Same here, this looks way better than the default GUI!

Going to look at this tomorrow, and get a 3.2 and 3.4 one out, then that will be good for the next 6 months.

once i get my head in to it, it should be quick-ish

I always re-do the xml's so not to miss new menu bits in (dialogs)

The anthrax.xml seems to not update much or at all.

Updated GUI's for FG 2017+

Richard has been awesome and simplified the gui code B)
Now there is only the one xml to create new themes.

Having a play with a new FGUK theme, I think it needs tweaking a bit still.

Feedback wellcome :)


There in the cloud for a link please :)

I really like the colours, it looks good.

Is there any way to change the font size/style? In a few places, even on my huge screen, it can get a bit hard to read against the blue.

Yes thw font and size are at the top of the gui anthrax xml.

The blue one is helvetica-12 or 14,
Changing the numbers to 18 should do it.

I will do some tests at difereant srceen res
I did wonder if it was a bit small.

Did a test with diferant screen resalutions, the text is the same size in all.

I am going to add Small, Med and Large options to the pack.


I think with the white writing on dark blue is hard to read for me.
Testing text colours for me is tricky due to my dyslexia, I am never sure weather its me or all that find it hard to read :side:
This Eve wiki i use is almost imposable for me to read, to much contrast between the text and background. wiki.eveuniversity.org/Main_Page


I might dim the bright white text to see if that helps too.

Dev cloud updated with the size tests, and dimmed the writing on the FGUK theme.

The standard text size for the FG Gui is helvetica-12,

Small Text - helvetica-12
Med Text - helvetica-14
Large Text - helvetica-18
