Simply Nova by Nova-7-Sev-dd Simply Nova by Nova-7-Sev-dd
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

Love your theme! I have been using ver 2 as one of my go-to themes for a couple of years now and just switched to this one ( I like the extra info for USB and emails). The weather on the other stopped working a month ago (and on several other themes as well). Weather.com stopped supporting rss feeds from what I understand, so the only ones that didn't break were using Yahoo. However, this one seems to be working fine, so I am not sure if weather.com changed support back or what.

Anyway, one thing I wanted to point out that is true to both Nova versions. The section of the weather skin that reads:

[MeasureDate]
Measure=Time
Meter=image
format=%d
substitute="01":"01st","02":"2nd","03":"3rd" . . .

The leading zero on the "01st" is inconsistent with the other dates. It's easy for we users to remove, but thought I'd mention it in case you want to fix it.

Anyway, thanks again for the hard work and happy new years!

Is there a reason my H drive isn't showing up with disks, it displays C, D and H but not G. I don't remember if I manually added H. I just reinstalled Rainmeter in windows 10 with my old settings in the documents folder that I backed up. Drives G and H both appear on USB drives though they are both SATA and hot plug are all disabled. Does it automatically add drives or do I have to do it manually? It's been ages since I first installed it and haven't used it in ages so I can't remember.

You will need to manually add them. Thankfully, these are shortcut additions that you can add in the variables section. Just some copy and paste work. Let me know if it gives you any troubles?

You will need to have Rainmeter installed. You can do that from their site rainmeter.net

Putting a person in the background doesn't make me more eager to download this RM pack, I only like the visual effects and the effort you put in this. :^)

Appreciate that - the wallpaper used is simply from my enjoyment. You're free to use any other one of course. Would love to see what you pick :)

Hi! I really like this skin, and I've been tweaking it a bit to suit my needs. One question I have, is how do I change the colors of the time/date icon? I see FontColor=#FCD#, but I don't really know how to change it to the color I want. Sorry to bother you, but any help is much appreciated!

Sorry so long to reply - I've been out of the game for a bit. The colors are at the top in the variables section. I've used HEX codes for colors most of the time.

More specifically, just want more of the same icons like yours for other sites/apps (reddit, google play, twitter etc.)

Hey man, quick question: when I try to add more drives (I have a lot) it just overlaps the last (#3) even though I've used the instructions and added a 4th and 5th drive, it still only shows three and the text overlays with it multiple times instead of adding more lines below the last one. Any way to fix that? i.imgur.com/lrPa0LX.jpg

You need to change your y coordinates. x is left to right and y is top to bottom

Just tried it on windows 8.1 pro. Works Great, no bugs so far and looks smooth <3 The best part for me so far is these shortcuts and system monitor that makes me easy to see whats going on while working with my programs. Simple, clean and useful - great job ^_^

Right click on either horizontal.ini or vertical.ini (whichever you use), click edit and you change it in the text.
