Not a bad idea, I have left it in there for testing purposes, but as time goes on and there is no problems, I can take it out.Mordasius wrote:1) I don't think you need Latitude and Longitude to show on the tooltips. The position on the map is enough to indicate the location.
I see what you mean. The skin is trying to update around 50 things, so UpdateDivider is definitely going to be used in the future. My CPU usage stayed at about 1% for the Rainmeter process all while EarthquakeMap was running, but other machines could be affected much worse. The reason why I didn't use a Border.png is because I wanted to make it easy for anyone to select an appropriate size they wanted without having to change any image files. For instance, if you open "Variables.inc" (or click the middle button on your mouse anywhere on the map), you can set the image size you want without having to edit anything else. I kinda like it that way.Mordasius wrote:2) It may be time to think about a Border.png file updated every 24 hours along with UpdateDividers on some of the other Image Meters. Updating the graphics every second isn't necessary and may be a little CPU intensive although it is still miles away from anything you'd notice on any machine upgraded over the past five years or so.
Honestly, I just might remove it altogether, since you select which "type" of feed to use. Plus it doesn't reflect the same time frame for the disasters, since I get that from another site.Mordasius wrote:3) I think the [Title] meter saying stuff like "Earthquakes in the Last 7 Days with Magnitude 2.5 or greater" has become superfluous and could be put on the tooltip for the earthquake icon.
I just translated every "event" from their feed, only taking out the earthquake "events".Mordasius wrote:4) I don't think you need 'Drought' on a map like this as drought is something that builds up over a period of time rather than being a recent, largely unexpected, event like the others.
I do not know what a "Marine" event is. I guess we will find out together when one happens.Mordasius wrote:Also what is a 'Marine' event and is there a need to differentiate between Storms and High Wind events?
"Storms" are different than "High Winds". For instance about a month and half ago, my area was hit with some really strong Santa Ana winds that did a lot of damage, yet no storm was associated.
If for some reason you don't like any of the disasters, you can easily take them out by editing this line in "Disasters.inc":
Code: Select all
Again, since there hasn't been every type of "event", not all have been tested. I am sure the one word events (like "CYCLONE" or "TSUNAMI") will be correct in the line above - HOWEVER, I am not sure if the two-word "events" from the feed will be correct (like HIGH_WIND or HIGHWIND or HIGH WIND). These changes will be made when they show up.
