Which is the graphics file for the white square that highlights which unit is currently selected?

I'd been wondering whether the selected unit square might be improved by making it a bit more distinct, perhaps by giving it a silver or gold colour. I'm still rather undecided, but a silver colour stands out a bit more, without being as obtrusive as gold.

The silver stands out very nicely. I hope you do it!

Thanks

Sorry, I would answer this but it seems you already found it.

Well I am not really sure.

Almost certainly

All the on map UI is in Data/UI/Textures/Battle

List them as large thumbnails and they're all very obvious. Ignore the names. There's a lot of stuff hardcoded, so we have no control over naming and theres a couple of extraneous files we can't delete.

Could you upload these modified files ? (I made just an adaptation for unitwaypoint because I have not the adapted tools to work all these files, and yours seems interessant to use)

If this is directed at me, then I couldn't get the changes to appear in-game and the pictures are just edited screenshots.

Seems curious : in my original game (version 1.0), I have not the same images (yours are different) :shock:

Attached : what I see with the program "Xnview" (perhaps the difference are caused by effect of transparence function in these images : I tried to open with Gimp but it did not work)
