Title: Custom weather scenes
Post by: Yvon on June 15, 2012, 02:44:08 AM

I?d like to know if is it possible to create a custom weather scene for my region, with the following features:
- A map of the region in the background.
- Put the icon (sunny, cloudy..), and the name of the city, for each city in the map of the region.

And in the predefined weather scenes, is it possible to change the text of the components (today, sunday..etc) in order to put them in spanish.

Thanks & best regards

Apparently no one wants to answer you, so I will.. 

I think it's doable, at least, for the most part.. you would just have to design your own 'scene'.  They have a bunch of pre-made weather scenes but none like what you're describing. Find the graphic you want for the map, put upload it into your resources, then go into your scene editor and create a new scene by clicking the plus sign on the left side.  Put that map graphic in as the background in the scene...then drag and drop the "weather items" where you want them.  To the right you can select "image" so it will show a graphic of the current condition.  Or you can select temp, or day of the week.. whatever you want to show.

Then go into your timeline and add the "weather player" wherever you want your weather widget scene to show, and then drag the scene you just created into the player.  When you double click the weather player, on the bottom right you'll see a few different tabs... one says "weather", and in that tab is where you can type in your zip code to get the correct forecast for your area.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong.. just thought I'd try to help.  As far as the whole Spanish thing, I have no clue about how to do that..

I have designe weather forecast and it works fine

But I have the same issue : ie having a map showing several location...but when I add the component in the campaign I can only specify ONLY ONE location... is there a solution to display at the same time the weather in several locations?

You will need to add the weather component multiple times in the campaign to be able to specify different locations in a single campaign showing on a single screen.
