color scheme
A big fan of the gedit color theme 'Twilight' by Will Farrington, I made a pretty literal translation of it for vim here. Originally, the only changes from Farrington's scheme were that I did away with the 'dark maroon' guibg and added Pmenu colors, but it has slowly grown to incorporate even more 'Vim-isms'.

install details
Just drop into .vim/colors. I haven't made terminal compatible modes yet, so it only looks proper in gvim. If you have any term prefs in your .vimrc (like I had t_co=256) comment them out if you plan to launch from a terminal window or the colors may be incorrect (I notice this on my linux box. I'm going to update with terminal compat modes soon - rob)
