Daz, what are you planing with these pictures? Any mod? Or edit vanilla directly?
I don't have the skills to be able to do anything like that I'm afraid
I have a bit of time on my hands at the moment as I'm off work due to an injury, so I have had plenty of time to play, and have got very hooked on this game.
I love not just the strategic challenge, of the most complex game of chess you will ever play, but also the way it encourages you to dive into the history of the era to find out more of what went on, and the men involved in it.
I also picked up a copy of Photoshop cs6, to aid me in my work, but have never really had the time to learn how to use it, or the inspiration to do so.
But now I can combine my hobby with learning how to use Photoshop, that's awesome
Coming from other games, and seeing the interface on PS CS6, made me realise how basic and lacking the current interface is in game.
There is a lot of things that should be available on display ( as an option if you prefer, and have a smaller screen) that would drastically reduce the click fest we have now.
Having the On Map Boss load always on display is an example, ammo levels another, on bottom or top bar, fatigue. Things that you look at a lot but currently need to click through a bunch of tabs.
Then there was the question of how to make a game like this more visually inspiring, without altering the map/symbols, counter, icon, game view that most of us love.
That's where this equipment list comes in.
It would be part of a dropdown list available in the top bar, and will be populated with the equipment that is on the unit icon you click on, either in the OB list or the map. If you select multiple units the number box will increment, and the list will get longer to include the extra equipment types hence the scroll bar.
When it's done I will post it in the Future directions features thread, and hopefully someone with some computer programming knowledge will take up the concept, or just pull out the bits they like.
Maybe someone will mod it, or we might get to see this kind of thing in a future release of the game.
Of course they may want to do something totally different, it's their game after all.
It's great to get feedback from you guys as to what you prefer to see, as it adds more weight to any future inclusion into the game
