Relative GUI for static GUI elements

Post by Raiguard »

Just throwing this out there: It would be stupendously amazing if we could position GUI elements relative to the "static" GUI elements that are almost always shown. For example, the top-right GUI, the quickbar, shortcut bar, guns/ammo GUI, map editor GUI, etc. Right now it is possible to position elements like this by using hardcoded constants combined with display resolution and scale, but it is a very ugly method that is prone to error.

Thanks!

I would love to attach some gui to the hotbar, such as a custom additional progress bar (alongside health, shield, mining progress...) and other uses.
