Artist's Note

A Rainmeter skin styled to blend in with the game interface, transparent until moused over.

Why Rainmeter?

Rainmeter is a highly customizable widget platform that is extremely light on system resources. Rainmeter skins are easily modified scripts, and their .rmskin installers can be opened as zip archives, making them more trustworthy than executables.

• Countdown and local time
