New SOW Waterloo Toolbar
« on: January 22, 2017, 09:32:33 PM »
A new toolbar is being created.


It is in the initial stages and being tested by us before it is released.

Initial Features
   It will replace the Vanilla.
   It will be activated as a mod.
   It will work with vanilla scenarios
   Button highlight. So you know they have been pressed
   Pressing on some buttons opens a sub menu.

Buttons; you can right click on some button to see more options

If you look at the Cavalry toolbar below. You will notice the "Fog of war" is where the unit information usually is. This is a feature in development for this toolbar.

Infantry


Artillery


Cavalry


Commander


Please feel free to suggest additions/removals for the toolbar.

Suggestion:

Unlimber gun button Maybe make it unlimber/limber

Add Zoom button with scope: Like on Grog V

Like it so far, good work!

I would like to see the command map button changed to simply CM instead of the map texture.

Agreed. I also miss the arrows for navigating the OOB.

Thanks for your work on this. I really like what I'm seeing and it was very easy to use in the game I played last night!

Bionda,
Thank you very much for your work on this.  Im sure its not easy as that toolbar can be a pain from my experience but maybe you have figured out a trick to it :)

Just thank you for your hard work to help improve the game for everyone.

Much appreciated!

Testing V1a.

Things are moving in the correct direction.

Some additions:
-Removed flags from artillery guns; anyway, you can still select them clicking on the caisson when they are unlimbered or on the horse when they are limbered (the flags are still there, just invisible and near the ground ;))

-Ammo bar now shows the number of ammo per man instead of the total of the battalion (it's always a bar, not really a number, but now works much better than in the other version)

-added a tips in the terrain box. And also the terrain box is affected by the FOW


We will add the default scenarios to the toolbar.

Update: Mod Toolbar DOW v2

Change list 15/02/17

Added:

- Added default scenarios (played through "user scenarios")

- Added red text "Routed" on the unit status panel when a unit routing

- Added blue text "Good Skirmishers" and "Sniper" on the unit identification panel wich appears when a unit as a good skill in Open Order and Marksmanship so you can identify the best battalion to deploy in skirmish formation (or detach skirmishers company)

- The text "Fatigue" and "Morale" become red when the unit fall under 30% of that value. If a unit is fatigued, she can't charge, if Morale is low your unit is very unstable and close to routing.

- Added three notches on the Men bar at 75%, 50%, and 25% of total strenght. The 50% notch is red so you know that your battalion/squadron/gun is very close to routing

- Added the following mods:
      - Terrain Sprite3                                                   Jace11
      - Objective icons mod                                            Jace11
      - Explosion effects mod                                          Jace11
      - Replay icons mod (3d blocks in the replay view)     Jace11
      - Smoke&Flare mod                                               Biondo
 
Changed    
- changed the Map Icons. Also now you can't see who is occupying an objective in the 2d map view.

- changed Tips for the Retreat Button (only for the officers, I need to fix it also for troops)

- changed the way you open the Advance Forward menu: now you open it with a left-click. Also changed the button's color, now red

- changed the way you open Skirmishers menu: now you open it with a left-click. You'll find a new button in that sub-menu to deploy all your battalion in       Skirmisher order

- Added some missing tips

- Changed the Map, OOB and Menu skin to match with the CM style

- Changed Map's skin in the Send courier menu and in the Message sent/received

- Some little tweak in the Telescope view (a bit more wide view)

- Now you can close the Map and the Command Map right-clicking on the relative button.
