|0009201||AI War||[All Projects] Bug - UI||Aug 11, 2012 11:37 pm||Aug 12, 2012 10:16 pm|
|Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0009201: Apply to ship(s) button|
|Description||Took me awhile to figure out what the deal was with this button.|
The issue is when you start up a game (new or loaded save), and use the CTRLS tab to get to your ship layout, the "Apply to Ship(s)" button is missing.
Cycling to the Champ UI with ctrl+H and the button is back.
Going back to Normal UI with ctrl+L and the button is there.
This would just be for the Normal+Champ mode player as the button is there for the "extra" champs all the time.

|This button is only supposed to show when your selection contains a modular ship, and no other types of ship (multiple of the exact same type is ok), is it not showing in that case?|

With no unit selected at all for Champs 1 - 7 the button is always there no matter how you get to the ship design tab.
For Normal+Champ this was happening. I'll load up my sandbox save and check the 2 new ships.
Edit: Checked the save. It happens for with all the Champ ship types for Norm+Champ.
Load into game, click on CRTLS and Ship Design. Click on current ship and no button. Close. CRTL+H to cycle the UI to the Norm+Champ Champ UI. CTRLS, Ship Design, no button. CTRL+H to cycle to Champ 1 player position UI and the "Apply to Ship(s)" button is there. CTRL+L back to the Normal UI and the "Apply to Ship(s)" button is back.
Note: the "Switch Ship" button is there for the inactive designs in all instances I have checked.

Added a screenshot of the Normal+Champ UI with the button missing.
I have just loaded up the save and used the CTRLS tab to get there.

Just started a new sandbox to look at this and the result is the same. New game had 8 champs. NO player position has the Apply to Ship(s) right from the start.
At that point I took my flight of SHFF to a wormhole and leveled them up. After being able to click the upper right notification, the button was back for all player positions.

Oh, a couple other restrictions:
1) It can't be used (and shouldn't be showing) if you have units from more than one player slot selected, so it doesn't have to check for tech-availability for multiple players at the same time (gotta draw the complexity line somewhere).
2) It only shows when the design being shown is the same type (for example, Human Shadow Destroyer) as the ship in your selection. If you want to actually change the base hull you need to use "Switch Ship".

Yeah, I pretty much got those restrictions. I don't believe I'm hitting those.
In the SS I attached, I'm on the Norm+Champ Norm UI and I have the SHDD active.

|Hmm, okay, and did you get to the ship design screen by Ctrl+M or by opening the context menu and selecting "view ship modules"?|
Aug 12, 2012 3:20 pm
|I use the CTRLS button down in the bottom left corner of the screen.|

|Yea, I don't think that way even tries to link up with your selection, but I could make it try to do so :)|
Aug 12, 2012 10:16 pm
|I guess it stays linked after the first time you make it link up? I would put this on the list of stuff to do (or try) when you are doing polish passes later on. And I'm still of the mind that the Champs need their own window in the interface for management. It is going to be real crowed in the ship design window.|
