Simple 3 letters

Submitted By Spike May (Spike_may)


ok the reason behind this is simple, i wanted a smooth simple icon set for my dock, something that looked kool but wasn't too flashy, and a friend of mine reminded me of a set of icons that were 3 letters per icon.. so i made my own set based of that idea, the adium icon is simple and effective a green ball appears when available, yellow for idle and red for away, not much more to it.. also if anybody would like the full set of icons i will upload them to my website just leave a comment asking and i will upload them :) enjoy..

also i have been asked this on a previous submission.. the wallpaper (titled "simplicity") is created by me and can be found at my website thanx :D

with what a tool can i create a dock like this? i realy want this dock!
and.. how the heck did he change the system font (like in the menubar at the top)
n what is that for a tool that shows ya the track n artist in a simpel lil window at the right bottom?
Thx in advance!

# by Spike_may on 10/20/06 at 09:25:38

ok lol alot of questions..

firs the dock background is simply a edit on the wallpaper in photoshop, i just cut and layered the picture added a shadow for effect

the system font is named "skia" and is included with mac os x, u can change the font using silk from unsanity

the thing above the dock displaying the mail, clock, hard drive info and itunes info is a application named Stattoo

also i have been asked how to allign the dock to the lelft like i have done, this was done with a application named tinkertool

hope this helps :D

# by Spike_may on 10/21/06 at 11:02:14

# by spazzling21 on 04/25/08 at 17:44:23

Your website is no longer working. Is there another place you have posted your dock icons?

# by twee.doderik on 10/31/06 at 19:58:07

mm still dont know how to make adium contact list totally transparent =(

# by Spike_may on 10/31/06 at 19:59:52

hey there, thats problem is overcome with a imple trick of the eye, lol all i do to make it appear transparent, is take a screenshot of the area behind where u want the buddy list, and use that as the list background.. hope this helps

# by lanky on 11/02/06 at 03:03:54

how do you make it so that the dock looks black and not grey?

# by lanky on 11/02/06 at 03:26:27

also, few more things :P

- some icons are being stubborn, and if i change them, they still dont change in the dock (skype, ical, photoshop elements)

- i cant figure out how to change the trash, finder, or dashboard

- do you take suggestions for other icons? :P (word, google earth, limewire, soulseek, colloquy, firefox are all popular ones)


# by twee.doderik on 11/02/06 at 06:55:34

HEY, man.. easy way is to use CANDYBAR

# by Spike_may on 11/02/06 at 16:58:35

as said by twee candybar is required to change finder icons and stuff.. also i have not finished the icon set, so some icons are missing i will update shortly and the blackborder behind the dock isn't part of it, its just a part of my wallpaper, u can remove the dock background using 'cleardock' from unsanity

# by lanky on 11/02/06 at 03:27:28

haha sorry, also, did you make the icons for your HD, externals, ipod, etc?

# by Spike_may on 11/02/06 at 16:59:20

so far i have done ipods, cds,dvds but am struggling on a decent hard drive icon.. when i finsih i will update it here

# by nifear4 on 04/08/07 at 19:52:20

On your DOCK it shows the wifi and the weather week.

I was wondering how you did that...

# by nifear4 on 04/08/07 at 19:53:31

Also, can you teach me how to use Silk? I'm confused on that
