Those who have Firefox and Adblock enabled are not able to download the skin form MediaFire. So disable for the time being before download.

Thanks for sharing  :)

Is this an expansion of the blue used in 'Blackout'?

Even if not, it looks very nice!
The subtle toning around the toolbar buttons is a great touch.
And the spectrum certainly reminds me of white caps on the ocean

yeah, pretty much. i wanted to make the deep blue the dominant colour. i had originally planned on making it a bitmap but i might keep that for the next one.

Thank you very much for the update  :) The skin looks really great.

I like in particular:
1) an original splash screen and Artwork (!!!);
2) mix of colours;
3) scrollbars look (!);

However, I can't get used to green buttons, progress bars etc.
How about changing green to blueish or violet (or maybe similar effect as for the scrollbars would be possible)  ???
It would reduce amount of colours used and would be consistent with the rest of the skin.

IMHO the changes are good step forward. I like all that I've noticed.

I'd consider changing green to violet though. Plus, consider unifying colour for Rating Stars in Main Panel view: gold in the Control Panel and blue/violet in Main Panel (too dark in this case, IMHO they should have more contrast with the background).

preferred the green in the visualiser before, definitely more ocean-like.
maybe have a look at some ocean pics for a lighter, blue-er green?

That could be a good direction.

I preferred the lighter colour for highlighting elements (violet in older version). I think the dark blue currently used is too dark for the background and can be hardly visible with some monitor settings.
