Ok since i got the pics out already i wanted to post a thread just for this im going ahead with the build of it 2mar but i figured i would post the concept pics again for people who havent seen it yet. Also i want to address that wut u see here is pre build so it all might stay might not we will have to wait. Im looking for some gfx artists not to many to help (as i can do gfx myself just need some extra input) and a small coder as this skin is not that complicated at all the idea of it is simplicity and the whole reason i named it placid is because it means calm and peaceful easy. I want this to be a fun exprience for all who help thanx and heres the screens.

Jun 11 2007, 08:43 PM
well i dont wanna leave u guys with nothing so heres a little piece of the new skin its more or less a promotional poster kinda
but im reinventing the whole project some things like i said might fit might not im going to show a better concept i have in the works but here it is ill release the alpha build along with the website to downlaod it off of and hopefully it will be on the xbmc skinning svn but here it is placid (working title) promotional pic
dont worry theres more to come thats just what will happen when the skin loads up like i said its a new concept of the skin to make it look more sleek and sexy
Jun 11 2007, 08:53 PM
looks good except for the font
Jun 11 2007, 08:55 PM
its just a p lol supposed to be simple and the idea is simplicity (witch is a potential name for this skin)
Jun 11 2007, 09:03 PM
i mean the words below the p
Jun 11 2007, 09:08 PM
oh lol well not everything will stay the same

Jun 12 2007, 02:42 PM
not bad. i like it. didn't know you could have an analog clock though. but then again i've been out of it forever.
Jun 12 2007, 03:09 PM
Bookmarked. This skin looks sweet!
Jun 12 2007, 03:36 PM
The clock and background look a little like the EX - blackbolt skin
Jun 12 2007, 03:43 PM
oh god, not more eX comparisons!
Jun 12 2007, 11:25 PM
argh *tries to wait patiently* hurry! this looks.... AWESOME
Jun 13 2007, 01:21 AM

Jun 13 2007, 04:24 AM
heres the concept of the video section some things may change more important updates to come!
Also if you havent heard me and SC10-E will be picking up were nubbs left off on nexus and hopefully finish only after we complete placid
Jun 13 2007, 03:23 PM

also i know i forgot to put the reflection on the games slide btu u get the point
Jun 13 2007, 10:04 PM

Jun 13 2007, 10:25 PM
Dude I don't think you should have a button for downloading an episode of a Tv show, When you don't own the right for it
Jun 13 2007, 11:00 PM
no never thats just a concept idea for a featured download i didnt know what to put so i put that i know its illegal im not gonna do it anyway just a concept dont worry lol
Jun 14 2007, 03:38 AM
lololol. you need to hurry up with this....
Jun 14 2007, 11:08 PM
yeah were gonna start to work hard on it 2mar so look for updates
Jun 14 2007, 11:31 PM
Nice work D3vi@nt and SC10-E, looking forward to the release
Jun 15 2007, 12:35 AM
actually I haven't done anything yet but make the skin.xml and code all of the font.xml's and I will be in florida on vacation starting tomorrow thru sunday so hopefully D3vi@nt has some other coders to work with while I'm gone
Jun 15 2007, 01:34 AM
yeah well shit happens the real life gets in the way alot but w/e its more important than a skin lol we will work on it next week then sorry folks
Jun 15 2007, 01:38 AM
Here's a suggestion - make your mock-ups in the actual resolution that XBMC displays. You'll save yourself a lot of time when you actually start making the skin!
Jun 15 2007, 02:26 AM
sounds like a good idea 2 me.
i want to be a mimesis tester, theres always great stuff on there
Jun 15 2007, 03:21 AM
no those images are made to be small so they dont stretch the forums and mess with the boards
Jun 15 2007, 03:39 AM
oh, all righty then. lemme know if you need a tester when you get this skin out
Jun 15 2007, 04:21 AM
well dont we all need testers
Jun 15 2007, 08:14 PM
just a small update no majer work will begin on the sin till SC10-E gets back but im makin minor adjustments to some critical parts of this skin thats getting even me excited for it
Jun 16 2007, 03:34 AM
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i havent looked forward to anything this much since vision....
Jun 16 2007, 03:50 AM
hmm really thats interesting thanks for the positive replys people
we will select testers when we get a working proper build we will see who gets it first
Jun 17 2007, 05:05 PM
heres what happens when you click the thumbstick it brings up this menu
i only added the power button so u get the idea of it
Jun 19 2007, 04:59 PM
im gonna be taking some time off from the skin its self and actually learn how to code the entire thing so i can get good knowledge and there for make a better and reliable skin. im not gonna stop the project i just need some time to learn how to edit the proper things to make the skin work the way i want thats all for now and peace
Jun 29 2007, 01:31 AM
the site that placid will be released on is here www.mediaarena.co.nr its still being built so the design isnt final also it will be released on the forum but only a little after the main site there has to be a section for placid added still but it will be added check it out now! I also plan on adding in xtv and a few other skins on there
Jun 29 2007, 01:53 AM
I got a question about your signature Image
it says "Themes & Updates Daily
" I'm curious what you will be putting out every day XBMC development dosn't go that fast that you would need to update it every day so are we getting a new theme everyday ? or is it a slight exaggeration. because if we get a new theme every day I'd rather go for quality over quantity any time
