LCARS

I'm nerding out I think

Friday, January 15, 2010 by messiah1 | Discussion: Sneak Previews

Working on this in the bits of free time I have.  Thank goodness for laptops!  The sidebar is functional, although not completed yet.  The bottom half has a transparent dock over it so it looks like it's holding the icons.  I like the way it turned out.  The gadget is an LCARS gadget I found online, although I've heavily modified it.  The original just didn't do it for me.  So far, there's the sidebar, gadget, icons, docks, rightclick and the taskbar of a win7 wb, all WIPs.  Skinning is fun. 

I know someone else is working on some LCARS stuff, feel free to post any of your LCARS related projects on this thread as I'd like to see them.  I'll post more here as time progresses.

I remenber the LCARS WB I started back in 07

Never finished it.........Man it's hard to make windows in true LCARS style. So many things just don't work!

That's the reason I changed the design to PADD

By the way, you should be carefull about mixing styles like you have there. Those icons on the bottom right are Star Trek Enterprise style and not TNG LCARS like the rest.

I personally don't mind at all (they look good ), but the die hard trekkies may have an issue with it

 

 

Great start, Monkey boy!

Yeah, I know.  But I had them already made and needed some icons for my dock.  You have to watch those trekkies, they go for blood if you screw something up.

Just came across this and wanted to check in to see how this is coming along.  I've been searching all over the web for a good Win7 LCARS theme/transformation and no one seems to have one. Yours looks very good though! I assume this is for WindowsBlinds, correct?  I'd be interested in registering for this if it's complete.  Thanks for your time...

It won't be coming along at all, I'm afraid. messiah1 is currently a Marine on active duty and no longer skinning.

Please join me in wishing him well.
