Default How to find default V6 theme with colored VU meters

Hi, Im a total noob to Reaper. Im 90% happy with the Default V6 theme.

Im used to using Cubase where the VU meters show a gradient of color towards clipping where it turns red. With Default V6 its just green all the way then suddenly red. I looked at the theme tweaker in Actions and it has an option for changing the colors- but they dont change!

I really dont have time to learn to customize config files etc. (I actually tried a bit of this but couldn't get it to work). Im a little bit disappointed this isnt setup by default. I want to see at a glance which tracks are approaching clipping.

I would prefer to use a theme that is very close to the Default as Im still learning through Kenny's tutorial videos and want to be able to relate to what he is showing.

Can anyone please recommend a theme that is basically Default V6 but with more detailed colored VU meters (gradient or 3 colors etc)?

I would be very appreciative!
Thanks

I am working on a v6 based theme right now that have different shade of green at -18db, and yellow from -6db to 0db.

Will be available only in 1080p atm, but you can copy the meter files to your hidpi theme if you want.

Release soon, i think this week.

If you're okay with a tiny bit of work, right HERE. Unpack the theme, replace two images, refresh, done.

Hey thanks for the replies.
Your White Tie theme looks great!
Sorry, I am dumb.
I unpacked the theme, I guess I replace the 2 gradient meters images. But what do I replace and how do I get Reaper to use this new theme? I read your "2. Common tweaks to a REAPER theme" thread but Im still not understanding how to open this theme.
Sorry that Im dumb but I couldnt find any simple instructions.

Thanks

I should add that under "options, Themes, Theme adjuster" is greyed out for me for some reason.
