The Eddy Vegas UI Mod - V3.1 small update

Post by eddyvegas »

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/rhiyipjdv ... 1.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

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

I don’t 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.)

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!

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. :)
