Purple Night Theme
« on: January 13, 2022, 07:36:53 PM »
I'm proud to announce a new theme for Simutrans: Purple Night Theme. It's a dark theme with a modern, easy on the eyes, purple touch.

Download version 1.0 Release Candidate 3

=> https://github.com/Varkalandar/simutrans/releases/download/theme-purple_night-v10rc3/purple_night-theme-RC3.zip

Unpack the purple_night-theme-RC3.zip in simutrans/themes and restart Simutrans to refresh the themes list. On the next start you get two new theme entries "Purple Night" and "Purple Night (large size)".



Changes since RC1:

    Default window title bar color adjusted
    Default window title text color adjusted
    Player window colors had to be changed to improve status bar readability. Sadly window tittle bars and the color of the player label in the status bar are linked.
    Text color for colored buttons adjusted for better readability
    Color for text in lists and edit fields as well as highlighted text brightened a bit
    Colors for money values brightened for better readability
    Status bar colors adjusted for better contrast

Known problems:

    Icons for passengers, mail and electricity depend on the pak set and cannot be changed with a theme.

Note: The author of this theme is Hansjörg Malthaner (Hajo) and not me. I only published it in the forum by its request.

That is not right. You can also use these icons in the theme. These overwrite those contained in the pakset.

In the current pak64.german 0.123.0.0.1 there is not only the normal theme but also one for 4K screens which uses significantly larger symbols.

Thank you very much for your clarification, I'll let Hajo know.

As I posted before, I think some measures are needed to improve the appearance of dark themes.

In extended, some parameters may have already been added.

On light theme buttons for example, clicking a dark shadow gives it that click effect (like a dark highlight), but on dark themes this effect is not noticeable at all.

Is there a new parameter to change that to a light color? .
Edit.
The following is a greedy request.
(5) Can you set the color of the white frame that appears when you press the button, or make it a different style?

Thank you. I did not know that themes can override images from pak sets. I'll try this.

On light theme buttons for example, clicking a dark shadow gives it that click effect (like a dark highlight), but on dark themes this effect is not noticeable at all.

Buttons can have a normal, pressed and diabled image. I can try to give a pressed button a different look (at the moment they are just turning more dark). If that is what you mean?

Is there a new parameter to change that to a light color? .

I think the coloor of the focus frame for UI elements can be changed. I'll check this.

I am very happy to see contributions from the legendary hajo again. :D

Thank you!

Also thanks to everybody for the feedback. I'll try and see to incorporate the suggestions. This is an release candidate, so the main purpose was just this, to see if I have overlooked or misunderstood somet settings.
