I have removed some tooltips.

The red button is used as the button for main options all over the WUI. So, we should create something new to replace it. I have made a new graphic pics/but5.png for this with a quick hue shift. Would you have time to fine-tune the color for me? I would like to spend my time to give the Map Options some love face-smile.png

Use this branch to see the new button color in action.

Yes, i think so.... i'll try it over the weekend. Unfortunally on weekends i do have only one very old laptop to work with.

With my old laptop i couldn't run widelands, but downloading the pics for working could be made.

Screenshot time - Editor Map Options. The third tab will house the Suggested Teams, but it's still blank at the moment.

Map Options

The "Set Origin" button takes effect immediately because it's a tool, the other options will take effect after "OK" is clicked. Is this effectively communicated through the layout?

Wouldn't it make more sense to move the "Set Origin" button away from the map options into the tools menu? IIRC there has been some confusion about how it works. If it was in the tools menu, that should be clearer.

I do not think that we should provide a checkbox for "Official" because players can never make official maps. Slightly related: When a player saves an official map, the "Official" tag should be removed automatically. This ensures that official maps are always the same for all players.

Done and done. Now we need a graphic for the tool.

Tried a green button for wooden background:

From top to bottom:

  • Original red
  • Original Green
  • Your attempt
  • My attempt

If you want to try it, here's the but5.png: but5.png

Editors always seem to be confused about how the "Set Origin" button works. I think that it's better to move it from the options menu to the tool menu.

I have already movet the Set Origin button, but I haven't done screenshots yet. Still struggling with the Suggested Teams tab - I want to finish this before I make another set of screenshots.

@kaputtnik: Thanks for the graphic, I will give it a try.
