Did I miss the download link? Or will this be released with the stable 2.5 version? Looks great!

With the whole UI system undergoing an overhaul in the 2.5 development cycle, I have abandoned releasing this as a mod for the existing stable version. Now the UI is merged into our development repository and is being worked on as a mod there.

The only way to test this UI is to either compile it from the GIT repository yourself, or download a nightly version (for Windows only). Read this page for how to activate it under 2.5-dev.

Edit: crossed out bad information

Hi, I tried both the addon to the shortcut as well as the console command and both didn't work for me. When I typed the command, I was told to load the mod (something like that) and I had only one option called "base", I clicked it and nothing happened. (besides the game reloading real quick)

you must have 2.5 dev and it must contains both ./base and ./mods/ui2

I have 2.5 dev but I don't have the mods folder. Why not, where do I get it?

You should get the latest. If you use GIT to get the repository yourself, make sure you're up-to-date and recompile. If you're on Windows, you can download a nightly build in the download section above.

Its released with the 2.5 GIT version only - afaik it isnt featured in the nightly builds. Oh and you have to activate it through a console command.

Read the thread - it explains. It is the standard UI in the 2.6 dev version though... alas, 2.6 has a number of issues at the moment that make the campaign unplayable IIRC (the main one for me being the inability to perform research).

 I gotthe 2.6 version by accident a month ago, and was surprised by the new unusable (but awesome) interface. Currently, how can i get the 2.5 version (ssources from git for linux)?

If you cloned the Git repository, you can simply switch branch:

Code: [Select]
git checkout ufoai_2.5

And update:

Code: [Select]
git pull --rebase
