It's been a while since I've updated the launcher. I'm thinking since I've started doing a few widgets in the styler of the movie erani should add a movie era theme to the launcher

So a friend let me borrow his Moto 360. It was supposed to be temporary, but I ended up having to buy a new battery ($25), and I couldn't get it open to swap them so I had to pay (another $25) to a cell phone repair place to swap them for me, and they broke the part that holds the strap in, so I had to buy a kind of strap that doesn't use that part ($16). The watch can be found for $100 used, and I ended up paying $66, so he decided to let me keep it.

I've made a stripped down version of my app for it that just has watchfaces, but debugging is a real pain in the arse on the watch since it has no USB port (unless you expose the POGO pins inside it, and make your own cable...) and the +Android Wear syncing sucks (it won't transfer the app itself when I install my app on the phone, I have to have to use a sideloading program) But I digress...

Now that I'm caught up on the main app, I'm going to get back to work on the wear stuff. Sadly I can't support wear 2 as Moto 360 doesn't use it and I'm not abandoning old devices.

And done. I couldn't get a close-up of the meters on the right side which is why they don't look as good as the others.

Wait, the Sony Ericcson Xperia Play (Yes, the acronym for that is SEXPlay. The preferred device for STD\Star Trek Discovery) isn't supported by my app? How does that work? It's one of my primary testing devices!

Oh +Google Play, how can I fix this?

Dear Mr. Okuda: That is not how a graph would work. Pick a direction, numbers should not increase, decrease, then increase again. :|

Seriously? THAT'S how they did the joint/elbow?!?! I worked really hard getting that gradient to work on a curve, and theirs is just straight?

Mr. Okuda likes making everything different, whereas in a real UI all those meters would look identical. It's a real pain cause I don't like hardcoding things, so normally I have to make all the differences their own parameter. This time I gave up and hardcoded the differences based on their ID numbers. This is the wrong way to program, but I'm being lazy since this screen is just for show.

This took hours.
The starship is the easy part. I just use an image. The thing behind it, I have to to get the program to draw it. Luckily, the vector code saved the day again, which made making clip paths as easy as MS Paint.
