Re: 0.4 UI thread

To accomodate (not only :wink: ) your brain cells, I would suggest an option in config.xml that allows to switch between generic and the specific icons. And frankly, I do agree with your point that the tech icons are not easily distinguishable from other items of the sitrep panel; however, the reas...

Re: Proposal: landscape images for planet environments

It would be important if we're having multiple pics to get across the idea that a desert world is a dry world with low or no precipitation, not necessarily a hot sandy world. But tundra areas also have very low precipitation... I have to admit, I'm not very clear on what distinguishes tundra from a...

Re: Building Icons

looks more and more fine imo Yes, I think I prefer #5, but I'd be fine with either #5 or #6. I'm going with #6: * The doing and undoing the terraforming icon are distinct. Even for people who are color blind. * Opposing arrow directions for converse operations are more clear. In that case, why not ...

Any reason for that? Why not replace "TargetPopulation low = 1" with "Species" in the location condition for the Evacuation building?

Re: Bloated Juggernauts and friends

The description is a bit misleading, since they don't actually do anything to the buildings as far as I know, but they will move towards an empire owned building if they see one. Black Krakens seem to have the same property, based on the scripts.

Re: Racial traits

What about renaming 'Pilot" to 'Gunner' to better reflect what effect it has? Then creating a new "Pilot' trait that has an effect on ship speed? Good idea, concerning the terms however I'd prefer a more generic term like "Fighters" instead of "Pilots"/"Gunners", and "Navigators" for species with s...

Re: Bombs

Some UI mock-ups. I used the little bar that shows up when you own planets in a system as a location for the bombard button. Any thoughts?

No, so that might be the problem.

OK - I'll just ignore it then.

Re: Copy/Paste

New PR using the SDL2 clipboard API, as recommended by adrian_broher: https://github.com/freeorion/freeorion/pull/119

I can't really commit to fixing it before 0.4.5 release if something goes wrong, so you can hold off on merging it until after the release branch is made if you want.

VS2010

Are we still supporting the VS 2010 solution? I just opened it up to test some code changes I made, but it fails for totally unrelated reasons, like some boost errors and missing png.h.

Re: Copy/Paste

Ah, I see. I was only trying it in the "Rename Fleet" dialog, so that explains why it doesn't work.

Bombs

I think we could use some bomb parts. I was trying to play a turtle-style strategy where I would separate my empire from the rest of the galaxy with just a few well guarded choke-points, then just send ships out to destroy the rest of the galaxy, but right now the only option I have for that is Nova...

Copy/Paste

Copy/paste isn't working for me. There's some code in GUI.cpp that seems to be trying to implement an app-local copy-paste, but even that doesn't work. Does anyone know what's going on with this code? Is it working for anyone else?
