Steampunk Desktop by Rarayn Steampunk Desktop by Rarayn
Sick of the default XP theme, I decided to do some mixing and matching of various bits and pieces from here and there to get what I consider a 'perfect' steampunk setup. However, the project had to be scrapped due to the lack of a permanent and free program to modify my XP theme.

The XP toolbar had to be pasted in from a different screenshot I took a while back when I still had the free trial of WindowBlinds installed.

The cursor can't be seen in this screenshot, but is located on the zoomed-in ObjectDock icon there.

I used the following to get this setup:
Programs:
Stardock WindowBlinds.
Stardock ObjectDock.
Stardock CursorFX.
Rainlendar.

Themes, skins, etc:
Steampunk theme for WindowBlinds.
TransBrass skin for ObjectDock.
Agaz Icon Pack for the icons on the ObjectDock. [link]
Oxide Cursor for CursorFX. [link]
"Rail Haven" by Marco Rolandi. [link]

There are some epic steampunk skins out there now for stuff. Check out the rainmeter ones, & there's one for Launchy, Rainlender has 2, & there are a crapload of amazing icons and widgets by yereverluvinuncleber.deviantar… and if you do a search for "icons of the british library" here you'll find a lovely and amazing large set of beautiful steampunk icons all in one package.

Nicely done! Though there's also a little Art Deco-ness to it as well.

Thanks!

Not all the proper Steampunk stuff I found looked good, so I sometimes had to use bits and pieces from stuff not related to it in order to get the desired look. The architecture on the buildings in the wallpaper also has a bit of an Art Deco feel, I suppose.

It would make a good Bioshock desktop with a few tweaks, though.

Still, nice work!

That is one magnificent desktop, old boy. I haven't noticed your new avatar 'til now. Is it very new?

Ah, no, I changed it a few days ago, so you didn't miss anything.

Glad you liked the desktop.
