Am I right in thinking that this latest Mod for Gotham will only work with the confluence skin?

The core weather.metoffice addon should work in any skin. It provides the basic weather parameters that are supported by default by all skins. This is available in the Official XBMC repo for Frodo and Gotham, so no need to add my repo.

But in order to get the advanced features (map, 3 hour forecast, satellite images) you have to install the modded skin for Confluence.

This is because XBMC/Kodi does not support custom weather layouts, and there's no way to "plug" them in.

Confluence is the only skin modded for metoffice advanced features. If you want it for another skin then you'll have to code it yourself (or ask someone to do it!)

However its possible that other skin providers are more sympathetic to having custom weather xml in their repo.
