I play on a 40" HD TV, this is how the new UI is looking for me.

So what we now have is Targets fixed in the top right hand side with a max of 6 per row. (these will now appear under your overview too!) Location fixed at the top left, Status/modules fixed in the middle bottom and ofc, the ship in the screen centre. This leaves me somewhat lost for space to put everything else.... any chance of a new targets display? Atleast make it moveable/configurable!

I hope you crazy people at CCP are somewhat sympathetic to my issue here. Shocked

Having targets come up obscured by the overview/anything else i want top right is somewhat horrible. Make the targets display movable + configurable and all will be well \o/

Ps. Don't see any need for the new and annoyingly-big fleet interface either, the old one was fine... but thats not so important..

This is still work in progress. Expect to see rapid changes on Singularity :)

Hah, i'm going to be checking back every day now! Very Happy

Allowing greater control of the UI setup is going to make some people (Including me) VERY happy! (Spent far too much of my time with an active WoW account installing mods and faffing with the UI)

Who's that idiot who're designed this new blind interface?

It is just unusable.

You realize not many patches ago they made those lines longer? And now you want them shorter?

New interface sucks, simple as that. I want the old one back, at least overview with locked targets and all unchanged.

the interface look the same except you can move stuff around say if you left handed you can change all the window manually to the other side cant see what else they dont to it apart from the cool item and ship thingy in the station services panel and the little hidey thing on every window and the ability to see your overveiw by adding thr background tot he window and WTF a coffee cup holder in a gallente shuttle @.@

to help you locate targets on screen. Pointless? majority of the time yes, although i must admit i have used them absent mindedly before. Perhaps an option to turn them off? I rather like them...

-Old- -New-
The new UI takes up more space for the same tasks. (this highlights the targets needing to be movable issue)
You now need to move several windows to decrease the overview area in order to increase the drone space.. it's abit more fiddly.
Heh, as much as I disliked having everything jammed onto the right hand side overview, it atleast allowed the UI designers to make sure nothing overlapped and there was a reasonable amount of space to display everything.

Huh? You people don't like the independently movable and sizable windows? I thought that's what everybody had been wanting for ages.

Man what a lot of unhappy beta testers. The whole point of SiSi is to give back positive suggestions, the Devs listen to feedback here...this game is their pride and joy, no need to insult them when something doesn't look right....just point it out :P

(edit: most of you guys are cool...just the few that act like this is a final product I can't quite understand...)

Oh, but there is more you know. You're not in a gang on that screenie. And the gang/fleet/wing window is also floating freely around in space.

If I could "anchor" all these windows, give them a fixed position, I guess it could work. Then it would be up to each player to configure the whole thing the way he/she wanted.

And this might be a good thing, afterall we have different monitors and such. Not for all to play around with the best of the best of gaming rigs.

I remember when Exodus hit us with new GUI and all, new overview and icons. It looked scary at first, but after a while it all turned out to be better than before and we got used to it, and liked it.

We have allways asked for some sort of induvidual config of the GUI, this may be it Very Happy

But atm on Sisi, it sucks Cool

The locked target icons that are on the top of the screen should be center aligned instead of left aligned.

Also, the item + ship UI when you dock in the station (if you have them merged) is somehow broken. no idea how.

Anyone can see anything behind this "interface"?

If yes - You're so lucky... I cannot...

I know you do, i was just poking at the fact CCP actually 'improved' or 'fixed' them not long ago because they were too short (on large screens). I think they should be an option, or removed, but CCP must not.
