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.

    I paid for Unity 4 pro, Android pro, and to extend the license to Unity 5 and now I cant have this feature.. I expended more than 3500u$s on Unity and what I get on Unity 2017 beta? a visit to my oculist.. this feature should be in free version.

    This makes the creators of Unity look really stupid. Thanks for the work around, Sean-Leblanc. Works perfect. You saved me from running to alts. Seriously, Unity devs... you're ridiculous.

    I just started using Unity and I'm honestly thinking of choosing a different platform because of this.

    Well It is actually a lot better with the dark theme hack, but I think it is not enough. Font colors should be white and crisp in order to avoid eye strain. Working several hours with the editor will be very difficult and will increase eye fatigue. I've tried the Unreal editor and if you put them side to side you will see what I'm talking about. It also have gray background but the the font is crisp, bright and it is easy to read. For a guy like me - with eye problems - this is essential. If not the theme - at least they should give us an option to control the font size and color.

    THIS IS AN EDIT FOR MY LAST COMMENT WHICH IS BROKEN IN UNITY 5.6.1f1

    For anyone looking for a way to get the DARK UI without having to buy/ crack premium or plus etc. Open the Unity.exe file in a hex editor (HxD is free and works great for this), search for:

    84 C0 75 08 33 C0 48 83 C4 20 5B C3 8B 03 48 83 C4 20 5B C3

    and then replace it with:

    84 C0 74 08 33 C0 48 83 C4 20 5B C3 8B 03 48 83 C4 20 5B C3

    Unity will use the dark theme instead of light theme. (works in unity Version 5.6.1f1)

    For previous versions search the following (I guarantee 5.4.2f2, though it should work with earlier versions than that as long as the hex values are still present when you search for them):

    1B 00 84 C0 75 08

    replace with:

    1B 00 84 C0 74 08

    I hope this helps anyone else with this stupid lack of a feature. I originally discovered these hex values on this forum here: https://forum.cgpersia.com/f79/dark-skin-unity-5-personal-114970/index4.html

    It is not the dark theme I want from Unity, I wish for a theme which doesn't heart my eyes. The current one with gray background gives me eye strain, because I have a medical condition. So when I start as full time indie game developer, if I switch to Unreal engine, this will be the MAIN reason. And again even white background with black characters, will be sufficient. Or at least give us an option to make the font bigger.
