So I have the following commands for my game and was wondering what order they should go in for the command menu.
  • Move
  • Attack
  • Guard
  • Skills
  • Spells
  • Passives
  • Items
  • End Turn
Also, do you guys think it would be alright to omit "Passives"? It's really just there so the player can check out the Passive abilities their character has while in combat. Even if I take "Passives" out, there would still be 7 commands, which is quite a bit. Any suggestions? Skills and Spells are separated cuz Disarm seals "Skills" while Silence seals "Spells". I also can't remove "End Turn" since the turn order doesn't move on to the next unit until "End Turn" is selected.

how about adding Skills, Spells, and Passive inside another command
Code:
> Move
> Attack
> Guard
> Special -> Skills
          -> Spells
          -> Passive
> Items
> End Turn

If the command menu is also from Top to bottom (or single file horizontal) like listed here then it is fine.

Ommiting passives is fine in my opinion aslong as I have time outside of battle to check those and really important ones are clearly readible by enemy/character-type.

Example : you have a character with flying as a passive I can tell from looking at the character that this would logically be the case. Etc.

Oh yea, nesting them would do the trick. I just have to figure out how now lol. The only other alternative I had in mind was making some kind of radial icon wheel thingy like in Moghunter's plugin. Though I'd have no idea how to integrate that into LTBS lol. The same goes for nesting it.

I'd definitely remove Passives in battle.
I also prefer to have Skills/Spells above Guard/Defend, as Guard/Defend is less useful.
I'm also not sure why you can't have Skills & Spells in the same command mixed in. The Disgaea games do that without any problems.

Hey @Pharonix, just wondering what you're up to lately and if you've had an opportunity to check out the LTBS thread in the past few days...(a couple of us could really use your expertise). Hope you are well and Happy Thanksgiving!
Anyone know the best size image to put in signature?
