Daring Do Steam Skin by Falxor Daring Do Steam Skin by Falxor
Requested by :iconxxflamerunnerxx:

The quintessential explorer of Equestria, I can't help but relate Daring Do to Indiana Jones. I also doubt I'm the only one. This skin was difficult to do the tweaking on because of the color combination possibilities. Some colors are legible on others, but still look horrible. I mainly used the yellows in her coat - stroke, shadow, and main - to colorize the skin, using the greens, purple and pinks (her eyes) to add highlites, or lowlites, as required.

Daring Do is my favorite pony! I love this skin, but the text is sometimes really hard to read because the colors are very pastel-like and very alike in shade. Is there a way to customize it so you can make them a little darker?

Of course! I'm doing what I can ( difficult because school D: ) to work on the skins as time goes on, so, hopefully, I'll revisit Daring Do in the near future and fix up some of the colors.

That would be awesome! I saw other skins like that in the past by the cynicalTechlord. His skins are amazing, but some of the colors clash so bad, you can barely read them! His Rainbow Dash one had 8 colors and the colors mixed EVERYWHERE!

For some reason the font didn't change for me and the text in the chat is way too large. Do you know if there is a way to fix this? :/
But besides that, I love what you did! Daring Do is my favorite pony! :D

Well, I actually shocked myself and found the problem. I have OpenOffice, so I am missing the font you used which threw off the font size and left me with the default style. I just changed the basefont to the one offered in OpenOffice that was closest to the parchment one you used. :)

There should be a .TTF file in the skin file. Just need to install that by double-clicking it and it should work.
