I've changed a few things with the BaseSkin made by michaeltmurrayuk, including the main background picture/ some game colours/ attribute colours and a few other things. [man of the match star and colour changed from Blue to Gold, the team morale buttons have been changed, the attribute improvement/decreased arrows have been changed.. etc].
