Hey Cliffski, I know that the UI might be a little low on the priority list, but I think it might be a wise idea to polish a few of these. It’s just a bunch of little, niggling things that could make some of the UIs more satisfying. You might be able to knock these off in an hour or so.
I noticed this with the advent of 1.30: whenever the edit box is selected the blinking cursor causes the edge of the font to “pulse”. It is subtle, but if you put a W (lower or upper cased) the diagonal lines make it rather obvious.
Battle Screen “Scroll Box”
When scrolling the list of battles, the icon of the battle (and related datum) constantly flickers as though the scrolling is causing a selection change. Also, could double-clicking an item load an engagement, please?
Sometimes I just want to rework a ship design, and sometimes I want to keep the hull and rip it all out. Can I have the option of clearing the entire design, rather than having to pull off each module (or reselect my hull), please?
Some newly modded ships exceed the vertical capacity of my screen; the ship I speak of is the Jem Hadar Battlecruiser. Its 24 weapon modules make it fearsome (-ly expensive), but incapable of modified firing instructions … after all, I can’t change the range when I can’t click “Ok” to keep the change. Can we have either: a) a list of weapons with their ranges, with duplicates stacked into one space (“Cruiser Pulse Laser (x4)”), or b) a scroll-bar on the list?
Carriers are useful, sometime, but only if they are on orders that are “stay behind”. Short of being engineless, this is a difficult task. Could we have a “stay back” instruction? I know this would be loved by missile lovers.
So far I am impressed cliffski. GSB has been very stable, it plays to my obsessive urges to make flawless ships, and so far looks quite modification friendly.
