[suggestion] BUFF window (temporary resistance indicator)

Post by tangar » Wed Jun 15, 2016 1:44 pm

Its a big problem to understand when your temporary resistance (from potions or item activation) would end its effect. I think this information is quite essential and it would be great to have it at UI. It could look like this:

Image

Algorithm:
1) if you don't drink pots/activate items - it doesn't showed
2) if you drink particular potion - only one indicator showed. For example, if you drink res heat potions - only red star appeared.
3) when effect is close to end (5 turns left), stars become to blink or maybe fade in color. So you could estimate essential time to drink another potion if its needed.

It would be great to have such feature! :)

There are many game improvements that can be stolen from Vanilla Angband. TomeNET is still stuck with old code (2.7.x-2.8.x) and could benefit a lot from the latest UI improvements.

I didn't took this idea from other roguelike game; just figured out by myself that resistance panel would be very nice to have in Tomenet. Is this indicator build-in in other angband variants?

For now maybe just add possibility to see 'double resistances' in C-h-h screen? Make Fi-Co-El-Ac-Po yellow when you drink res potion. It would be much easier then reworking interface, but still could help a lot )

Maybe even just make separate very small window? For example, size 6x8 (6 rows, 8 columns) would fit perfectly to my TomeNET interface, cause I got such gap in top right corner :D If you got other type of interface, such window still would be very useful, you could put if to any position you want :)

It could be not only for resistances, but also for other buffs and debuffs.. But the most crucial thing for now - resistances! It could be just 1 sylbol indicatior - is Potion of Resistance active or not.. and when it come close to deactivate - make it blink.

It would help A LOT :D Please!

Yet another stupid (in terms of UI) death cause we do not have buff window. Disruption shield has to be there or it could be very easely confused with Black breath.

Guys, please.

Please.

PLEASE.

PLEASE.

Add SMALL 6x8 window with buff indicators.
