In my opinion the GUI need to give much more information about the battlefield. Currently, It feels not like a RTS-Commander.
Alien-players can see which upgrades are online. Khammanders cant. Why? Sometimes, if a evolutionchamber get sniped by marines, the khammanders dont note that until someone says in voice "khammander,we have lost xxx-upgrade". To search and check all evolutionchambers all 3 minutes on minimap is not a solution :>. Just display all researched evolutions on screen.
Upgrades in research needs a progress bar.
I want a permanent list of all marines or alien-players on my screen (for me on right side) with informations about Playername, HP/Armor, Ammo/Energy, Location, Status( like "in fight" "following order" "respawning" etc. ), Weapon/Lifeform, Equipment/Evolutions, an icon if the player says something in voice(or the playerbar is highlighting), an icon if a player yells for "need ammo/medpack/order".
This list can be sorted. For example : press and hold STRG, choose Player 1,4,5 and press "1". They are now optical separated from other players in the list. And there is now a shortcut on "1" to select all this players and a shortcut-button on screen near those players in list .
The same List for all buildings(some frequently buildings like cysts are combined) with extra informations like "no Energy/Cystlink"(maybe higlighted in red colour) "is upgrading/evolving" etc.. This buildinglist is invisible until u are pressing a specifiec button(because thats to much on screen ).
New Colors for minimap is badly needed. I dont know why a cyst, when its fresh builded, glows RED on the minimap. Red indicates danger/damage.
Special buildings need different STRONGER colors. Letz say for example all Whips are deep blue, all Harvesters are White, all evolutionchambers are yellow etc.
The infestation indicates the alien-territory. Currently its yellow on yellow :/ . Yellow for infestation is fine. The minimap backgroundcolor needs a neutral color like grey for both commanders! Marine buildings create a own territorycircle on the minimap in blue.
Buildings with no energy/cystlinks must be marked on minimap. Permanent changing the color between yellow-grey(aliens) or blue-grey(marines) until the territory is retaken(or lost)
Thats it. Sry for my bad english :/ .
The Commander can give Medpacks, Ammo, nanoshield by just selecting the equipment and then clicking the marine on playerlist. Supporting marines will work much faster now and the accuracy is 100 %(no more faildrops). Maybe thats OP i dunno . Need to be prove
