This is an analog clock with a Steampunk slant. It's intended to be an alternative to the clock skin in the Big, Bold and Brassy (BB&B) collection of rainmeter skins.

The gears rotate, the piston pumps, the tube fills and there is a steam emission every minute. Left-click on the clock to change the clock face. Left-click on the tube to change the tube colour.

You will need the latest beta version of Rainmeter to run this skin. Get it from rainmeter.net

Awesome!

Is there a possible way that You could add some sort of alarm vinculated with the steam?
Mordasius's avatar
Do you mean that you want to set an alarm time and then have the overflow pipe emit steam with corresponding sounds when the alarm time is reached?

Yes, is it possible?
Mordasius's avatar
Oh yes it's very possible, unfortunately I don't have the time to get on to it now.  Nice idea so why not have a go at it yourself?  If you get stuck along the way you can always ask for help the Rainmeter Forums.

Hey! Congrats for this great stuff! I'm just in love with it, it's the basis for my actual desktop theme.

I promise that. When it's finished. ;)

BTW, I'm looking at the coding you made on the CPU and RAM meter. I like it alot but don't quite get how you made the calculations on the ascending bard and the needles of the meters... Do you have a tutorial or something like that?
Mordasius's avatar
You can start by having a look at the example for a bar meter in the online Rainmeter manual.  The manual also has examples for other types of meter.

Cool man! But, how do you increase the size of the clock. I kinda want it to be bigger.
Mordasius's avatar
I would actually be quite a lot of work to make the skin bigger as you'd have to re-size all the .pngs as well as change all the X / Y positions in the .ini file.

Oh, ok. Thanks for the reply.

The 4 is written fault... It's IV not IIII, I'm sorry, it's still awesome though.
Mordasius's avatar
Actually most clocks using Roman numerals use IIII rather than IV.    This gives a more balanced look to the clock face and avoids confusion between IV and VI particularly as IV would be upside down.  The tradition is said to have begun with the Wells Cathedral clock built between 1386 and 1392.
