Hello my gorgeous friends! Smile
It's me - heppen, again Big Grin

Just started working on new project, brand new skin based on Estuary.

The main idea of the Cosmic skin is to work fast and light while being innovative. I want to provide you with a skin that not only allows you to focus on multimedia content, but at the same time will not be in the way.

The skin is all the time [WIP].
I hope to finish working on it in the next few weeks.

For now, I can share some screenshots. It's not much and not much is shown, but the work is still going on Wink

I'm hoping for lots of ideas, hints and opinions!
I will try to keep you updated on the progress and any updates.

Greetings, have a nice day! Smile

# [ Installation instruction ]
Installation is easy... Just follow this steps.

You can install it via repository to provide automatic updates
Download repository: repository.heppen
Or install it via Kodi file-manager

or install it manually (updates should be installed manually), download this zip file and install it from zip
skin.cosmic

# [ Getting additional RATINGS working ]
You have to provide an API key in this addon, to make it fully working.
Follow this steps...

To get movie/tv show ratings working you need to get OMDb API Keys.
When you have api key, go to settings > add-ons > my add-ons > video add-ons > TheMovieDb Helper > configuration > API Keys > enter your API key there...
Then go to Settings > Skin Settings > Library > Choose ratings...
After it just restart Kodi.

That explains a lot :>
The home menu looks like your Flix Vew in the Resurrection mod, isn't it?
Is it becoming a Flix View + or something?
Looks very nice

Yes Smile Default home layout will be the same as a Flix View in AZ2: Resurrection. There will be also Horizontal layout, which will be totally new thing.

Thanks, looking forward to it
Looks nice, more Resurrection Smile

Would be nice and different from other skins if top fan art can be shown from left to right instead of corner only, similar to what RakutenTV is doing (just as recommendation).

Another suggestion is to have an option for widgets to limit the amount of content instead of managing this one by one. I think both options should be great.

Of course automatically trailer function on home screen for local library and addon content Smile

Different sizes of posters for widgets.. Netflix is having these big posters for their own created content.

Progress bar on posters instead of circle in corner..

Show widget row at right and left the posters partially.. at left more dim and similar to Netflix.

Colour option for titles text on home screen.. not just white but up to user to control.

Hope this helps pal but will let know if I have some other ideas.. but as always up to you which ones to consider Smile

Will definitely buy you a coffee Smile
I don't have PayPal Sad any other options?

It is very early stage of the skin, a lot of stuff will change Smile

I'm not sure if it's possible to do. Managing it one by one is there already.

Of course ^^ I hope this time I will implement this in better way Wink
 
(2021-07-27, 20:07)Rijs43 Wrote: [ -> ]Different sizes of posters for widgets.. Netflix is having these big posters for their own created content.

Basically aspect ratios? I will implement this from scratch since this skin is based on Estuary, so I can be more elastic in this aspect Tongue

Thanks for your ideas! There is a lot of work to do and I want to do things better than Resurrection this time. I made a lot of mistakes which brings me here, with new skin Big Grin
