Just letting you know, this is an OLD image of the dock, since then the icons have undertaken a major revamp and redesign, they now look a lot cleaner than these! ;)

My first ever DOCK SKIN!! I needed a matching style to fit my Metro UI Dock Icon Set - [link] so I made this!! As you can see in the preview, it adds a black bar under the icons when on bottom (on top side - it's above, on right side - it's on the right of them, on the left - it's on the left of them.) and I included a blue Metro-like indicator for a clean nice-looking style!
Hope you enjoy it!! :D

HOW I CAN INSTALL INDICATOR

Find your RocketDock app folder (Probably in Program Files or Program Files (x86)), go to the Defaults > DefaultIndicator > rename the current indicator to indicator backup or something and then put the Metro 8 indicator in that folder and make sure it's named "Indicator" then restart RocketDock and it should work.

Not quite sure what I would do for a Windows 10 theme, did you have something in mind?

Well, i was guesing something similar like this prntscr.com/81hnox
Where you can see though it but barely and its blurred behind and the indicator for open apps would be like on the taskbar when you open an app similar to this skin

So with that blur effect in mind, are you referring to icons or a dock skin?

EDIT: Nevermind, didn't process all of what you said apparently... dock skin, gotcha.

I'll consider the idea, no promises though. Thanks :)

Hi, the blue thing that should appears when your cursor hovers an icon doesn't work ... there is only the black bar...

Yea, sorry about that. I'm not exactly sure what happened. When first released it worked great... I'll see if I can maybe fix it.

Ive missed this so far. It would be nice if you could make larger preview image with the new icons. I would feature in my Foundry then.

I don't see the blue Metro-like indicator, it's just a dark triangle arrows, why?

What version of RocketDock are you running? I haven't used RD in quite some time so I don't know how well I can help you but you may have something set wrong on it.

Well I got it to replace DefaultIndicator. HAHAHA~
