Custom templates R25 no go


I had a custum template, see attachement S24 VS R25, but after the complete overhaul of the GUI it is not possible to make your own template anymore.
A lot of icons are gone and changing the interface_icon file is a complete puzzle.
Does anyone have an idea how to fix this.
The answer from Maxon support is that testers and employees are quite happy with it.
I suppose they don’t use C4D on a daily base.


Bumping up the trhread, switching to R25, spent allready 1 full day trying trying to correct that mess. Does anyone found solutions for missing icons ?



I made a toolbar with text only for the orphaned commands, so I can read what they are


Damn didn’t receive any mail. Sorry for long time answer. Thank you guys, now we are in c4d 2023 and still icons missing, I guess the smartest way is @Decade one. Thanks again


I made a plugin to solve the missing icons thing, with a few bells and whistles.
I tweeted about it with a few screenshots…
Apart from the fancy borders and color adjustments, what it more importantly does is give anything which does not have an ICON a text based icon, with a unique color. That works surprisingly well, and IMO even a shity icon is better than no icon.

Even worse however, is giving everything the same Icon, which is what they have done in nodes. Unfortunately however, i can not change new node icons as there is no API access, otherwise I would have given them some procedural love as well.
