  • [SUGGESTION] Control Group # Indicator

    Hi,

    I'd like to suggest a visual aid for control group management.
    I first observed this in Command & Conquer's Red Alert game, and I thought it would be quite helpful.
    Example:


    So doing some quick photoshop work I present to you guys some rough design:

    If you don't like the large numbers, we can reduce them to a smaller one. If you don't like it at all you can disable it.

    It is may also be possible to indicate the hotkey:
    Spoiler: 


    I think just having the hotkey instead would be better, I personally use numbers 1-6 for my control group.
    The position of the numbers can be placed anywhere, you guys can suggest an optimal position for it (bottom left/top right/over the HP bar etc.) if you want.

    What do you guys think?
Working...
