FYI, this topic was moved without leaving a redirect in Help Wanted.  Makes it difficult to find.

It was in "Mod Requests", with a redirect ;)

I'm quite sure it was originally in Help Wanted, why would it be in Mod Requests?  Someone must have moved it there.  (Sir Osis never looks in Mod Requests.)

Melanie, attached are the files you need to modify Enterprise theme. 

- index.template.php goes in /enterprise_smf20final/.

- index.css goes in /enterprise_smf20final/css/.

- index.english.php goes in /enterprise_smf20final/languages/.

- The two images go in /enterprise_smf20final/images/theme/

Bloc used a lot of absolute postion to locate most of the things I moved, I stayed with that.  Checked it in IE11 and FF52, looks ok.  See what it looks like on a tab or phone.

Over on the Themes site there are literally dozens of sci-fi & fantasy themes:
https://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/index.php?action=search;type=8

I'd suggest browsing & searching around there.

Some of the non-sci-fi themes use slate/charcoal/black.   Some of the most widely used themes are in that color scheme, e.g., Alpha Cenauri:
https://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/index.php?lemma=2851

And others:
https://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/index.php?lemma=614
https://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/index.php?lemma=126
https://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/index.php?lemma=610

Just search for 'black' or 'star' or whatever...

 Thanks Shawn!

 Alpha Centauri I looked at,

 the other three are good, I may use one of them for the second site I am setting up. I think I am getting there though with the Enterprise theme.

The graphics of Enterprise might be re-used in my current theme project. Its a SMF 2.1 theme, and I do aim to convert the 2.0 themes(studio, alphacentauri, shellflife, enterprise etc) over to that "engine" (basically a re-written css/html theme from the default SMF 2.1 theme) , rather than convert them as they are.(which takes longer anyway)

Not sure I will be doing any new 2.0 themes though, its about high time SMF 2.1 gets some new themes. :D

Why not get something custom built in that way it is responsive as well.

Bloc! Hi, I thought you were gonski  ::)

that would be cool, as I have two more boards to open which will need to look different. One will be Star Wars and the other a Military themed one. Looking forward to seeing what you do.

this is how I have it set up now.

I did notice though some of the 'stickied' topics were showing up white on the directory (child board index) and you couldn't read them.

Why not get something custom built in that way it is responsive as well.

 I would if someone was willing to do it, in fact a guy on another board said he would, he also wanted $150 for doing it....  :'(

Well, creating a custom theme does take quite a bit of time and effort. The payment is an appreciation of the service and skill involved. ;)

 Yes I know. I simply can't afford it. But then I have done over 5gb of graphics work for people over the last six years, never charged a cent  :)

Themes take time, no doubt. When making free themes the key is to make them such that its easy to customize them later on. You never know what people will use them for - in contrast to a custom-built theme for a site. But that too is still a lot of work - at least if you like to do it properly. :) Because, why do anything if you won't do it properly?

 Exactly. I'm the same, anything I do for someone, be it my graphics, or even helping someone with their pets (I'm a qualified vet) I make sure I do it right.
