Get the Gant Icon set by Mattahan. There are many ports for the popular IconPackager application, one of which is available here: [link]

Wow man you should be proud of yourself this theme is one of the cleanest, nicest themes I have seen yet! I love it even more when you take the time to go all out and skin other programs! Bravo man bravo. Keep up the good work and I look forward to anything else you do.

I love it.

Any plans for a Firefox 1.5 skin to compliment this? Or iTunes? *wink wink*

Only problem I noticed was that Outlook was blanked out from the toolbar down. I could not see any email. Nice skin, but that must be fixed for me to use it.

Nice to have a full suite again! I only have 2 gripes: the explorer toolbar buttons are not up to the standard of the rest of the theme, they have a strange jaggedy outline and aren't particularly well designed imo. Also, the start button looks a little out of focus compared to the high contrast used for the rest of the theme. Maybe include alternate start buttons for those who prefer an emblem or icon to text based buttons?

To resolve Opera issues: go into display properties and change font size to large. This will make the font readable. Then change it back to normal and your opera text issues should be sorted!

I love it except for the issue with Firefox b/c I use FF & with the tabs being blacked out I can't tell which is which. It's a shame I can't use. Still one of my favorites though.

Joseph,
After reading your post, I'm not sure it's a color issue. I went into the Windowblinds Config & set Outlook to have a completely different skin to run it (per app. skin choice) and Outlook still wouldn't open up, evening trying to run a skin to which there isn't usually a problem. Is it possible that there is a glitch in the theme? As well, I have, as I'm sure you have too, used upwards around over 100 skins. However, I have never had this problem with outlook, even with many dark skins. . . . just a thought.
That being said, this is still an absolutely incredible suite! Thanks for all the hard work.

Great skin, but it screws up Outlook (Will not show anything but some of the toolbar icons!?).

Outlook uses windows classic colour scheme to relay its graphics. Sortof cheap, but that being said, the colour scheme used in VisualPad doesn't work too well with Outlook. I don't design my themes around Outlook, so expect some Colour issues. Unless I make a theme that is similar to the windows colour theme (in terms of tones) then there will be colour issues. Especially if a application forces colours on certain text. EG: Firefox has colour issues as it forces its tab colour to be black, and the VisualPad suite has black tabs. That doesn't mean I'm gonna make my tabs bright so you can read the tabs in FireFox. So, I can't really help you with outlook unless I redesign this theme. Sorry.

I don't have that issue with my Firefox, i'm using the Smoke (Orbital) skin and it works perfect with this theme.

However it does seem to make the status bar on my Firefox huge.. but it's easy fixed by turning it off.

Awesome awesome awesome :) One of the best iv seen in a while, though Im not to fond of the buttons. Would look better with a plain blue border like the close,minimize and maximize.

still great work

I like it a lot except for the outlines around the explorer buttons. Not that I'd have to deal with them, since I use xplorer2, but still.

Looks good, but does not work well with Opera Ver 9 on my system. It screws up the menu fonts, they be come little lines. Hope you can fix it, I like them dark.
