+1 for reverting character and skill UI ‘updates’ in this extended DT

I’d definitely prefer an opt-out of the new Character Sheet. I can see the objective appeal this may have especially for new coming players, but the compact nature of the original was very intuitive and screen economical, taking much less space to give more transparent information.

+1, yes please let us opt out of the new skill UI. I also greatly preferred the compactness of the old UI design. I could have it open while flying, but not with the new design. Takes up too much screen real estate. May I suggest that all new UI changes go through this rubric. If you cant fly with it open anymore, then it’s not a good design. Multi-tasking in eve is important. Usually one task is flying somewhere the other is everything else, because flying is so boring in some circumstances it’s a good time to get something else done. Time is of the essence.

Please revert that abomination of “new” skill UI.

The new skill UI is a big improvement if:

a) it could be resized.
b) If we could press shift + left mouse to select multiple skills AND then be able to drag more than one skill at a time. (love the bigger window to play with).
c) Skills browser should be much bigger than the empty space on the left if possible?

I hope this involves reverting the skill page.

I hope this all involves you all giving me your stuff so we don’t have to read your whining ever again.

Please bring back the OLD UI. Or give us the option of switching to the old 1.

I enjoy the new character sheet and skill uis, and hope you don’t revert back and instead continue to make improvements on them.

Sorry that we don’t all want to play rousing games of Excel. Change can be good, but it’s often painful in the beginning. Why don’t you give them the chance to make improvements, instead of knee-jerking?

If you say so. I’d rather CCP try new things, fail, and improve things than do nothing and let the game stagnate.

Change for the better is great! Change just for the sake of change is not. I fully approve of the change of the new skill plan system. However, I do not approve of UI’s that look like they were coded by a drunken toddler and are less useful and non-intuitive than what we already had.

That’s fair! I can’t fault your reasoning. Sometimes, though, you just gotta mix things up and see what comes up. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes bad. I prefer to let people take feedback and try to improve instead of immediately rolling back, but that’s a personal preference.
