BLoSC PlayStation 3 theme

Post by Olivus Prime on Tue Nov 15, 2011 1:41 pm

I probably should have posted this earlier, but I completely forgot about it during my time away from my PlayStation 3.

Anyway, using the theme creator tool provided by Sony here, I have been able to create a Buzz Lightyear of Star Command PS3 menu theme!

For those who know what the XMB menu looks like, here are the list of edited icons:
  • Game > Buzz Lightyear
  • Network > Star Command Insignia
  • Settings > Star Command
  • Music > Mira Nova
  • Photo > Booster
  • Video > XR
  • TV > Commander Nebula (no longer used)
  • Users, Account Manager, Friends and Add Friend > LGM
  • Block List > Zurg
  • Met Players > Warp (I was planning on using Rocket Crockett, but there weren't enough high quality pictures of his lovely mug)

The rest of the icons are the normal ones, only with a wacky blue liquid texture that I added to give variety (and because it looked cool).
The wallpapers are available in both SD and HD, and I'm sure many of you will be pleased to hear that they are not the ones provided by Disney Channel! They are screencaps from The Adventure Begins - one of Buzz's ship on the uncharted moon, one of Star Command, and one of Alliance Plaza.
A final few details include the theme icon, preview and message window, which are an image of Buzz, the wallpaper of Team Lightyear, and a black/white gradient box with a Star Command insignia in the corner, respectively.

I may be able to post images soon, but if anyone wants to download it, please suggest a site that I can host it on! Otherwise, I can email it upon request.

That sounds awesome! I didn't know you could do that. Smile

Hmm..I wouldn't know where to host such an awesome track, but the images would be cool to see! Smile

How long did it take you to compose the menu theme?

The theme can be pretty quick, or painfully long to create, depending on the complexity involved. The wallpapers were just a case of resizing some screencaps - they didn't take long at all. It took the longest to create the icons, as I had to find decent pictures of the characters, edit them, and resize them to fit the regular icon size perfectly (I did well for the most part on this, but Warp's icon is the one that ends up looking a bit big). I then took quite a while recolouring the rest of the icons.

Overall, with some dedication, it must have taken about two weeks, more or less. I can't imagine how long it would take to change every icon! I've started several of these, but the amount of dedication required means that I've only completed this one and a LEGO Racers one.

I was planning on making a BLoSC villain theme, with Planet Z, Zurg's Dreadnaught and Zurg Tower as the backgrounds. How long it'll be until that comes to realisation, however, I don't know.

I'll try and upload some of the icons and wallpapers, and I'll try and get some screenshots too!
