Looks far too modern for my taste, but still sorely needed.
Could you stop that hugely annoying stopwatch from popping up like a porn ad whenever I got to TC 1500, too? I hated that in SH4, and I hate it equally in SH5.

Excellent. Thank you, I needed a laugh. Never thought it'd be possible to squeeze that many cliches into one little cip.

The thread title clearly states 'digital' so yea, it's modern... It fits the UI theme perfectly fine imo. I will also release an analog clock in a few days so perhaps that fits you better (downside is it takes up way more space).

As far as your TC question, I'm basically not touching existing stuff, nor will I be fixing bugs at this point of time (I rather wait for patches). I will only create new stuff that's easily pluggable after patches (or can be reused by other modders). And I hope others can learn from these small minimods (how they are done).

That's my only interest

It's not the fact that it's digital, it's more the black-and-yellow colour scheme. Then again, it fits the rest of the UI, so an "older" one wouldn't fit in. So I can't complain.

ok

All the black/grey stuff is just reused from existing UI. I don't know why I chose yellow for the text, but full white was way to much in your face I guess. Anyway, anyone can change it with menu editor

Yeah, I was thinking more like a kind of wooden background and black letters or something. There's the glow, too, that makes it look really modern.

There'll probably be a full-blown mod out someday that changes the UI to a WWII-style top to bottom. Until then, it's okay .

I was really missing that digital clock from SHIV. It's one of those little things you don't realize you'll miss until they're gone.

Thank you skwas for bringing it back

Nice little mod thanks!

Sorry, I'm being rather thick here, but can you elaborate a bit on how to merge this mod so it doesn't interfere with others?

I have the "Less Annoying TAI map" and the "Player Guidance Icons Removed" mods already installed.
I backed these out through JGSME and then tried re-enabling with your digi-clock mod first up but no joy, as you've already said.

Any pointers would be welcome, I would really like to have the clock on screen all the time. I'm surprised it was missed off in development originally.

Thanks again.

Thanks, looks very nice, but i'll wait for your analog version.
Now, when i need to watch time, i'm actually don't experiencing any troubles to hit the shortcut key for my chronometer.
