Editor: Dark skin theme in Free available in options.

Editor

It seems petty not to include the dark skin theme in Unity Free. Better would be to have it not as default. Migraine sufferers like myself would appreciate the option of having the darker look sometimes.

    Though I prefer the free skin (I like light themes better), the option to make it dark is a must.

    Instead of having light/dark themes, just allow for custom themes, each with their own color palettes. Scripts can refer to these palettes, allowing custom editor UI to have the same look and feel as the current theme without having to do arbitrary checks or assumptions.

    Then, for the free version, limit users to default light and dark themes. Pro users get to make whatever they want.

    I just switched to Unreal Engine just for this issue which is a shame really. I wont be paying one full year pro license just for getting started with an engine and i am sorry but my eyes hurt with the light theme.

    Just make Dark theme available for 1$/lifetime if you want money.

    Who locks a dark UI behind a $35 monthly paywall? I'd rather write my own engine than deal with the eye-strain that this causes me.

    Do you guys think Unity will hear us out? This is the most voted on subject here.
    If they don't respond to this or agree we know they don't give a flying flacka about you all.

    Which makes sense if they have not done anything about this at this point.

    It's funny how on the same web page, here, on Unity3D feedbacks, we see both "Your opinions counts", and this most voted active request, since 7 years, and 2nd most voted of all time (behind the Linux port, which was accepted).
    Apparently, either allowing the dark theme for free licences is a lot more developpement work than a full linux port, of our opinions don't count that much in the first place.
    (I hope i don't sound too bitter torward Unity's engine & people, it's an amazing work and an insane piece of software for free, just adding my votes for this.)

    I gave 10/10, because this is usually the first setting I ever make in any application/editor.
    Sadly, Unity (CEO, or whoever) decided to lock this feature away for Pro-Users only - meaning you would have to invest 1500$ first, before you can even test it out.
    Not being able to work with Unity long-term BECAUSE of reasons like eye-sickness or simply not wanting to illuminate the whole neighborhood makes this decision kind of paradox.
    It seems, Unity is happy with the pro customers they already have and don't need new ones.
    I will certainly never buy pro if I cannot thoroughly test it as long as I want to (at least a few months, even better would be a year or longer, since I am a hobbyist and dont have too much time - which doesn't mean I have no money!)

    Here, allow me to help implement this.
    Change the file to
    //if(!LOGGEDINUSER.PRO){
    //Settings.UI.Dark.Lock();
    //}

    I don't think that only the dark skin should be available, but also make pluggable cusomizable themes. It's boring that unity still has the same look since I've started using it in 2012 (6 years now)...
