blota.description
     Blota started as a main menu replacement that was going to look like TheBlackParrot’s desktop. Since then, it has changed to look more like the Ubuntu desktop. Once we created the ‘top bar’, I thought about putting that over while you are playing. I did it, and TBP and I started to love it, so we expanded on it. So before you call it a ‘new desktop’ or ‘main menu replacement’, also say that it is more than that.



blota.features
  • blota.desktop
  • blota.bar
  •     The time (24 hour mode)
  •     Your name (you might forget, you know!)
  •     A status icon of your RTBC status. (Clickable to change)
  •     Number of players playing, and online in RTB Connect.
  •     We plan to add more, but that’s all there is for now.
  • blota.notifs
  • and more!



blota.planned_features
  • Custom backgrounds for the main menu.
  • General Blota Options
  •     Option to turn main menu replacement on/off
  •     Option to turn top bar on/off (per screen)
  • Notifications
  • blota.loadingGUI (improved loading gui)
  • blota.dash
  • and more!

Go on, compliment it; you know you want to...

the mockup ui is rather impressive. I look forward to this mod's completion.

expected dota ripoff, got main menu replacement

not sure if disappointed or relieved

this wont be just a main menu replacement.

If you're going to base it off Unity, make the notifications look better and use the Humans icon set.

i'm not basing the graphics completely off of unity.
and i'll find some better icons soon.
