NEW THEMES! (Dark Mode & More) - Feedback


GTANet

Recommended Posts

This time for real! Back in the day, GTAForums had a wide selection of themes maintained by different staff members (some even downloaded from theme sites back in the day when that was a thing...), that looked from pleasing to the eyes, to absolutely retina-burning. Real life demands along with forum updates over time meant that we preferred to stick to the tried and tested GTAForums classic colours, but, this is about to change with a couple of brand-new themes we have to announce, with a chance of more to come in the future...

 

GTAForums Nightshift - This should be self-explanatory. We've reached the modern age of the Internet and turned off the lights. You'll be missing out on the colours that GTAForums has brought to your CRT, LCD and now even OLED monitors over the years, but if your jam is the darkness (or the occult, or a spoopy version of GTAForums...) you can now switch to GTAForums Nightshift and feel at home! Perhaps we'll even add some pentagrams, Weegie Ouija boards... okay maybe not.

ScotForums - Speaking of that horrible pun (apologies to all Glaswegians) that probably didn't even work... The popularity of this Irn Bru flavoured theme could've fooled us, so we've brought this special guest back in all its Scottish glory, and with a few new additions! It looks like a lot of our members loved the wee cone as a forum Reaction, so we just made the GTANet logo suffer with one atop its heid. Do remember this was originally an April Fools theme so don't expect it to be maintained too much in terms of your suggestions, etc! If that's your jam and you want to rock the colours of Scotland and the colours of the nation's favourite drink, you can now do it!
Editor's note by Spider-Vice: I was absolutely flabbergasted at how popular this Scottish-themed abomination I made in a few hours was, just out of inspiration of a few things, such as Rockstar North & Dundee being in Scotland, uNi now living there, among other things. I'm very glad we're gonna keep it! 😂😂

 

 

You can use this topic for Scottish memes and actual feedback, as we'll surely still be tweaking stuff especially in the Nightshift theme, as per your suggestions, and as possible! OH! And if you haven't read our article or seen our tweets, have you noticed those shinies below some people's names and avatars? ;)

BTW, anyone including guest visitors can change the theme at the bottom of the page where there should be a Theme dropdown!

Very nice. I was just about to ask about a dark theme today. Good to see that feature.

 

Congratulations on 20 years. :)

I'd like to see the good ol' GTA San Andreas color scheme from the V1 forum.

We've discussed this, but we also don't want too many themes to maintain in case Invision decide to change something, then we have to go and do a bunch of modifications in each one manually. If we start thinking of something else we might make a poll with some ideas and see what's more popular.

I repeat... :p 

 

 

But in all seriousness, and understanding why some things aren't possible, that tile art was cool!

Nightshift looks great, I've been using it over the last few days to get used to it. I love the blue but this is very easy on the eyes. Great work on it @Spider-Vice and @uNi

I sincerely wish I had the cry-reaction for this :((

 

But great work though! I have already adopted the Nightshift and I love it!

It's great to have the option to change themes but I can't bring myself to change it. I'm so used to the dark blues mixed with dark grey that any other color feels weird to me (although I really like the color combination of the ScotForums theme). 😛

Nightshift is perfection. However, I notice it’s slightly dragging down mobile performance. I am using Chrome and Safari on iOS 14.4.2. Pages are taking longer to load and navigation feels a bit off.

Loving the Nightshift theme. Works great on Desktop and Android 11 on Chrome. Reminds me of the old "The Connection" theme by Luke and the guys made back in the guy. The reply editor is a bit slow for me though. None the less, nice effort from the GTANet team. Totally worth it. Happy 20 years.

 

Edit: The medals are back, yay!

Liking Night shift, probably don't have to use the boring reading mode at night now hehe. Sometimes at night when I switch to another tab from GTAF, it would feel a bit harsh on my eyes cause the normal GTAF theme is kinda dark as is and then suddenly going to a white screen...maybe it could get worse with Night shift but I'm really liking this theme and it's made it a little more exciting to the surf the forums now.

The issue is not with Nightshift but with the base template, and then it's not even that, it's an IOS issue, I get it sometimes as well.

Have been using the nightvision and love it so far! You have no idea how long I've been waiting for this, good job @Spider-Vice!

Unlike Scotforums (and ironically), @uNi was the lead designer here, props to go him, I just helped with small tweaks. :p

Just a small request since i saw this mentioned elsewhere the other day and thought it was a good idea, please consider adding this to all the stylesheets:

 

.ipsLayout_container {
	max-width: 1700px;
}

 

Also a suggestion for the dark theme:

 

:root {
    --general-dark: #999999;
    --general-light: #777777;
}

 

(swaps out the blue for greys)

Edited by suicidal_banana
wait what, some of that css was wrong, fixed now
