hmm...Have to go bottom left or right then.
Dave what do you think of the new UI idea of Daz? Like the screenie further up?
Well I'm still trying to work out how this concept is to work in practice. Do these views appear when you select a unit on the map?
Thanks for your interest Dave
The way I imagine my top bar concept working is its independent of the original interface.
I.e you will be able to play the game exactly as before by using what's on the left hand side, if you wanted.
The equipment list that everyone seems quite keen on, would indeed be populated with the equipment of the unit currently selected. If you where to click and drag then all the equipment in the selection would be shown in the E&S list with the numbers incremented, and extra equipment appended to the bottom of the list, with the scroll bar coming into play as needed.
This might cause a bit of a strain on less powerful systems. I know nothing of computer programming so that's something you will need to sort out I guess.
The list will be independent of anything in the original interface, so you could have the E&S top bar open, but say the OB in the original, thus giving you far more flexibility in what you see on screen.
The same goes for the other tabs on the bar. They can be opened and closed as you wish independently of what's in the other tabs, but will only show what's in the currently selected units just as the current interface does.
Except for the Depot, and the ON Map Boss tab.
These will be a direct link to the on map boss, and the Depot currently supplying the selected unit, so you don't even need to search for where they are on map.
The important info will be permanently displayed on the top bar. You can see what I have chosen as important info to me in my screenshot, but its open for debate.
