment, the Flut Version works fine with sidebar Icon+Text ( and with 100% or with 90% Zoom)

    Have tried it with sidebar “icons only” in preferences, which is always recommended and stated clearly in comments regarding the Flutskin ?

    Hi

    Thanks 🙂

    I don't know if I understood your questions. But if so…

    1. If you play with icons only (as Bartdude told you) the text still be overlaped?
    2. If you are talking about the “collar” behind the kit, you can remove it but if you don't have a 2d kits adapted for Flutskin in a certain club, the front kit will not be displayed since that “collar” you see is, in fact, the default front kit (it appears because the Liverpool kit have that kind of style). In that option you use (I suppose is profile flut card) you can remove that kit, deleting the following code:

                       <widget id="cKie" class="kit_icon" file="generic/kit icon41" scale_picture="true" image_alignment="centre" kit_zoom_level="2" priority="1">
                           <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="top" inset="0"/>
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="left" inset="-89" />

         <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="10" />  
                   <record id="object_property">
       <list id="get_properties">
        <record>
         <integer id="get_property" value="Pers" />

    Hi

    You can reduce the size in match commentary.xml, decreasing the value 20 in the following code

     

     <integer id="size" value="20" />

    Hi all

     

    A few tweaks in the player overview:

    1. Nation flag and nation name in the titlebar
    2. much more information in “ability” (in the screenshot is the second box in the middle row) for those who play with Ingame editor and want to know hidden attributes (since this information is regarding hidden attributes)
    3. Comparison (the right box in the middle row) - finally I found a way of include the comparison  by position. Since, as we know, the button doesn't work anymore, now we just have to click on the  circles/dots in the pitch (the effect is the same as the former button of FM20 which doesn't work in FM21).
    4. The kit numbers have now much more definition

    which file is responsible for the fact that you can watch highlights of matches, for example from some competitions?

    Hi all

     

    A few tweaks in the player overview:

    1. Nation flag and nation name in the titlebar
    2. much more information in “ability” (in the screenshot is the second box in the middle row) for those who play with Ingame editor and want to know hidden attributes (since this information is regarding hidden attributes)
    3. Comparison (the right box in the middle row) - finally I found a way of include the comparison  by position. Since, as we know, the button doesn't work anymore, now we just have to click on the  circles/dots in the pitch (the effect is the same as the former button of FM20 which doesn't work in FM21).
    4. The kit numbers have now much more definition

     

    It sounds really nice, I´m looking forward to the new version! 👏

    would there be anyway to include hidden attributes in the play profile page as an option ?

    Hi

    Sorry but I didn't understand. Can you explain a little bit more and place a screenshot? Thanks.

    Yes. If you look at my last screenshot the hidden attributes are there, in the second box (from the left) in the middle panel.
