  1. Animation != gameplay Animation is a fluff add-on with a lower priority than common-sense user interface design which DIRECTLY affects/impacts gameplay. Too many developers add new features instead of fixing/improving existing features; this is known as "feature creep".
  2. Game development 101: animation < gameplay
  3. Still no after 3 years?? Come on, devs, wake the hell up...
  4. An option to have transparency (like in Eris' Minimap mod) would be nice too.
  5. https://theindiestone.com/forums/index.php?/topic/25180-crafting-ui-lacks-global-recipe-search/ has some "patch" files (text files that show differences in a file) but you have to manually add the lines in the correct place in \media\lua\client\ISUI\ISCraftingUI.lua to get an "All" tab in the craft window which will show ALL recipes (but is slow-loading and scrolling) with a filter option. Like the other tabs, the doable recipes are highlighted at the top.
  6. Yes, the line is: for i = 1,v.items do Also, regarding the craft window, I don't know LUA but looking at \media\lua\client\ISUI\ISCraftingUI.lua do you know what to edit to get the ingredients list box to be bigger (wider and taller) so it doesn't require scrolling so much? I tend to have the craft window as tall as my screen (1200px) but the ingredients list is so small in comparison and doesn't use up all available space (but does widen a bit if the craft window is REALLY wide--but that's impractical). I also want to reduce the font and space (margin/padding) in the recipe list. It's so horribly designed and requires SO much scrolling instead of being more organized by function (as I described in this topic's 1st post). Any ideas? Thanks.
  7. Wow, thanks! Now I can finally combine and "consolided" (is that even a word? I think they mean "consolidate") these things that annoyingly take up precious inventory space (and database bytes). As for the right-click errors, now I'm getting lots of these: 1552334027419 STACK TRACE 1552334027419 ----------------------------------------- 1552334027419 function: createMenuEntries -- file: ISCompassMenu.lua line # 138 1552334027419 Callframe at: se.krka.kahlua.integration.expose.MultiLuaJavaInvoker@70ee0a6e 1552334027419 function: createMenu -- file: ISInventoryPaneContextMenu.lua line # 207 1552334027419 function: onRightMouseUp -- file: ISInventoryPane.lua line # 1075 ...which is the same line in ISCompassMenu.lua as before.
  8. How is it "clearly not a PZ issue" when ISInventoryPaneContextMenu.lua is not in any Hydrocraft mod folder but is in Project Zomboid\media\lua\client\ISUI\ISInventoryPaneContextMenu.lua?
  9. This game's interface seems heavily influenced from Wurm (also a Java game). While that's good in some respects, it's bad in others. From https://steamcommunity.com/app/108600/discussions/0/1837937637881281572/: Why can't items be combined outside of the main player inventory container? So annoying having to move everything just to combine them! Certain items can't be combined. Seems silly to me why thread, twine, and wire can't be combined individually (obviously not different materials on the same reel/spool). It's especially odd that wire can't be combined considering other types of wire (copper, steel, etc) can. I just checked \media\scripts\items.txt and it shows thread as "type = drainable" and newitems.txt (same folder) shows twine and wire as drainable too so why aren't these items able to be "poured" (combined) together (individually)?! Maybe Hydrocraft is screwing it up? I couldn't find these items listed (aside from in recipes) in any of Hydrocraft's \media\scripts\*.txt so maybe something else is overriding the "drainability" of these items? I see a red box appear in the bottom right corner at times while right-clicking things in my inventory so I checked console.txt and perhaps these errors are causing a problem with combining certain items? Why is combining non-liquid things still called "pour"? Seems "combine" or "mix" would be a better general-purpose term for everything... From https://steamcommunity.com/app/108600/discussions/2/1842440600603024214/ : Craft window: the left-side list of things to craft is VERY cluttered. Why not have expandable menus that have the root action/function (box, build, bury, clean, close, craft, drill, jar, make, open, pack, place, refill, remove, stack, take, unbox, unpack, unstack, wash, etc) listed that right-expand with all the additional functions? Having to use the name filter all the time gets annoying fast. An option to list/sort by item would also be nice instead of only listing alphabetically by action/function so instead of listing by action/function the list is by item (ammo, logs, seeds, etc). Clicking the scrollbar should move the window pane position down and clicking the scrollbar down arrow does nothing. Tab should move between form fields (text input, radio, checkbox, etc) and double-clicking a word should select it (triple-click selects all text in field). Mousewheel scrolling in a pane, then alt-tabbing out of and back into the game should not reset the pane position to the selected item and instead leave the pane scrolled to where it was before alt-tabbing. New: Craft window needs a global tab search instead of only each tab. So annoying especially with Hydrocraft! Pinned status of craft and health windows isn't remembered on game load. Inventory columns need to be thinner and need a weight column. Stack tooltip should show quantity. Can't always see quantity with narrow columns and small font. Favoriting (starring) a craft recipe scrolls list all the way to top. List position should remain and not reset, requiring having to scroll all the way BACK to where the still-selected recipe is.
  10. How to apply .patch files?

  11. How to apply these .patch files? Nothing comes up in a Google site search and this forum search is crap. Figured it out and it was only 4 lines to manually insert for the "All" tab. Wish it wasn't so slow but better than nothing. Thanks!
