Hey guys. Let me preface by saying that I'm just now learning to skin and although this is not completely new to me, working with Kodi skins is (I know some of the words, but I can't quite speak the language). Eventually, once I'm more comfortable with what I'm doing, I hope to start development on my own skin, but until then I've been learning by modding Cirrus.

Anyway, with that said I thought I'd share some of what I've done.

UPDATE (8/31/2015): New images for Showcase Mod and Landscape.

Good to see some action again in this skin thread Smile Your work looks good.
Maybe all together we can make something fresh out of this skin.

Thanks, after staring at it for a little while though I wasn't too happy with it so I made a few changes.

It felt out of place with the rest of the theme so I changed it to match up a little better.

Thanks. It's a been a little bit of a slow go since I'm learning as I go, but I'll try to contribute were I can.

That's awesome. I started doing my SexyCirrus project to expand the views in the gaming section, mostly out of part curiosity, and part of just wanting things for my purposes. I didn't know a thing about what I was dealing with and learned as I went along and by breaking stuff and understanding how. The element of discovery is fun. Keep at it. Smile

Thanks again.

I've actually been meaning to start getting into skinning for a while but just haven't had the time or the energy to get started. Wink

Anyway, I've updated the first post and added a download link for what I've done so far if anyone want's to take a look and make any suggestions. Just keep in mind it's really dirty right now and there's going to be things that aren't fixed yet (but it shouldn't break anything, it just won't look right).

Also, it has a different ID so you can add it along side another version of Cirrus.

Here's a short video showing the modded Showcase Mod.





The video was made using the video capture on my Nvidia Shield ATV. Ignore were the video appears to freeze since that was the video capture not the skin freezing.

Thanks tris20,

Right now I'm not opening this to the public (maybe in a few weeks if I get time to work on it). I want to, at the least, get all the video views finished before I release it to the public.

But yes, you will be able to turn off certain art work. Something already work, other things I just haven't gotten to yet and at the moment I'm focused more on layout than I am adding customizing features. Those things will be added, but since some of what I've done is major changes that is taking the majority of my time.
