[mainline] option for old menu interface in 1.13.x

Post by ForestDragon » January 8th, 2018, 3:02 pm

If it's possible, it would be nice if there was an option to change some interface elements to their 1.12 state. (like recruit/recall option positions, using the old map selection GUI, etc.). While the new interface is certainly nice, it can be quite confusing after switching from 1.12

I don't know how likely it is that this would be added to mainline, but you could edit your theme file (data/themes/default.cfg), to change the position of menu items, for example.

There's also a "Classic" theme in preferences, which uses what I assume to be the pre-1.12 layout.
