being back from vaccation and being forced to use this new GUI since 3 days by now, following problems have come up :
Size of these clickable icons is far to small, it creates eye strain and headache after 1 to 1.5 hours of gameplay.
Taking part in fleets which need longer, or more hours to play on an evening or weekend, becomes impossible.
I did not put 350 € into the game to prolong my account during halloween offers to have the game made impossible to play because of a new GUI I cannot deactivate.
I am speaking here NOT of not liking this (which is true, of course) but of health issues.
These clickable icons are far to large … reduce them in size, make them the size of the old GUI.
Question to CCP:
Why the heck having the icons in “Selected Items” window so much smaller, but having this so much increase in size? Where is the logic in this? In the old which was far better to play they were at least somewhere equally in size, at least in my opinion.
After updating my computer last sunday my whole overview was gone, empty. Even importing old exported settings did not work.
After testing around I found out: in “Tab Name” the field length was limited to about 15 chars, and so my old overview of “<fontsize=13>MAIN” (simple HTML tags) did not work anymore and I had to rebuild it.
Come on CCP lads … this is just bad, destroying peoples self-made overview by reducing the field size for this in the database?
Also the vertical spacing here just sucks … but you devs failed to correct the spacing since the introduction of the new skill window .
As I doubt that you are incompetence to reduce the spacing I have to assume you (devs? CCP? Management ? ) do not want to reduce / remove the spacing , but why? Making this to some bad excuse tablet / handy game?
I don’t know but for the past (skill window) I just accepted it, filled it up and never locked into it again.
But now, with the whole game giving me eye strain and headache I get to the ponit that playing something else which does not affect my health would be more suited for me.
Give me a button in Game Settings to deactivate the player station dock, it causes to much lacks on my side and since that new docking area was implemented I do not dock inside player stations anymore (except sometimes Tranquility Tower for trading).
fortunately there is a “compact mode” to reduce all the oversized icons. So, i used the game options to set “compact mode” as default for all windows, and then switched only the hangars back to “oversized” to see the used m³
This workaround unfotunately doesn’t help anything with the totally messed up colors & transparencies.
That one’s a New Map specific thing. I would say that the old map does a better job here. The red is just as dark, but you don’t have distracting and interrupting background elements which interfere with the data display as much.
