Ya know when you have a dream that you know will never happen? RTS features in Freespace was one of mine! :cool: Looking forward to seeing where you go with this guys; amazing so far.

Feel maybe the grid is a bit too bright (perhaps drop the alpha?) but that's just my personal pref there.

I'm glad you like it. :) As far as the grid goes, I think I'll have to wait for someone with more knowledge in lua. Nuke and Aardwolf got the original script done. I wish Aardwolf came back to IRC and stayed, but he lurks occasionally, so that's alright. Sara got the thing working for BP2 multi, so she should be able to fix it. If documentation for the script ever comes, I'll make sure that changing grid colors is easy to follow. ;)

EDIT: Just checked. The grid's brightness can easily be changed if you know some basic photo editing skills. However, after looking at the grid in-game (again) myself, I realized that the grid isn't as bright as Kyad's screen shows. It also has to do with the lighting settings. If you ever need help getting a darker version, though, I'll be here to help.

POST EDIT: New HUD tbm removes remnant floating Gauges and positions the Squad Message to somewhere less distracting/more visible.

You are not alone here. I think a lot of people thought about it without being able to create a viable interface until now.

I notice you're not using the #hero ship names feature...

FYI: you can add #hero to the end of a ship's name to make the name show up in addition to the class.

Ooh, I'll bet there's a lot we can learn from you. You happen to have any old documentation lying around or old threads we ought to be looking at?
