O.K.  The month changed (at midnight), and it's once again time to load your beauties for all to see!

Mine is "ZubaZ ZeveN" by Master 2of3. Tim has provided us with many, many great skins... all beauties, but there's just "soemthing" which "keeps pulling me back in" and reloading it.

 

So please join me in showing all that's "special" in April with truly creative desktops which celebrate the great Stardock software we all love so much!

Thanks!  The screams are strangely comforting.  It's just the discovery that I am the butt of the cosmic joke that I find hard to take.

I figured humanity was the butt of the cosmic joke myself. After all, a bunch of oversized lizards existed on this planet longer than we probably will, lol.

I feel the same about the lights and music in my head. Who says mental illness can't be fun.

OK...the bit that was 'skun' is the plane.

"discussions" with a disgruntled member the other day saw him criticize my WC uploads [screenshots]  as something his 7 year old could do.  Yes.....pressing "PrintScreen" whether in a game [screencap] or a desktop [screenshot] is somewhat 'simple'.   The difficulty is editing multi-layer PSD files in Photoshop and PSP, per-pixel alignment of graphic sections .... ensuring transparencies and specular shine are right....hunting down just the right font/s for the text.... researching existing photos for details..... and a few days later you get DDS-DXT5 2048x2048-size detail 'skins' of John Travolta's 707 138B "Jett Clipper Ella" in the colours of the original Qantas V-Jet of the 60's..... the very model of plane I flew on in '73 on the Architecture course tour with RMIT....26 hours to London.

So there's me flying out of YMML [Melbourne Airport] in FSX.....

 

Skinning encompasses more than 'just' the Windows GUI and its associated proggies, but also Gaming Mods [as the SD Gaming fraternity will attest].

The skills are much the same.....knowing your way around some graphic tools.....having some degree of understanding about what you're doing....or trying to do.

 

BTW ...the plane/model is the Payware CaptainSim 707 [my most recent purchase].... one of the best add-ons around.  [now I need to up it to their site, I guess]...

 

PS.... just as you think it's done you remember the 'Pratt & Whitney' logos on the engines.....drat....
