Thread: Metropolitan

  1. #1
    Default Metropolitan
    It's been a few years since I've made a WinterBoard theme, so I decided it was time to go back to my roots. I've been working on this since June and finally have something worthy of sharing.

    Introducing Metropolitan. A unique theme where each icon resembles a building and together, as a collection, look like a tiny town. The icons are fun and have a modern, flat style but are also highly detailed. In a time where all flat style themes are starting to look the same, Metropolitan really shines.



    Metropolitan comes with 56 icons (at release).




    Metropolitan is compatible with iOS 7 and iOS 8 and works with the iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6, and 6 plus.




    The main wallpaper pulls the whole "tiny town" effect together. If you want something fun and truly unique, this one is for you.




    But if you want something more elegant, there are a few classy wallpapers that tie into the whole city theme.




    Here are two icons at their full scale so you can see the kind of detail that goes into each one.





    And of course I need to mention my sources of inspiration for this theme. The biggest inspiration came from the Silicon Valley tv show intro. That, and the new flat style seen in iOS 7 pushed me to make this theme. However, I really need to give a shout-out to jonny79 and his theme 266 metropolis. I was in awe at his work 4 years ago when he first showed images of it and was sad to see it slowly fade away without a release. Though Metropolitan is not associated with 266 metropolis, the basic ideas are the same and I would be lying if I said I didn't look up to jonny79's work and try to surpass the high benchmark he set with it.


    Metropolitan is live on Cydia and is $1.99.

    You can download the wallpapers now from here.

    Want to make a custom icon? Here's how:
    Download the icon template from here. The basic shape of the icon and the shading is outlined in the file. However, use your imagination if you want to expand past a basic square building.
    Now the important part is saving the icon as the correct size. To save the icon, do File: Save for Web & Devices. Select the PNG 24 default for the Preset. The image itself is 1200x1200 px but the final icon should be 120x120 px for the iPhone 5 and 6 or 180x180 px for the iPhone 6 plus. Change the Image Size to the value you need then save it. You now have a custom icon.

    I'm actually really glad someone picked this up and ran with it as I was VERY excited when I first saw the concept years ago. Do animated springboards work on iOS8? If so you could get traffic and people walking around in amongst your city / icons and it would be freaking awesome. I'm gunna keep my eye on this one. \m/

    Before I drop some cash on this are you taking icon requests? Given the very unique nature of these icons it will only work if all of your icons look like this.

    I can only take icon requests if you supply me with the bundle id and image names for each app. But I will do my best to update the theme frequently with new icons once they have been made.

    I have also added an icon template psd for anyone who wants to make their own icons.

    No worries. I don't mind if you post up the icon & I could do the rest (ensure they are in the correct bundle, correct names etc). Are you thinking you'll make icon requests as part of the theme updates (and therefore need the bundle info) or just post the images of the icons here and let us worry about that?

    I also think I'm gunna lift some imagery from Simcity Buildit iphone app for the wallpaper (for the roads etc) to give it a feel that would fit in with the icons better.

    I was going to release updates on Cydia so everyone can benefit from the additional icons.

    Seems fair mate. I have just purchased the theme and will come back to you with some bundle names if thats alright. I feel inspired to mess with the wallpaper (get more realistic looking roads, countryside) and maybe turn the status bar into a fence or something like that. The animated weather would look awesome with this - clouds floating over the city.
