Did up a new interface for the mod I intend making using the stratagus engine.

Thanks man :) Been mucking around with ideas all afternoon - still gotta do all the other resolutions, but I'm trying out different things with the native 1920x1080 res.

Here's another few shots of the things I've modified and created.

New side bar, sliders, slider-markers, buttons and checkboxes.

Diplomacy panel is resized, decided to use panel 3 instead of panel 5.

Nice :)

I suggest commenting out "menu:setBorderSize(1)" in the "function WarGameMenu(background)" (in /scripts/menus/game.lua), so that the borders of the panels look better. The same can be done to buttons my modifying "function menu:addImageButton(caption, hotkey, x, y, callback)" (in /scripts/guichan.lua), redefining it thus:

Code: Select all

  function menu:addImageButton(caption, hotkey, x, y, callback)
    local b = ImageButton(caption)
    b:setHotKey(hotkey)
    b:setActionCallback(callback)
    self:add(b, x, y)
    b:setBorderSize(0)
    return b
  end

What is the concept behind the mod you're making? An interface mod, or is there more to it?

Basically I want to make a game with astronauts and cosmonauts dukin it out to control the resources on the moon and mars. That's the bare bones of it. It'll take a lot of work though. I might expand the story a bit later on to include other planets and even other star systems, as Dark Matter in this sense kinda refers to inter-steller travel, light/warp speed and space rts style gameplay.
