About this mod

Mod to disable Contextual Window and Common Command Bar in Command and Conquer 3 (version 1.09)

Permissions and credits
CNC3 User Interface Mod - removes contextual window and common command bar. For advanced CNC players who know shortcut keys and want to maximize their viewing area and minimize redundant distractions.

Since the replacement of Dune2 with CNC1, a number of UI features were made redundant - in particular repetitive display of unit health in contextual panel

Many of these redundant features were reintroduced by EA in order to;

"... add a healthy dose of accessibility and ease of use based on the lessons we've learned with our more recent games. The end result is an in-game UI that is approachable, intuitive, and easy to use for the novice RTS gamer... Since Generals, we've been through two more generations of in-game UI and learned even more about how to make great RTS controls, especially about how to build an RTS UI that is intuitive, accessible, and easy to use ... it consists of a traditional C&C side bar interface with the contextual information and object-level control of the Generals UI... The design seems to be living up to its potential in terms of flexibility, power, and accessibility.";

See RBBUIMod History in the readme.txt for my opinion on the motivations for and consequences of the re-introduction of contextual panels.
