Lcars DX 5.6 1280X800 WIP

I blame Tim!!! :p

Monday, March 9, 2009 by HG_Eliminator | Discussion: Sneak Previews

After 3 mos of working on just 2 pages of the 9 necessary to finish the build for 1280x800 resolution, and worked with about 50 of the 300+ objects left to tweak. Ive decide to offer a peek at what its looking like so far.

 

HG_Eliminator shakes his fist at Tim, dern borg always wanting peoples technological distinctivnes

Tho at this rate it might be ready by his next birthday.

 

Yes I know the task bar and sys tray arent active yet. * I have new Ideas for them, yet to be implemented*

Heres the main interface:

 

 

Any feed back is cool..

Talk about fantastic work! HG tremendous skill and patience are needed for this! I am so impressed...Being an old Trekkie, I can't help but love this WIP....I'd love a peek at Starfleet Medical!

I was asked an excellent Question and thought I would add the reply here too for others who may be curious..

Why not res independant?

This was built off of my Old DX Lcars theme which was built 1280x1024 res dependant, this was before the advent of Resindependant themes. https://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=3806&libid=31

Unlike my average DX theme which incorporates one desktop, LCARS incorporates 9 interfaces in total, which are full page Gui's over laid like Virtual desktops, each hidden behind the others wallpaper until toggled in to view by the perspective Buttons, as well as the hidden logon and log off screens only seen during boot and shut down sequences.. Just bringing it down to 1280x800 I will have to do some massive editing to the theme, It will never fit smaller resolutions then 1280x800 as the images are just to big and to many of them to mash in to a smaller res. .

I'm building this Mod Per a request by Tim. Hes only been asking for a couple years now.    Last time I tried I lost 6 mo's worth of work when my mainboard took out my HDD. So I had given up on it for a while. I may eventually make a res dependant build for 1280x1024 and up, but this would necessitate larger wallpapers and precut backgrounds for each object which last count was over 300.

It designer and innovative. But it looks too simple for a theme having more than 300 objects. I would like to see it more styliish including glassy buttons and glossy backgrounds. Good luck and best wishes.

Super you are only seeing one of the 9 interfaces in the screen shots If you look here you will see there are 9 interfaces to the theme, each a full screen size page of buttons and animations,sounds,mouseovers etc. * they have been shrunk down to fit within this Image..***

LCARS on the Series and movies was only glossy due to the screens it showed on, the graphics were simple images.

 

Thanks for the compliments tho.

Oh so sorry for the misssssss. I had not seen #6. I regret I got lazy.

But I could only see one interface and I had to give all my feedback seeing this.

Hope it would be a great dxtheme and wish to see it soon.

Now I can see all those interfaces and thanks for uploading them. I am sure it would be awesome.

Still I wish it had some metallic touch. I am most impressed by the nine interfaces. Great work HG!

Your three months devotion shows up with it.
