Ingame icons and health bars!

Post by 4RC »

I'm one of those people who likes a bit of immersion time to time and flashing icons trigger me, A LOT! Is there an option to disable flashing icons like in image below and make them only appear in "Additional information mode"? I couldn't find anything related to that in options menu and I think it would be great addition to game. Without mods please!

Cheers!

I would love a toggle for the flashing icons too - maybe Ctrl?

They are very distracting when you are building - and they block the Alt icon.

The thing is... the flashing icons and damaged healthbars are like error displays; you can easily see at-a-glance why something isn't working without needing to mouseover and read the infobox.

Red blinking icons and damaged healthbars should always be shown; as these states are critically important.

Yellow icons should have a set of radio buttons in options: "Always Show (Default)", "Show in Detailed mode", and "Hide in Detailed mode".

...

A better long-term solution would be to do some graphical work to make the warning icons immersive, where the machine itself would self-illuminate with a projector of some kind. Instead of the current UI-level icon overlay.

Also the check box for "show warning signs" or "blink warning signs".

Guy's, just to be clear. I don't want health bars, warning and error icons to disappear.
I only want checkbox in interface menu that disables these bars when not in (alt mode)!

The number one tool for getting in game screen shots is Ctrl-PrtScr and MSpaint. :roll:
