Main UI Change

Recommended Posts

About a month ago I found out you could directly modify the UI. This excited me because the current UI is ass and needs serious changing. My first suggestion is to move the chat bar underneath the chat box, so there is more screen space for people who run non 4:3 monitors. I also made a change where the default chat to tab information ratio is 4 to 1.

I like mine being across screen so I can proofread and edit where I typed wrong across the big words. I'm all bark but no bite through RP. Please have this as an option.

Have it be an option please. Having the text bar underneath the player window lets me proof read my typing as I type while still having the events unfolding in my periphery.

i dont see this as a big need, I use the bottom bar all the time, I dont think anyones dying for more screen space and if they are as I said they can autohide their task bar and get more then this change would give them.

In a future update I will be expanding the maximum viewrange up from 8x8 to 9x9. With the taskbar being removed and the chatlog being shrunk a little, you'll be able to see 8.5x8.5.

Tied to engine limitations, yes. There is no opt-in or opt-out.


There could be but it would be a pain-staking effort to get it to work, if not completely impossible as I don't believe there's precedent to that idea. The textport was never meant to be modularly changed. Not even on /tg/ do they have options to change the style of the textport.

I guess I can live with it. I'm chalking up a lot of my hesitation to this simply requring something DIFFERENT. I can still +1 this tentatively since it will hardly RUIN my gaming experience even if the worst comes to pass

you can just do this client side, or even revert back to the old one client side if this gets added. byond supports 100% clientside skins.

No, I'm sorry. I often use up a lot of my chat bar and on the occasions where it starts to scroll, it is the most annoying thing in the universe because Byond is poopoo at letting me adjust what I've typed accurately.


That's a -1 for me.


+1 if I can keep it the way it is and have this as an option for others who want it this way.


So, the same as everyone else!
