Unit state information bars
« on: October 18, 2016, 09:24:54 PM »
Hi guys,

I invented a new feature which gives a quicker overview of the state of units when you hover the unit (card) with you cursor:

What do you think? Your opinion matters :)

Ooooh, how did you manage that? Is it just done in steps as an edit of the description/text files?

You don't have to click a mouse button to see it.

For morale and fatigue, yes.

as to it as a main feature: no. Perhaps an optional add-on? I personally think the player to have choice here--especially as I had this idea the other day (for my mod, but I'll share it here):

what about hiding all the information, and leave it to the player's wits and experience to decide? historically, a general wouldn't magically know if an enemy unit (or his own) were wavering/routing, save by great experience/talent.

While I don't propose this idea of mine as a default--only another option--it is something to consider, for those seeking a challenge.

We wouldn't be able to implement those as menu-level options, but we could certainly release some optional patches.
