Okay, tonight I really started digging into widget system, and now I'm really scared of what I have found out...
Is there any way to make widgets use different title bars????? If there isn't, then that is a [big]SEVERE,[/big]
[/size] severe limitation on the system.
Here is what I have so far:
As you can see, I only have one type of title bar for every widget type: the resource bar, the mini-map and the display panel look all the same. The issue is that there are all different shapes and sizes and using only a single image to cover all of these in a way that looks good... Is a bit of a challenge. Not to mention a HUGE limit on mod-ability.
As far as I can tell there isn't a way to make them different from eachother (I'm hoping that I'm wrong). If this is the case then basically every GUI will look just like a retex of the original... This should probably be considered a fairly big design oversight...
Sorry if I am wrong and I'm just making a fool of myself... I was just REALLY surprised by this. I mean, everything else is just, insanely customisable and then this is just.... REALLY disappointing.
