I got bored this morning and decided to create a custom UI. It works ingame and its easy to import.
To import, go to the import manager and click either Import File... or Import Files... I suggest you click import files, because it's quicker. Just select the folder where the UI files are stored and click import. Select each one and click Use Custom Paths. Use the paths that I have typed below.

HumanUITile01.blp - UI\Console\Human\HumanUITile01.blp
HumanUITile02.blp - UI\Console\Human\HumanUITile02.blp
HumanUITile03.blp - UI\Console\Human\HumanUITile03.blp
HumanUITile04.blp - UI\Console\Human\HumanUITile04.blp
HumanUITile-InventoryCover.blp - UI\Console\Human\HumanUITile-InventoryCover.blp

I hope you enjoy it. Credits to me if used in a map, comments appreciated.

EDIT: I should just say that the line down the middle of the portrait area is not on the actual design. I am not really sure why its in the picture :S

Still no clue of how to modify the:
HumanUITile-TimeIndicatorMask01
HumanUITile-TimeIndicatorMask01
HumanUITile-TimeIndicatorFrame

I'm waiting. I suppose someone will answer, soon or later (myself, I still have no clue, and I'm stuck on this part of the interface modding).

For the ones who doesn't know what I'm asking about, is to try to find the way to overlap our custom "time-circle" over the ugly human one from the default game. The tiles are not inside the Game Interface, and I suppose it is a trick to tweak around the Import Editor thing. But, how to tweak it? I really don't know...

@UndeadDragon
I am glad the tut worked for you too. I like the textures, but I see them a bit plain. Try to add shadows where it is needed and to tone down the highlights in the places where the light is too saturated for the place where they are placed. That will build up in the feeling of 3D and may eat the plain-ness of the rest of the interface. The rest is nice.
Did you managed to substitute the time-disc? Because I have the feeling that you have the same problem as me.

You need a Readme in the .zip file to get it approved. Also, there are 2 files that don't seem to be necessary; what are they?

This is not the place to be asking questions. Go read some tutorials about it.

The bottom right boxes look a bit uneven and the top where the moon/sun clock is looks very unfancy. Not to compare you with blizzard or anything, but if you haven't noticed there custom interface has a fancy design, I think this should be reworked a little bit more before it's a +REP or good in my oppinion :cool:

Also from knights picture everything looks crooked.

Overall it was decent. Could be better. :)

Thanks for the comments, sorry about the late response.

@Ravernore: I forgot about the time indicator on this one. I might update it after I have finished my SATS revision.

@Knight7770: I will add a readme.txt to the zip file as soon as I can, but what are those 2 files that aren't needed?

@Mr.Tutorial: Thanks for your tips, I will add these to the design soon, aswell as redesigning the Time-Indicator area.

Looks great apart from a few things

1) The time indicator, the grey part is too square IMO. Maybe you should make the corners more rounded

2) The HP/MP boxes... there's something about them that makes me think it doesn't suit the rest of the UI. Could be just me though :S Maybe it's the fact that they are much darker than everything else around it.

Overall, I think it looks good, would be cool to see this used in a map. +rep

Also, you could add a little more info on importing. What if someone with no importing experience comes along and tries to import it. Where are they supposed to type those custom paths? Is there anything else required other than importing the files? Isn't there something in Game Interface that must be changed to get this to work?

If you change the import paths, then you do not need to alter the Game Interface, but I will add more information about the importing now, thanks.

EDIT: Added Import information

No, just import the files with their corresponding paths.

Sorry, just 1 file that isn't needed: Whole_Image.jpeg

Ok, I will now upload a better .zip file witout Whole_Image and with readme.txt.

EDIT: Re-uploaded the new .zip file, without Whole_Image and with readme.txt

Lol, that is just C'n'p from the sunken ruins texture. :p

It looks a little odd because some areas are sharp while others blurry.

The UI was made more on CnP from doodad textures instead of freehand. Also in the inventory boxes there are small golden lines:confused: and other details, some parts esp. the minimap have sharp edges. Lastly it's decent and good, +rep, only need some parts to be changed for it to be approved.

