Looks nice.  Do the Equipment, organic elements and attached elements scroll their lists within those cards?

Thanks Cat! Yep, that is the current plan to have it scroll.  :) I'm sure there will more plenty more fiddling with the layout before it is all said and done, but this is the starting point.

Very nice!  Of course the only problem is that seeing all that info I now have many many questions for my ASL conversion rule set, which is coming along nicely!

Thanks Asid!  ;D

Thanks CK! Don't worry too much, as you know conversion to different systems is something that I have had in mind the whole time. Everything on that menu are things that we have addressed in some fashion in our original conversion attempt. I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Let this be notice to all people interested in the tactical side, this next turn will have plenty of combat to be resolved!! I anticipate being ready to start the tactical resolution process around mid-week next week.

Sounds good.  Can you make sure that the overall screen never has scroll bars?  Scroll bars with in scroll bars never ends well.

Ha, I never gave that much thought, but you are right that it is a pain.  :) So the basic plan is to either allow scrolling for each status window, OR the main window increases in size to incorporate all the info. This means there would be a single scrolling bar for the main window only if/when needed. Hopefully that addresses your concern!

Yes, scrolling the whole window is another choice that can work.  Either one.

Sorry for getting into the weeds on you there - kinda early for that really.  I literally had just spent time on a forum where scroll bars within scroll bars happen frequently and annoy the crap out of me. Sorry for bringing that baggage along with me :-)

Ha, ha, not a problem!  ;) Like I said I happen to agree, I just hadn't specifically thought about it.

Hopefully I will have some more art to share here before long, but we shall see. Also, for anyone wanting to play out tactical battles, I hope to have the latest movements from our scenario posted within the 48 hours. I can tell you there will be several engagements that will develop, so stay tuned if you want to take part in that.
