Let me know what you think by commenting right here or visit the Steam Forum thread @ [link]

Installing: Extract the contents to your Steam skins directory [usually C:\Program Files\Steam\skins\ ]

About: I find the default skin dull, lacking in contrast, and it simply doesn't fit with the new look and feel of the Steam store and forums which were updated at the same time.

With the Steam store as inspiration to maintain a unified look. It started with the buttons from the Steam store and grew from there with some personal touches. I find the result very satisfying. I hope you do, too.

Thank you for this awesome skin :meow:

There's a little buggy thing due to lastest steam updates. They added a little text whereabouts the Community so this doesn't look good.

I'd be happy if you could fix it.
Thank you :meow:

Hey Savage,

I came across your skin here on devArt last night. I thought I knew the name Savage Alien from somewhere, I just didn't realise it was from Savvy UI! It's nice to see one of the first skins for the 2010 UI still being maintained after all this time :) Keep it up.

Ha, hey Pulseh. Late reply [Aug-Jan gap in reply], obviously I don't check this often as I should. I'm everywhere, :), and it's cool to see a familiar name, too! :D

It's possible to make the avatars more bigger? (in friend's list)
savagealien Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2012  Student
Not that I'm aware of, sorry. :(
Robertto91 Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2012
nice, 9 months later xDDD :P
GorillaPancake Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2011
Thanks for keeping it updated :)
savagealien Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2012  Student
I'll keep it updated as I continue to use it. That's the bonus to making a skin. It has everything I want and I get to enjoy great comments like yours knowing other people are enjoying it too!

Codex-nz Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2011
fantastic skin dude :)

how do you enable the game icons in the list? Can't remember and just reinstalled steam -_-
llyodxmas32 Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2010
Very nice skin. I don't have the small icons to the left of the game's title. Any idea why?
savagealien Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2010  Student
Hi, thanks for liking the skin. To get those small icons, click on the + sign above the scrollbar and select the "icons" option.
GPhilli Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2010
Awesome, thanks! This is the first and only skin I have found for the redesigned Steam gui and it looks awesome.
savagealien Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2010  Student
Thanks, Philli! I'm glad you love it!
