Theme based on Maya's color. As a Maya user no matter how much I love Blender I often get really annoyed by Blender's colors in the 3d viewport. It always seems to be hard to work in wireframe mode and the default colored lighting feels really distracting not to mention the background too dark for my taste. Here is what I came up with to solve this problem as far. 3d viewport is the main thing, but I also tried to make the UI similar to what I am used to with a few improvements trying to make it uniformly clear what is selected and what is not in the UI and making it flat for less distractions. The idea would be to disable additional Solid OpenGL Lights, set specular color to black and make the light come directly from the viewer's direction as well in the User Preferences System tab.

    Hmm, I have never used MAYA, but the colors are really nice! Good job, looking forward to updates : )

    Cheers, Rex

    I think this looks amazing. I've used Maya once but found it hard to understand. And by the way. Everywhere I go I see this guy.^ CaptainRex is literally everywhere in blendswap.

    Thanks. I am glad you like it. I noticed that over time what I use changed from this because I edit it from time to time as I work so I thought I would upload an update but then I noticed there is still a lot of inconsistencies in what I use. Some of the colors have too little of tone difference for them to be best visible. I think it's time to make an improved version of flat minimalist easy to work with theme. :)
