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.

- 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.

    Hello. 

     

    For changes to the box colours, this is done here in the "FM21flutskin_Dark setting" file, in the following lines:

     

    If you modify your colours in the game settings, the colours will be visible here:

     

    Hope to have been useful to you.

     

    Thank you so much this worked!! I think i had accidently deleted a line as I was only getting 3 colours instead of the 4. But can confirm its working now after editing the settings file. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

    Hi Flut, you have designed a very useful skin, congrats. And the comunity should be thankful.

     

    Im having an issue tho, that in the player profile screen, the capacity informations isnt showing completely. I tried to clear cache, to leave only flut skin in the “skins”folder, and nothing fixed it.

     

    Could you please try to help me? (i attached a print of the screen im talking about)

     

    Another question, is there any way of editing another skin to show CA/PA?

    Hi and thanks.

    Regarding your question, I don't know what happens since in my game evrything is okay (as you can see in the screenshot below). Maybe that panel doesn't work well in your game because most of the information are related to hidden attributes, only visible if you have the In game editor…but I really don't know.

    Regarding your other question, I don't know if I understood it well but if so, the answer is yes, you can include the CA/PA placing the code in the right place in the right xml.

    Hello

    I really don't know why it happens. I believe is due tha fact that that information is mostly regarding hidden attributes. I play with Ingame Editor and is okay.

    Try to clear the cache exit the game and reload it. You can also try to download again the skin. And keep only this skin in the skins folder. I believe is some kind of conflict….

    I've a feeling us the users of the skin has helped with the various tweaks required and maybe helped motivate Flut to keep it going.

     

    He has added so many great updates to the game's looks just from within this skin, i was over joyed when the purple was removed 😀

    Hi Evil, Mag1lc2 and all of the skin supporters

    You are absolutely right.

    This year I edited much more versions and to that all of you have contributed with your requests and suggestions, keeping me motivated to continue trying to improve the skin.

    Thank you all and enjoy the Version 15.0!!

    You don't need any alt. You just have to choose “Profile Flut Stadium” in the drop down arrow in the top right of the box with the player picture (in the top right of the kits)

    You should play with icons only in the left sidebar and not with the large sidebar on the left (you can change the view in the preferences of the game).

    Thanks FLUT for the amazing skin!! Can i know how to remove this panel?

     

     

    Thanks. For that, you should click on the match timer once (that bar will be removed and it only will be displayed during match inbetween highlights).

    You don't need any alt. You just have to choose “Profile Flut Stadium” in the drop down arrow in the top right of the box with the player picture (in the top right of the kits)

     

    Thanks for your answer… and your great work.
