BB'B Steampunk by Mordasius BB'B Steampunk by Mordasius
The Big, Bold and Brassy (BB&B) collection of skins was inspired by IllustratorG's Steampunk Construction Kits. The collection is intended for use on widescreen resolutions (1440x900, 1920x1080, etc.). The emphasis is on bars and dials for visualising information with details given in tooltips and/or pop-ups (mouse-over and/or left-click). What you get in this versions is:

- Analogue clock (left-click to change the frame).  There is an alternative steam clock here.
- Calendar with day / date
- RAM and SWAP memory usage
- Overall CPU usage with individual bars for cores 1-4.
- Network activity with ping return time. Left-click for histograms showing upload and download speeds. The ping return indicator uses the ColorChanger script by smurfier
- Wifi signal strength and visable networks.
- Animated volume control with auto-retract.
- HHD used space indicators for 4 drives.
- Weather skin with thermometers, barometer, wind direction indicator and 72-hour forecast from the Weather Channel
- uTorrent tracker using Lua script adapted from LuaTorrent 3.1 by jsmorley
- RSS/Atom feedreader built around Kaelri's Reader.lua script. Feed items are sorted by date/time and anything less than an hour old is bulleted. The neat little selector animation uses Kaelri's Universal Transitions script.
- The Music Player uses Poiru's NowPlaying plugin and works with a variety of media players (e.g. Windows Media Player, AIMP, Foobar2000, iTunes, MediaMonkey, MusicBee, Media Player, Classic, WinAmp, Spotify, TTplayer, VLC, Zune, etc.).
- Skin Launcher for the FeedReader, Music Player, uTorrent and Weather skins which you might not want to have on your desktop all of the time.

If you have any suggestions or questions concerning the skins, you'll get a quicker response if you contact me on the Rainmeter forums .

UPDATE 12-Dec-12: Added variant to display activity on CPU cores 5-8. It can be found as a variant of the Background skin (Background-8core.ini).
UPDATE 17-Jan-13: Replaced the silly little thermometers with a circular temperature gauge.
UPDATE 18-Jan-13: Fixed an error in the uTorrent skin that prevented it working properly on some machines.
UPDATE 30-Jan-14: Posted a VLC media player skin to go with this collection.
UPDATE 08-Mar-14: Updated the Weather skin to read revised feed from

First of all, love it, love it, love it.
Secondly, how do I change the weather skin to display in Fahrenheit instead of celsius, and how do I change it to my region. Thanks in advance.

Hey Awesome work dude!

A few questions,
1.) How do I change the Feedreader? does it only allow feeds? or does it also allows other websites' url? like Facebook, etc.
2.) How do I synchronize my Utorrent to the Steam punk uTorrent?
3.) Where can I find the music function? (I have the jukebox thingy(Open Music player) and the small volume icon(Middle click to mute) BUT I DONT HAVE THE MUSIC THING that's beside the jukebox of your image here and above the networking function, where can I find that?

I've sent you a note answering your questions as best I can.  If you have any further questions please raise them on the Rainmeter Forums  where it will be very much easier to explain how to get the skins working as expected.

Is there a way to size the Mordasius Widgets?
Mordasius Featured By Owner May 8, 2014
It could be done, but it would be a lot of work as you'd have to re-size all the image.pngs and change all the X / Y positions in the .ini files.

Amazing skin, but is it possible to just download the HHD indicators. Please
Mordasius Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2014
The easiest way is to download the .rmskin from here and delete all the unneeded files and folders.  Check your notes for detailed instructions :-)
