Firewatch real time day/night cycle

Real time Firewatch wallpaper that changes the day/night cycle as the day progresses.

This wallpaper includes features such as:
  • A background that changes every 15 minutes to simulate real life day/night cycle accordingly. The wallpaper consists of 96 images. You can choose between 3 background types; the firewatch lake, the firewatch watchtower (distant) and the firewatch watchtower (close-up).
  • Slight particles effect in the background.
  • Clock - both 24 hour and 12 hour support and support for country specific date translations.
  • Current weather temperature (both celsius and fahrenheit support). The temperature updates every third hour. Remember to enter your own location/city when the wallpaper has been downloaded. This feature has to be enabled in the settings. If you choose to enter your own API key, the temperature updates every minute. Signing up for an API key can be done here: OpenWeatherMap[home.openweathermap.org]. Keep in mind that it will take a few hours for the key to be activated by OpenWeatherMap - be patient.
  • Firewatch's prologue song playing in the background (can be enabled/disabled).

I didn't create the artwork itself - I merely added a bit of programming magic to it. The artists's original work can be found below:

Why is there just 4 formats of date and all of them contain year? I don't want to see 2021 whole year. I know what year is right now :D Also why is there no option to show wind or humidity?

It would be such a great wallpaper! if there were no unlogicallogical gaps in clock/weather part. I'd like to use it, but I need to see wind (because I fly with drones often) and I need to have clock more visible than fokin year :D Who has year on clock for gods sake :D
