badosu Posted July 3, 2020 Report Share Posted July 3, 2020 (edited) For some time now I've been wanting to make a spec mod. Currently the 'chrome', 'dashboard' or whatever the overlay is named provides little insight to what the player is doing. This is true for both players and specs. This is the benchmark I'd use, notice the production pane on top-left as well, income rate besides resource amounts on mid bottom and military upgrades on its right: The first step would be to implement the production overlay, the icons should be easy to display, just run a query over all production facilities to return the units, their amounts and the researching technologies. Would also be disabled for players, just enabled for specs at first. Ultimate goal would be to replace all of the current overlay with a minimal one with more relevant information on display, and also an alternate version for players. One blocker I could see are queries and their calculation taking a lot of CPU on each tick due to inefficient model or something similar. Otherwise I don't think there should be too many blockers I made this thread to ask if anyone has any suggestions, insights or tips on how to perform it (e.g. code I can look at for reference), thanks!
