Hehe..here's a question, since it seems we've run out of things to talk about game wise. Which civ has the coolest looking interface by looking at the screenshots. I'd have the say the Naboo have a pretty sleek interface. The Galactic Empire interface looks plain and boring with cables connecting each part. I think as far as inteface its 1. Naboo, 2. Gungan, 3. Trade Federation, 4. Wookies, 5. REbel Alliance, and 6. Empire.

I wonder if its not too late to change the interface for the Galactic Empire...i was hoping for something more dark and menacing...that interface looks like something you'd expect to find on a Sega Genesis.

The Gungun interface does seem to suit that civ perfectly. I also like the TF.

I like the naboos the best. It just seems to flow and has good colors and everything.

1.Naboo cause of the highly detailed buildings.
2.Wookies cause of the cool architectural styles.
3.Gungan because of their underwater buildings and their wierd organic looking buildings:amidala: :chewie:

i always dislike interfaces that draw my attention away from what's happening on-screen.. that's why i prefer the Empire-interface so far..

Well i'm sure u wouldn't be happy if the buildings look like lumps of Rancor droppings.

The interfaces in age of kings were detailed and stuff..especially the Koreans and Chinese interfaces. Did those draw your attention away? With so much stuff happening on screen in an RTS game, how can you be distracted by interface???:confused:

They did a real good job with the Naboo interface, it looks sweet..like you behind the controls of a N-1!

the age of kings has elaborate interfaces. Especially the Koreans and Chinese. Did you get distracted by those? With so much stuff happening on screen in an RTS game how can you get distracted by the interface?

They did an awesome job with the Naboo interface..makes you feel like you are behind the controls of an N-1 almost!:D

Naboo may look nice and buetiful, but once the meet up with the Empire it won't look pretty anymore:D
Personally I think the wookies or Empire will have the coolest buildings and things.

I really never noticed the interface backgrounds in AOK. I have no idea wht they look like. And i never gave them a second look in GB until you mentioned it. It won't be distracting Leon, you hardly even notice it IMO.

I'm with tie guy and darth maul.
With all the intricate detail on the buildings, it never distracted me. Are u just trying 2 find a way 2 say this game is bad

I'm sure the Empire will defile the beauty of the Naboo, but the question was who had the coolest interface...you know with nice designs, colors and such..I know the Empire will be able to kick their butts cuz the designers prolly had to make up like 80% of the Naboo army and they prolly just made units to fill each caste and move on.

That is why they balance the game so the civs will be equal....

Naboo interface is growing on me.

They'll balance the civ's but i dont think a lot of imagination will be put into the Naboo units. Seems like few people are overly excited about them.

Admiral Odin

Well I'm interested in seeing what they are doing for the Naboo.

Empire:

I think it looks fine. There should be the imperial logo somewhere though. I dont like the empty squares are the far left menu.

Rebels:
http://www.galacticbattles.com/multimedia/screenshots/15.jpg
I think there should also be a Rebel logo. I like the x-wing like decal at the far left menu (where you see the units options).
I dont like the empty squares are the far left menu, needs to be worked on a bit.

Wookies:
http://www.galacticbattles.com/multimedia/screenshots/9.jpg
I think there should be more wood textures. But I guess it looks fine

Gungans:
http://www.galacticbattles.com/multimedia/screenshots/18.jpg
Now this is the best. It captures the gungan technology very well. Looks organic but not too much. Nice curves here and there.

Trade Federation:
http://www.galacticbattles.com/multimedia/screenshots/3.jpg
Uses the yellow-ish colors used by most of the TF units. Very nice

Naboo (allmost didn't remember these guys ARE in the game):
http://www.galacticbattles.com/multimedia/screenshots/20.jpg
I like the golden like parts. Shows off how much they have of an ego. :)

But remember guys, some of these screenshots also have old art of the units. (like BIG foot units and small mech) So there is a possibility some of them have changed completly, or just a bit.

i like the gungan interface best :) Just looks new and interesting :)

Me too;) The Gungans finally have a reason for their existance....

I think the Empire could use a more sinister interface.

Unless we're looking at different screenshots, i don't see an x-wing decal anywhere, especially not on the far left.

I think everyone agrees that the Gungan and Naboo have really nice eye candy for interfaces...everyone seems pleased with the Galactic Empire interface as well, but i was hoping for someting like black metalic look...like darth vaders helmet. With glowing red icons and buttons like Darth Vaders Lightsabre!! That woulda looked cool and you're right..they have changed a lot so maybe they'll see this post and make that change?:rolleyes:

by x-wing decal I mean the red stripes on the wings. The decals of the x-wing are at the far left of the interface.

I noticed that too...looks kinda cool, but i expected to see orange and white in the rebel interface, like the color of the rebel pilot uniforms.

I also thought the wookie interface could use some work...its kinda patterned after that long thing that wraps around Chewies shoulder..i felt it could be made with like metal and wood designs.
