Proper UI mod
by
The-F & Q


Description:
Every addon released by the PROPER Mod team has a special structure to allow people analyze our work and learn from it.
Features in detail:
    * Simple, feature specific addon.
    This means that every logical change is separated into one single pbo to make the changes very clear and easy to understand.

    * Advanced inner structure.
    Each addon contains a single config.cpp. This file only points to the rest of the content via #include statements. Textures, sounds, config values are separated into various subfolders. Configs are separated into at least into cfgPatches.hpp and Core.hpp.

    * Documentation.
    The Core.hpp (to be found in the \h subfolder) contains (technical) comments at the top about the changes done by the addon. Sometimes even additional information about config values are described.

    * Study and learn.
    PROPER Mod addons aim for high (technical) quality and (hopefully) no errors to be found in the ArmA.RPT. So for example more complex topics like working class inheritance and properly updating existing class can be found in our work.
Installation:
NEVER ever put addons (pbo files) in the ArmA\addons folder!

NOT RECOMMENDED TO BE USED IN MULTIPLAYER! THIS WILL BE CONSIDER CHEATING!
NOT TESTED IN MULTIPLAYER - THERE IS ALWAYS THE CHANCE TO CRASH THE SERVER WITH MODIFIED DATA - DON'T USE IT IN MP. PERIOD.

If the server and all clients would use it, it is a different matter of course.

Just put the single pbo file from any PROPER Mod addon in a Modfolder's addon folder. Like
..\ArmA\@PROPER\addons\PROPER_example.pbo
More information about using mod folders can be found in our FAQ.

PROPER UI Compass Size Expanded
    Rescaled the compass object to make it far better readable.
PROPER UI Difficulty Options Dialog Redesign
    Redesign of the old difficulty dialog. Design goal is to make it look clean, well structured: new difficulty dialog.

PROPER_UI_GPS_Watch_Compass_Radio_Model_Reworked.pbo
    Redesign of the GPS, compass and clock model. Design goal is to make it convenient to use and not block the the players view as much as possible: better readable.

    Design goal is to make it convenient to use and not block the the players view too much possible.
PROPER UI InGameUI Cursor Color Changed
    Changed the selection and leader cursor color to yellow and expanded the cursors size to make it easier to perceive it.
    Credits to the unkown initial addon maker of this idea!
PROPER UI Instant Map Object Zoom
    Changed zoom duration of map objects to instant.
PROPER UI Key Configuration Dialog Redesign
    Redesign of the old key configuration dialog. Design goal is to make it look clean, well structured: new key configuration dialog.
PROPER UI Main Menu Dialog Redesign
    Complete redesign of the old main menu dialog.
    Design goal is to make it look clean, well structured and to be able to access all sub menus instantly and directly (without an animation): new main menu dialog.
PROPER UI Menu Click Sound
    Removed sound of clicking buttons and entering menus (MOUSE2.wav and MOUSE3.wav ).
    Instead you will only hear this NEW1.wav sound.
PROPER UI Missions Dialog Redesign
    Redesign of the old missions dialog. Design goal is to make it look clean, well structured: new missions dialog.
PROPER UI MP Lobby Dialog Redesign
    Complete redesign of the old MP lobby dialog.
    Design goal is to make it look clean and well structured. In addition the dialog should display as much information as possible and still remain tidy (broader colums; more colums; selected server view at the very end (server name; selected mission and island; difficulty setting; server version and country) : new MP lobby dialog.
    Todo / Bug: As you can see the player listing on the right side doesn't work as desired yet. Any advice is appreciated a lot!
PROPER UI MPTable Redesign
    Design goal is the complete removal of the MPTable / scores screen to make people concentrate more on playing rather than statistics.
    Todo / Bug: As you can see on this screenshot the is still a small piece left of the dialog. Any advice how to get rid of it completely is appreciated a lot!
PROPER UI No ActionIcons
    Design goal is the complete removal of the console like action markers and tank marker . The action menu in the lower right corner should do the trick even better.
    In addition the action menu priorities have been reworked for better playability (more useful sequence). Check the two action menu priorities tables at the very end of this page:
      PROPER UI Action Menu Priority Infantry
      PROPER UI Action Menu Priority Vehicles
PROPER UI No Loading Anim
    Design goal is the removal of the loading animation (radar) . We found it annoying and without real use.
PROPER UI No LoadingPic
    Design goal is the complete removal of the loading pictures (like this) . We found it annoying after a while and without real use. Black screen all the way.
PROPER UI No PeripheralVision
    Design goal is the removal of the enemy / friendly / neutral peripheral vision indicator at the edge of the screen. It might be an experiment to simulate peripheral vision. However to us it seems more like a console feature. People should learn to get a proper awareness of the game world without artificial tools for themselves.
    In addition the console like blood splash at the center of the screen was removed as well. Awareness should come from natural visuals and sounds, not from artificial tools.
PROPER UI No Progress Bar
    Removes the progress bar animation for all dialogs apart from the map download progress bar (no progress bar demo video).
PROPER UI SelectIslands Dialog Redesign
    Redesign of the old select islands dialog. Design goal is to make it look clean, well structured: new select islands dialog.
PROPER UI Solid Black Ingame Menus Background CSL
    Replaced the ingame menu background with solid black . This makes the menus and dialogs a lot more convinient to read.
    Full credit to ColonelSandersLite for this great replacement!
PROPER UI Speedup Gear
    The addon is meant to speedup the gear dialog. The initial loading lag should be eliminated.
PROPER UI Speedup RscMapControl
    The addon is meant to speedup the display of the map and map objects like the compass. The initial loading lag should be eliminated or significantly reduced.
PROPER_UI_Transparent_Ingame_Menus_Background_CSL
    Replaced the ingame menu background with a transparent one. This makes the menus and dialogs a lot less distracting. Similar to the PROPER UI Solid Black Ingame Menus Background CSL addon. You can only use one of the at a time.
    Full credit to ColonelSandersLite for this great replacement!
PROPER UI Video Options Redesign
    Complete redesign of the old video options dialog .
    Design goal is to be able to actually see the changes while changing your settings.
    You can now instantly (without an animation) switch between basic settings or advanced settings or hide the dialog altogether (not new).
