It's a Christmas iconpack: Χ-maçons!
(That's pronounced khI'-mə-tsons
--> X-macons_Installer.exe (1.6MB) <--
Yes, I realize that name mixes alphabets from Greek, English, and archaic Spanish
, but I like it. I wanted the last part to sound similar to 'mas', but look similar to 'icons', but I like the sound of the archaic Spanish ç better than the French ç
. So sue me
That said, I fully expect it to be pronounced in every way possible but the way I want it
It's based around the native icons (as used in Tomethicons) I attempted to come up with icons that would evoke the native icons while being seasonal in nature of course.
The IconPack is configurable using The Configurator. I recommend 24px as the default icon sixe. (And for stixe skins, 16px for the Iconholder icons)
If you use a version of The Configurator dated before October, be sure to update it so it supports the STIXE Iconpack Extension Patch
To truly enjoy the set, turn off your icon mode if you use pro. (view-> Icon View -> Off). This will display the icons in their 'default' size. (as chosen by the IconPack configuration if you have the STIXE Iconpack Extensions Patch installed)
See the Necronimicons
thread for information about the STIXE Iconpack Extensions Patch.
Before anyone accuses me of being part of an evil atheist conspiracy
to take the 'Christ' out of 'Christmas', let's go over a little history. 'Christ' is a transliteration of the Greek word "Χριστοζ" (Christos). Χ is often used as an abbreviation among theologians and early Χians. (You've seen the 'fish' - ΙΧΘΥΣ in Greek - where ΙΧΘΥΣ is used as an acronym, the Χ standing for Χριστοζ.) So if anyone wants to force the 'CHRISTmas' issue, I would have to ask, 'Why are you trying to take the Χριστοζ out of Χ- mas?'. (Ahh, I see there's a Wikipedia article
on the topic.) Certain people like to blame the 'evil atheist conspiracy' for everything these days, but don't blame this one on us. (And by using the word 'us', I am in no way admitting to membership in, or the existance of, the EAC. *cough*
For reference, here is the Tomethicons icon set:
