UI Revolution Project

Oh wow, this is a quite the promising project. I was looking around to see if I could get EControl separately (courtesy of UI Party), and found this. I have been trying to learn Lua writing so I can use 'A Hotkey Keys', but your Hotbuild Overhaul appears to accomplish the same thing (and with a GUI no less!). The only other mods I use which are relevant to your listed features (so might be worth looking at them); 'Advanced Target Priorities 1.1', and 'Better Reclaim View' (this one specifically b/c it works with UI Scaling). I would very much like to sign up for testing/feedback.

Glad to see your attention, I would like to look at them too, but rn I'm preparing something interesting 😉

Sweet! Keep me posted. The mex viewer of EControl is just so good, I really don't know think I can play without it (recent patch messed up UI Party, which sadly does not have a reset button).

What is going on with the Specific Target Priorities? I have been tinkering with the mod and am interested in knowing what is going on there.

You must deceive the enemy, sometimes your allies, but you must always deceive yourself!

@kalethequick it produces priority based on unit hovered with cursor and applies to selected ones

I understand your vision, even if some people might interpret your excitement and comments about old mods as a little abrasive. I'll be watching to see where the project goes. As a developer, I understand your desire for cleaner code and more flexible interfaces for the user.

After trying all the idle engineer mods, I do like yours. A couple issues though (which might be related to using BrewLan icons):

  • I can't tell if my ACU is idle
  • I can't tell if factories are idle
  • I do like that the Engineer idle indicator isn't so big and blocky like other mods, but I would really like to see the option to adjust the color, size, and shape

@woofiewilly thanks for review! I'm glad that someone is still interested in this stuff. About IEL:

  • Yeah, acu doesnt have any icons rn
  • Idle factories are highlighted with green triangle
  • Those are textures, you can't change shape and color in the game, however you can try to use your own replacing in mod textures, you can use pngs, but i recommend using dds which are faster to load by the game.
