Message icons
« on: August 08, 2009, 03:01:28 pm »
Hello,

I commit a patch to display icons into the message log (the list on the top of the geoscape GUI).

At the moment we only have 17 message type (and i am not sure i understand every one). And i create 8 icons for it (construction, research, production, transfer, debug, info/event/standard/news, ufo/death/terror/baseattack/crashsite, promotion). See the attached PNG.

Here the list of message type:
Code: [Select]
MSG_DEBUG, /**< only save them in debug mode */
MSG_INFO, /**< don't save these messages */
MSG_STANDARD,
MSG_RESEARCH_PROPOSAL,
MSG_RESEARCH_HALTED,
MSG_RESEARCH_FINISHED,
MSG_CONSTRUCTION,
MSG_UFOSPOTTED,
MSG_TERRORSITE,
MSG_BASEATTACK,
MSG_TRANSFERFINISHED,
MSG_PROMOTION,
MSG_PRODUCTION,
MSG_NEWS,
MSG_DEATH,
MSG_CRASHSITE,
MSG_EVENT,

It is not yet possible, but, IMO we can think about adding one icon per message category or message type (see "message settings" GUI for the list of types and categories). Then if anybody want to improve this icon set, or to contribute for new message type, it is welcome.
