<edit> Credits to Florian Freundt were added / Orbital iconset is now OrbitalAGV iconset.


People who are using my appEXT icons may want to download the latest sets (both in deSTYL and ORBITAL flavour).
Thanks to user's requests they are updated and now contain 56 applications.

Actually, how do you apply these w/ Shapeshifter? I have an old version of Candybar, heard CB2 doesn't work well w SS2 and therefore haven't bought the upgrade. Do I need to? Or am I missing something somewhere? Thanks.

Sure hope I won't be held responsable
I'll take it as a compliment, so thanks.

Also thanks to others for your appreciation. Nice to meet some Orbital fans out there.

If icons are switched to Default Aqua (using SS2), CB2 seems to work OK.
Also it should be better than CB1 because it lets you change app icons as well as system replacements.
Anyway, create an iContainer, drag-n-drop it into the SS2 Prefs Pane and you're set to apply them.

Personally, I'm using ThemePark to install the icons within the theme. For quick individual switches (still a lot that can't be reached by TP or CB) I'm using FinderIconCM.plugin from Pixture Studios.

Perfect. I'll upgrade to CB2 and look at FICM. Thanks Gerrit, I really appreciate your help with this, the stellar work, and including a few of those EXT icons I asked for in this last release!

Do you have a fan club? I'M KIDDING!

These are groovy icons, Gerrit!

If you've got a guiKit or icontainer of them, you should submit them for inclusion on the ShapeShifter download tab.

Send email to the listed address if you want more info.

This set is amazing!!!

My only comment is that it's missing alot of common folders to make it a full system-replacement set. Any plans for this?

Thanks!!!

As some may know, I'm a minimalist myself. But nevertheless, all the nice comments speeded up the process - so to speak. Enjoy !



Once again, thanks to Laurent Baumann for letting me use his outstanding Flat White Bezels design.

This iconset is great!
Are you planning to do some more icons for apps such as Adium and Skype?

Is the iCal icon working for you guys? I use Candybar to change the icon but it still doesn't work that well when iCal is loaded and changes the date on the icon. It shows the standard iCal icon...

It's only missing the Finder, Trash and Empty Trash icons...

Any plans for that AGV?

@ FB Eye
Oops, included in the updated set. Here's a separate download.

@ vOne
I tried to compose an iContainer. Unfortunately, since it scans my Apps folder, I can only theme the apps I have over here. Anyway, feel free to try this and let me know.

Amazing. You're like a butler catering to the whim of us all Gerrit. Thanks VERY much! I don't see myself switching to another icon set or changing the Orbital theme for any reason until the next stellar work comes along.
