[LAST UPDATE: 03/07/2019]
A little taste of everything new done until now. The Project is not dead but the progression is slow.
Sadly i'm searching a new job in order to provide the best to My Family as soon i will be parent and this task takes most of my energy and time.

3XperiencE1080 is a skin with focus on music, graphic design and customization and it takes inspiration from a lot of other skins.
The Project is still on 1080p without touch support (also if i'm planning to add a very basic touch support in order to make possible to navigate the home screen by touch controls)

I'm currently working on a custom Mod of the skin Xperience1080 in order to fit better my own taste and needs, the main focus is on music library and on customization.
Everything that's graphic feature is added and created from zero by myself.
The Skin Mod works, as the original Xperience1080, on a resolution of 1080p FHD and in future it will be ported to fit mobile devices and different resolutions.

I'm searching for suggestions and feedback from all the people that use or used Xperience1080 in order to understand better what to improve in the Skin and all the possible bugs:
Feel free to write down your suggestions, bugs that you experience with Xperience1080 or things that doesn't work as they are supposed to also into the original skin.
A quick bug check of the well know Xperience1080 Problems:
  1. Using the Music Widget (and not only) in the home page will change, when back, the control inside the widget itself making impossible to reach the right tiles of the page
  2. [SOLVED] The Overlay icon for watched movies doesn't work and doesn't show up
  3. [SOLVED] In Banner View the overlay icons about (watched, to watch etc...) are displayed in "no Focus" making impossible to understand if we already watched a movie or not until we will select it
  4. Sometimes the select dialog doesn't appear in a proper way (it get a normal thumbs view instead of the white/pop up select dialog)
  5. [SOLVED] Searching and reading infos on kodi repository will not give screenshots/thumbs of the selected plugin/addon
  6. [SOLVED] the appid of the selected addon/plugin is not showed

Main problem is that it's Im Possible to add custom homescreen or modify those already there.

For instance I have never needed pictures, sure u can turn it off but if we could custom them or add more then it would be a winner.

For me if have:

Live tv
TV shows
Movies
Music
Sports
Kids
Addons
Settings / system

I noticed that a lot of users really want to re-arrange the position of the home screen elements and, in theory, i think it can be accomplish by make every single element a Variable.
It sure require a lot of work but i think i can try to do it or check if it's possible.

Can i ask you what are actually the Sports/Kids tabs or from what addon are derivate?
Thank you for your answer

 The Dark Theme is still there and working like a charm also changing the fonts.
This screenshot is an example with dark theme with a the small new font selected and only right coloured tiles using everything by "skin settings" menu inside of Kodi.

Pratically you will want the possibility to add more categories for your own media: for example a page/Label into the Home Screen with the possibility to change the label/name/title of it and put your own custom media access to it.
That can be really interesting because i was thinking something similar (for example the kids section or something to allow also the little ones to use it with content safety)!
If i work on custom categories with the possibility to enable/disable them and rename them at your own pleasure with a page propriety similar to "Music" one can maybe do the trick (one squared banner/widget plus customizable buttons/addons/shortcuts). And i think i can really do it! That's a great suggestion!

Basically I mean I can add my own menu entries

Such as instead of music change it to Spotify and add a Netflix screen etc

And also it would be able to change the main picture (widget) on each panel and able to change each tile

Hard to show you what I mean with words lol

That looks really nice with the icons.
Can you make an option that you can see the plot when pausing the video?
Thanks

Thank you for your suggestion and reply. It can be a nice addition and feature the one you suggest about showing plot on pause and i will try do it right now!
Pratically you are asking to show directly the plot directly on pause instead to  go into the Information button on the player controls?
