This theme was designed with a pencil in mind, so it's all about monochrome and soft gradients. The name refers to 3B, being the hardness code of a soft sketching pencil. Enjoy !

Gerrit, beautiful as always,

There is however one thing that bothers me a little bit about your themes....i don't like that the widgets are hidden on non active windows....im sure your intention is for a clean overall look, which it achieves, yet makes your themes slightly unusable for myself.

Great work though :-)

I know this theme has a lot of original work in it, but even in the SS thread, you mentioned this was heavily inspired by collide. My opinion is that you should let everyone who uses this know too. It's just my opinion though, there's no clear set of rules for this though.

Don't be offended Gerrit, I'm just voicing what I think is fair. Either way, really great work on this. I can't wait for the "next theme."

This is great Gerrit! One thing though... no text in the title bars of iChat windows (buddy list/individual messages)... it's a pet peeve of mine. I hate losing track of who I'm talking to. Any way that can be fixed?

Great work, as always!

The easiest way is to download Metallifizer from Unsanity's free products and demetallifize iChat.
From the information I was able to collect so far, I can't seem to fix it within ThemePark…
Same thing goes for Apple's Address Book too BTW.

Thank you all for your the nice comments, people !

Can someone tell me if this is a bug or a feature:

On standard Aqua windows... inactive title bars lose the 1 pixel border around the title bar. On metal style windows the 1 pixel border stays when the window is inactive. I like having the border on inactive windows. Is this supposed to be like that?

Your feedback is very appreciated and noted, TheSpaz. Thanks a lot.
Unfortunately, at this very moment the update isn't my highest priority - real life you know.

Some thoughts already : the borderlines dropping from non active windows is by design. Them remaining in metal windows may have to do with the OSX behaviour of metal apps. So I'm not even sure if I can fix it.

Thanks again for appreciating Bee3—, and for your patience

Just a minor update to my previous comment. I downloaded ThemePark and I fixed the title bar borders (for my personal use only). In my opinion it makes the theme a little more pleasant to use. ROCKIN' THEME though. Keep up the good work.
