Dear YoWindow friends,
we have come up with an idea of launching hot air balloons over YoWindow landscapes.

Download new YoWindow to enjoy the balloons!

The launch of a balloon is a rare event.
It happens once in 20 minutes in average.

Don't want to wait?
Press Ctrl-B to launch a new balloon.
Make sure the wind is strong enough
Balloons are not launched when the wind speed is less than 2 m/s (2.23 mph)

A little surprise: Type "fiesta" on the keyboard, wait 5 - 20 seconds and see what happens.

If you don't want the balloon to fly away - drag it back with your mouse :)

Balloons are not launched under severe weather conditions when
-it's raining or it is snowing
-temperature is less than -15 degrees Celsius
-wind speed more than 15 m/s or less than 2 m/s

As usual, balloons are already available for your website or blog in YoWindow weather widget

Development discussion

As usual, we will be happy to read your comments here.
Yura and Pasha.

This is a great addition!! I have always loved Hot Air Ballons (took a ride once in one), and this new creation hits the mark.
Hats off to the work on this one...a keeper for sure.
Thanks for the creation. :Yahoo!:

I felt this was appropriate for my first post - this is, easily, one of the neatest programs I have ever used. Being a spotter for SKYWARN, I keep track of the weather during the day. YoWindow lets me do it in a way that is fun as well as functional.

The balloons are a GREAT touch, as is "amelie"! I often find myself watching it when I'm doing other work just to try and spot something in the background.

PLEASE keep up the great work! :Bravo:

Dear Jeremy (Doctor), sorry for the delay.
Your post is the music for our ears, thank you :)

Marek, we will increase balloons size a little in the upcoming builds,
but it is too much complicated to make them big and to fly on the foreground.

Thanks, guys!

Is the lighthouse widget, shown on this page, going to become one of the landscapes?
