While my specialty is texturing things like firearms and other items for video games, I decided to apply some of my limited Photoshop experience to making a "dream STAR"- that is, a STAR unit that incorporates factors from different STAR units that I find to be visually pleasing. Heck, you'll probably find a little bit from all of the STAR's here when i'm finished.
Having said that, this is an attempt at a night time LF w/ appropriate background. The rain icon is a fusion of the XL and current IntelliStar icons, and the LDL is a recreation of the current one as seen on Satellite and current IS units. As you can see, it is nowhere near complete. You'll see it evolve and take on a much more "complete" feel as time goes on.
As the image is large, I had to link it so it would not be a problem on smaller screens (I run 1280x1024)http://georgheissmann.googlepages.com/IS-ish.jpg
Current plans on this image are to flesh it out and make tewaks as needed. Might add a visible moon that shows the current phase, but I don't know.
Update 1: Added "Current Conditions" header with 4000-esque gradient, tweaked text/image "windows".http://georgheissmann.googlepages.com/IS-ish2.jpg
Update 3: Edited time, completed LDL, added location, added the little circle thing to the temperature. It begins to resemble an actual CC frame.http://georgheissmann.googlepages.com/IS-ish3.jpg
