    Love this! Looks like the apple watch face numbers too, I dig the simplicity! Thanks for the alternate options too!

    Finally figured out how to change the wallpaper from a flash drive, it's fun to mess with!

    I had thought of trying to figure out the same font that Honda uses in the instrument cluster, but the Apple Watch numerals are almost identical. Ka-ching.

    Decided to try some circuit board wallpapers. I was looking for Android tablet innards, but most of them have huge batteries in them, and who knows if ours has a battery at all. The blue one is just a random circuit board wallpaper image that I added some text to (the font I used for "HONDA" and "CIVIC" is OCR Std Regular; the Honda "H" was just taken from another wallpaper and took a bunch of fiddling to turn it from black to bluish). The reddish one is as red as I could make it using the software I have.

    Did another couple versions of my last clock wallpapers. One uses Futura and the other uses Gil Sans; hopefully the Gil matches the instrument cluster font a little better than the Apple California font I used before.

    That looks great! I've been looking for a functional clock that would go over my wall paper.

    Has anyone figured out if you can see your audio information with a wallpaper for the Sport? Like I love my background, however I do like to see what is playing or what station I am on. If anyone knows how to change it to where I can see both that would be awesome.

    Some more -- Veritech cockpit view (same idea as the Millennium Falcon cockpit, but different theme), HAL9000, and a couple screen grabs from TRON Legacy.

    I don't know (I have the Sport Touring), but it would be nice. We don't have that ability in the upgraded system's main screen; it'll display some info (not much) in the speedometer, though.

    Inspired by BarracksSi's cool template and clock faces, I decided to try to create one. Like, a retro clock that calls back to the 1970's Civic my grandpa had.

    Something that evokes this speedometer:
    1977%20honda%20civic%20mk1%20auto%20speedometer.jpg

    Ends up it's not so easy to create something like that from scratch, and early attempts pretty well sucked. But it has been a learning experience and kind of fun.

    First step, find that font. Not much luck in the Honda geezer forums, but since Honda was heavily influenced by European designs back in the 70's, paydirt poking around the old British roadster forums. This font is pretty close in bold, not perfect, but pretty close:

    https://profont.net/fonts/eurostile-lt-std-demi-font-download.html

    Next, figure out exactly where everything is on the screen. Since we can't cover or hide the clock pips on the system clock, we'll need to use them, plus add some more that are offset by 15 degrees and thinner.

    So, a more precise template is needed. Flailing around in Gimp didn't help. Python to the rescue.

    Y42YNHS.jpg

    This was generated using Python + Pillow, the new version of PIL. Since PIL lets you do things like draw from (0,0) to (800,480) -- instead of to (799, 479), there are probably some off-by-one-pixel errors, but it's pretty close.

    The center ring is 20 pixels across (10 pixel radius), and each ring is an additional 10 pixels wider radius.

    Code:
    from PIL import Image, ImageDraw
    im = Image.new("RGB",(800,480))
    liner = ImageDraw.Draw(im).line
    circle = ImageDraw.Draw(im).ellipse
    zeros = (0,0)
    lowright = (800,480)
    center = (800/2,480/2)
    white = (255,255,255)
    gray = (128,128,128)
    liner([zeros, lowright], fill=white,width=1)
    liner([(0,480),(800,0)], fill=white,width=1)
    liner([(0,240),(800,240)], fill=white,width=1)
    liner([(400,0),(400,480)], fill=white,width=1)
    circle([(400-10,240-10),(400+10,240+10)], outline=gray)
    for i in range(10,240,10):
      circle([(400-i,240-i),(400+i,240+i)], outline=gray)
    im.save("test1.jpg","JPEG")
    
    More info as the adventure continues...

    EDIT: Forgot to count the very inner circle which is completely covered by the clock hands. Adjusted numbers to reflect this.

    It looks like:
    • The "butt" of the second hand is just shy of 30 pixels long, call it 28, since there appears to be a 1-pixel gap between the second hand and the 2o-pixel-radius circle.
    • The hour hand is just over 70 pixels long.
    • The minute hand is right at 130 pixels long.
    • The pips appear to run from right around 130 pixels on the inside to 150 pixels on the outside.
    • All of these measurements are based on counting circles, and the circles could be off by 1 pixel due to slop in the centerpoint, and another 1 pixel due to slop in the circle drawing routine, so it is possible that the hands are exactly 70 and 130 pixels long.
    • That would make sense since the clock is created by a program, and the programmer likely used nice round numbers in their code.
    A side adventure might be to go dig in the Android (4.0?) source code and see if the analog clock code can be found. It's a reasonable bet that Honda didn't create this clock, but just used or tweaked an existing Android app / widget / system feature.

    To be continued...

    Shibefur, that's out-frickin' standing.

    So, the dial diameter across the outboard edges of opposing hour markers would be 300 pixels?
