  • MediaCar destinator skin???

    I am want to try resurrecting an old MediaCar skin called Destinator.... it is bright and colorful and easier to read in daylight. I just have to get my photoshop skills working better. I just wish I could find the original PSDs for it. Anyone know where I might find them? Attached is a copy of the main menu skin

    I think Coyote made this skin himself for MC.. so he'd be the one that has the PSDs... needless to say the authoring rights are his and that's why I didn't want to use it in first place. From the looks of the new mediacar skin (ICE-Pack), seems like he simply modified it a little bit.. it should be fairly simple to re-make/improve the PSDs, the icons you can get from the JPGs..

      I started thinking about it yesterday... It's probably better to start right from scratch. I want the skin to be able to access all functions you have provided, so by the time I'm done, this will be completely different anyway.... I just liked the contrast in bright daylight.

      Thanks Guino!

        I like the style... the blue is kinda toy-ish, but I can see this developing into something cool

        Any ideas for putting a PC in this? :)

          Ya.... I grabbed it from the MediaCar forum a couple of months ago.. I noticed that stuff has left the forum now, so I'm glad I did.

          I feel the same way you do about the skin, but it looks better in the car and I really like the contrast on the screen in daylight. I like how complete Garo's spaced out skin is, but it's still a bit dark for me and the clock font is a bit small. I love how consistent he has made it however, and there is the quick shutdown button I really like. He has done a fantastic job on the skin! I just wish I had the photoshop skills to do something like that. It's boating season here now, so my self teach days are behind me until October at best. I do plan to fart around though. I am definately going to start from scratch on the skin. I want to make a double of the I-Drive display (since I own a 3er), but I plan to make both day and night.

          I really wish that we could see the final of Digital Graphite. That is a beautiful skin, just not finished. We all have commitments I guess... Except Guino that is who is just a programming machine. I can't believe the pace at which he codes, then manages a career and a home life at the same time. Pretty Impressive.
