Nice work Smile

TBH the skin looks great as it is - nice and simple, so usable as more than just a base.

Cheers,
Jonathan

Looking good, Hitcher. Great initiative - 'Empty' is a tad outdated .. just a tad. Smile

I started my skin using Empty, then Dharma was released which created unusual bugs that wouldn't shift.
Confluence is just too unwieldy to use as a base and packed textures are another hoop to jump through.

This is perfect. Can't thank you enough.

Hitcher,
Is this the new skin you mentioned that you were working on when you released "Final" version of Alaska Revisited or is that still to come?

That Screenshots folder in itself will be invaluable for first time skinners.

I spent far too long trying through trial and error to figure out exactly which xml file I needed to edit for each little part of the skin.
