P I L E U S Suite includes:

***New Additions***
- Rainstaller by ~poiru makes installing the skins, font, and plugin a snap!
- Middle-Click any skin to launch Pileus Variables! Now customizing Pileus is truly a click away.
- New White Icons!
The original 2 sets were painstakingly inverted by ~SKINNYBOX and he graciously gave them up for download, for a total of 4 sets! So be sure to thank him if you like a white Pileus!
The icon size is still adjustable- just edit a single variable. You can still switch between the sets by changing a single variable, too!

- Clocks: Centered or Classic in 12- and 24-hour styles (edit the format in the variables file), and 4 Analog styles
- Notes: solitary and double
- Systems: solitary CPU (including dual), RAM, 4 HDD's, WIFI, and POWER configs, and/or everything in one integrated config
- Launchers: folders and applications
- Weather reader* (thanks to ~Nater43) and a second World Weather reader*
- WinAmp reader/controller
- RSS (thanks to ~saeedakd)
- Crest: a customizable icon you can use to spice up a boring desktop

Not included in this download:
- Gmail Reader: [link] by ~bhast2.
- Itunes Control: [link] by ~archon302.
- Double Gmail readers, RSS mod, Recycle Bin, and tweaked RAM single: [link] by ~EchoingDroplet

Thanks a lot! These are awesome.

I'm having an aggravating time trying to set up the weather app, I don't suppose you could explain to me how I set it correctly?
I'm not good with coding /at all/ so fiddling with this has been ticking me off quite a bit as a result lol.
A step by step with examples would be /much/ appreciated.

Okay I'm writing this with a HUGE THANKS to livinglightningrod for this suite. I have never been on DevianARt before and literally the only reason I made an account was to praise the creator.

It's an amazingly customizable suite and I can't believe the work and effort he put into it.

This thing was made 4 years ago and I'm sure so many people are still using it today. Everything is so well explained and I can just tell the effort the author made into making it customizeable!

My only request now is something in this style for the Music Player (SPOTIFY) - winAMP is kinda old now and also a similar type of format for links?

But yeah Thanks again for everything :D

It gets to 63% extracted and then says "data error, file is broken."

Nearly 4 years old and this is still one of the best suites. So easy to customise.
