After a lot of trial and error I'm proud to release Dominion (part II) widescreen skin for FM2011. I loved Nick Jones's Dominion skin last year and decided to release a version that suited my 1440x900 resultion. Well another year has passed and I have tried to do the very same again.
Not everything could just be transfered to FM2011 however, so you'll find a lot of graphics from Nick's other skin Galaxy (give it a try, it's pretty cool). I've also added some blue icons that originally came from a skin that matt1697 did last year. and hey look great.
Since this is somewhat of a widescreen skin, some boxes etc may or may not suit your resultion. Not much I can do about that, but feel free to mess around with the skin. Also as you might notice, I like the nauture backgrounds (I find them soothing), but you can use any background that you want. Just open the backgrounds folder in the skin and put a picture you like in there and rename that to "default".
On a last note, I have done a lot of little xml things that you might not notice. Hope you like.
Released: 14 Nov 2010

Thanks to Nick Jones for his Dominion skin (FM10) and his Galaxy skin (FM11), and to matt1697 for his Neue2 skin (FM10). This skin would look really bad if I had to do the graphics from scratch, so a lot credit is due to those two guys.
