Tom: Didn't intend that mention as showstopper at any means. Sooner or later the pipe idea will pop up every few years. Sountox itself was heavily inspired by "Thredz" for example. + Your graphic skills and possibilities are much better than ours in 2001 (Actually the only thing I am still proud of is the animated iris, that noone did at any time). I will follow this skin closely and enjoy the outcome.
My friend, I do not feel any offense on your shout. No worries there. I guess you are so nice to be a showstopper. When starting up with Consturct, in fact I am still at the beginning with it, I felt like the pipe look might be fine and new. Hardly to believe I am not the first one but when bearing in mind the length of skinning, a bunch of years, then it is innevitable that some designs might pop up from time to time.
I will try my best.
