    I think he means he wants the game interface changed. This means he wants like the frames and such, the things showing the inventory, time, unit queue, icon, portriat and minimap. I have two protoss interfaces currently--A gold one and the traditional one. I'll be happy to skin some interface for you as long as you abide to what I would consider a sane map. Not some ripped n00b-made map, but something with quality and detail.

    If anyone has played Extreme AoS (i think) or some other map, I will submit my war zone map which is kind of bugged and up for grabs, it has the interface. You can also dl it here--Just look under Killst4r's skins

    List the type of user interface you want in the requests forum.

    REMEMBER - ONLY add them if its NECESSARY. Don't JUST ADD THEM to make your map " awesome " or " nice " because thats just pathetic. It will cluster your map's space and is not necessary in MOST cases. ONLY DO SO IF ITS really necessary!

    Well, make they take up alot of space so the quality should be reduced and the interface may not be too detailed as they take up alot of space (I have tried skinning them and trying them out)

    If he doesn't want his interface to be crappy, yes. Just lower resolution to the images. But, the average interface is 600 kb; the shrunken will be like 200. Still, be careful

    The last tip is that reducing the quality of the .blp may affect your game because you may not like the reduced quality. Remember, if your going to put alot of details and still don't want to lose the quality, try reducing the map size with map tools.
