ThaImpact Dock by OtisBee ThaImpact Dock by OtisBee

this is the ObjectDock background as it can be seen in my april impact desktop screenshot.



(get the RocketDock version ported by ~eos8 here)


the icons seen in the preview image are called BASIC5 TEXTUAL with more than 200 png icons and a psd file included in the zip.



the clock icon in the middle of the dock was created by dobber 72 and can be downloaded here.
unfortunately i have no idea about the running indicators and they are not included in the download.


oh, ...and if you like you can download the ThaImpact Walls as well.




INSTALLATION |

...put the "ThaImpact" folder in
C:\Programs\Stardock\ObjectDock\Backgrounds
then rightclick your dock and navigate to
Properties >> Appearance >> Background >> ThaImpact.
apply your changes with "ok" and you're done.


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

Echt klasse - nur leider finde ich den 'Stardock' ordner auf meinem rechner nicht. Gibt's da bei der deutschen version eine andere bezeichnung?! Wenn ja, welche? Danke im voraus C:

oha sorry, als ich dieses dock gemacht hab war ich noch auf windows XP und ich nehme an, daß du dein ObjectDock auf win7 installiert hast, stimmts?

wenn ja, dann schau mal in C:\Program Files (x86)\Stardock\ObjectDock\Backgrounds\Non-Tabbed

das müsste passen. ;)

Soweit ist alles klar, nur leider habe ich den ordner 'Non-Tabbed' nicht. Steht nur was von 'Tiles' und 'Zoomers' /:

sorry für die kleine verspätung. :hmm:

ungewöhnlich das da kein solcher ordner ist. was passiert denn, wenn du einfach selber so einen "Non-Tabbed" ordnet erstellst und meinen skin dort hinein kopierst/verschiebst?

how you hid the icons? and put letters that do not need to have fixed the mouse emcima to appear?

uhm, pardon my ignorance, but what's a "mouse emcima"? :confused:
..and what do you mean by "hid the icons"?
i actually didn't hide any icon, i merely exchanged them by utilizing the ObjectDock app's context menu, as shown when rightclicking on a dock icon.
here's the [link] to the icons i used. ;)

Well, it might help a little bit if you take all the files in your program files for object dock, Kind of copy the entire object dock "program files" folder and zip it. Then make it for download on here. That would save alot of peoples time. And you'd get alot more likes, not trying to be a critic. I like all your work. This theme was awesome. But the dock..i'm having a bit of trouble with it..

"..Kind of copy the entire object dock "program files" folder and zip it. Then make it for download on here.."
hmm, .. frankly, i don't really see how that might be of some help. :confused:
i mean, why zip & upload all program files, when all you need is just the skin (background)?
however, it might be worth mentioning, that this skin only works if you'd have your dock on the bottom edge of your screen.
if you want it to be displayed at the top edge, then you'd have to rename the background.png to background top.png.

"..And you'd get alot more likes.."
well, as of now this skin is among the top5 of the "Most popular deviations in ObjectDock ever submitted" and i'm quite confident with all the feedback and acceptance it got so far. :lol:

I would love it, but it refuses to show up. When I apply it to my dock it just turns transparent. It would be much appreciated if you could include the .dockzip file with this to make it easier.....

OtisBee Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2010   Interface Designer
on 2nd thought: is there any chance that you've tried using this skin on a dock that's placed at the top edge of your screen?
well, that's what might have caused the transparency issues you had, because this skin is for bottom edge docks only.
try and rename the background.png to background top.png and see if that works. ;)

Actually, my dock stays at the bottom, the tabbed one moved about as needed, but the primary one just stays at the bottom. I thought I had set something wrong, but I haven't had any luck making it show up. Maybe it just hates me? I've had my comp do that to me before after all......

"..I've had my comp do that to me before after all.."

does this mean that it happened with other docks too or just with my ThaImpact dock?
if this is an issue that occurs with other skins as well, then i don't think it's something i can fix in just my skin.
sorry. ;)

Just that one dock, but I've had it do strange things on various programs, for no apparent reason. Once I do my reinstall of my system I'll give you a heads up as to whether it works or not.

:iconotisbee:
OtisBee Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2010   Interface Designer
maybe (just maybe) it has something to do with the fact that this dock skin is less high than other docks, because i created it to work well together with my BASIC5 TEXTUAL icons. [link]
so, other (regular) icons are likely to exceed the dock skin area on both sides (top & bottom), which then again might be a reason for the dock to act "odd" on programs that are not configured to have one of my BASIC5 icons as their representing image, yet.
well, just a wild guess, tho. :hmm:

GravityDragon Featured By Owner May 10, 2010
I honestly couldn't say. I did try removing all of my icons, just to see if that helped, but no luck. I'm also running it on a fresh install of win7, and it still refuses to show up. I feel kinda stupid not being able to make it work, but not much I can do about it I'm afraid.

hmm, i never really tried creating a dockzip file and i always asumed that it would pack not only the skin and separator etc., but the actual icons used in that dock as well for a later usage after a new and fresh system install, hence making it rather useful for personal needs only. :confused:
however it is quite odd that this skin wouldn't show up on your display at all.
never had any complaints thus far. :hmm:

YOU NEED TO CREATE ALTERNATE VERSIONS WITH DIFFERENT COLORED-BORDERS. THAT BLUE ONE IT HAS NOW LOOKS OKAY WITH BLUE DESKTOPS, BUT NOT WITH ALL WALLPAPERS...

Great dock setup! Would be wonderful if you made one for tabbed dock as well
Reply
:iconotisbee:
OtisBee Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2009   Interface Designer
thanks. :lol:

well, ..since the dock is a lot more slim than a regular dock it actually is kinda tricky to accomplish a matching tabbed dock without the tabs being too much off.
besides it would look rather odd if you'd use "systray" functionality for one tab and the icons would then exceed the slim dock.

maybe there's a workaround for this, but unfortunately i'm just a noob to creating all sorts of different OD zoomers, tiles, tabs and bars.

sorry. ;)

i asume you're using your dock at the top edge of your screen?
well, since there's only a "background bottom.png" in this theme you might wanna try to duplicate and rename it to "background top.png". ;)
