Need UI Mod? Let me know

8

So in past few months, I have made when requested by friends made UI mods for them. You can see result of that on the vault (Idle Engi Hotkeys and HotKeys Keys. Also some additional target priorities for some people. Through sacrifice hotkey I made for myself).

And with HotKeys Keys. I decided when not working on SCTA I’ll be working on UI mods as requested. A few being on theory level right now. Through be note:

  1. Will not make Cheat Mods, goes without saying but don’t request

  2. I will do this in my free time. And do note I expect if you request something, as Farms can vouch (and Se7ven) expect semi-regular PM’s as I confirm everything works in intended. While I do extensive testing before I send it out sometimes users has other things intended I didn’t think about

  3. Any Mod I make that isn’t meant to be an extenxsion or implied functionality like additional targeting priorities. I will be uploading to the vault.

My experience Code/UI side is mostly learn from UI side working on SCTA/Adding Basic Hotkeys.

If you want help. Please shoot me a PM on discord Dragun101. I’ll try and get requests finished within 48 hours but no promises.

That's really kind of you!

I'd love a UI mod that automatically enables the economy overlay every game. Bonus points for toggling off and back on again after a campaign cutscene (those tend to break it for some reason).

@Deribus

dunno if possible but kyro's lobby would be a great choice to be upgraded or at least compatible with downlords

That doesn't make any sense, kyros lobby is about the lobby so the game code. Which is completely independent from the client.

ah,i heard from people that their client breaks when they install it,guess it's on their end then

I have a mod idea, which can be usefull for everyone. Something like "scouting overlay" - just draw transparent decal with specific texture after 30-60-120-240 seconds of not scouting an area. You can just break map in 50x50 pixel chunks and if scouting plane (t1/t3) was around that square in last 1 secod (10 ticks) (something like if (centerX - 1.5 scout rarar/vision range < planeX < centerX + 1.5 scout rarar/vision range) && (same for Z) square[] = scoutedTimesamp()). And render new decal each 10-30 seconds.

This will make remembering to scout specific spots periodically way more useful.
Mod will not be 'cheaty' cause its better UI 😃

While possibly not impossible its not a mod. I want to do. It’ll be more than a tad hard to code. And given my level or ability. If I did code it. Rip SIM Speed.

Also I feel having to say its not a cheat mod is not the most confidence inducing honesty. I’ll atleast take a look. But I got several projects line up right now. In addition to scta things. After I do Deribus, Archi and some other requests.

I can look into this

Nah, check can be done once in 5-10 seconds, it can be made reasonably fast. Y can check only scout planes, and usually there is not a ton of them in game.

I'd love a mod that makes players on a team all have similar colours if possible please. So Team one would be light blue, dark blue, light green, dark green, turquoise and team 2 would be red, dark red, pink, orange, yellow for instance.

I get so confused in team games and the built-in option turns the entire team the exact same colour which creates its own problems.

In case it's relevant I use this icon mod already so please only spend time on it if they would work together. https://wiki.faforever.com/index.php?title=Advanced_Strategic_Icons

That one sounds pretty cheaty. I'd run that by @biass before making it.

Its only avaliable information to the player. Basically like Supreme Economy it counts the enemy mexes for example you see or scouted and determines income.

Yeah I understand that part, but I still think it's too cheaty. However it's not my call to make which is why I said to talk to Biass

@Resistance lobby.txt

This isn't perfect, but I updated kyro's for UI scaling, and few other things that didn't work. It still has issues though which I cannot fix, such as colors not always assigning correctly. Works fine for me otherwise. You will have to rename it from txt to lua since it wouldn't let me upload it otherwise.

Hey @Dragun101, is it possible to add a mod or edit this mod to create hotkeys that cycle through these icons that appear when you have a unit selected: a185727d-41b5-4b48-9eba-a436d8626866-image.png

And preferably these icons if it's an ACU/SACU: 52fdd21a-0212-4e00-904d-663c06207a97-image.png

This will mostly just allow quicker upgrades, so perhaps just making bindable hotkeys for various upgrades would also be good?

Possible yes.
Doable? Easier said than done. Also Prize you on Discord?
