Mockup of new life bars

Here's a mockup of what the new life bars will look like in 0.9.12
A lot of you have been asking for flags and an easier way to identify which teams belong to which players, this accomplishes both!

Thoughts?


Nice!!! [<0>]

I like it! Though, at first it might be possible to mix up between player name and command name (which is which, I mean) - both are usually quite sophisticated.
But, I don't really think it makes sense to add "Player: " before a player name... So, let it be as introduced.

Yessss. Smile

Now flags are easy to draw. Wink Smiley So I can make a couple. I presume there will be not only the nation's flags but also custom (like in Worms). Smile
The question is: which part of the thingie is the flag actually?


Does the flag INCLUDE the white border, or the black border, or neighter of them?
Like this:

Which reminds me - graves should definitely be updated with a couple more. Wink Smiley

Not that I know of

There will be nation and custom flags, the flags are 15px high and do NOT contain the white or black border

Thanks. Smile

I'd prefer

[Flag][Name or Team][Clean (no text) Health Bar]

Where Name/Team switches every 2-3 seconds (blending to black, blending to text, blending to black, ...)

I like the idea;)

Good idea. Now we can see where everyone is from.

Sweet! I like Smile

Hmm, dunno. It'll destract me...Something's changing down there. So I'll unintentially look at it. But that's just me. Smile Would be nice to have some kind of layout-option in the game's opions menu, where you can choose different layouts that is - where timer, wind direction etc are placed on the screen.

Might use these flags.

There should be an option to disable flags because they can sometimes fuel bad things, flaming and nonobjective playing.

Don't think so. Big Grin An IVW 1? (=International Verbal War 1)
Pee?

btw, thanks for the link, nemo. Smile A question thought: why are some flags of the same country displayed more than once?

@rbaleksander
I just automatically scaled 'em - the flag pack had some flags in varying sizes. Of course for rendering probably would want a standard size, and if the flag was wider than that, the left/right edges could be clipped.

Aha, alright then. It's important to know what size the flags will be. Yes, Tiyuri said 15px hight, but when I saw this...All well, everything's alright now. Smile

I like the new bars. About the flags... It's nice to have some of "outdated ones" for historical reasons. There would be people using them. Example of those: Old Yugoslavia, Soviet Union, etc. The other thing... If you use sodipodi ones, pay attencion there are few flags missing. "Serbia & Montenegro" is no more. Now there are "Serbia" and "Montenegro", the separate countries, not union anymore. Smile

I'm sure this will happen sooner or later. First it'll be nice to add the typical country lags. Then the community can add more...Like these (I've always liked such flags ^^):

lol Yeh, I've noticed that too. No Serbia,Bojan. Wink Smiley btw I've just noticed that there is a nazi flag on the list. Big Grin

Where did you see nazi flag? I don't see it. Wink Smiley

The swastika flag? It's surrounded by Guinea, Germany, Kuwait, Kyrgystan, Ghana and Eritrea. Wink Smiley

PS: One finds what he seeks. Big Grin

Wow... I didn't see that...
