      Classic UI Option Please

      I've been trying to get used to the new UI for several weeks now, after all the updates but I still find it inferior. I can't tell if an item is no sell until I go to the Bazaar. The picture of the cards on items is too small to see what they are. Incoming and outgoing healing is more confusing, taking time to work out which is which. Also to be honest I can do basic mathematics to workout the differences between gear stats and realistically the gear set bonus offers zero use to me. The only gear the set bonuses are on are items that I'm not likely to wear 2 or more items from. Overall it's a much simpler and more effective interface. I know in my heart you won't do it but please do.

      Re: Classic UI Option Please

      I agree. The item card icons are far too small, and if a piece of gear gives more than one of the same card, this is not displayed (For example, the Enchanted Armament Pet). KingsIsle has said that it would be difficult to change the UI, as the stats for Item Sets needs to be displayed.
      However, I think that they should put in the time and give us a classic option. After all, we never asked for a downgrade!

      They didn't say it would be difficult, they said it would be impossible due to compatibility issues caused by the addition of the set bonus page. They've stated multiple times that reverting back to the old UI is simply not an option, so I think we should just be looking for ways to improve the current one.

      One key factor is that all information must fit on screen at 800x600 resolution with the largest UI size, as that is the worst case usage scenario, so this is the compromise they came up with to make that happen since a handful of items went off screens of that size.

      It certainly isn't impossible. It's just that KI really wants to push this through, thus the level of effort to revert isn't worth it to them. Adding a classic option that completely ignores the stats changes and gear set as it was isn't that much to ask imo, because it did already exist.

      It appears there's a lot of negativity towards the new one here, but ultimately I think that's a good thing. As paying members, KI's development should be going towards what the majority of players enjoy working with not an arbitrary set of constraints put on by many workers who do not seem to even play this game.

      Re: Classic UI Option Please

      I am really not a fan of the new way, but at least they made changes to try to improve in this for us. I think it is a little better then how it was before..Not the old way, but when they first changed it.

      It seems that players are having trouble in reading the card for the most part. It would be a nice option to have it enlarged if we hover the curser over the card. I am sure this would help solve one issue that players are annoyed with.

      Re: Classic UI Option Please

      I am understanding that there will not be a classic option or going back to the old UI. As everyone has been vocal about the negatives of the UI I will not go into details about that. I am happy we got a compromise instead of being outright ignored. Yes the icons could be larger though that is my only negative at this point and time. I am still adjusting but I am kinda over the shock and now just working with what I have and remaining cautiously optimistic.

      This definitely seems to be one of the big complaints about the UI change. You are able right click on the item to get a full view of what the cards are and how many there are, so I don't really see this as an issue. I'm glad that they added icons for quick reference, but if you want more information it is there.

      I do agree that the gear stat changes are annoying and just make things more confusing, so I would like to see an option to turn that off at the very least.

      please bring back the classic UI KI. It's so annoying not knowing if something can be sold at bazaar or not. Where as i could see by hoovering before, come on give us the better option.

      I really like some of the UI updates and there are some I guess I will get use to in time. I believe there will be updates to fix all these many new UI issues.

      Perhaps it would be of benefit, to both KI and players, if KI would explain their long-term UI vision.
