Worst spot ever. I guess Mac users should get used to the OS X Dock getting in the way of Eve. I can't wait to start clicking on stuff in OS X when I'm trying to click on stuff in Eve.

I hope this is all work in progress... because:

A) I want the 'menu' neocom at the TOP of my screen. Or maybe I want it VERTICAL. Please, if you say customization, then please let us choose where we want to place the menu bar. Shouldn't be that difficult!

B) Why a neocom only? Why can't we place buttons on any place we want on the screen? If you rework the UI then don't get halfway stuck but go the full way!

C) Let us save/load layouts and if you really want to be cool, then make them in-game items! Also make them available to share in the corp/alliance. When you can do it with ship-layouts you can do it with UI-layouts as well.

D) Good that the UI gets love! Yay!

I would like it if you somehow managed to FORCE monitor sellers to sell 4:3 monitors again or at least 16:10. There is NOT enough v-space on the new widescreen monitors to accustom a horizontal 'menu' bar that is eating up the rare v-space we have left.

Wait, what's that little button/icon to the top left of the guns? The one with the infinity symbol?

"We already have plenty of ideas for iterations beyond the BETA, such as allowing alignment to any side of the screen"

or maybe people could stop complaining and read it all and notice they are complaining over a non existing problem? O,o

Please, please allow us to make it vertical and bind to whatever border we want. Some people still have 4:3 screens where's bottom "start" button and horizontal strip is okay (soooo win'95!), but more and more people are getting 16:10, 16:9 and even multi-screen setups where most of the horizontal strip would be just a waste of precious screen estate. Vertical menus are JUST FINE right now, please, don't break them.

Personally I think it looks awful. I don't know what would be better but I hate the look of this.

Well played CCP. Looks like it will be a welcome improvement.

Sexy and functional UI is always appreciated.

New one is basically Win7 taskbar while the old one is like win xp.

If you are going to move it down. It better be like KDE's taskbar so it doesnt take space from the overview.

I like it. I agree that it should be able to bind horizontal and vertical though.

2 things:
Thanks for doing the beta thing on TQ. I like that I won't have to load up sisi to try some of the new features.

Please make an ability to NOT group similar neocom buttons (show info windows and the like). I turn that option off in windows and I'd like to be able to do it in game too. I happen to like being able to point and click once to get to the window I know is right there instead of having to go through a point click point click process of silliness.

Thanks!

THANK. YOU.

Looks very nice. Yes, it's basically a windows taskbar. But that's completely welcome over what we have now. Cool that we get to play with the Beta on TQ instead of having to wait for it to cycle through SiSi testing.

Looks like an improvement, definately like the idea of beta testing non destructive features on TQ.

Giving Eve Online a Windows-esque Start Menu?

Fan-frickin'-tastic!

EDIT: I'd like to add a suggestion for the menus. It would be nice if we could add icons that open certain windows to a pre-determined tab. For example, being able to set up an icon to your market orders immediately without having to go to Wallet --> Orders or Market --> Orders would be quite convenient. It'd be interesting to see how people setup their icons this way as it would give some insight into how people play Eve Online!

When you are already fiddling with the UI, I very much would like an option to select regular windows font and sizes to improve readability, especially on high-resolution Screens!

Seeing how the "plenty of ideas" are generally implemented from 6 months to 2 years after the initial development complaining about how bad is having only the horizontal version and not a vertical one before the new feature is implement is important.

I would very much appreciate it if you would take window's theme settings as a default, and then allow ingame customization after that.

I want:

Open and minimizing windows from the taskbar just like Windows. (so my cursor can stay in one place to open/close different windows just to check stuff)

An option to disable the "sliding effects" because I want a very snappy UI with no unnecessary delays.

Performance is a priority over eye-candy, I don't mind if it looks SIMPLE, but please make it a fast and snappy UI.

Customizable fonts. (or at least font sizes on everything)



And while you are at it:

please make the "current location" information movable.

please make the countdown bar of someone jamming you movable.

please allow us to turn on the bracket of our own ship. it's particularly useful when you zoom out.

that is all, for now.

I like the idea of utilizing the UI research that Microsoft did when they developed the task bar for Windows 7. It seems like you're trying to learn a lot from that. I really like the idea of open windows having spots on the NEOCom and even grouping them. Nice on ya.

The one suggestion I have for the start menu thing, is to put a section for most accessed sections, just like in Windows 7. However, I think Windows 7 got one thing wrong. They put the most accessed programs at the top of the start menu, forcing you to use more mouse travel distance to get to the programs that you use most often. It makes more sense to give you access to the things you use most with the least amount of mouse travel distance possible (put the most used at the bottom of the list close to the start button).

All in all, I like it, and I like the idea of giving us options to test out Beta features. You should provide a better feedback system than posting in the forums however. Just give us a simple form interface in the game asking people for feedback on beta features.
