Octavia Steam Skin by Falxor Octavia Steam Skin by Falxor
Octavia Steam Skin

This skin was done as a request by one of my friends after he saw my Princess Luna steam skin. This is the second I've done, and I found this one the most difficult to start - coordinating all the colors was fun. Anyway, as I'm still new to Steam Skins, I'd appreciate any constructive criticisms people may have.

V2: Changed the color of the account name in the upper-right corner to increase readability; Added handling for the new "Friends" Navigator Link at the top of the UI.

V3: Added handling for the "Big Picture" link; Tweaked position of the Community sub-links.

I've gotten most of your skins,but I've noticed 1 problems with them. the User tab with your user/screen name on it isn't beside Community anymore, it's overlapping with the left and right arrows that are in the top left corner of the Steam UI. Is there any sort of fix for this? I tried updating Steam,but I've got the newest version.

I've also tried removing the skin and reapplying it, and I've tried other skins, but they all have the same issue. I was wondering if this was a common issue? If so, is there a way to fix it?

It's a problem with the skin and Steam, really. Steam was updated and that UI link was added. However, skins made before that update have no support or handling for it, so it just sits there, overlapping like you said. A few of my skins should work effectively, though, as I've updated them to work with the latest Steam updates (well, mostly, at least).

In any case, I'm doing what I can. I do have a job now, though, so my updates will be a bit slower. I have not forgotten these, though.

You're not dumb, and the font size is part of the skin itself. In order to increase it, you would need to change the code in the files. I can look into increasing the font size, though, so thanks for pointing that out to me.
