but to me it's just another variation of Crystal.

What I really would like to see, would be an icon set, that uses a minimum amount of colors, like the icons seen on this screenshot: http://tokyo.cored.org/gallery/preview/codeblue_preview.png.

hmmm.... i did not intend to make it in any way similiar to the crystal icon set i realy wanted to bring over the icon style i first started on my homepage when i didnt even know that crystal existed but if you think so i'l have to accept that
=(

maybe you'l change your mind when you see the finished package on your KDE.
[ If you even download it =) ]

Maybe... Hey... it's just my personal opinion. The opinion of the majority rules ;-)

Many of the new icons have an exagerated fade effect. I don't like it.

It is also pretty bad for accessibility issues. People with certain eyesight limitations will have problems with those for sure.

You're working quite fast :)
Great job overall

fade effect? hmm i guess you mean the action icons ? please tell me excaclty what you mean.
The icons i dont like myself are the upward, 2upward, left, 2left icons.
Too shiny and too crowded.I have to change them or make new ones.

but it interests me what and which ones you mean excactly =/

thx for that please write back

The disapearing effect that you have usually on the bottom of many icons.

See 2nd preview screenhot, 2 last rows, all of the icons (except maybe for console).

One thing i really loved about the Crystal SVG Beta1 set was the fact that the back icon was green, whereas teh rest where blue, from what i can gather, this was an aciident, but IMHO, a very brilliant accident, as it (at least for me) improved usability so much, it broke up the 5 icons in a row which where round and blue, and helped to differntiaite between them all.

So basically what i'm asking is if a Green backwards can be included (or even better made default ;) )

8) Allready there but in the preview i only showed the default icons else i would have had 3 versions of reload buttons and 3 versions of search icons, and,and,and.... =)

Hope you understand, but when the first release of the whole pack is finished
you'l find your green one directly where you want it.

flow

For now I'l do all the main icons,
for example : the main actions logos that are missing and many many more....

But im allways going to post new icons later [ which should cover most of KDE ]

Shit this will take long =)

If everyone realy likes this theme so much i'l give my very best and try to cover whole KDE. =)

No, but i just tried this version out on KDE and there are many icons missing to display it properly.

Sorry, but i need my time 8)

I promise you that when it is in a usable state [ i guess 0.4 or 0.3]
you can download and use it

Dude, you make me smile :)

Design: excellent, very simple and it should stay like this. Not too many elements like in many other icon sets.

Colors: pleasant, not too colorful, and you can see at the first sight what is what.

Cheers

Wow, this has got to be the first time since Crytal that I have ever seen so many positive replies without a single negitive one.

Honestly, when I asked if you ever considered making an icon set, I figured it would be months before we ever got to see any previews... You must really love this stuff, that's great to see. This is begining to look like a very promising icon set, thanks for all your work.

I love them so far, very nice and clean design.

Keep up the great work and looking forward to the final designs.

Dude, if you do not finish these off and release them, we'll put a hit out on you ;)

Seriously, this is BRILLIANT work.

One thing, the CD icons, tilt them give them some depth, too flat. Thats my only critic.

Total respect to you.

OSX ... eat your heart out...
