GUI overlay

Updated: Jun 25, 2019

Hello, everyone!


One of the important parts in games is the main (and additional) GUI overlay because you, as a player, interact with them most of the time. It is your main tool. In Maritime Law, it isn’t the exception. These elements must be convenient, intuitively understandable and good looking as you would use them a lot of time.


You can see on the picture below that we did our best to put all this in. Through these panels, you would lead the ship by utilizing our new order system. As a captain, giving order is one of the main ways of interacting with crew and ship, you know, all these shout commands you usually hear in the pirate movies like “Full sail ahead!” or “Gun crews, at the ready!”. Another role of the overlay is to provide you with supplementary information, which you will use in the navigation and decision making like the state of wind, weather, ship condition, crew, date, time of day and the state of supplies. Last but not least, is the bar showing you the notifications regarding important events, threats and state changes happening on your ship like mutinous crew members, declining ship parts or upcoming storm. Notifications would help you stay in control of your ships life as there is always something happening during sailing.


Except for the calm⚓️. However, when people during the calm going mad anything may happen. Like our posts and share feedback with us. Arrgh! See Ya Chum...🖐
