Interface improvements
« on: November 24, 2007, 05:30:23 pm »
The format of Soldat's interfaces didn't change for years. Since we have a new development team, I think it needs some fixing.

1. New Interface Maker. The current one doesn't support resolutions other than 640x480, causing some interfaces not to work properly on higher resolutions.

2. Ability to change which part of interface is on top, and which is below. We have this order atm:
- status text (on top of everything)
- weapon name
- ammo text
- back
- ping dot
- grenades
- jet-bar
- jet
- fire-bar
- fire-bar-r
- reload-bar
- ammo
- vest-bar
- health-bar
- health (below everything)

Ability to change this order would improve the power of modifying the interface (for example, a nice shaded mask overlapping the health-bar, making it look blurry).

3. Separate font for interface text. Some text-based interfaces don't fit for people who changed their fonts, making the interfaces look unprofessional (someone said he cared if his script looks professional... Well, I care if interface looks professional - that's why people are making them).

4. Ability to change color of interface's text. This one doesn't need any more description.

I like this idea, I have not tried interface modding, because I was not sure if I needed to make some sort of file for it to work (the setup.sif files, I dunno wtf they are)

Because words cant describe it.
Last year, I dreamt I was pissing at a restroom, but I missed the urinal and my penis exploded.
