Dyom User Interface in V8.0

Recommended Posts

Shmoopy

Hi ,

 

I know that this is a suggestion but it will improve the modification a lot , since you will be able to use your mouse to navigate the menu and lists of skins/cars ect...

 

So here is an exemple that i've made :

 

 

user posted image

 

 

 

Plus the texture is located and loaded from the Gta user interface directory icon14.gif

 

 

So , what's your OP ? monocle.gif

Why it wouldn't be possible in V8? Developing on the next version isn't even started.

 

OT: Can you upload some more pictures? I want to see what else can this feature do. Will it make browsing cars or objects faster?

Supported, but it would be very hard to script.

It's actually almost the same, it's just that need to make the arrow keys a mouse. like [if.button.getdown.mouse= gui texture] something like that, if they use Java

I Prefer this instead of the Interface we have now. I Mean faster Actor/Car browsing!

And instead of using the GTA3.img Names for the Skins instead they could take the time to

rename all the skins (Example: copla Becomes LS Police.

 

EDIT: However the problem is the 'Mouse'. Many players use

the 'Mouse+Keys' Setting & if you use the mouse to select

things that also means that you are rotating the Camara.

 

Know What I Mean?

No the camera doesn't rotate , its easy to script but takes so much time

So, When the menu is open then the Camara Rotation disables until the menu closes?

Nice.

this cool UI is better for DYOM, making a new Mission Maker is not a good idea, everyone use DYOM.

Have you asked for permission?

If it uses menu like that, it might be better in navigation, maybe not in features though.

Not supported. Would make it harder to design. Selecting stuff with keyboard without having to move to your mouse is much easier.

I fully agree that such an interface looks more attractive and might even help design missions faster.

But there are several reasons that we kept the UI part as simple as possible, some of the most iportant being:

1) We want DYOM easy to install/remove. We achieve this by having it as a pure SCM script mod, using the MPACK system. If we added fancy textures and such, this would not work anymore.

2) Codesize for SCM mod is limited by the engine, and we're already very close to exhausting it.

3) The current menu's are native to the game engine, mouse based menu would have to be implemented fully in SCM, occupying scarse SCM code-space

4) The amount of work we can put in DYOM is limited. If we work on DYOM, we rather like to focus on features that add new gameplay elements than on eyecandy for the designer.

Yes you're right , i gave up after figuring out that it consumes alot of cpu and crashed the game often .

Yeah, i agree with PatrickW . Its better to add more feature than work on the new interface. Because feature is more important.

Awesome man, it's good for the next version, i think it will be faster than with keyboard!

Hope it's not hard to script...

I came up with new ideas for subsequent DYOM are simple ideas that could be used much. Here are my ideas:

 

1 - Items actors: he has an actor you can put an object, such as an actor can put a backpack (parachute) but that is only ornaments, and so have in your hand, a gun, it would be an enemy gun, or even a cigar in hand, or a bottle of beer, or even, to put something in your other hand, like a suitcase, items also as actor, bleed and facial expressions count (chewing gum, talking, etc..).

 

2 - text box: and when you start the game standard in gta san andreas, when you indicate that you step on the red bike that target, you can put a text box, like when you say "press the W to speed ".

 

3 - walking style: the player to change his style of walking, drunk, gangster, or normal person, even walk like a thief (in the mission when Colonel asaltas together has rayder when searching for Grove Street weaponry (Mission of the standard game)).

 

4 - out of the car for another purpose: when you go to a target, checkpoint by car, you can cut that goal, because, well, for example, you're serving a route checkpoints with the car, but that the last checkpoint is met a person, not that you need the car to meet the checkpoint (you can not in the current version of DYOM)

 

5 - menu of cheats: for example, when you start a mission, which by default can start with some cheats, for example, in the mission menu, select the cheats you can start (everyone attacks you, or all world are bands).

 

6 - more objects: it has a capacity of more objects if you can, and if not, well, who knows, but there are more objects as generating pump smoke (the smoke machine that appears in the nightclub, and had already suggested above) trash cans, wooden houses can be destroyed, those who find the way up the canyon desert (where toreno, gives you the mission to destroy some helicopters and no weapons boxes), and ornaments garbage, as you see in burger shot on the ground, leaves, trash, newspapers thrown, thrown pizza boxes, etc.. to perform as in catastrophe scenarios with rubbish lying on the floor, etc..

 

7 - player animations: as in the countdown goal, aside from this goal, there is another, but in this, not appear numbers, but the player freezes, and Realize an animation while it frozen.

 

and of course the things already suggested earlier:

 

-Reason to fail the mission

-Multiple targets

-False targets

-Power open all the doors of a car (trunk, door)

-Player fighting styles or actor (martial arts, boxing, etc..)

-Actors with two guns

-More animations like (within any home, if you get in the mission of thief, an animation like when you see the person sitting on the couch, or when the swat dare to attack when covered)

-Drive by the style of the mission where you attack aircraft to protect Zero antennas

- And the many other things that have been suggested

 

For some good mod, and well, sorry for my bad English and thanks for listening again.

Well, not if this idea would help, but what about that to solve the problems that the engine capadicidad is created as 8 programs, (all are full DYOM) but each program, is 1 phase to manufacture mission so you can increase the chances, and not reach the limit of the capabilities, and to speak, these 8 programs, one program to add only objects, another program to increase the cars, one for the players, another for the player and options, etc.. and finally, in January to join the mission, well, I hope there is some value in this idea, sorry for my bad english, good luck and goodbye.

*ideas*

Man, you need to post your ideas in the ideas thread. Also, you need to understand, that not everything could be done in DYOM. If you want more features to your missions, then go learn how to script. Scripting is hard but once you get used to it it's easy. You just need ideas and how to release them in the script.

and what is man, write code to carry this reality is that it is difficult, I have the experience of how difficult it is, for example, game maker, is a program that simplifies programming, and if, despite being simplified, it is very difficult to make a small action, but hey, there's nothing wrong to dream a little, but hey, is that maybe the next version of DYOM, does not contain much of these ideas, but some of them may be possible, it it's not easy, but still DYOM can gradually evolve and come to be a program of official standards. Sorry for my bad English, Good Luck.

Well... i don't know how to write codes in SCM Script, but i think it's really hard

But this is a good idea, and with some work from volunteers it may be working in a couple of months xD
