The Skin of Mayhem

Post by Captain Mayhem »

First skin completed! Thanks to a ton of people for holding my hand through the whole process. Alex2539 most of all for solving the mega super huge Uptime problem I had.


It's a thingy that tells you the time of day (not the time), date, year and uptime. Made it specifically for that wallpaper.

:D Yay, thanks! <3

Thinking about what I could do next in the same style. Temperature should be easy enough... Wonder if it's even possible to make an angled analog clock like that :| Without having to create 86400 individual images for each second of the day, that is. Music will unfortunately be impossible unless I cheat with the angles, and that'll just look bad.

...Might be possible with an analog clock though. 60 images for seconds, 60 for minutes and like.. 96 for hours. This one had 125 images.

Ok new project bbl!

Alright, finished the clock. 181 images, but doesn't even sum up to 1mb (very surprised myself, thought it would be a bit fatter than that!)


(Also, thanks to dragonmage. First time I visit a forum that uses HSimg)

Used to have an issue with the hour hand disappearing between 10 and 1, but I think I fixed it. Please tell me if it misbehaves again, and I will dispense some justice on its ass.

Here are the wallpapers... I really really like this wallpaper, and as I said the skins are tailored for it. But if you manage to make it look good on another, then awesome :D
