Here is the third part of the Project Blue (sounds very incognito) GUI Mod released by FahRes.
This third installment changes the generic race GUI items such as the Grid Select button and Ship Info handlers.
Changelog:


  • New Selection-SOD (192 Polys)
  • Changed Race-Icons
  • New moving Cross
  • New Shipinfo-Icons
  • Blue Font colours
  • Bugfix for Project Blue: Level 2


The Grid Select button handler is cool. Shaped like, well a cross between a Circular Saw Blade and a circular wind vein (I actually forget the shape's name), it certainly is a departure from the stock Grid Select. The Race icons are also different as they appear to have a chrome effect which is better than the plain white stock ones. Ship info icons are also changed, with similar chrome effect done to them (the shield icon looks like an Anti-Virus logo icon). All-in-all it's a nice little package from FahRes'.

Note: Level 1 and 2 are not required for this but would be a good thing to have to match these.

I'm not a modder, and I understand that this is harder than it looks. Thank you for responding.
