SQL Sever Management Studio 2014 Custom Solarized Theme (JK_Solar)

I was looking for a really good SQL Sever Management Studio Solarized theme and I found it rather difficult to find any themes that were created specifically for SQL Sever Management Studio. There are a lot of Visual Studio themes that are out there that you can load but the syntax highlight for TSQL was never great. So I took some colors from a collection of Visual Studio themes and created a custom SQL Sever Management Studio theme specially for TSQL. You can find the download link to the vssettings Theme file below. I haven’t tested this with any other version of SQL Sever Management Studio other than 2014 but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work on earlier versions.
