**Also Highly Recommended 'tweaks' for this Skin are listed below (like the wallpaper, sound scheme, cursor)**

I created a desktop that works just fine for me but may be too busy for others.  To each their own.

As I use the laptop this theme was build on for my job in IT,  I set up the launchers for things like Remote Desktop, GoToAssist Expert and so on. You may need to make a few changes.  (To change the Vertical Launcher, Horizontal Small Launcher, Folders (half-circle under the clock) and Website links (on the end of the spokes) you need to edit the Config.ini file under the Resources folder,  It's pretty self explanatory once you are in the Config.ini file.)

This new version has added a couple of skins, a new app, and I have cleaned up the folders, reducing the total size of this skin by 3 MB

Rainmeter Skins Used:

1. Avengers S.H.I.E.L.D OS Ver 1.2.0, by Daelnz - [link]

2. BlueVision V0.2 Alpha, by g3xter - [link]

3. Enigma, by Kaelri - [link]

4. Vuze Torrent Display, by SieSie - [link]

5. Hi-Tech Desktop, by takeshikawa - [link]

10. Rotating Sphere, by g3xter - [link]

11. QuickURL, by Geduget - [link]

12. Pacebo WiFi by Wiedzma - [link]

Required programs needed for this skin to function:

CoreTemp   To get the temps for your GPU, Hard Drives, CPUs to display in some skins.

SpeedFan    To see your fan speeds correctly (and a couple of the skins need this to display temps)

Optional Stuff I use to enhance this Skin:

iTouch   This is a nice addition to the theme, giving you a 'drop of water in a lake' effect when you click on the screen.

Blue Cursor   I can't get it to screenshot but trust me, it goes well with this and other skins like this one.  This is a .rar of the cursor image files.

Windows sounds    Save in .wav format. Taken from a few video games and sci-fi TV shows.   ArE YOu StiLL ThERe? 

LogOn Screen Changer   Right-click and run as admin.  Select a wallpaper and you have a new background for your log in screen

The Wallpaper  is simply the black Lenovo "Think" wallpaper that came on my T430.  I was just flipping through folders of wallpapers and this one just ... worked.  I may mod it to turn the 'dot' over the "i" from red to blue.

when i installed it, everything got messed up  and was not in place, the icons dont have the right size, and this data value thingys hae no backround and they look boring because of that.

Hi, I'm a big fan of this skin pack, but I have a minor problem. In the world time clocks (London, Tokyo, Ibiza), I can't seem to get the correct time to show. In the config files I have found #World1WeatherCodeLat# and #World1WeatherCodeLon#, but the yahoo weather code nor actual latitude and longitude numbers fix the time. Help please?

Hey I really like this skin pack, it's pretty awesome. I am just having trouble adjusting a couple of apps: Basically all of the current apps register my current location as Fargo, and the temperatures aren't adjusting to my current temperature (so I assume that they are recording Fargo's temperature), and the world times (London, Tokyo, Ibiza) are all showing the exact same time as each other. I've checked the config files and I found "#Measures\", so I'm assuming the skins use yahoo weather to calculate things ( I don't know ). So anyways do you know how I could fix these to show correct measurements for my area?

bit of a bug .. in fac it's not a bug ... its some lame ass invasive adware .... when you click 9gag in the avangers tweaked skin clock you get sent to 9 gag but if you click the round button under you get sent to some crap called ... no im not saying that kotaku is good or bad ... but since the other round buttons under the other website launchers sen you to the right website i say that kotaku is bad ... some lame ass site that relys on cheap tricks to get some traffic ... now for the fun part:
I can't find kotaku keyword ANYWHERE in my rainmeter skin scripts. any ide how that works?
