Sadly no code with this skin as yet.Will add one if it gets posted.





I'm working on a nautical-themed re-skin of the KR interface.

I'm more inclined toward graphics than code, so I'm basically working with the default coded layout. I'll probably want to work with custom interface definitions later (as the default is dodgey anyway) but for now I'm just "looking at swatches" in a sense.

Much of this stuff is placeholder/experimental stuff - eg: the menu button styles are all over the place - so it's not very consistent. Basically I'm aiming for a general sea-faring feel, a UI that might appeal to fishers, pirates, etc.

Some points of interest are the porthole on the stat-bar portrait, the skull-n-crossbones war mode button (the red doesn't survive jpg compression that well, sadly), the seascape watermark in the current target gump (the one that reads 'Captain Blackheart'), the balustrade at the bottom of the screen, and the general feel of the timber/brass gumps, particularly on the paperdoll.

Any comments/crits/suggestions would be appreciated, which bits you like, which you don't, chuck out/throw in, scrap, burn, whatever. Please excuse the biggish picture as I tried to preserve some detail.

Since I don't fully understand how this all works. Take this with a lot of salt.

I don't think so. I believe it will apply global to all your characters unless you tell it not to use the custom UI when logging in.

You can have a different UI for each character, although it will not "save" it for each. The way it works is that on the login screen is a drop down menu box that will let you choose which UI skin to use. The same drop down menu is also available in the options screen in game, which will let you change UI skins on the fly. :)

Hopefully, in time, someone will host a website dedicated to UO UI customizing. Where we can discuss, upload/download UI skins, etc. :eusa_pray:

Cheers!

Let me just say that this is awesome! I love it!

I like the Skull and cross bone war/peace mode and the character portrait.
