VectorBlue is a Vector based skin that has a light blue modified appearance from the standard Vector skin. It uses the files of Vector for setup, which means that it requires Vector in order to work. It also requires MediaWiki 1.18.x or greater, which includes Vector, so this should not be a problem. It also offers the advantage that any customizations to the Vector files should also carry over to all Vector bases skins that were developed in the same way.
