Gaol.VS.UpDate by somnign Gaol.VS.UpDate by somnign
i'm really pleased with all the love this style has received =)
makes me feel all happy :w00t: thank you all!

see Gaol in action [link]

::UPDATE::
i added a compact version. tested myself with all possible
icon configs and it works fine.
you may notice the file size has doubled. i just added a
new msstyle file "GaolCmpct" with the six compact styles.
i know its a heavy style but in the future i'll split em up
=) enjoy

Loving this, I can't decide which color I like the best!

Can you give me an idea on how to use the Shutoff skin?

I really like the look of this, but I won't be able to use it as I can't have large icons system wide. I need to have 'details' in explorer. Other issue is fonts, I like the choice but would prefer the possibility of using a font that has small caps (I know I can change those myself, which I usually do with any vs). It's definitely the issue of icon size that is stopping me using what looks to be perhaps my favourite vs.

i will have an update available soon that has a compact version
eliminating the necessity of large icons. =)

with the compact version you can use any size icons you wish...
so incase you wouldn't normally want large icons now it isn't
a problem =)
have a look!

Really nice VS :) Great unusula choice of colours
I have a remark though :
- the radio buttons are not distinct enough. It is hard to see which one is checked.

Oh I have remarks regarding the TB too:
- the back arrows are too small and invisible when you don't mouse over them. This is kinda hard to use.
- The display type icons are in English so it's not cool for non english people ;) I suggest that you replace them with suggestive icons and add a a Folder Options too to be complete.
cheers

never even considered alt languages. but i guess having icons would take care of that. the little navigation buttons were intentionally hidden and small to keep things minimalistic =D
but thanks, i'll keep your comments in mind

The colors are gorgeous, so is the layout, my only two/three issues:
1. The font looks alright in some places, but not all of them. For example, it changes the text in things like instant messages as well, and that makes it a bit too much of a good thing. Multiple font options?
2. The spacing between items in the task bar looks a bit strange. I personally think it'd look better with just a 1 pixel line separation instead of the chunky gap between and the think black lines.
3. the taskbar items seem to be offset a bit. They look raised above the rest/background of the taskbar.. it looks kind of weird.

The design and colors are incredible, i love it, but those three things keep me from using it. I'd mod it, but i only seem to destroy VS's when i try to edit them.

hey, thanks for the critique..
the taskbar buttons were actually designed to have the hard black gradient at the edges. and the way the they appear above the taskbar is an illusion i stumbled upon by accident. i thought some people might like to see it, and if you don't like it you can unlock the taskbar bar for another look i stumbled upon. the spacing is a personal preference ;)
i'm not very picky about fonts, but i will try to be more experimental with them =)
again thanks for the comment

p.s. here's a screen in case it's just me/my setup that is making it look like this or in case my explanation doesn't make sense. [link]

p.p.s. the items in the taskbar don't overlap with a full screen window open.
