UI Revolution Project

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.

@ctrl-k hmmm, this with selecting a bunch of engies then attack moving into different places or in 1v1, select all bombers and being able to quickly click in 1-2 places would be really useful, looks super promising!

@Raishini specific target priorities is a self sufficient ui mod which may be a nice addition to advanced target priorities.
