FM 2021 FLUT skin dark - Version 16.0

Dear all

This FLUTSKIN version 16 is the final version of FLUTSKIN for FM21!!

A great thank you to all FM fans who choose to play with FLUTSKIN and always keep me motivated to still improving the skin and gave me new ideas!!!

A special thank you to all of players who decided to distinguish my work with a donation!! Although just a small part of FM Players who use the skin made a donation (I edited the skin as a hobby and, as you know, completely free), I always feel honoured and happy when people recognize the work done and decide to contribute. So, I reinforce, I have to give a special thank you to that friends of FlutsKin!!!!!!

Also a recognized thank you to those one who help me answering the questions and requests and adapted the FlutSkin (namely and specially Rosek for the adapted version for 2560x1440, and Richbell, for the adapted version with hidden attributes!!!!! ).
And, of course I don't forget the skinners community who also indirectly contributed to FlutSkin with their creativity.

Also a special thank you to PATRES10, from fmslovakia for the 2D default kits (especially tailor-made for FlutSkin) anf to Michael Murray since I started editing the match inbetween highlights panel based on his amazing work!!

Now is time to stop editing the skin for this season. I wish to return for FM22. Lets wait and see since no one is able to predict the future.

- Following the great idea of majesticeternity, Tyburn and a31632 (from Sports Interactive community) I included in several xmls a code for personalize the background in specific panels, namely club overview, player overview, board room, human profile and team training. These codes are not “activated” by default but if you want to have a different (customized) background in each one of that panels you just have to activate the codes. In the read me file I explain how you can do it.
- Nation overall panel
- Nation overview panel
- Human profile panel
- Player profile stadium option in player overview panel
- News panel

The Skin pack also includes:
1. “Round country flags”, “round continents logos” and default logos specially made in metallic style by BRIAN-Q from sourtitoutsi. Those graphics will be displayed in the title bar.
2. Background maps for confederations, also made by brian-q. Thank you brian by your great work and for your collaboration!!!

You can download the 2D packs prepared for Flutskin (titlebar and player overview panel). For that you should search for that kits pack elsewhere since the download link in FMScout is down due copyright issues.
However, if you prefer edit your own kits, I also included in the pack a .pdf file explaining how you can edit the kits for Flutskin.

You also can download the stadiums megapack and the citypics released by DAZS8 (thank you, my friend)

For those who want to make the game more difficult, now you also can download an adapted version of the skin (v. 15) with the attributes values hidden. This adapted version was an idea of richbell and, although with my help, it was richbell who also did the majority of the changes. Thank you my friend!


Important note regarding TV LOGOS:
Although the default tv logo is the one I use, of course you can easily change it; for that you just have to go to skin/graphics/icons/tv logos. In that folder there is a alt folder with many TV logos. You just have to replace the tv logo.png and the tv [email protected] for that one you want. Of course you should rename the new logos as tv logo and tv [email protected] You also can use other logos made by you. The procedure to use them is exactly the same. However, I should remember that yo should use logos with the right height. For tv logo you should use 25px and for the @2x you should use 50px.

As always FlutSkin is completely free to download and I hope you enjoy it. However, if you want, you can reward my work donating whatever amount you wish. Any small amount is really appreciated.

You can do so by clicking the button down below:

Resolution requirements:
This skin was made to work properly in 3840x2160 (4K with windows display settings 200%) and also 1920x1080 (1080p) full screen mode, sidebar icons only. As a result, some panels won’t work properly in other resolutions..

How to add Flut Skin in FM21

Download and extract the .rar file (using either 7-Zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for Mac).

Place the "fm2021flutskin_dark" folder here:
Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\skins

  1. Create the folder "skins" if it doesn't exist.
  2. Start FM21 and go to Preferences screen and then into the Interface tab.
  3. You should see FM 2021 Flut Skin dark - Version 16.0 as an option in the skin drop down of the Overview box.
  4. Hit the Confirm button.

