This week, I concentrated on simplicity and decided not to have too many things on my desktop. I found this is a good thing, as I have to look up each of the icons I chose for Object Dock+.
I used the WindowBlind October by NighTrain. I thought it was fitting. This blind is a warm pumpkin color with stylish window frames. It really does say October!
I decided to use Element by skinhit for my IconPackage. There are quite a few orange hued icon sets, but the backlighting of this set really looks sharp against the startmenu.
The wall is Orange Blossom by AzDude I edited it in my PaintShopPro 7 program to reverse the pattern and flip it. I didn't like the way the graphic was hidden by the start menu and placing it to the upper right made all the difference.
CursorFX theme is Silex by the AVMaN. I have used this theme in the past , in my reviews,but I felt it was the right cursor for this grouping.
Now, for the docks.
I recently had to redownload all of my docks and icons, and I made the tragic mistake of not saving each link I downloaded from for the reviews. Now I am paying for that , and am having to hunt down each icon all over again to capture the link. It's unfortunate that the icons don't all have titles which would make it easy for me to find them. But I will do my best to list all of them today. If I missed someone's icon, please post the link in comments for those who might like to download it.
The first dock ,is TransBrass by Cavan1 I used the tray file from this dock and because it's a side dock it changed the whole look of the dock. If you prefer you can alter the look to show properly within properties by clicking "stretch background proportionally. I like the way it resembles a display you might see in a store so I left it as is.
I really don't care for the Wincustomize icon that is standard with the program, so I changed it to WinCustomize Chameleon by Bandit4edu.
I hope someone soon makes a calendar docklet to replace the current one. It's boring and the blue color isn't all that flattering for most groupings.
The Power docklet is 2d battery meter docklet 2006 by Havell. You would think something this clean and pretty would be standard on the objectdock package but the one that comes with it is rather plain and the colors are harsh. I really like the three dimensional look of this one.
I used the pccube icon from the WhiteFire2 Dock Icons by basj to make a flyout menu for my computer items. I didnt' show it because I have two flyouts this week and the Stardock flyout is really prettier.
Speaking of the Stardock flyout menu,.. This dock I chose to be a single dock. I wanted my Stardock programs available at a single click , on the desktop. A flyout menu was the best way to obtain that goal. I chose a dock from my menu called sglass tile. I can't find the link to this one, so if anyone knows , please tell me so I can post it.
The icons are Cosmos by PixelPirate (thanks so much to Winstar4 for helping find these!!!) These icons are bright, clean and professional and I am really enjoying using them.
The Stardock Logo icon is part of a Liquidox set, Which is a premium suite and can be found here Liquidox Theme
The tabbed dock at the top , is alegnA by Messiah1 I had set it to accept color in configuration , and that brought the hues closer to the orange I've used here.
