    Icon2 [E2DI] Enhanced 2D Interfaces - completely new ui's as of 22/11/2010 + RELEASED Patch for BftB2.0 on 28/11/2010

    Introduction:
    Dear brothers of the Steel that never stains,

    Time has come for change...
    Tired of the old "vanilla" 2D interfaces for SS6.1, SS6.2, SS/RR/RC or whatever submod you use ?

    Well maybe you would be interested by this.

    All the 2D interfaces you see in the strategic map and the battle map, one per culture (northern_european, southern_european, middle_eastern, etc) are redone.

    Brother CÚdric37,
    Kardinal of the Holy Khurch of Kong.
    Important Note: This is compatible with SS6.3, SS6.1 and will be with SS6.2, SS/RR/RC, Battle for the Baltic.
    This submod is compatible with Eye Candy v2.0 from y2day (his excellent faction emblems are included in this submod, with his permission, thanks again to him). So before downloading this, you should definitely download Eye Candy v2.0 from y2day, unless you want some messy 2D interface And if you like the faction emblems, rep him.

    It's basically the same thing, data/ui/southern_european/interface

    You just have to create manually the folders that come after the ui.
    Also, you need that "file first true" thingy in the preferences.


    Ze Team:

    - cedric37
    - KDK

    ********************COMPLETLY NEW UIs****************************************

    Eastern strat UI

    Greek strat UI

    Eastern battle UI

    Northern battle UI (by KDK)

    Southern battle UI (by KDK)

    + Hotfix (updated battle and strat map UI for Eastern European): EE_fix.7z

    Note: i will make an hotfix for SS6.2 & RR/RC (with timurid flag) and for Battle for the baltic (with sweden flag).


    Patch for Battle for the Baltic 2.0 (for SS6.1).

    It changes the splash & menues, and all the ui's (with the ones of E2DI).
    It also fixes missing unit info card for Sweden knight templars and updates the unit card for Swedish scandinavian men at arms.

    It can be downloaded here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/e62p31
    It must be extracted under your Battle for the Baltic mod folder (normally Stainless_Steel_6).

    Hmmm in fact that is the idea of those new interface, to be reconciliated with colours

    I was really tired of the old dull interfaces, and for me middle-age not necessarily mean gray and sad. I already tuned down the brightness of colours to give a dirty look. I don't really think they are flashy or too coloured, the balance is quite ok IMO, imagine you are on a jousting tournament, imagine all the banners and shields weared by the soldiers, they were very coloured.

    Colours, my friend, colours are the key! But i am not trying to convince you, just i give you my own view.

    like the colourfulness.

    has a medieval feel to it - lots of primary colours.
    I don't think anyone ever accused medieval people of good taste when it came to colours.
    bright and gaudy seems to be the way they liked it.

    english heritage have done some amazing reconstruction of medieval decor at dover castle:

    Great work, I agree it is a little too colorful for my taste. I have started creating new UI's for SS several times but have never released. Maybe I will release an alternative. Good job Cedric!

    @Rozanov: much thanks for this excellent link, mate! And happy that some people share my taste for colours

    @y2day: thanks, i am impatient to see your alternative ui's. It is always good to let people some choice, the more choice the better. My ui's will aim at being more colourfull but i understand that other people prefer less coloured ui's, so that will be perfect if you propose such ui's.
    And of course, most people will stick with the "old" ui's anyway

    I get an idea though; i am just curious: what would you change in my current ui (it is not finished yet but you can tell from what have been done) to make it more to your taste ?
