FM 2016 Skins - Sky Sports FM16 Skin
Due to demand I've released my personal skin for public use. Please see credits below, without their help it would have been much more of a struggle.

I've always favoured the sky sports skins of the past so I've attempted a more modern, current twist. Using the colours/style of sky sports news in particular as my main inspiration.

I will try and keep the skin updated.

Released: 29 April 2016
Updated: 31 May 2016

Disclaimer:
I PLAY ON SMALL RESOLUTION. I WILL ENDEAVOUR TO PROVIDE SUPPORT FOR EVERYONE BUT QUERIES FOR THOSE OF YOU ON LARGER RESOLUTIONS WILL BE DEALT WITH IN GENERAL TERMS IN WHICH I WILL TRY AND PROVIDE PRINCIPLES WHICH WILL HOPEFULLY RESOLVE THINGS FOR YOU. NO PROMISES BUT I'LL TRY AND ASSIST IF I CAN. UNFORTUNATELY I WON'T BE ABLE TO TEST FOR SUCH THINGS DUE TO MY OWN SYSTEM LIMITATIONS THOUGH.

I envisage issues with the action bar colouring, human profile lay-out, news section and match in between panels and possibly other areas for high res users.

    Sorry I didn't think I was successful in uploading my skin here.... Do you mean the 'people nationality icons'? The directory is: C:\Users\YOUR NAME\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2016\skins\SkySports\graphics\icons\26px and over-write "squad" and "additional squads" files. Not sure what you mean re. the inbox one but that's there too, aptly named "inbox" if you have found a more preferable icon. Sorry for the delay.
