Ascendancy 1.1 UI Update
« on: June 13, 2016, 11:58:30 PM »
So, as we start to settle on some of the UI rework styles, I thought I would showcase some of the new look and feel.

Menu System

While I'm updating the menu system as a whole, the following screenshots of the New Game menu will hopefully provide some indication of what we are going for.

Main Menu Screen



Game Options Dialog



Victory Options Dialog



Planetary Main View

There has been quite a bit of feedback about the planetary pip clouds in the main view for 1.0.  So, I've gone back to the design board in an attempt to make things clearer (and address the concerns).  Below is a working example of the updated pip cloud.



We hope this new look will provide information for easier consumption:

  • Icons to indicate planetary types along with name
  • Clearly defined "Alert!" indicator signifying systems where friendly units have encountered enemy units
  • Clearer population gauges
  • Simpler indicator rings (dashed for no intelligence, solid for friendly presence)
  • Simpler capital and artifact icons (gold star = capital)

I'm liking the looks of the updates!!  Especially the pips, they do look like they'll be a LOT easier to read.
People should not be afraid of their government...governments should be afraid of their people.

I must agree too
"He who fights with monsters should be careful lest he thereby become a monster.
And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee." - Friedrich Nietzsche
