Need UI Mod? Let me know

A mod idea i had: 'back-off after shooting command', basically attack-move with a twist for slow firing units like mmls/snipers/ships/arty.
It will 'attack move' to specific location and after after using a shot will move units in opposite direction for half time of firing cycle and will use attack-move to same place again, repeat until arriving to attack spot. This can be considered a bit 'cheaty' cause squishy slow firing units won't stand in same place waiting for arty shot each time they encounter enemies.

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

Thank You! I Love it, The Whole reason the Rainbow Tourny exists...
is I hate seeing mixed colors like you mentioned.
My OCD with this has me even sorting colors when I play AI solo.

These are the colors for the Rainbow Tourny going on now,,
finishes on Feb 6,,
watch streams on faflive twitch and others to see your idea in action.

"a bit 'cheaty'"
no, its cheaty and would result in a ban if used in competetive games

Techmind I won’t be making the mod, was gonna PM you privately telling you that. And given conversations I won’t be making the counting mod either

I would like a mod that adds a sound effect when one of two things happen:
(1) someone on my team sends a team-chat message; or
(2) anyone in the game sends a chat message to me only

From watching replays I see that during the game I won't always notice when someone sends me a chat message. It would promote better teamwork if a sound cue helped me to notice the chat message.

It would be best if the sound effect was subtle but also completely unique, so a player would always know that it represents a chat message.

@arma473 vault->search "chatbeep"

can we get an UI that disables chat and marks at the same time?

Probably y can just destroy chat window's handler + replace default chat-sound with null-sound, but this would be game mod like 'kyro's lobby' which would not be installable from vault.

@Resistance @techmind_

it would be easy to remove chat from showing up (all chat, or according to specific rules, like muting a list of players). The ChatBeep mod in the vault almost shows you how to do it.

ChatBeep always calls the underlying function and then adds a beep sound. You could modify it to put logic in to decide whether to call the underlying function. Logic like: if the name of the sender of the chat message equals "arma473", don't call it, otherwise, call it. If you don't call that underlying function, the chat message never shows up on your screen.

it's probably equally easy to remove "pings" from showing up, or at least to take their sound away. again, it could be done according to specific rules, or it could just be muting everyone's pings

Also an idea for mod 'select units with <25% hp(to fallback and ctrl-k), <50% hp'(to fallback beside healthy units), select veteran units with <25% hp (so they can heal a bit)', probably a best way for UI is to filter current selection like 'no fuel' does.

@Fearghal @ZLO @techmind_ I uploaded this mod to the vault. It is called "ChatBeepLite"

I uploaded it with @Uveso 's permission

I'm calling it a "lite" version of Uveso's ChatBeep mod, rather than overwriting the existing ChatBeep mod, because it does some things differently:

-A different noise (it's not really a beep, it's a chirping noise)
-It doesn't chirp for global messages because those usually aren't worth reading
-It won't chirp more than about once per second even if there are lots of messages
-It has different configuration options

I recommend this mod to EVERYBODY who has ever watched a replay of your own team game and noticed that you missed important chat messages during the game . . . if anyone tells you that they didn't notice a chat message, you can recommend this mod to them

Should set it up on special words like: smd, exp, nuke, tml, tmd, t3 bomber, bomber, acu

Is there some version of advanced strategic icons that only has only important changes? like SMD/SML/ACU maybe TML and no other weird stuff?

Edit: Tho not sure how much that helps. i have seen Paralon using penis icon for Nuke and it didn't help him to notice it https://youtu.be/PCE3H78CJQ4?t=5933

I would like such UI mod as well, I remember my game vs Petric in a tourney on Seton's where I couldn't see his Nuke because the t1 pgens around it hidden it.

@Tagada @Zlo

PM me and I’ll discuss the details its 100% possible and quite easy to do so. Its just rather convoluted

You can do it by yourself. Install advanced strategic icons and delete unused icons
Why it is better to do it by yourself?

  • You can save the icons that needs only you
  • You can always restore another icons

Or you can do it another far easier way. And come a couple months even easier
