Hi

There is no button for buyig/selling hiring/sucking !
Should this all go into transfer? Are there any GUI designs for this? I want to make temporary dialog for thats, but want to make as much close to final as possible :)

Beetle

edit: i checked on www.projectxenocide.com and discoverd that there in baseview screens there is Logistics button in place of Statistics. Can somebody clarify it for me?

So the question remains, although a little bit changed: Why don't we have a "manufacture" button in Baseview?

It does, and in UFO: Aftermath, at least, in the "Research and Development" screen you got to research and build stuff, not just research :)

I thought the "developent" refers to applied research whereas "research" refers to basic research...

Well, isn't building something you researched, applied research?

No, developing a prototype of the "Laser Pistol" out of the "Laser Priciples" research is applied research.

Ok, so currently we have in baseview following buttons:

- Build new base
- Base information
- New facility
- Equip craft
- R & D
- Transfer
- Statisctics
- Back to planetview
- small buttons at bottom of view for changing bases
- destroy button when one of facilities is selected

Now we have to think (or maybe already was this discussed) what tasks can player do from baseview GUI:

I think (i have placed ? sign on options wich propably should be done from geoscope):
- add new base ?
- show base info
- equip craft
- equip soldiers
- allocate research ?
- allocate production ?
- hire / sack emplyees
- buy / sell stuff
- build new facility
- destroy/scrapp facility
- go back to planetview :P
- transfer stuff between bases

Did i missed something?

I'd say that build/destroy facility options go on base view, not geoscape

That's exactly what i said :) Maybe i didn't made myself clear. I listed functions wich i'm thinking should be avaible from baseview GUI, and add a '?' sign at this functions wich propably could be also/only called from geoscope.

What about allocate Research/production? Are those globally? E.g. do we produce in all bases at the same time? If so, where do the finished products end up? For research it might make sense, but for production?

Maybe I missed the meaning of allocate here, though?

I think that making more plans about GUI is critical for xenocide! I don't mean prepared end version of graphics for GUI (which also would be very nice :P ) but a simple flow, which button opens wich screens, etc.

Can we assign someone for leading this??

edit: any volunteers? :P

We have done that with Mamutas and Vaaish a long time ago, may someone search the archives to get that important piece of information?
