Of all the pieces and parts I have added and played with in LMCE, nothing has been more stable and to me a sort of "token" of the system than my little tablet orbiter. Web Orbiter 2.0 looks amazing on my PS Vita screen, if I was a Dianemo user I would surely get the Red Line skin for my iPhone, and Qorbiter is looking pretty amazing as well for android users. The little black box that could is however looking dated I am afraid. Today on a much needed break from breaking my install I took some time to give my favorite device a makeover.
I can't seem to get Designer working on either of my main computers so decided to edit/replace/reload until I figured out where all the various pieces went. The results so far are linked below. They are pretty large images in order to see the detail in the icons so I am posting links.iOS themed skin, based on Titanium.iOS theme again with lighter icons
The second link is the skin I am currently using and will continue to tinker with. I need to fade the blue glare marks on the icons better so they look like reflections and not spears! Nothing fancy or too elaborate on the drawings, I stayed away from patterns and texture effects this time around. The 'trick' to icon spacing if that is what you are after is realizing that the placement always seems to check center lower in the cell it belongs to. As long as the image file is the correct dimension you can have as much of it transparent as you wish. Temped to put some non-public items on the 'more' page using 100% transparent icons...
If anyone is interested in these screens for their DT or anything else locked into 800x600 send me a message and I am sure we can work out a transfer method and a trade (I am always needing remote assistance and setup help lol). I also would be willing to personalize a skin as I did mine, all the icons are components I currently run:
Lights Icon: Standard compact florescent
Media Icon: LG 60" TV (getting the UI placed onto that stock photo was fun!)
Climate Icon: Not part of my system but a little more modern than a thermometer
Comm. Icon: Cisco 7970 (again with the UI overlayed on a stock photo)
Security Icon: LynxTouch (just ordered mine, will break my install a few times getting that going)
Phones Icon: my iPhone
**Edit, the security mode icons were changed as well, I noticed most skins use the default ones. At-home-secure = a cup of coffee, Do-Not-Disturb = a Do Not Disturb sign, Armed = a more detailed house with locks and chains. The rest of the modes I will update when I get ideas.
