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

I could use some help with horizontal bar icons. How do you get those images and change them correctly?

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

The text in the weather bar seems to be overlapping with eachother on Windows XP Pro 64-bit SP2, latest version of Rainmeter. Is there any way to fix that?

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.

Hey Nova, first things first, I love your skin and I'm currently using it. Though I modified it to my needs. Link; i.imgur.com/KJFkhnk.png

Anywho, as you can tell, the gmail isn't working correctly. I've entered the information in, refreshed a few times and verified that it's the right username/password. And yes, it's gmail. Any ideas?

i wish some one would make a skin specifically for monitoring gpu performance. something like evga NVZ 0.4.5 but in rainmeter. im sayign you to, you desine seem simple, and kinda fitign for windows 8. i need somthing that feels overkill, red, black, and a lil white, and spits out as much info as possible. now that i tihnk about it, if the windows border was gone and the back was 50% alpha and the the rest was 25% alpha that would be about what im looking for.

I really like this skin. Nice job!
Ended up using this with a number of alterations that I did. I think it turned out pretty well.

Hey nova, this looks great. Ive been tweaking .inis. I successfuly got rid of the email portion I didnt want to use. THe only thing I cant figure out is how to change the headings (Network, drives, system, etc) on the meters to the right side.

Right click on the weather meter - look for WeatherLocationCode and edit the # as directed just above that code

How do you keep one skin on top, such as when you click on the facebook button, the horizontal bar goes on top of the weather and click and it does not look good.

There was an extra '=' sign in the 'Password' field above the 'Measures' section that prevented the email new messages from showing correctly. Deleted it to correct the problem :).

Otherwise, extremely great design. Look forward to learning Lua and making some skins myself.

When you edit the skin, you'll see in the variables an area for WeatherLocation - it will also contain instructions for getting your location code

Is it possible for me to change the seperation between the two time values and the Am/Pm? i changed the font to fit with my other themes and its too cramped but I really like the clock

:iconnova-7-sev-dd:
Nova-7-Sev-dd Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
Yeah that wouldn't be a problem at all. You'll want to go ahead and right click > edit skin and play with the X,Y numbers to get the desired spacing. I'm assuming you want it spaced from right to left so the X #'s are the only ones you really need to play with.

Would it be possible to add a icloud email counter underneath the gmail.

I tried to do it manually but it didn't work :( icloud is my main :( but I use both.

As far as I know, Gmail is the only supported email that would work with Rainmeter because it has an XML backend with it. I don't believe any others do that.
