Editor: Dark skin theme in Free available in options.

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.

    A year ago my wife suffered a meningitis which led to complications and she lost the sight on her right eye making her lose perspective, and her left eye is at 40% sight and photophobic.

    We used to do games together as hobby on unity, and now is super hard for her given that Unity doesn't support Windows High Contrast Mode.

    I'm not asking for a dark skin theme on the free version, but to make unity more accesible by working properly with Windows High Contrast Mode, (dark skin for free would also help)
    My point is: unity should enable more accesiblilty options so anyone can do what we love the most.

    If you are on a Mac and you really want to have darktheme, you can use this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3wJgSWs90o&feature=youtu.be

    It works on Unity 2018.2 and it should work for long time.

    If you are lazy watching the video you can just replace

    with

    in any hex editor.

    Unity is about to get a brand new dark theme: https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/18348637/43683770-0a9a933e-9893-11e8-9923-ece4db51cfed.png

    I'm not sure it will be free or not.

    Please make dark UI free, even though I do not work a lot at night, even then it still easier on my eyes.

    @MRDUDE - you spread FAKE NEWS. You should research before typing. The MacOS Mojave release notes CLEARLY states that "Dark Mode will need to be built into third-party Mac apps that don't already offer a dark option when macOS Mojave is released." - If Unity doesn't add Dark Mode support then switching the OS to Dark Mode will not change the appearance of the Unity editor.

    Seems like Unreal Engine is the way to go. A lot is now better in it along with visual quality and all is free with dark theme included.

    Seems like I'll move on to UE4 then.

    Here are you sitting with your dark themed FREE Visual Studio COMMUNITY, playing around in dark themed Photoshop and listening for a music in a dark themed player, then you want to do something in Unity, so you alt+tab to it and OMG MY EYES, IT BUUUUURNS!
