    Nissan CARWINGS skin : In Developement

    Currently working on a more OEM styled interface for the Nissan/Infiniti owners out there as well as anyone else who likes it enough to use in their cars. At the end of development I'll include a separate dev-kit with the original PSD's for those who wish to expand upon this skin. I'm building it for some basic functionality now but intentionally left lots of room for expansion as there are a lot of people more capable than I out there, especially considering this is my first skin.

    Menu structure: (As of now, possible changes as development progresses)
    AUDIO (WinAMP?)
    -CD
    -MP3
    -EQUALIZER (Full EQ)
    VIDEO (WindowsMediaPlayerClassic?)
    NAVIGATION
    -GPS (iGuidance)
    -FUEL (Plugin?)
    -TRAFFIC (Plugin?)
    -WEATHER (Plugin?)
    TELEPHONE (FreeFone)
    TUNING (CONSULT)
    SETTINGS
    -POWER (Reset)
    -BLUETOOTH
    --New Device
    --Enable/Disable
    -DISPLAY
    --Brightness
    --Contrast
    --Day/Night (Manual)
    --GPS (settings/satellites)

    Current iteration examples:




    Examples that skin is inspired by:

    Looks like a theme that has potential.

    Good luck with it




    Actually looks like it has quite a few bits in common with the BMW iDrive that is in the 6 series

    Mmmmm... I say it looks more like FU. But I like that 3-D GPS view with the trees and the buildings.

    Looks like a terriffic looking layout and yes it is familiar with FU and my skin as well. That shouldnt discourage you at all on completing your work. Just remember some of rr's limitatins will prohibit your skin from mimicing the nissan skin... particularly the fact that RR does not allow custom application (A) shapes and doesnt allow any part of the skin to hang over a portion of the (A) window.

    That makes me sad. I'll have to get creative on that one then.

    EDIT: I may have a way to still make that somewhat work in appearance using the day/night skin features and just working the background with whatever application I'm embedding within the square 'application area'.

    Quick question -- what would be the best way to integrate Tissy's logo/clock/speedo function into a skin? I've never intermingled flash objects or anything like that before so it's new ground for me.

    Thanks,

    This looks good. Can't wait to see it finished. The fact that I have a Nissan helps
    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story

    Looks like I'll be taking a step back in order to take two steps forward. I'm going to take what I've done so far and start working it into flash as I realized today a lot of my goals will only be realized if I do so.

    I also need to read more into interfacing flash with RR as well as embedding iGuidance and some of the other tools out there like VLC or WMPC to make sure they work smoothly. It'll take more processing power but I think overall it will be worth it.
