Axono Clock [1.0]

Axono Clock gets its name from an axonometric grid, in this case an isometric one. Its shape mimics both that of a nautilus spiral and a camera shutter.

The clock is composed of 6 triangles of proportional dimensions 1-6 as they rotate around the clock. Each triangle can be oriented in two positions: out and in. These two positions correspond to the two values that each sixth of the clock represents; that is, triangle represents one sixth of the clock and each position represents one twelfth of the clock. These can be easily interpreted into hours and sets of 5 minutes. The remaining minutes are shown on the 4 dots in the center of the clock, surrounded by a ticking seconds ring.

The clock features my hue rotation algorithm that rotates the color of the clock through the full spectrum over a set period which can be adjusted by the user. Two styles are available: solid and outline. The digits are provided for easy time reference, but can be toggled by simply left-clicking anywhere on the skin.

Several color and style variations are presented in the preview image, each with a different time stamp to provide insight into the clock movement.

I have three questions.
1. How do you change it from solid to outline?
2. How do you change the time it takes to change colors?
3. Is it possible to make it so that it stays one color scheme?
This is an awesome clock!

1. Right click on the skin > Custom skin actions for both the outline mode and the static color mode. 
2. Right click > Edit Skin, and in the [Variables] section at the top of the file, read the comments. The variable "Period" is the number of hours it takes to cycle through the color wheel. 
3. See 1. for how to turn on static color mode. In the Variables, "clr1" and "clr2" are the colors used when static. For best results, make these opposites (eg. The Red value on clr2 is 255-clr1's Red value, etc.).