Please note this skin is provided as is. It has nothing to do with Sports Interactive or SEGA and won't be supported by them.

    hi richbell82, i didn't overwrite the old version
  • zamek9's avatar
    hmmm it works but only in the team staff, not in the players ... where is the problem?
  • zamek9's avatar
    the only annoyance is that you cannot change the colors of the player's attribute bars, I changed colors, cleaned the cache, and no more ideas what else I can do, it seems that red, orange, white and yellow are assigned permanently
  • richbell82's avatar
    Bruninh07 did you completely remove the last skin and then add the non attributes version?
    make sure you don’t paste over the previous version. If you’ve done that try clearing cache and reload the skin.
    hope this helps
  • bruninh07's avatar
    Hi Flut, mine is not like yours, can u help me please?
  • richbell82's avatar
    Glad you like it zamek9
    told you it would be worth the wait!
  • zamek9's avatar
    And with the accessories, the "more realistic" mods, game is totally awesome!
  • richbell82's avatar
    It’s working fine for me. I have tested it and also Flut added some xml coding for some areas I had missed.
    loving this way of playing!!
  • Flut's avatar
    zamek9: for the version of hidden attributes work (with hidden attribute), you should remove the original version of the skin.
  • zamek9's avatar
    all ok, you just have to set it up yourself (hidden by itself doesn't set itself - at least for me)
  • zamek9's avatar
    Unfortunately, the player's attributes are invisible only in the player's preview, you can see everything when you enter the profile

    Thanks for the shout out mate. Bless you. I hope others enjoy it as much as I do. I like the fact it encourages you to go watch a player first before signing them. Using the scouting system and then studying and weighing up options. Oooooh it’s brought my love for FM back stronger than ever before.
    What you do with your skin design is truly incredible!! Flut you are a true genius!!

    @brunoFLIP: first you should include in your skin the folder properties of my skin. After that…well, I need to know where do you want to include that column. Could you please tell me?

    @zabak: you should have the pack of kits adapted for flutskin. You can find it HERE

    @ daniel10.santacruz: you can do it in the settings.xml. Change the following lines of code:
    <colour name="good attribute background" value="green 200" />
    <colour name="excellent attribute background" value="green" />

    @Clemns: do you have the kits pack adapted for flutskin? If you don’t have it, you can find it HERE

    @saturno: Olá. Obrigado :)
    O xml é abilityinformation.xml (localizado na pasta player). Thanks. The xml is abilityinformation.xml (located in the player folder of the skin).
  • brunoFLIP's avatar
    Hi Flut, how did you get the con/pre in one column like the old fm? I like that you added that if I hoover the heart, but I would rather have it like you do. Thanks in advance
  • zabak's avatar
    Hi Flut.
    I love this skin

    I Have a problem with player overview panel

    Kits doesn't work in player overview panel

    How can I fix it?

    Please help me

    can I change the green color of the attributes?
  • Clemns's avatar
    Hello ,
    I can't get the jerseys when you click on a player when the jerseys are clearly visible in the club's vision. This is due to what? Thank you
  • saturno's avatar
    Só agora é que percebi que também és de PT LOL. pelo teu avatar. Pah skin TOP já uso isto desde que me lembro, muito mas muito bom trabalho. A cena dos números já corrigi, mas o painel com os atributos escondidos de CA e PA continua cortado, qual é o xml disto para ver se consigo mudar alguma coisa?
  • Max_Power's avatar
    Thanks to you, dear Flut. Don't worry, maybe for next year you will come up with something. Thanks for the work you do!
  • saturno's avatar
    Ok obrigado
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Max_Power: Okay. I understood. Thanks. In meantime I tried to include that button but it doesn't work (I place it in the header, near the ingame editor and also in the preferences panel and in game status panel but it doesn't work....) :(

    Hi saturno: for the number size you should edit the kit icon34.xml. Regarding the other problem, try to clear the cache. exit the game, download the skin again, keep this skin only in the skins folder of the game and reload the game.
  • saturno's avatar
    Hello flut great jog in this skin!!

    How did you see all the data in capacity panel I only see the following:
  • Max_Power's avatar
    hi Flut ... when starting a new career you can choose whether or not to hide player values. If you choose not to hide them, you can no longer do so during your career. In my opinion there should be a function that allows you to "redo" this choice.
