Celestica by bgjerlowdesigns Celestica by bgjerlowdesigns
Updated 01/05/2011: Major update. Bug fixes, new images + new description & preview. This is the final update.

Updated 15/02/2011 (2nd time): Minor Update. Some fixed bugs on the dark styles.

Updated 15/02/2011: Major Update. New dark versions, changes to original versions and more. Also added a new preview image.

Theme Information:
Here it is, the final release of my latest visual style for Windows 7. I hope that you will enjoy this theme as much as i did creating it.

The VS is based on ~emey87's concept and comes in 2 versions: A light version, and a dark version. Be aware though that the dark version is not completely bug free. This VS also uses the theme resource changer software which is created to make your life easier. It simply enables use of system file images without having to replace your own system files. Download here (x64 and x86)
As it only works for some system files i have had to include the timedate.cpl as a normal system file. Both x64 and x86 timedate.cpl is included for both the light and the dark version. The system files included is only for SP1.

:bulletblue: On how to apply this visual style, see this tutorial

Download Includes:
:bulletblue: Celestica Visual Styles (4 in total)
:bulletblue: Explorerframe.dll and Shell32.dll (Only available through the Theme Resource Changer, read more above)
:bulletblue: Timedate.cpl (4 in total)

Credits:
~emey87 for the concept "Celestica" which this theme is based on
~MrFolder for the wallpaper used as the default background on the light version of Celestica
~Maegondo (www.sandbox-photos.com) for the wallpaper used as the default background on the dark version of Celestica
!xFino for the monitor used in the preview
Dave Senior for all his help and his WSB tutorial

A big thanks also goes to out to all my watchers and friends on deviantART.

Enjoy this release, and remember that your opinion is important to me, so please speak it :)
Even though i might not thank everyone for faving' this work, i truly appreciate if you do so!

Celestica is one of the most downloaded and searched Windows 7 theme. If you search with celestica theme this page comes at the top. It simply shows the public acceptance and popularity.

Sergio creates arts, not visual styles. Minimal, light weight and perfect. Creating a VS takes a huge time and effort and Sergio with his in born talent handles it perfectly.

Celestica is one of the best creation by Sergio. The perfect color combination, alignment of the elements makes it one of my favorite Windows 7 theme.

Thanks Sergio, continue the good work. We can expect some web designs, WordPress Themes from Sergio in future in addition to the VS.

Yeah, I reported it as soon as I saw it. I get immediately suspicious of deviations with comments disabled, especially if it's for something you download and install. Great-looking theme, by the way!

If you don't like my work, then that's okay. But to come to my deviations and be rude and offensive is not acceptable. If you have any critique, at least make it constructive critique, instead of starting to insult me or my work. Comment what you don't like it about it instead.

Hola Sergio.
Tengo una pequeña duda que no aparece en el tutorial.
Me gustaria saber cuales de los archivos que contiene el zip debo de reemplazar en la carpeta de windows.
Hay detalles como la barra de inicio la cual no ha tenido ningun cambio al aplicar el tema.
Los botines de navegación tampoco han cambiado y creo que el error estara relacionado con los archivos que tengo que sustituir.
Gracias de antemano tocayo. :D

Hello, first of all nice theme, but I have a few problems/questions with it.. here is a screenshot of the things I would like to change, the first being the "all programs" button, the glow/font doesn't look good to me and I'd like to change it if possible, the second is the glow/font color.. I'd like to change that if possible too. - [link]

There is yes, but you would need to buy Windows Style Builder to do so.

The icons are a mix of a few different icon sets. The library icons are HYCONS by *Delta909, and the HDD icons are included in Wave by =seahorsepip

This theme is simply beautiful. My only problem is, for the theme to show up correctly it needs the display on 100% and my laptop likes my resolution at 1920x1080... and I can't read that tiny text in all my programs. It makes everything like 5 or 6pt font xD I could get a screen shot. But thanks for the theme anyways, its lovely :3

I apologize for my late reply, but somehow this comment had disappeared from my sight :/

Anyway, thank you for the kind words, I'm glad you like it.
If you would like me to change the font sizes to a bigger one, please mention which size, and I'll send you a note with a new msstyles.

Oh that's okay ^^

I think it's more than the font that is causing issues xD well...
Resolution: 1920x1080
Display: 125% (has to be for me cause otherwise I can't see anything xD When I changed this to 100% the theme looked perfect. But it created a functionality issue where, when windows would pop up from say, clicking in amazon, I could use the window I was in... But to close it I had to minimize it (through the bottom task bar) and then open it again for it to realize the close button existed (it would just click on a tab I had opened instead as if there was no close button).

I'm still using the theme, when its on 125% it just doesn't have the circles for the close, max, min buttons and the scroll bar image is broken in half(but still works just fine). I don't know if you care for screen shots of any of the things i listed, but the theme is still beautiful and I love it ^^ you did a very good job :D

The start orb is not created by me, and therefore not included with the VS. You can however download it here: [link]
