Informer Shadow by OtisBee Informer Shadow by OtisBee

this is the ObjectDock background as it can be seen in my reminiscent desktop screenshot.
nothing special actually, but i was in need for a matching dock appearance to the Informer Widget i had in use at the top of my screen.

if it wasn't ~jazzava who talked me into releasing this i would probably never have done it.

if you want this background to look like in the preview image above then make the following adjustments in the dock config window:
- iconsize = 42px
- transparency = approx. 50%
- colorize (RGB) = 0 / 30 / 40


...put the "Informer Shadow" folder in
then rightclick your dock and navigate to
Properties >> Appearance >> Background >> Informer Shadow.
apply your changes with "ok" and you're done. ;)

the icons seen in the preview image were inspired by Roberto Urso's The Kobhens icons.
in lack of the according font i created my own set of icons while using the font BASIC5.
you can download a huge pack of more than 200 BASIC5 TEXTUAL png icons from here.

the clock icon in the middle of the dock was created by dobber_72 and can be downloaded here.

the drive icon on the far right is part of the 70 Cryo64 Genesis 3 icon set created by Dario Arnaez (aka *DARIMAN)

the running indicators are called Willow Indicators and were created by $endosage.

well, i hope you like my first ever ObjectDock background.
i'm looking forward to your feedback.

How can I get the icons to look like yours do? Yours are text, I don't see that on my options.

well, it's not an option in your dock software.
in fact, those text icons are regular png replacement graphics as you can find them here.
i suppose i don't need to explain how you replace icons in ObjectDock, right? ;)
ooohhhh.... :star: :salute:
