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.

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.

    Hello @Rosek 

    Thanks for getting back to me. Yes, sorry about the screenshot. Now included below.

    I currently use 3840 x 2160 (at 110%) as it's the resolution preferred by my PC, but yes, I have tried other resolutions at different % but they do not fit my 28" flat screen well at all.

    I only use skins made by Flut and have never in any previos version of 21, or even earlier years, encountered any problems what so ever usig his skins on my current PC.

    From what I have gathered from other problems posted here I do have a resolution issue, but I am not technically competent enough to solve my own puzzle in this case. So, hopefully the screenshot, my current settings, and my screen size will make sense to a friendly soul on here. 

     

    Anyway, thanks again Rosek

     

    Hi

     

    The best resolution is 3840x2160 but with 200% in windows  display settings (and 100% in the game). With that you can enjoy all the skin potential since my native resolution is also 3840x2160. I edited the skin for 1920x1080 (for that, I changed my  windows display settings to 200%) only because most of the people use that resolution. If you use it, you should use the original FlutSkin and not the adapted version.

    Hi @imba#7241 
    First of all you should use icons only in the side bar (see screenshot below).

    When it comes to the kit view I'm not sure, but using the 2D kits for the Flut skin would be a good start. But do read through the OP. Quite a few pointers there, and also in the previous discussions in this thread.

    which file and line do I edit numbering on uniforms? I've moved everything, and I didn't find it...
    another detail, is it possible for me to remove the background image from the stadiums, and leave everything as a background?

    Hi

    For editing the kit numbers, please read my comment (not the last, but the comment before the last).

    Regarding the backgrounds, you should use the alt client object browser.xml I included in a folder named alt for skin without backgrounds, which are included in the skin pack (please read the read me file in order to know how to install it).

    You should download the v16, completely remove previous versions and reload the game.

    Hi. I hope you are fine too. Thanks 🙂 Let's wait and see. For now, my intention is to edit the skin.... However, until the end of the year I won't have much time...

    Hi all

    Maybe tomorrow I can release the beta version of FlutSkin for FM22. 

    Of course I believe it have some bugs yet. However, I decided to release it since  I could import most of the panels from last year and then the skin can have almost all the improvements I did for FLUTSKIN for FM21! 🙂

    cheers and stay tuned!!

    Hi flut, that's fantastic news !  At the moment, playing with the default or the few pimped skins currently available is mind-numbingly dull with no immersion.
