This mod will add a radial orders menu around the mouse cursor, with the aim being to reduce unnecessary mouse movement when giving units orders. It should be compatible with existing UIs - it has been tested with Saya+Cleopatre's UI and ()((()'s (I think that's his name...) UI. Note that the middle mouse button conflicts with the camera zoompop in Saya/Cleopatre's UI, so you would need to disable that in his options screen to use these 2 together.
Control + Middle Mouse: common orders menu (move, patrol etc.)
Alt + Middle Mouse: alternate orders menu (Overcharge, Capture, Launch Nuke etc.)
Unzip the contents of this file to your '/supreme commander/mods/' folder, and select 'Radial Menu' from the mod manager in game.
1.0 Initial Release
Thanks to Saya for giving me a way to get the mouse screen position before GPG got round to creating a function for the job, and for generally making me tidy up my code. Also thanks to III_Demon for er, being inspirational, and checking my work, and to Pearl Charaxes and my girlfriend for helping with the backgrounds.
Any problems/suggestions, contact Goom on the GPG forums at Forums.gaspowered.com
If anybody likes this idea and wants to use it in their own mod they are free to do so. I'd appreciate credit for it if you do.
Thanks to Saya, III_Demon, Pearl Charaxes for their help with various things. Also to the people on the GPG mod developer support forum.
