Default Re: Space Empires IV clone

Hi there, long time no post..

I too wish the best for this project, and I have one piece of advice.. don't use stock SE4 graphics for all the components and ships etc, use graphics from fan made mods, and try to use graphics for GUI frames, even if it's just a bitmap with a 1 pixel frame box around a blank middle.. that way us graphic artists might be encouraged to spiff up the GUI.. if you follow the SE4 route and hard code the frames and windows, it makes modding the GUI almost impossible. and I always thought that was the one aspect of SE4 that was un-modable.

That's my 2 cents,

Cheers!
