Sweet love the steampunk look :great: are you going to share? I think it would look better if you got rid of the background meter.

I performed the steps you recommended and I am VERRY happy with the results.My Internet is giving me trouble and won't let me load certain sites.Unfortunately, weather.com Is one so I can't share until IT works( they are coming In three days to fix), but for now I am sure you are curious to see how It Is coming along.Thank you again for sharing your knowledge. :bow:

Nice, that looks so much better without the background on that skin.

I also updated the skin to remove the direction arrow when there is no wind.

Ok, so another nitpick.. ;-)

Wind is defined as "from" a direction, not "to" a direction. When they talk about wind direction, they mean "the wind is coming from the North"

Guess it doesn't fit well in your compass / arrow paradigm , but in my view, the arrow should be pointing in to the center to show this.

On this I don't agree, Weather vein's always point towards the wind
