Unscripted supports the creation and usage of themes which manage the overall look of the game and its interface. Themes are defined as a directory with a manifest and subdirectories of image files that contain the interface elements.

Ayu Dark Blue theme

Default themes

There are four themes that ship with Unscripted:

  • Ayu Light Blue (ruby-light)
  • Ayu Mirage Blue (ruby-mirage)
  • Ayu Dark Blue (ruby-dark)
  • Ring (ring)

All Ayu themes are variants of the Ayu color scheme with the accent color changed to the Unscripted blue color. Ring is the original Unscripted theme before the theme overhaul.

The game will try to set ring as the default interface theme if no theme is present. In the game's settings under Appearance, the game will allow players to select from any of the Ayu themes.

Creating a theme

A theme can be created by creating a directory of the theme's name and then adding a manifest file in the theme's directory called theme.toml.

Theme manifest

The theme manifest contains a single dictionary key, theme. The following is a list of all of the respective keys and values for the manifest:

  • theme - The root theme object
  • name - The name of the theme. This should match the directory's name.
  • type - The theme's color scheme type. Should either be "light" or "dark"
  • resources-dir - The path to the theme's folder
  • colors - The theme's text and interface colors
    • background - The color to use for a background when an image isn't provided.
    • interface - The color of the theme's foreground text
    • interface_active - The theme's accent color
    • interface_highlight - The theme's highlight color
    • interface_secondary - The theme's "muted" or "disabled" color
    • syntax - The theme's syntax colors
    • source_text - The color for standard source text
    • symbols - The color for code symbols
    • comments - The color for code comments
    • docstrings - The color for code documentation
    • strings - The color for strings
    • keywords - The color for keywords
    • numbers - The color for constants such as numbers

This is the manifest for ruby-light as an example:

name = "ruby-light"
type = "light"
resources-dir = "core/themes/ruby-light"

background = "#FAFAFA"
interface = "#959DA6"
interface_active = "#55B4D4"
interface_highlight = "#77A8D9"
interface_secondary = "#6C7680"
interface_button_idle = "#FFCC66"

source_text = "#6C7680"
symbols = "#6C7680"
comments = "#ABB0B6"
docstrings = "#ABB0B6"
strings = "#86B300"
keywords = "#FA8D3E"
numbers = "#A37ACC"

Theme resources

Interface elements such as frames, buttons, and checkboxes are drawn with image files, which are located in the resources directory of the theme's folder. The theme should contain files for the following elements:

  • Bars
  • Buttons
  • Checkboxes
  • Frames
  • Overlays
  • Radios
  • Scrollers
  • Sliders
  • Tabs

Most interact-able elements like checkboxes and buttons will have multiple states: idle, hover, selected_idle, selected_hover, and/or insensitive. Consult any of the default themes for the exact structure and kinds of files needed.
