Sharp WIP7 by Seahorsepip Sharp WIP7 by Seahorsepip
Another screenshot, this time it's about icons again, I changed the folder icons to fit the theme a bit more. And modified the desktop icon to make it fit windows more (windows has a taskbar instead of command bar on top).

If you look closely you'll also notice a new bg, it's called "day" and the previous darker blue wallpaper will be called "night" The wallpapers will be released together after I'm done with the preview image for them ;)

Full credits to DanRabbit for the elementary icons.

I'm having trouble locating the up arrow which displays at the left side of the breadcrumb bar... anyone know where this little devil might be hiding?  Thanks for any help you may offer.            i632.photobucket.com/albums/uu…

It's very hard to theme it, you can just get rid of it by using old new explorer or explorer toolbar customizer for win 8.

Hey Seahorsepip are you still working on this awesome concept?
I'm checking every once in a while to see if you have any updates...   I'm really looking forward to this visual style!
Do you have anything we could at least test out?

Cheers!

How about a dark version like Sharp WIP3, but full gray folders/nav icons and left side is also dark gray?

will be configurable on release, if you want it grey you enter grey if you want it #ff0000 then you can also do that.

Top left corner looks sharp. The other 3 edges aren't. :l
Reply
:iconseahorsepip:
Seahorsepip Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
It's looks like that because of the wallpaper, all edges have a 3px border radius and the source images are rendered from svg files so everything that you see is just because of the combination between the wallpaper background and the window color.

Might be just me, but the top left corner looks sharp compared to the rounded corner on the top right.

It just looks like that because the background(blue on blue instead of white on blue). The top border image was made in inkscape so it should be flawless.

A tiny question, does it need Aeroglass installed to have transparent-gradient in the titlebar?
Reply
:iconseahorsepip:
Seahorsepip Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
Yes but you can also use winaeroglass but then there won't be blur on that gradient.
Reply
:iconlink6155:
link6155 Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
winaeroglass works fine for the most part, but it's much more intensive on lower end pc because it forces Windows to refresh constantly.

I think i'ts really amazing what you have done here! Not many themes out there that really tweaks the look this much, and this beautiful! So looking forward for it to be ready for release! Maby you should have a "Pre-release BETA Version" for fans to try it out early? ;)

Amazing, Seahosepip! Can't wait for you to release this theme!
Without wanting to be too picky...   could you, please, also consider doing a squarish version of this theme, like the Office 2013 looks?

:iconseahorsepip:
Seahorsepip Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
Indeed I'll do that and also a non transparent square version that can be recolored ;)

Hey I've fallen in love with these themes, just a few question you've probably answered a fair few times.

1. Is this on Windows 8/8.1 only or coming to Windows 7 too?
2. Approximate release date unless already out?
Reply
:iconseahorsepip:
Seahorsepip Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
1. I'll make it for windows 8.1 only, a friend of mine will port it to 7
2. nope, work in progress don't know when it's done.

Wow, this looks super nice.

My only concern with themes that deviate greatly from the original design is that they kind of mess up with some programs.

But awesome design none the less!!

This is looking more and more polished each time I look! Exciting stuff!

One thing I'm concerned about is the command bar missing. Is it possible to have it visible along the bottom of the window much like it was in Wave in Windows 7?
I know a modification of a modification to Win8.1 is going to be difficult at best to fit!

Nope too much work and editing the shell32.dll can give so many problems in windows 8 that's a bad idea to customize it.
Where do you need it for by the way? the menubar has everything (press alt)

Thought it would be a bit complex! I suppose I'm just used to having the basic tools there, a quick way to do a few things (icon type, New Folder, Folder Options mainly). Guess I can learn to live without it, it does look very clean!
