Transport Tycoon theme installed

Post by orudge »

I have installed the Transport Tycoon theme by dominionspy. It seems to work well enough (except the colour of certain links - eg, links to "TTDPatch Moderators", or the author/last post links in the forum listing - clash with the grey background. dominionspy: do you think you could alter this?

Owen, where it says 'administrator' or 'moderator' below certain people's 'post bars' is just about unreadable when using the new theme.
(but I don't like them anyway...)

Yes those texts under the post bars are unreadable.


But then again, I never liked those bars.

Yes, that is something I'd noticed. I'll get it sorted later probably. I'll also see about getting those links sorted: it seems to be links that you've visited that are in blue, I think.

Thanks everyone for the feedback - there should be an update to fix all the minor problems by tomorrow - so if people could just hang on for the 'perfect' :D theme a little longer, thanks.

Well, I for one don't like the theme. It's far too dark for my taste and IMO makes the test harder to read/focus on. I'll be sticking with the silver theme!

Yes, the post background is a bit too dark for me too, makes it hard to read. I understand that it's the TTD gray of dialogs, but a lighter dark would be better there.

I would like to congratulate dominionspy on his energy and resoucefulness in putting this all together. Well done, he has shown us just how much scope we have in changing our Forums reading and writing areas. 8)

However i think the TT game play theme does not lend itself to Forum pages.
The game is a visual panorama with decision making and much mouse clicking.
Visiting the Forum is like opening the mail and reading letters with much expectation in the lounge room.

My suggestion for a theme is the President of the railroad company's desktop. There would be his or hers writing paper with letterhead, and of couse the big expensive padded swivel chair.
For me i am staying with old faithful subSilver for now. :)

HF making it :roll:

No seriously though I do like the idea but the TT theme is a bit more TT-ish...

Well personally the only thing I don't like is the admins and mods links. Or I think visited links. They go blue and are unreadable. Apart from that I love this theme :D

I think you'll find that it's already fixed.

And about the admin/mod links - I also think that they don't look good, but I don't think Owen does.
I would take a lot of file searching to change the colours since they're not stored in the style sheet, but hard-coded into the template files. :(

I'm glad you like it. If your links are still blue - try refreshing the page.
