That menu poll has been there for ages and I remember someone saying that the code was already there. What about the graphics?
1) Didn't someone say he'd make them?
2) What exactly do we need?
3) Can't we use those of Ufo AI for now so the menu works? That would make it easier for artists to see how the menu system works and they only had to replace the existing stuff (making question 2 pointless).
I agree with spirit, we should have graphic menu, it's important for new players, especially beginners. Atm when sb new download this game, and even doesn's see menus, he think it's some broken/unfinished version and quits it.
