DreamLadies and Gentlemen, from my last theme DeZire I present to you
Like a Dream... the way YOU want it.
I thought of that phrase the day I sat down and said, "How can I make DeZire even better?" and for the rest of the time making this theme I had that one objective in mind.
Creating a theme that not only pushed the bar visually, but allowed FULL CUSTOMIZATION for the user - Having WHICH icons you want WHERE you want!
ICONS FOR THEME DEAL
Ok everyone I have a deal for you! If you want the theme for FREE when it is released you can do the following (trust me it is so easy =):
- Create 50 Icons that AREN'T on the Icons List
- Create both HD (320x206) and SD (160x103) versions
- Submit in a zip for me to check and you'll be added on the "Icon Creators List"
- Make sure to include a text file with the icons you created!
- The zip should be named as follows "yourname - howmanyicons.zip"
On release (and afterwards) I will send an email to those on the "Icon Creators List" and they will be able to download Dream for FREE!
Note: The checking process ensures the icons are acceptable for release (not stretched images, good composition, suits nicely with the theme, etc) AND ensures the 50 you submit have not been made already*.
*There maybe a situation in which the "Icon List" is not updated when more than one person is making icons simultaneously and more than one person submits icons that were not on the list. IMPORTANT: I will accept whoever submitted first and notify the other person that the icon was already made.
Also to help with making the SD icons, search "imageresize" on mmi and look for the thread talking about resizing images from iphone 4 (link doesn't work for some reason). Credits to Kevin
Please watch the last video in this post for details.
ONE MORE THING!
Make CERTAIN the name of the icons you make:
- Are named EXACTLY (case sensitive, include/don't include spaces, include symbols if needed) as they appear when you go to Editing Mode in DreamBoard and choose from the list!!! - see video below!!
- For HD Icons (320x206) include "@2x" before ".png" (Sample... "[email protected]")
- For SD Icons (160x103) DO NOT include "@2x" (Sample... "Mail.png")
Icon Creators List

AUTO CREATE PERFECT DREAM ICONS FOR WINDOWS(UPDATED)
1. SETUP MENU
Dream comes with a fully integrated Setup Menu from which you can choose:
- How many pages you want
- The titles for each page
The Setup Menu can be accessed instantly from the theme so you can keep Dream the way YOU want. Want one giant page of scrolling icons? Or maybe ten pages for all your different categories? You choose!
2. INSTANT ACCESS TO EDITING MODE
Along side the Setup Menu you can quickly enter Editing Mode and position your icons where you want with ease.
3. UNIQUE LOCKSCREEN
Another thing you will notice about Dream is its rather unique lockscreen. The way it works is simple, slide the key into the lock then tap the lock (I added nice help tips for those who don't get it).
4. 30 HANDPICKED WALLPAPERS
I spent A LOT of time going through wallpapers (over a thousand) to find a nice collection of wallpapers.
There are 6 schemes (Blue, Purple, Red, Yellow, Green, Black) - lol the teaser says 5 - 10 wallpapers in each.
Each wallpaper is panoramic and scrolls with the icons.
5. NEW STYLE OF THE CLASSIC DEZIRE ICONS
Dream uses the same style of icons as the DeZire icons with a fresh look.
Here is a video on how to create your own using Photoshop (remember to add "@2x" before ".png" if you are using a Retina Display device).
Download PSD file here: Icons.psd
For the Icon Modders:
NOW ALL THANKS TO VOLTAGExDT
Dream Icons Web Album
Note: Small bug, when u save the image if it has a space in name it saves it as john_doe. Will get this fixed.

Are there any page indicators or folders? Looks awesome. I'm impressed. Love the setup menu. What's the eta and price on this?
And also. Will there be a UI? Or do we just use DeZire?

Dont mind the questions, fire away =]
- No widgets (ill be honest, there nice for a while then they are annoying, waste of space, ram/battery eaters MY OPINION. THATS NOT TO SAY I WONT ADD ANY IN FUTURE UPDATES)
- Icons take literally NO PHOTOSHOP SKILLS. It takes 1 minute TOTAL to make an icon.
- Also there are THREE vids lol
also i WILL ADD dezire UI for this BUT i dont know how. Can anyone tell me how to add winterboard images to a dreamboard theme
07-07-2011, 05:59 PM #8
I might give a shot.
And i'm my computer now so i have watched the vids. This looks awesome. I'll have to scrounge up $3 for this. Currently broke. haha
Also, sorry for sounding like a broken record, but any possibility of like a legacy DeZire DB theme? I'm sorry i keep asking, but ever since Angrypigs got canned, I've been dying for one.
OH and about the DeZire UI, usually that's done with WB as far as like SMS, Safari, iPod, Status Bar, Etc. Dreamboard can only do Springboard and Lockscreen. Hope that's what you were asking.

Man this looks sick! I'm getting tired of buying all these awesome dreamboard themes. But I just can't resist! This one is definitly going to be one of my main dreamboard themes. Great job bro!

What icons do you have or need? lol. I don't want make a bunch of icons you don't need. or already have.
07-07-2011, 06:13 PM #11
Yeh if there was a way you could join a winterboard them and a dreamboard theme in one package.
I may do a sort of icons for theme trade for some people, but still not sure =]
As for a DeZire DB port. Short answer: not any time soon. Long answer: I could, it isn't hard but I won't have time so please don't get your hopes up. I have less than ten days before uni starts again and I think making a new theme was a better use of my time than just a DB port. Sorry to disappoint =[
I'll whip up an icons list now. WAIT actually in the psd file you can download it has all the icons I have already made. (ill still make the list though)
07-07-2011, 06:15 PM #12
If we build enough icons, could we get it free? Some of us have no PayPal.
07-07-2011, 06:16 PM #13
Did you already make a dreamboard icon? If not: here. Also two tweet bot icons. Also the creeps, Deathworm
unoimkll : What do you think about the icons?
Edit: Named all appname@2x

Hmm. I could totally be interested in a icons for theme trade. hahaha.
And that's cool. Not holding my breath or nothing, just would really like it. And yes i totally agree as far as better use of time. This looks amazing.
And i just noticed that in the .psd. lol Sorry for asking. Should've looked first.

That was quick! Thank you good sir
I just uploaded the Icons List so you can know what has been made already. Make sure you include "@2x" if you are making the HD Retina versions (dw about SD I can convert them later)
By one package, I mean on cydia if you buy Dream you get the dreamboard springboard/lockscreen/icons AS WELL AS the winterboard UI and app skins... know what i mean?
