Im loving Dacals LS tweak, however I have a question.
can y'all give me some pointers on what to tweak to get dandelion wind effects to show in conditions other than wind. such as cloudy and partly cloudy, also i kinda miss the baloons.
im just messing about with it now and would appreciate any pointers.

Edit : Thx Destan .
For the ballons, i will not add them, it's an uniAW property .

Warning - long post ahead....
I'm confused because how can I have a "Desired Accuracy" of 3 Kilometers with a distance filter of 1M, it doesn't add up!
Distance Filter controls at what interval a SNAPSHOT of your location is taken and WRITTEN UP in the XML.. It does NOT care one iota WHAT you're close to. It only cares that you've traveled the meters in the window that you set. At 50 meters -- it will say "TIME TOO LOOK".. TAKE A LOOK "SOMEWHERE" and report its findings to the XML.. Think of it like a TIME INTERVAL before a write to the XML happens.. BUT WHAT DATA it reports to the XML is NOT the Distance Filter's job.. Obviously this setting DOES, in Constant Mode, know that you've traveled 1M or 50M or 100M so the tracking is down to at least 3-4 decimal places in the GPS tracking as per your thorough explanation..
BUT the Accuracy Filter - is only consulted AFTER THE Distance Filter threshold is met. Music example: The Distance filter is like the Threshold setting on a compressor and the Accuracy filter is like the Ratio of compression. Maybe that will click it for you. But anyway.. when the Distance filter distance is met - a snapshot of location is taken by WW - but a snapshot of WHAT? Is the lens zoomed IN or OUT.. At 3 Kilometers (widest snapshot) think of Google Maps on your computer ZOOMED OUT.. What's the LARGEST city near your vehicle.. Well for me that would be PHILADELPHIA.. And when I set the Accuracy Filter to 3 Kilometers - near my home I only get Philadelphia and its neighborhoods reported as my Location to the XML.. For this setting my 'educated guess' is that the decimal places are less that WW consults of the GPS satellites. But when I change that setting to Best for Navigation (1 meter) -- I can get the EXACT street address of where my car is.. But whether I have the Accuracy filter set to Best for Navigation or 3 Kilometer, the XML still only updates at the distance filter's set distance. Not before!. That statement should be illuminating too - I hope; because Accuracy Filter doesn't care how far you've traveled - it is only the lens zoom level with which the phone is looking outward to your surrouindings to determine your vehicle's relationship to cities/towns around you.. So for the BEST settings, in the Accuracy Filter, the more decimal places are being used for the calculation..
So I was wondering if its coded with a maximum accuracy all the time (say 5 decimal points for 1.1M accuracy),then the distance filter must continually calculate our every movementso how is it possible with this to also set a desired accuracy of 3Km?It's confusing as hell and I was just suggesting some clearer way that's easier to understand.
Even the default setting: how can it truly be a desired accuracy of 100M then we say update the coordinates every 50M?? (distance filter). Understand the confusion?
Compressor 'threshold' (when to kick it) = Distance filter;
Compressor 'Ratio' (how much of a sample to take) = Accuracy Filter --
--not a perfect analogy - but one from our musical world that maybe can help get our brains around it.
Hope that helped a bit more..

I took a particular interest in these buttons because of my Newd Ultimate Location iWidget that you helped me with in the early days, Dacal. I wanted it to be able to calculate (with Google API - only API accurate enough) both the city/town AND what 'smaller than county' political boundary I was in (neighborhoods/townships). For me - leaving Distance Filter on 50M (how often XML updates) and Accuracy filter of Every Ten Meters - I'm able to get very pinpoint accurate results for my iWidget. WW best invention ever as far as GPS tracking sensor. For my iWidget - Yahoo, even Weather.app's better feed - wasn't able to get me accurate enough info - so I'm 100% Google JSON call now. And only consult the myLocation.txt file for coordinates. Works great.Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

@Grant, bud, thanks pal, but I only got through half of that post & my mind started drifting away to a better place LOL. A+ for effort but I'm still none the wiser.
I think i will just accept it the way it is, it works & that's all that really matters.

Maybe the switches could be renamed:
XML Update Distance = Distance Filter
Location Accuracy = Accuracy Filter
or- Location Zoom
.. the accuracy filter is hard to describe completely in a couple/three words..
And there should be a header above those two switches saying:

Actually Ian, Grant nailed it. 👍
I also have a small list of changes that I have requested from SD. This is going to require an "overhaul" of WW with new features added and some old features being removed. The atmospheric and neighborhood switches are going to disappear. They where originally added because SD didn't know if we wanted that info, as it is available, but Apple was not using it. There are going to be some additional woeid features added that is going to change the settings pane from a simple on to a dynamic one.
As far as "under the hood" goes, that has to do with how we are accessing the GPS chip if you need a deeper explanation than what Grant provided, then you might just want to PM me.
Hope your traveling is going well!Widget-Weather App Now Available! Also with MyLocation Support!

Anyone know how to theme the settings icon for WidgetWeather?As long as there's hate in your heart, there'll be hate in the world. You can't fight for peace and you cannot capture freedom.

Hey Grant...June's over at LB has put out a challenge for someone to code GPS into LockBuilder...in a roundabout sorta way. You up for it?Respect existence, or expect resistance...
03-15-2014, 01:17 PM #3116
I do follow all these threads you know.
1. I do not want his long posts in my thread. This has already been discussed privately between us. Among other things.
2. If it was a challenge I would have came here or anywhere and done it myself.
3. I really don't think coming to this thread and even by saying "in a round about way" was very advantageous of you.
03-15-2014, 01:30 PM #3117
Grant, this isn't an insult just a question but do u know code well enough to implement GPS into one of Junes lockscreens? His stuff is crazy deep and innovative, would be psyched if u did. Take the challenge bro.
June, excellent work on Lockbuilder man. Very cool idea and seems to be very well executed. A little pricey for me but the amount of work I'm sure u put into it is crazy. Well done.

My price comment was just a small fraction of an overall positive take on your LS. It's very cool that it's got its own Cydia section. Quite the achievement, congrats.

So - yes, Krima, I can code it pretty easily if June let me access to his code.. which he probably is unlikely to do. But no, I wouldn't be interested in helping - until June learns a thing or two about manners and treating people with respect. And would apologize for his rude comment above. I'm just not willing to be the brunt of his rudeness anymore. I tried. But he stayed rude to the end.
Peace out.Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!
