Just a mod I made from Max's Alluminum Alloy. I made this a while back, but I never updated it... so here it is!



You can grab yourselves a copy here: http://homepage.mac.com/justspaztik/...Smooth_Alu.dmg

It's kinda big... I'm not yet a ThemePark Master Jedi.

So far I've only got a blue varient. It's late... I'll work on it tomorrow.

ENJOY!

I love it, the original was always a bit too "unsmooth" (lookit, invented a word) for me. You just fixed it all loverly.. Thanks a lot.

Thanks

Wasn't sand an Apple-supplied system replacement font in OS 9 days?

Nice mod by the way, have you altered other elements or just the titlebar?

looks nice, but sorry, the original aluminum alloys can never be out done by a mod, IMO

I don't think it is. Sand is bolder than that. Don't know what it is though.

Great!
I hope you make the graphite version soon.
...and i've always thought a pink variant would be cool.

TheSpaz: Are you planning an update to Smooth Aluminum with the recent release of Aluminum Alloy 1.6 from Max?
