No, they are drawn with Rainmeter code.

Hey there! This skin is fantastic! I have a problem though: the progress bar animations of the players aren't working for Spotify. It works in iTunes but for the Spotify player the bar isn't moving at all. I've updated to the latest Spotify plugin btw. Thanks for your help in advance :>

Is it possible to create a skin of just the moon phases? Like it's just an icon that updates based on the moon's current phase, no moving from west to east? BTW, I really like your work. Good job!

Hey, first of all, just want to say that I'm loving the skin. One thing that's just recently popped up has to do with the player. I'm using the space player with iTunes, and it's been working fine for a while now, but lately it isn't refreshing whenever I skip a track. It just sticks to the track it was just on, and for some reason doesn't sync up with iTunes upon startup. Thanks for the amazing skin.

Can't see what's wrong, especially if it worked before. Maybe you reset the settings and it switched player name back to aimp?

I checked the player settings, and it still says iTunes. Surprisingly, whenever I refresh the skin it works again, but when it changes tracks, it just stops.

Hey, I found out what was wrong. Apparently iOS 12.7 screwed something up and to fix it you have to revert it to iOS 12.6. Some rainmeter devs are working on a fix, so I think I'll just wait it out. Thanks again.

Hey there! I was looking for new Rainmeter skins, and stumbled across this one. I love the style and the dynamic effect seemed amazing and well thought out, so I decided to download it and test it out. After looking around a bit, and placing everything where I liked, I looked into the 'Dynamic mode', where I managed to input my City and Country, and clicked 'Apply Changes', and turned the effect on. However, I'm having a weird issue where the sun will not show up at all, and the colors are all washed out. The only way to fix the colors is to turn on 'Timelapse', and wait for the sun to get to a certain spot, then pause Timelapse. Here's an image of my controller settings: imgur.com/a/j89pd . I would like to find out what the issue is, not only for myself, but for others as well. Thanks in advance!

Right, others also had similar issues, and i cannot figure out why. The most obvious suggestion is to check spelling of location names and time format, but I guess that's not the case

Okay, I looked into the issue slightly more. I found that with my location set, when I went into the 'Info' tab, it would not be able to display the Weather, Wind, Moonrise/set or Sunrise/set. However, when I set it back to the original settings, it would display these without an issue. However, even with the default settings, it still will not show the sun or moon in Dynamic mode.


I feel that there is some sort of issue with Timeanddate.com and its connection to the skin itself. I figured that there should be some sort of setting that lets you toggle between different website sources, such as Timeanddate.com, Weather.com, or even the system clock if you just want the time to be correct, for a few examples.

Another issue with the skin could be the connection between the information in the 'Info' tab, and the skin communicating. There could possibly be some sort of coding error between the two, but I am not sure.

There could also be some sort of bug in the coding, that prevents the sun or moon from ever showing up, and not a connection error.

I myself haven't ever made a skin, so I'm not sure if any of this would be possible. If it isn't, sorry for taking your time, just trying to brainstorm some ideas.





Little update: I managed to get the lighting and weather working as it should in Dynamic mode. I had to set the clock to 24-hour based, and set the 'City' to a neighboring city, rather than my own. However, The dynamic sun/moon are still hidden. I'll let you know if I get them fixed, and how I did so.

Using system clock won't work as the skin needs sunrise/set time to calculate sun's position and lighting.
The Info tab and the controller get the information separately, so they are not connected.

Maybe sometimes on timeanddate.com the information for certain locations is unavailable, but switching to another weather site is pretty complicated as it would require changing a lot of things. This skin grew so complex I often get lost in its code myself.

Also, one reason for sun/moon not showing may be the weather.

Anyway, If you have any success I'll be glad to know.

Hi, I'm having some issues with two things, 1. the dynamic mode, and 2. the positioning of all of the objects. Whenever I add something new to rainmeter, say a simple volume controller, (please add that by the way, it would be an excellent feature) it messes the entire layout up, positioning items weirdly and messing up the whole image I have. I even followed OneMintyMoose's advice to fixing everything in place, and it worked until I added a volume control. For the first issue, dynamic mode doesn't seem to work properly for me. I have no idea if it's just me, or something else is up, but I might need a bit of help. I literally have no idea on how to set the dynamic mode up. Thanks in advance.

In Manage window you can set Load order for each item, from bottom to top, and then save your layout in the Layouts tab, so when things get messed up you can load your saved layout and restore their position
For the dynamic mode you have to:
1. Input your country and city
2. Switch it on
3. Hover over the controller
+check time format in Settings

Have you ever come across an issue where in dynamic mode the sun and moon refuse to show up at all(works perfectly fine in time lapse mode) and when it resets/refreshes it defaults to the night mode and visual scheme?


Regardless, This is without a doubt the best rainmeter skin ive ever come across and ill be using it dynamic mode or not. Many Thanks.

It also now refuses to bring up location info despite the fact the country and city(australia, sydney) are located in timeanddate.com

I personally never had this issue but other people had similar problems, so it's hard to say what's wrong. Can you make a screenshot of the Info and About window (right click > Rainmeter > About > Skins tab > controller)

I switched to 12hr hour to check its status. it now seems to do day/night mode better however day mode is sunless(the local weather is mostly clear incase its a dynamic weather change) unsure of nightmode just yet.

ah its alright. ill still be using it; just not in dynamic mode.

As an aside have you thought about setting up the orbits as a analog clock? large/hour, medium/minute, small/second or day of week. with the sun in centre and either a planet or rocket as the 'dand' in the orbit

Hi!  Just a tip for anyone looking to prevent messing up their layers by making an accidental click, I found a solution.  First, disable dragging in the settings tab of rainmeter.  Then, in order from your top layer to bottom layer of your plugins, right click, hover over settings, and select 'bottom'.  When all of your layers have been changed to the 'bottom' position, your clicks will not be able to mess up your layers or drag them around.

Can you make a screenshot? Also, timelapse mode is there for demonstration purposes and I wouldn't advise using it constantly as it's pretty CPU heavy. Does it work well in normal mode?
