    Starfinder Simple Theme

    This is the thread for Steve's Simplified Starfinder Themes.

    While I do like the Paizo goblin themes for Pathfinder, it didn't quite set the right mood for me for Starfinder. Plus I wanted to simplify the interface a bit. Basically, this moves the sidebar into the chat window in an attempt to save desktop space. Thanks to Trenloe, Damned, and Samarex for hints.

    There are currently two versions of the Simplified Theme: Bars and Icons. Bars are horizontal bars with words on them. Icons are just icons. The Icons version saves nearly 100 pixels of horizontal screen space compared to the bars version. The trade-off is that there is a bit more of a learning curve as you learn icons based on the tooltips.

    Revisions
    ----------------------------------
    v 1.6 Release of Bars and Icons as separate extensions.

    v1.5 Minor Tweaks

    v1.4 Image Handling Improvements

    v1.3 Fixed Moving Image Window to Background

    v1.2 Fixed the Dice Tower

    v1.1 Fixed background image tiling problem

    v1.0 Initial release.

    While I like the Gobbo theme, I really am liking what you are putting together.

    Impressive...most impressive!

    Cross-examining Lawyer: Let us restrict it to killed so we may have a manageable figure!

    Looks very interesting.
    Have you anchored the sidebar buttons into the chatwindow?
    Have you tested on a smaller FG window size?

    Updated. Playing around with opacity/transparency. I was kind of thinking I liked the idea of a starship HUD look. Also, made some new utility buttons to match the theme.

    Yes, I have anchored the sidebar buttons into the chatwindow, but I'm not 100% sure I did it right, as I lack understanding of classes, panels, and anchors One thing I haven't figured out is how to make additional columns in the shortcutsanchor grow right instead of left, which is a problem if there are too many buttons. Plus, I'm not even sure that I've got control over shortcutsanchor to begin with.

    You can also limit the number of columns that the menu will display.
    Trenloe posted an example of this somewhere a few weeks ago.

    Yep, I found this myself as well.

    function onInit()

    DesktopManager.showDockTitleText(false);
    DesktopManager.setStackIconSizeAndSpacing(49, 39, 1, 0);
    DesktopManager.setDockIconSizeAndSpacing(100, 31, 0, -2);
    DesktopManager.setLowerDockOffset(3, 0, 0, 0);
    DesktopManager.setMaxDockColumns(1);

    end
