[Sugestion] Ufopedia window bigger
« on: August 13, 2018, 07:11:19 pm »
Since the Ufopedia allow several new category┬┤s, is it possible to expand the window as you add categories?

No, this window covers the entire screen in the original resolution, and since it uses buttons instead of a text list, we can't easily make it scroll either.

It's a possibility, but given that many of the section titles take up more than half of the button, most of the text would be going outside the area of the button. We should wait for Meridian to weigh in on this though, as he's better at UI stuff than I am.

How about << and >> buttons at the bottom to cycle pages? It's not that great for usability maybe, compared to proper scrolling, but if you can use the cursor keys to change the page I think it would be okay.

It would allow a major improvement to Piratez current method of listing all 14,838,976 "Tools of The Trade" in one category that's 3,960,476 pages long. A second page of categories could reduce the time it takes to find X-Nipple Mounted LasScatter entry to less then ten minutes.

Hmm, there should probably be a nipple mounted laser shotgun in Piratez too! Maybe I should work on a mod for that after I make a mod for gear slots.

You do know you can search the ufopedia list with the Q hotkey right?

You can now add categories to your heart's content in vanilla. (will have to wait until OXCE merges it)
