Are you two serious?? Changing themes on Mac has been available awhile..............................where are you living anyway?? The Moon?! 

And no,I am not giving any link,find it by yourself.

So you got out the wrong side of the bed this morning, Gaspershooters, but that's no excuse to be 'ornery and cantakerous.

And if you had read it right, I said that OS-X is more hard coded than Windows these days, meaning that the ability to customise has been limited since you last looked.

El Capitan is the end of skinning on OSX I am afraid. If you have Yosemite you are lucky. Well, haven't tried it myself because I never paid the Apple tax.

Precisely!  Apple clamped down on theming a couple of editions ago.  According to the article I read, Tim Cook frowns on the "bastardisation" of OS-X GUIs and called for more of the OS to be hard coded after Yosemite, which is the version I have and will keep.  It seems that the more Apple updates and tinkers with OS-X the more users lose, by way of programs and functionality.  Still, Microsoft is no better!  Windows 10 is goddam awful.... on too many levels.

Iconpackager really needs to happen for Windows 10. I've said it before...Windowblinds, Iconpackager, and CursorFX are the first three I look to to customize my desktop completely....all the rest is gravy.

Personally, I never understood the fascination with 'Tiles'. It's such a real estate hog and the taskbar or Objectdock work just fine for all that Tile offers or does. That's just my opinion. I think Rainlendar serves a better purpose, is more functional, and just makes sense (but that's not Stardock's, I know). Tiles seems like 'What else can we make that can be skinned to go with the already existing Windowblinds?" I tried it, along with Objectbar and everything Stardock had/has to offer. The bottom line, IMO, is that Windowblinds, Iconpackager, and CursorFX is (and don't laugh) are the Moe, Larry, and Curly of desktop customization. They work great together, they belong together, and if you take away anyone of them they will be sorely missed. (And I think that is what is being said here, to begin with)

Hell, the fact that Objectdock looks so nice and can be skinned to match blinds and you can use iconpackager with it is the only reason I keep it even though Fences is more effecient. I feel ridiculous running both, but I like both so much I can't pick one over the other.

Finally, since I'm on a roll/rant...I'm miffed that you all canceled the monthly subscription for ODN. It worked for me. I was even willing to overlook the fact that Iconpackager wasn't updated. But since you've put your foot down and squashed the monthly sub, so to speak, I'n putting my foot down and will hold off on subscribing until IP is updated and available as it has been and really should be along with Windowblinds (IMHO).

Finally (for real) I said it in a previous thread...if Iconpackager DOES end up going the way of DesktopX, IconX, or any other customization app you favored or loved, we / you have only ourselves to blame for not really speaking up LOUDLY and enough..whether in threads, emails, pm's, or with your wallet.

Not trying to be a dick but I do hope I am starting something, in a civil way, no sarcasm intended.

No, you're not a dick Po, just saying it as it is. Put Stardock on the spot, IS THERE A FUTURE FOR ICONPACKAGER. Yes or No.

You don't have to try, Po, you are most proficient and can serve it up to the deserving with consumate ease.  I recall when you used to serve it up to skinhit with 'shops' and an acid wit.  Ah, those were the days, when there was still fun to be had in the forums... when men were men and the women were glad of it.

Anyhow, it's great to see you back in the forums and speaking up on important issues.  I whole heartedly agree with you on IconPackager.  It is an intregal and vital part od customising the desktop.  Without IP, it's like strawberries without the cream; roast beef without the gravy; pavlova without the eggs... going on a date up lovers lane and leaving the condoms at home.

Put it this way, being I got forced to run Win 10, if IconPackager ain't updated for it, I'm gonna throw one terrible tantrum; beat up a banker; piss on a politician; go to a library so people can go "SSSSHHHH" when I scream 'FUUUUUCCKKKK!!!!' at the top of my lungs.

My defense?  Stardock induced insanity... separation anxiety and IP withdrawal symptoms..

There was a time when I would have said 'The least you could do is throw CursorFX into ODN to make up for not having Iconpackager" or something like that. To be clear, I am NOT saying that now.

I want Iconpackager. There is no replacement or alternative.  And I don't think anyone else wants to be smoothed over or pacified with something else. We just want what has always been a fantastic app that STILL IS" an integral and vital part of customising the desktop" for anyone who is into it.

I don't think there is a single desktop customization app around that does not incorporate or have had incorporated into it the ability to customize some if not all the icons. I would even point out WInstep, with it's own custom icons and Rainmeter which allows the use of custom icons..because when someone is customizing their desktop they don't tend to stop at the icons.

I'd go further by saying that you brought this on yourselves with software like Fences and Objectdock that bring the icons front and center to the desktop and lets be honest...Microsoft has come a long way in improving the over all appearance of Windows and the icons that come with it, but there are some pretty spectacular Windowblinds and Docks that will never be able to enhance them or 'go' with them and as nice as they may be now (Windows icons) they are not doing justice to any of the work done by the skinners and are almost better left off the desktop when all is said and done.

That's my 'Po, over the top, going to the extreme, exaggerating the issue' rant for the day.

I just want Iconpackager to complete my customization. When it's updated, then,  I'll fight with the wife for the annual subscription fee (I'm still miffed you stopped the monthly subs).

As has been mentioned before the future of IP is under discussion.  I cannot promise specifics but I am hopeful there will be a version for Windows 10 at some point.

 

That's about as definitive as anyone can be.

When I visited SD last September [and finally met up with both Angie and Neil in particular] I do recall 'Iconpackager' being mentioned.

 

[and it wasn't "Iconpackager....what's that?"] ...

 

I personally haven't used it in yonks but it's a GUI mod that can be appreciated...

lurking for months to finally hear something about IP 
Got mail reneweal was more expansive than buying a completely new OD package
Good thing that i wasn´t to tempted to click purchase after reading about all of the issues in topics
SO my question is what about IP? Do i have to wait another 6 months for more info or can you guys leak some?

Personally I uninstalled ICONPACKAGER and I turn to CUSTOMIZER GOD - that let me modify the Windows 10 ugly icons. I recommend it meanwhile we wait for a possible new IP version for Windows 10.

Has anything changed with the process of creating an icon package? Just curious as there hasn't been a new icon package for almost a year.

Are there any tutorials for creating a full, complete Win10 Icon set?

 

Thanks,