OFFTOPIC i suppose: Here I'll show you guys a WIP concept of my first UI for my TSoT(Sadly it's just a preview, I lost the original file so it's not editable, anyways I'll be making a better version w/ less CnPs and more freehand graphics)

Look at the ingame screenshot. 2 of the parts aren't alined.
It looks blurry, and like a mass CnP job.

Jonadrin posts that UI everywhere xD

Looks too chunky, I can telll were you copy pasted blocks of stuff.. ><

Looks ok, but not good enough for me to want to use it in a map really..

Sorry, I removed it, but if you want me to re-upload it I will.

It's not exactly my best quality work though. I am working on a free hand one at the moment, so if you wait a bit, then I should have it up fairly soon.

Hey guys....I have a Mac
I can see only the UndeadUITile 1/2/3/4 with my BLP Tool.

The problem is that some parts of the frame is ruined.....Is no Linear.
So when i test the map i see some small black things coming out from my work!!!!!
There isn't any Mac software to modify the original model!!

-Is there a solution for this Bug????

-Or can some1 pass me .tga files of HumanUITile 1/2/3/4 pls???? (if Linear)

Can U show me your work without BLACK Backgound??
Mine looks like this (but is still under work)

Tnx anyway ^^
 
General chit-chat
Help Users
  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Varine Varine:
    I ordered like five blocks for 15 dollars. They're just little aluminum blocks with holes drilled into them
  • Varine Varine:
    They are pretty much disposable. I have shitty nozzles though, and I don't think these were designed for how hot I've run them
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to extract it but the thing is pretty stuck. Idk what else I can use this for
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll throw it into my scrap stuff box, I'm sure can be used for something
  • Varine Varine:
    I have spare parts for like, everything BUT that block lol. Oh well, I'll print this shit next week I guess. Hopefully it fits
  • Varine Varine:
    I see that, despite your insistence to the contrary, we are becoming a recipe website
  • Varine Varine:
    Which is unique I guess.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Actually I was just playing with having some kind of mention of the food forum and recipes on the main page to test and see if it would engage some of those people to post something. It is just weird to get so much traffic and no engagement
  • The Helper The Helper:
    So what it really is me trying to implement some kind of better site navigation not change the whole theme of the site
  • Varine Varine:
    How can you tell the difference between real traffic and indexing or AI generation bots?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The bots will show up as users online in the forum software but they do not show up in my stats tracking. I am sure there are bots in the stats but the way alot of the bots treat the site do not show up on the stats
  • Varine Varine:
    I want to build a filtration system for my 3d printer, and that shit is so much more complicated than I thought it would be
  • Varine Varine:
    Apparently ABS emits styrene particulates which can be like .2 micrometers, which idk if the VOC detectors I have can even catch that
  • Varine Varine:
    Anyway I need to get some of those sensors and two air pressure sensors installed before an after the filters, which I need to figure out how to calculate the necessary pressure for and I have yet to find anything that tells me how to actually do that, just the cfm ratings
  • Varine Varine:
    And then I have to set up an arduino board to read those sensors, which I also don't know very much about but I have a whole bunch of crash course things for that
  • Varine Varine:
    These sensors are also a lot more than I thought they would be. Like 5 to 10 each, idk why but I assumed they would be like 2 dollars
  • Varine Varine:
    Another issue I'm learning is that a lot of the air quality sensors don't work at very high ambient temperatures. I'm planning on heating this enclosure to like 60C or so, and that's the upper limit of their functionality
  • Varine Varine:
    Although I don't know if I need to actually actively heat it or just let the plate and hotend bring the ambient temp to whatever it will, but even then I need to figure out an exfiltration for hot air. I think I kind of know what to do but it's still fucking confusing
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Maybe you could find some of that information from AC tech - like how they detect freon and such
  • Varine Varine:
    That's mostly what I've been looking at
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I'm dealing with quite the same pressures though, at the very least its a significantly smaller system. For the time being I'm just going to put together a quick scrubby box though and hope it works good enough to not make my house toxic
  • Varine Varine:
    I mean I don't use this enough to pose any significant danger I don't think, but I would still rather not be throwing styrene all over the air
