"Blue-Sky" skin for giving Viewer 2 an overall blue theme

Use caution when installing these skins, as modifications to your installed software files are not officially supported by Second Life support


This skin was thought up to give SL Viewer 2 a brighter look for anyone that doesn't want the gray (or dark) look.
I have added a number of previously published viewer tweaks - produced by various residents and changed the overall color theme. A URL for these tweeks is also provided in the BlueSky-SL-SkinChanges.txt file included with the skin files. This skin is an attempt at giving others a little more option which could promote the use of viewer 2. I know for me a lack of options is a contributing factor for which viewer I use.
