    a big problem for me with this mod is, that it doesnt highlight selected units' icons. Is this a bug?

    Would it be possible for you to try doing icons for the popular balance mods. Your icons are the best, and I would appreciate it if you could try to create the icons.

    Seeing as how Moldez hasn't been on since April I've taken the liberty of updating and releasing a new version of the mod myself. While obviously I'm no Moldez, I think I did at least an adequate job. Please tell me what you think.

    The metal resources are much harder to see.

    Hmm, these icons aren't actually transparent. But anyway, do you want me to make them have white borders when you select them?

    It probably wont look so good, and I am not willing to edit every icon to make it look better when I have no interest in using it myself.

    EDIT: Oh they are slightly transparent. Still, the design of these icons definitely are not with selection state in mind.

    There seems to be some code in particle_icon.vs to create more than one selection state. Don't know what it was intended for since it wasn't actually used at all. Parts of the icon that would be rendered black will now render white when selected.

    They were transparent in the very beginning of the mod :p

    I used a modfied shader of xedis mod - I kept the parts for selection markers in for a possible later use *g*

    cheers,

    Moldez?

    Where have you been?

    Will you maintain the mod once again?

    Moldez hasn't been seen since September and Transicons is out of date. I've disabled it for now but I'll release an update if there is demand.

    Why have you disabled it? It doesn't break anything and is completely up-to date for pre-Titans PA.

    Unless a mod is broken, or breaks the game, no one but the author has any business disabling it.

    Good point about it working on PA Classic. Re-enabled for now.
