[UI] Client-side mod for Elite-like UI unit order in vDoW2R?

Postby Agemmon » Fri 27 Dec, 2019 8:03 pm

Hey folks!

I was wondering if it was possible to create a client-side mod (online compatible) for vDoW2 Retribution that forces the UI for the units in DoW2 to reorder itself based on the control groups that a player has set. In the Elite mod, units within the unit UI are reordered when a player is setting their control groups. Units with a lower control group number will be reordered to appear on top / higher than units that have a higher control group number, rather than having a stagnant position in the unit UI based on the order that units were created.

Is it possible to create a client-side mod for vDoW2 that achieves this function? I find myself able to better keep track of my units in the Elite mod because of this feature and believe that it could be a useful addition in vDoW2 whenever I feel like playing with the unmodded community.

I honestly have no idea how the UI swapping was implemented but if/when I do, I think it would be a good idea to document it down for the non-Elite folk for sure.
