Steampunk Weather Icon and Widget MkII by yereverluvinuncleber Steampunk Weather Icon and Widget MkII by yereverluvinuncleber
Now 1.0.9 - This is a decidedly steampunk icon and widget that you could certainly use for something. Not quite sure what, that is up to you to decide. You could use the icon as a link to any weather monitoring tool that you have on your pad or desktop... or simply for anything you like.

This Windows ICO file, PNG icon file and .WIDGET file are all eminently usable on windows/ Mac OS/X / Linux &c.

This .PNG is larger and has more detail so that you can resize if you wish or use "as-is".
The .ICO file is delivered in 256, 128, 64, 48, 32 and 16 byte formats.
The .WIDGET file is for use with the Yahoo widget engine.

The Steampunk Weather Widget (** New Version 1.0.9 with many new changes **) is a heavily enhanced and steampunked version of Bogdan Irimia's Digistation widget (with his kind permission). Displays local air pressure, temperature and humidity, as well as the general weather outlook in hundreds of cities around the world.

This widget requires Yahoo widgets and an internet connection to operate. 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…

This widget works with Windows XP SP3 and has been tested on Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Mac OS/X.

Latest versions include the following changes :

// .08 added alternative tooltip to the main glass
// .08 icao code not sticking beyond the initial selection
// .08 icao code now displays in the tooltip
// .08 certain feeds do not round their temperatures, add rounding
// .08 fixed the data GET from running twice
// .08 reduced the pop up pause
// .08 help glass - left chain description corrected
// .08 Added dblclick on surround
// .08 Added tooltips option and preference

// .09 Full Menus
// .09 Widget can be locked in place on the desktop
// .09 added more error checks to a data feed failure
// .09 added language translations for latest error text
// .09 Added inline help
// .09 New licence code

The Instructions for the Steampunk Weather Gauge Widget are 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/widgets as it is the only payment I get for creating this small desktop addition :D

You may use any of my images in your own creations but commercially only with my permission. In all cases I require a credit to the original artist using my name or pseudonym and a link to my own site.


Thanks! Do enjoy the icon and/or widget
Download just there on the right.

Very nice upgrade!  I use this widget on my desktop along with the Westminster chimes clock, moon phases and picture widgets (and of course the dock).  I'm a huge fan of your stuff so keep it coming! Hug

This is really nice! Thank you! There should be more comments and llamas for you and your stuff. It's all so well done and the things you make actually DO something! As an art lover I really don't understand the enthusiasm over the my little ponies and the manga stuff. There really isn't much variety in it. Your stuff is so well done and it deserves more attention. Hug

I shall class you as one of my biggest fans...

Thankyou very much indeed. I put great effort into completing and making it as real and as fun as possible whilst actually working... and I do it for the sake of it. Your compliments and others like it go some way to keeping me going.

(The pony thing is popular because almost anyone can do it, it isn't really art. Allows anyone to express themselves but it does get a little dull after a while, personally I hated that Japanese big-eye cartoon stuff when I first encountered it in the 1960s, it seems so condesceningly childish).

Thank you. My daughter (she's 12) was really impressed, so I have to download the widgets for her, too.

Just added the saturn widget. It is a mere piece of eye candy, doesn't do much.

New version 1.06 with some new and vastly improved graphics on the location selector. some controls have been moved and new ones added, additional menu items have been created. Might be one more minor version and that's it.

I'm pleased you like it. I'm updating all my widgets visually and functionally, finishing those that I never fully completed. Each will work and operate in in true 'steampunk fashion'.

If you find time please vote for my latest creation on Rocketdock here: [link]
