    The last time @Brad-Smithee visited the Unity forums was in Nov 2018 and the Zios github repository hasn't been updated for 2 years.

    Unity 2019.3 has the long awaited UI overhaul, expect Zios to fall apart even further with newer Unity releases, I guess.

    Fair enough. I am really loving the new UI in 2019.3 anyhow.

    It was the only ability to get the true minimal (plain) dark (black) UI (which is the only true pro setup, fyi), so... R.I.P Zios project. Just in case. F

    Thank you. I placed the extracted folder '@Themes' inside this folder
    C:\Users\Stefan\MyFirstGame\Assets
    Then I started the editor (Unity 2018.4.13f1).
    It gave a warning about the use of an old API, went through a bunch of progress bars 'compiling scripts'.
    The unity editor opened, the Themes section in preferences was empty, the main menubar of the unity editor was rapidly flickering.

    also tried removing the '@' before themes, no difference. Reading through this thread, I realized that the author has not updated this package for some time.

    Yes, same here. Nothing in themes and flickering of menubar.

    The repeating fatal error in console 'NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object Zios.Interface.ThemeWindow.ShowWindow ()' is trying to refer to something that maybe doesn't exist in Unity anymore, so I'd guess this no longer works on versions released after 2018.

    The later versions of Unity radically altered several internal fields and handlings -- breaking Zios Themes. I can likely repair this, but I was told by several users that Unity 2019 essentially had native support for UI customization/theming. Is this accurate or should I investigate making fixes/updates to the system?

    Edit : Also, Unity forums apparently stopped sending me update notifications to this thread. Last email I received was January 2019.

    Difficult to really tell what kind of progress exists in that thread, but some of the approaches discussed are things I have systems already in place for. I did not see any publicly available files (besides some uss scraps), but things seemed to indicate that someone was working on something and that the *next* Unity might offer more.

    I'll leave it up to users. Does anyone feel it necessary for me to update/maintain Zios Themes?

    So I've been lurking here from time to time (since the plugin broke) and If that's an option, I would appreciate it! New flat UI is good, but neither of available color palettes (well, just two of them...) really fits my liking.

    Alternatively now that I've remembered about it again I will try to get something working myself, but I didn't succeed so far...
