Hextech
A dark spacey grungey like smf theme lol.

I was wanting to make another multicolor theme but this time a dark one. I started off with the background and then made the cool cat_bar background then went from there. I am still tweaking the colors for visibility and such.

With the exception of the width (which I'm sure I can change anyway) I really like this one.

Thinking I should just set a variable for the forum width to make it easy to change :).

Edit:

Alright I got two different styles I could go with for the drop menus .

1.  More of a top merges into the drop menu.

2. Bordered off but still looks good.

Also fiddled with the board icons to match the theme better.

Odd.. I am using Firefox and it works fine.

Possibly a settings or addon issue?

Anyways.. drop menu 1 or 2 :P?

As for the dropdowns, my personal preference would the hexmenu2.png one. :)

If you want to use the 1 style I would get rid of the top drop shadow, and have a seamless join between the menu bar and the drop. That can look good, but having the drop shadow interfering along that seam looks wrong to me.

Been a minute since I gave an update for this one.  I am pretty happy with it minus the purple one. Can't seem to find the right shade of purple for it.

Don't get too fixated on "I want purple". This is a common problem with multicolour themes: the author gets fixated on wanting a certain range of colours, instead of just sticking to the few that work really well.

With a dark background you will need a fairly light purple to get usable contrast for text. Something like #ac8cff. Not too dark, and not too saturated.

Going lighter was the solution for this one. Much better than before.  :)

Still working on it. Close to done though. Dark themes just take a bit longer. You get to where you think that you are done, then boom you find another white border or something lol.

Soon though.
