Milksama and I are putting in some efforts right now to do a high end, animated, Media Player skin. One that would work in either OS. However we were looking at is what theme should we start with? We boiled it down to three. We would really like anyone to toss in a vote or ideas for the player.
Idea 1: High end technology.
Think common type skin. Lots of shine, glass, holograms, and glowy bits. Animations are quick and crazy with lots of flash to it.
Idea 2: Low post-apocalyptic war tech.
If you are a Fallout fan you can remember the pip boy menus. Well we won't be doing it quite like that but it gives you an idea. Knobs that click in place, buttons you actually punch in, displays that are analog or the green on black text, and even reel to reel magnetic tape.
Idea 3: Steampunk
Gears, steam ports, odd wires going this way and that, with measure of very odd might-be-high-technology-jury-rigged-into-place-with-duct tape look. Like anime and tank girl had some strange child here to amuse you.
The reason we ask is because due to the quality we are shooting for (hence the workload) we really want something that people are going to want to see and try out. Popular vote will dictate this one. If you have ideas please post away or PM me with them. Image links for reference are fun too. Plus if you just have questions let us know.
Thanks for your time and input in this project!
