'Allo folks,

I've decided to recreate this topic to get a better understanding of what people want from a theme and what does and does not work. I will also be clearing out skins that are not particularly used very much / at all and taking on feedback when creating a new theme for The Phantom Pain.

Please vote on which theme you are currently using and if you so desire comment on why and what you would like to see for a future 'Phantom Pain' theme.

Cheers,
MGSForums Staff

Industrial Black. Its just the easiest on the eyes tbh.

As for a future Phantom Pain theme, I think a simplistic theme revolving around the graphics of this would be sweet:

IB no question. From what I remember most of the other backgrounds are mostly white so it just looks bland, and like blindfox said it's easiest on the eyes. And it looks the best.

Any future theme should be like Industrial Black, MGSF Energy and Zeta original, because they use the whole width of the screen for the forums, and make them more readable. I like the MGSF Grey and others too but can't use it because it's centered and like 30% of the width of the screen is just empty space, the forums feels too narrow and squeezed or crushed.

Also, simpler the new will be, the better! I like how simple Industrial Black is. :) And that's the one I'm using.

Industrial Black.

Mgsf Big Boss is my second choice though, if I fancy a change its to that.

edit: I use industrial black because images rarely stretch the page, and I like the wide borders. With other themes I feel like I'm watching a 1950's tv.

MGSF Big Boss. Got used to it and I don't really like larger ones.

MGSF Gray.

Because I'm old school.

Nah, I use MGSF Gray because its the easiest on my eyes to read. I don't know how anyone can use IB and the other dark coloured based themes, they're painful. I'd like another light gray or white based theme, there's already a ton of dark ones.

Big Boss, for the reasons Shyne stated. Only drawback is you get page stretching more than other themes
