A note from the author:
New news icon made bigger - Some buttons resized - Contract offer page made lighter
Players profile change to show your logo instead of polygon next to picture, plus colors change
Small change to background dark - Changes to all text size - Kits made bigger
Date / time moved to bottom left - White text changed - Home page changed

You need patch 11.1 in order for this skin to work.

If you wanna have the hexgen to show on players profile, delete the player profile personal details xml in the panels folder of the skin, and reload the skin for the change to work.
