I've also got idea its a chance to chew on some few smaller discrepancies. Sreens below are WIP and incomplete. There is still plenty of stuff to do. Tabs should be themed more in line with buttons, it not yet done since I have made buttons a bit larger, reduced their borders and it took quite some fiddling with coordinates to get it right. It seems I would repeat this adventure for tabs as well. I want to try to change cursors to fit overall colors better. I dream to improve or replace hourglass animation, its quality is below of what I would really like. The dream is to have enjoyable theme which is eye candy yet affords reasonable usability and looks more or less in spirit of fantasy-themed worlds/games and somesuch.
I would like to get some critique and ideas on what I could change to improve appearance and user perception. I'm also not sure if I should target releasing it as merely new version of Golden Delicious or go for making that a new theme. The former could aggravate some players due to considerable changes. The later would somewhat increase client bloat. So neither solution is perfect.
Some hints on what colors to try or what to change are welcome as well. As example I've attempted blue windows backgrounds instead of brown, similar to some fantasy themed games I've seen (full implementation of this idea would take me doing a lot of re-coloring, but screen gives idea what it could be, I can go for it if it seems worth of it).
