Earth Icon and Desktop Widget by yereverluvinuncleber Earth Icon and Desktop Widget by yereverluvinuncleber
This is the newest version of a zipfile containing both the earth icon and a working earth widget. The widget earth is a moveable widget that you can move anywhere around the desktop as you require. The widget is usable on both Windows and Macs.

This is part of a small set of icons/widgets for your desktop, the next is the 'God of War', the planet Mars.

This is the latest version of a widget that you could certainly use on your Windows/Mac desktop. It is a lovely piece of eye-candy as well as being useful useful in a "War of the Worlds" or steampunk styled theme. This is one of a small set of icons/widgets for your desktop, the others are a typical set of Victorian desktop acoutrements. Double-clicking on a widget will cause a personalised Windows/Mac application to fire up. The first time you run it there will be no assigned function and so it will state as such - then it will pop up the preferences so that you can enter the command of your choice. The widget takes command line-style commands for windows or Mac OS/X.

Not quite sure what you are going to use the icon or widget for, that is up to you to decide. Perhaps a link to Google Earth?

o This PNG has more detail so that you can resize if you wish or use "as-is" on Rocketdock.
o The Windows ICO file is also bundled, delivered in 256, 128, 64, 48, 32 and 16 byte formats.
o The Widget is a fully functioning widget that you can run on your desktop with the yahoo widget engine.

Widget Instructions: The widget is a Yahoo widget and it needs the yahoo widget engine. The widget functionality is self-explanatory, tinker with it and you will soon get to grips with it. Download yahoo widgets from here:

desktopwidgets.zenfs.com/4.5.2... (it has all you need to get started).

and the Mac version of the Yahoo widget engine here:

desktopwidgets.zenfs.com/4.5.2...

When you've installed the engine, simply download the widget - it will install automatically.

Here is just one more over 250 steampunk icons that will leave your Windows or Mac desktop looking absolutely spiffing. There is a whole set of the little thingies and I must say they do look very steampunk indeed! They really are a suitable replacement for the boring old default icons that come with Rocketdock/ObjectDock &c.

This widget and the others like it will spruce up your desktop and give it a bit of Victorian class. Full instructions can be found here: lightquick.co.uk/instructions-...

The only condition for downloading and using is that you leave feedback. Please leave a message and rate the icons as it is the only payment I get for creating this small desktop addition :D

If possible, it would be nice of you'd vote for one or two of my icons on Rocketdock here: rocketdock.com/user/107284/add...

I like this. A suggestion - maybe giving the widget some functionality like visible daylight or even season would be good ... also, scaleable size.

Scaleable size I will do. The other stuff is possible but difficult, done it once elsewhere but would need to adapt the code. I have so many irons in the fire...
