I'm not around much these days - please reach out to me on my Facebook page if you have any questions though. I've moved away from Rainmeter development for the time being while I work on web development. Link is at the bottom of the description here. Thank you!

SimplyNova is an old skin of mine (my first as a matter of fact). After being voted Skin of the Month on the Rainmeter group it has gained nearly 500,000 downloads through out all the sites it's currently on and is used in many different ways by Rainmeter users, admins and teachers.

I have gone through all the code and corrected mistakes (always an ongoing process though), got rid of unneeded code, added comments through all files and much more. There are a few changes from the original - better link icons (which as of yet still need some work to allow for icons that you'll actually want/need as users.

I love seeing what people do with these skins - so if you use it please shoot me a message with a link. I don't care what you do with it - just like to see the different uses :)

All updates and pertinent information about this skin are now located in one of my journal entries due to a long list of items. Get it here: SimplyNova UPDATES Journal

Downloaded this Dec 25th, installed Jan 1st. the default install put the horizontal bar on my desktop with two icons, one of which took me to a microsoft scam page. Not Cool.

/edit - just completed virus scan, the link that opened did download a trojan to my system. I had used task manager to close the browser window that had opened, so the code had not run on my system and was still in my browser temp folder. MS Defender found and deleted the malware so I don't know what could have happened if the code had run. Very, very not cool.

Nova appears to have been inactive for a few years now. Someone else has grabbed the site for scam purposes since Nova hasn't been around to keep paying for the domain.

I love the skin.  Very nice, simple and clean.  I am trying to add drives 4 and 5. I have been trying to figure out the code and nothing is working.  Can you help me? thanks!

This guy thinks he's so cool, hackerman are you huh? Wahhhhh I got your IP address now I can hack the crap out of you and DDoS you and shit? Ffs, the internet and IP address... Having someone IP address doesn't make you have total control of them, you just know where they are now. It's like knowing the address of the white house, everyone knows it, but no one can ******* break in can they?

RatismalHobbyist Digital Artist is an *internal IP address*, and thus is useless to anyone hoping to gain access to their system.

Is the weather in Celsius or Fahrenheit? Also is it possible to change between them?
vandiepkcr's avatar
You replace WeatherUnit=f by WeatherUnit=m. Good luck to you

Final fix for weather:
Open the file "C:\Users\[User]\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\SimplyNova\Weather\Horizontal.ini" with notepad

Under Variables, replace the WeatherCodeLocation by finding yours here


Under Measures, replace the Url with this (open link in new tab first and then copy paste)-…
