Obsidianus 2.0  Vol. 1: System by r3dlink13 Obsidianus 2.0  Vol. 1: System by r3dlink13
IMPORTANT NOTE: I don't really care if people incorporate icons from this set in their own websites, graphics, etc., just PLEASE TELL ME so I know and can take a look :)

An design update of the original Obsidianus Icon Set [link]

This is the way the set was originally conceived: glassy and translucent from top to bottom. The new style allows for the icons to be even more translucent than before. The icons are also less visually obtrusive, meaning your desktop will appear cleaner. They look great with abstract wallpaper and in Cover Flow.

Volume one contains only the system icons (as designated by Panic's Candybar application) in order to release the update sooner and reduce download size for those who don't want the extra icons.

This updated icon set includes a full replacement system icon set with several extra icons, including additional folders and icons for your Boot Camp Mac and Windows partitions. Each of the the 100 icons is full 512x512px for Mac OS X Leopard.

Extras included:
- Uploads Folder
- Scripts Folder
- Chats Folder
- Experiments Folder
- Notes Folder
- Games Folder
- Photoshop Folder
- Vectors Folder
- Apple Folder
- Classic Folder
- Macintosh HD
- Windows HD
- Loose Parts Folder
- Alternate Finder Icon
- Replacement Dock

Installation instructions are detailed in the included readme file.

This ZIP download contains the CandyBar Icon Container, ICNS Files and Readme file.

Watch my DeviantArt or for the releases of the remaining volumes, including iPods and Applications!

**note: I have been asked several times about the name "Obsidianus." The name is derived from obsidian glass [link] and refers to the black, glassy quality of the volcanic rock.

hello you got my reply wow great! hey by any chance you know of any deviant artists that are going to release a mac os x 10.6 lion theme?
r3dlink13 Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
As far as I know, probably not. Apparently, since leopard was released, Mac OS X has proven challenging to properly theme. There was the app Magnifique that tried and eventually gave up. Then there was some awesome looking software called Facade that turned out to be vaporware. The only semi successful theme for leopard and later that I'm aware of comes from which is a glass theme that would go well with obsidianus but I've found it a little too inconsistent and buggy. If you're aware of something better, let me know!

Wow, those are beautiful, so neat and shiny, hehe. I would use them but I think they'd get lost against my black Iron man theme background :)
