eddyvegas -> The Eddy Vegas UI Mod - V3.1 small update (6/20/2020 6:48:01 AM)

So I redid parts of the interface to a) dress it up a bit because that grey is so drab, and b) to enhance readability and user feedback.

Grab it here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/rhiyipjdvsl4idt/eddy_vegas_UI_mod_V3.11.zip/file

Just copy the graphics folder to your install directory.

I have included an uninstall folder in case you want to return to the original.

See what it looks like below. You can scroll down for more screens.

You guys, I'm not sure what else I can do. I'm pretty happy with everything. I never look at the Items screen so that was the last thing to get some love. A lot of tiny changes were made too. I always asked, 'does that button make me want to click on it?'. That's where playtesting comes in. You might think you're a genius, but 4 hours later you find out you're not.

So yes there are red and green buttons. Those are critical buttons and I played a long time before giving up and doing it. Again, do they want to be clicked on? You have backups in the uninstall folder.

EDIT - 3.1 has a divider line for the items to the left. The MODE display is now red to draw attention to what mode you're in. And a couple tabs were recolored for people playing at 1280x800, I missed them before.

I hope you enjoy this mod. -Eddy

eddyvegas -> RE: The Eddy Vegas Interface Mod (6/20/2020 6:59:04 AM)

Resource boxes are gone. Plenty of room between the elements to see everything clearly.

There is also a bit of non UI stuff I changed to bring it in line with the bronze theme.

OK I'm going back to playing the game. I had fun doing this. I hope you enjoy it. -Eddy

Thanks eddy this is really good.




Tchey -> RE: The Eddy Vegas Interface Mod (6/20/2020 8:57:02 AM)

I donít really care about the colors themselves, but your GUI has way better contrast, improving text read, so : yes !

Yes - I like the colors for sure, but Tchey is right, the contrast might be the real value-add here. Thanks eddyvegas!!
(And, nice idea including the 'uninstall' folder.)

Info no longer useful, deleted.




lian -> RE: The Eddy Vegas Interface Mod (6/21/2020 6:30:07 PM)

Thanks.




eddieballgame -> RE: The Eddy Vegas Interface Mod (6/21/2020 9:30:05 PM)

Great idea turned into an excellent mod, thank you 'eddyvegas'.




eddyvegas -> RE: The Eddy Vegas Interface Mod (6/21/2020 10:10:27 PM)

Thanks folks. Here is the new assets page. Never a question which asset is selected. And you can read the production numbers easily.

And I *did* wind up turning that end turn button red eventually. It was a bit too much. Hope you enjoy!

Good job dude [sm=happy0065.gif]




Krupinski -> RE: Eddy Vegas UI Mod - FINAL (6/23/2020 2:38:48 PM)

Thank you! I`ll use this.




eddyvegas -> RE: Eddy Vegas UI Mod - FINAL (6/24/2020 7:15:04 AM)

New side tabs to bring them more in line with the shiny metal art on the left and right. Black dot for contrast, readability, and to set them apart from other buttons as being important.

I've not put any of this in the official release yet. I know myself too well now, I will find something else to fix. For example, I'll bet I can find that right click menu art somewhere. :)

Tchey -> RE: Eddy Vegas UI Mod - FINAL (6/24/2020 8:28:43 AM)

koplinsol -> RE: Eddy Vegas UI Mod - FINAL (6/24/2020 10:02:10 AM)

This is so excellent. Thanks for this.




eddyvegas -> RE: Eddy Vegas UI Mod - FINAL (6/24/2020 10:08:20 AM)

Finally looking at this screen I never look at.

ramnblam -> RE: Eddy Vegas UI Mod - FINAL (6/24/2020 11:49:41 AM)

Thats the "WTF WHERE IS THE X????" screen. haha




Daza99 -> RE: Eddy Vegas UI Mod - FINAL (6/25/2020 7:41:05 AM)

Thanks Eddy great job! I like it.




eddyvegas -> RE: Eddy Vegas UI Mod - FINAL (6/25/2020 11:13:21 AM)

You guys are welcome. I'm having a blast doing this.

Sometimes less is more. There's no need to see those closed boxes, they clutter things up needlessly, and detract from focusing on info that matters.

I'll be releasing a new version with the small improvements shortly.

eddyvegas -> RE: Eddy Vegas UI Mod - FINAL (6/25/2020 11:16:51 AM)

Equally, there's no need to make the header look like something you can click on. This basically eliminates 3 'buttons'.

W8taminute -> RE: Eddy Vegas UI Mod - FINAL (6/25/2020 1:03:57 PM)

I installed your mod last night and I love this new interface! Can't wait for your update with the improvements you mention above.




Tchey -> RE: Eddy Vegas UI Mod - FINAL (6/25/2020 1:30:09 PM)

Yep, really it improves the readability of everything.

Suggestion : rename your topic with a version number of your GUI (like a date YYMMDD could be enough), as "FINAL" seem obviously not so final !




eddyvegas -> RE: Eddy Vegas UI Mod - FINAL (6/25/2020 2:09:31 PM)

By jove, I think I've got it.

Update on the way.

eddyvegas -> RE: Eddy Vegas UI Mod - FINAL (6/25/2020 2:58:21 PM)

Version 3 is up: http://www.mediafire.com/file/g18ufag7r3uqyx9/eddy_vegas_UI_mod_V3.zip/file




eddyvegas -> RE: Eddy Vegas UI Mod - FINAL (6/27/2020 4:57:40 AM)

Trying to draw attention to the Orders mode bottom right - too much?
