The new Main Screen look

In President Infinity, the Main Screen in 2.0.4 will have a bit of a different look.

main_screen_regions_creating_hud

There are a few differences (extending the color bars for each player, making the up-down buttons for players more intuitive, moving the flag image, removing the ‘Step’ information at the bottom), but the most obvious one is the addition of a regional creation HUD on the right side.

This HUD displays information on regional items being created – so, Ballot, Targeting, Org. Strength, Footsoldiers, and Polling – and so makes it easier to keep track of what you’re creating and where.
