user interface upgrade

Post by MasterKeeperFK » 25 Jan 2014, 20:51

hello,
i played the game from beginning at now.

i want to reconfigure the user interface.

the most of all pc users activate a 1920x1200 tft's resulotion.
many place to use more then one screen.

problem:
i must change many many times this screens "factorys output, build units, research, commanders".
this cost many time and is confusing for new players.

my idea is now, to configure this screens all together on the left or right side.
so we have a better overview over all activity in the game.

UI code is something that still hasn't been touched much since the original commercial release.
Developers fixed netcode, improved terrain, added shaders and stuff, but we're still stuck with the old 640x480-targeted UI.

Yes obviously necessary, just needs manpower to fix.

why is that anyhow? I'm actually learning c++ ATM now and one of my future goals is to try and contribute back to the project code-wise. it'll be a while yet but I was wondering for curiosities sake.
