Are you open to suggestions about the GUI and is this a good place?

I'm open about GUI engine improvements, as long as they don't break too much existing code.
I don't think I want to spend much time on the actual GUI code, aside from fixing planned issues: 5852 5282

My main concern about the GUI is found in the objectives screen. Trying to compare the differences between Easy-Medium-Hard difficulties when the list of objectives is long is a daunting task because of the large fonts and the next/prev page system.

To keep thing simple, I think the problem could be solved if we somehow could reduce the size of the font in the objective list, either via config file or in-game via A+ and A- buttons. A more elaborated approach would involve scrollbars.

Please let me know if didn't explain myself well or if you require clarifications to understand what I am talking about.

Many thanks.

That's already possible. Chech your video/advanced settings. There is an option to adjust the hud size.

Now, that is useful. Funny how long it takes sometimes until someone comes up with such a small yet huge tweak.

Now we just need to remove the console clutter from core asset bugs and pointless mass-warnings and the console will be perfect.

There are more changes in dev16599-10071, please read the original post.

Basically:

  • vector component indexing is fixed
  • expression evaluation order fixed
  • don't disable auto-updates of register because of a reference to it
  • Set command can now have expressions on right side

I wonder if we have information about GUI scripts anywhere that should be updated?

I've noticed a lot of new GUI warnings when loading various FMs - haven't looked too closely at that, though.

Yes, all those missions have incorrect GUIs, including Saint Lucia and New Job.

The original GUI engine did not report any kind of error, just tried to continue doing something. And it had some bugs.
The latest GUI engine reports almost all issues as warnings, has most bugs fixed, and still tries to continue despite errors.

      Tried to make a tdm advertisement commentpost at one of civvie11 youtube videos about T2. Post got marked as spam. His problem (to not discover TDM for himself),..not my problem.
      But some help of some fellow TDM yt-videocomment posters would be nice. To ask him and others, to play TDM. To get more players/creators.

      Currently Profile Information has 3 fields, these are shown in forum posts under your avatar:
      1. Gender
      2. Location
      3. Interests
      I think that it could be useful to have an extra field called "Operating system" (under location). It can be useful for tech support and to see what people use.
      Alternatively it could be a more general term, like PC system, so that you can for example state that you use an AMD gpu.

      Just found out piped.kavin.rocks has a build-in audio-only for video's (great for music video's). Never thought something like this (including browser extensions) excisted. This would have saved me a lot of money on vacation, where I was camping without wifi.
