Interface Mod (What does that button do?) - UPDATED
« on: March 07, 2012, 09:19:30 PM »
As a new player I've found the toolbar buttons at the bottom (used to quickly find ships and whatnot) especially confusing.  This mod is my attempt to bring a little bit more clarity to the icons, and consistency between what icons are used to represent ships in the game and on the toolbar.

*UPDATE*
I've changed the font to something I find "softer" and more readable, toned down the brightness, and touched things up.  This is probably the final.  Images and link below are for the new update.

Here's an example of one of the buttons:


Here's a look at it in-game:

Here's a link to the mod:

Overwrite the files in:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\ai war fleet command\RuntimeData\Images\

*Make sure to backup first*

Looks sweet - wouldn't be surprised if they are willing to put it in the core game files.  :)
Time to roll out another ball of death.

Thanks!  I think I'll have to refine it a bit more before it's ready for any consideration like that.  It is helpful for a newb though =P
