UI Skinning update in book 10
From the Turbine forums, but this time with my own special sauce!
This is a quick update for those users that like to skin their UIs.
The UI Skin ArtAssetIDs have been expanded. We'll be releasing another 400 or so art assets that can be replaced, bringing the total to around 650. After this, about 90% of the game will be skinnable.
The corresponding UI Skin Art Pack will be around 5mb with all the new assets.
The movement / resizing dictionary will be filled out. Instead of just modifying the layout of the toolbar, you'll be able to tweak the layout of any of about 250 panels and widgets.
There are still a few things we don't allow you to skin: maps, icons, and some progress bars - new tech needs to be written to allow these to be replaced. It is something we want to do in a future release.
Ok, there was no special sauce.
