Most skins are now available in a choice of three colours; Orange, Red and Blue. Simply click with the middle mouse button on the skin to cycle through the colours
So after 3 weeks of chipping away at this in between revision for my A-Levels, I've finally completed my first skin package. I proudly present S.H.I.E.L.D OS
The design of the skin is taken directly from the computers on the Helicarrier in The Avengers. I got all of my reference material from the actual designer of the UI for the movie.
The package itself contains most of the typical skins you'd expect:
Clock - Intricate clock design as well as the actual number version for clear understanding
Program Launchers - 6 small and 6 big launchers for opening programs/folders etc...
Web Launchers - 6 text based launchers for opening webpages
CPU Monitor - Support for 1-4 Cores. The monitor is designed to be more visually appealing then functional so accuracy of the actual levels is off. I plan on fixing this in the next update
Ram Monitor - Shows Ram used percentage
HDD Monitor - The outer ring on the clock skin displaying your HDD used space
Date - Date, month and day
Music Player - Can open your music player directly from the skin. Playback buttons, progress, player volume control and album artwork all incorporated
Shutdown Buttons - Buttons to shutdown, restart and log off
Recycling Bin - Opens the recycling bin. Also shows a current deleted item count
READ BEFORE COMMENTING
Make sure you have the latest version of Rainmeter!
Since everyone keeps asking, in order to change the launcher names/paths/icons simply:
1. Open <username>/Documents/Rainmeter/Skins/Avengers/config.inc using something like Notepad.
2. Contained within are the variables for all the launchers as well as the music player type
3. Change these as desired, save and refresh the skins.
For a list of supported music players and their respective codes see this page.

The border skin is now available in 1366x768, 1600x900 and 1920x1080
Update 1.1.0 =============
Major visual changes have been made to the border in all sizes as well as minor colour and transparency tweaks to all launchers, the clock and music player buttons. Just trying to get the whole thing as close to the original UI from the movie as possible
Update 1.1.1 =============
Added a 12 Hour version of the clock as well as a border in 1680x1050 due to popular demand. You can now skip through songs by simply clicking along the progress bar of the music player skin
Update 1.2.0 =============
Changed the Volume skin design to something better looking. Added a Recycling bin that can have its orientation changed so that it can fit onto most of the other skins.
