    The dull version is great!

    Here are some of my thought's, don't think of them as of something which should be done, but rather of something which might even be better for your taste:
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    The "Remove" -> if that flag is just on the inner side of the ui, it seems like a nice separator. On both sides it looks good, but maybe try looking at the picture with just 1 flag?

    The ornament -> can you put something like that bar on the right of the minimap "behind" that thing? that solid brown colour doesn't look so good.

    Thanks my friend, feel free to make the adjustments; i would really appreciate if you could show me the results.
    I really don't mind if you touch the *.tga files, it is free/community stuff and i grant you on that

    Sometimes it is easier than trying to explain to someone else (even though your anotations are quite clear, i still miss the brown thing on the right of the mini-map ).

    BTW, nice analyze

    Thanks, i would rep you for this constructive criticism but i cannot due to some punition i am enduring. But once it is finished i'll do it

    EDIT: here are the .psd files to ease your task (if you accept )
    photoshop_psd.rar

    EDIT2: i am currently working on the eastern_european interface and i am well advanced.


    Here is a preview of the lower bar:

    But with my changes it would look like this:

    You could also put that wood behind the non-existant flag now, or just some other fitting element. How u feel about this?

    cedric37,

    Wow, these interfaces are superb, they are massive improvement on the existing ones, I like them lots. +Rep

    Gracul,

    You have me confused now, you say your not a graphics man, but those smoother coastlines you have done are graphics are they not. You made me laugh with the red writing, it is like you were marking an assignment, r u a teacher???

    Cedric, thanks for the changes! I feel it's perfect now, do not change the bright version anymore

    I will try it out as soon as I get to playing SS again.

    Eastern Europian UI looks good so far, keep it up

    Its great!

    @NJ
    those smooth coastlines are not really a graphic thing... the engine generates the graphics.
    And no, im not a teacher.

    excellent! i admire how you release more than one file to cater for different peoples' opinions perhaps on the eastern european- use a wooden texture somewhere? after all- the rus were famous for their wooden fortifications

    well done keep up the good work

    Thanks

    Hmmm unfortunately my modifications will override y2day faction shields, we should maybe merge our two submods in one

    Looking good cedric. But my first impression of the eastern european interface is that it looks more middle-eastern than eastern european. My personal opinion is that it should be darker (to reflect the dark expanses of forests of the east) and also contain more wood textures (to reflect the much greater use of wood as a building material in the east)

    Thanks CC.
    In fact all the stuff you see are pure russian ornamental things, provided to me by a russian friend. I am not sure that russian/other eastern peoples see themselves as we see them, but anyway i see your points. I guess the upper panels are quite ok ? You were speaking of the lower bar which contains too many white in it i presume ? I can maybe put a whole wood stuff (there is already dark wood in it BTW).
