“Saved Locations in XXX”
My menu now has half as much space as it did before for showing bookmarks (3, instead of 7), forcing me to either scroll through a (Possibly) very long list, or resize the window.
Why is the title bar 1.3cm thick??? The average user is running 1920x1080, we don’t need a super thick black bar to tell us “Hey this is your inventory”. The compact mode doesn’t even help because you can no longer access other ships/hangers/containers with compact mode active. I used to have 3 full rows of images (because I’m crazy and use the icons inventory filter) and now I only have two. That’s 1/3rd missing information requiring me to change the window size.
The compact mode actually saves this one, we don’t need more empty space, let us condense menus without losing information.
With the changes to the sizing, all of my tabs now overlay each other. I have half the M blurred out on “Combat” before getting “Ta” of “Target”. Why are they all arbitrarily bigger now?
What benefit does any of this give us? I have been running the game at 90% scaling for three years, waiting for the day when CCP grants us 80% or lower scaling. The game already had the option to increase scaling above 100% for those who needed it, but with the UI changes, I am forced to rescale all my windows, leaving me with, what 30% of my screen not covered by menus I need to have open 24/7?
The change in text font and clarity I enjoy, as well as the smaller changes, but disrupting my muscle memory and how much visible space I have left on my monitor isn’t worth running the new UI for, I think either giving us more useful compact options (Such as one for the Overview? A better one for Inventory that doesn’t fully remove Hangers/Containers) would be how to fix this. Because I don’t needhalf of my saved locations window to be saying “SAVED LOCATIONS” at me, I already know it’s there.
