Why is the UI just getting bigger and bigger...?

Discussion in 'General Gameplay' started by DafuqYouLookinAt, Mar 25, 2020.

?

Do you like these UI changes?

  1. No. It's enormous, bulky & dark.

  3. Meh, kinda. I think we should be able to toggle between old/new & change menu size/transparency.

    Just why?

    Ever since the release of it, it just seems to be becoming less & less fitting for PC gaming and it's gaming audience playing.

    Edit: Everything is becoming more spaced out & widened as well. I miss my old inventory/gear layout.

    I mean, the new UI was originally designed for console wasn't it? Destined to be shared across all platforms...?
    For whatever reason...

    Can we seriously not revert back to the previous one or even the original UI?
    If perhaps I missed something, please let me know I'd like to not have this version or at least "adjust it" to my liking.
    If not, we should absolutely be given that option.


    What're your thoughts?

    They literally made a BIG change to UI by adding BIG menus and icons then they spread out all the icons/texts to fit all it's BIGNESS.

    I hate it so much, always have. (-__-"
    PC with console design? It just never made sense to me.

    I think they spend more time to new UI than character balance. They're changing all every patch, even with this, scroll bars doesn't work how it should.

    I hate it too, this streamline design with console so we get the same UI, whats so hard to give PC Users a good looking UI which does not cover so much of the screen. Even better would be an option to have a minimalistic transparent UI.

    Im so glad i went from 1080p to 1440p 3 months ago, cause on 1080p the UI is really unbearable, covers up too much of the screen.

    It's not lazy a design.It's actually really thoughtful of them. They know we are getting older and our vision worsens so by upping t he size, they ensure we don't have issues.
    - probably some ambassador :)

    It wouldn't be such a massive problem if text would rasterize properly when the UI is scaled down. But even at 99% the text starts getting more and more unreadable so the whole UI scaling feature is worthless.

    I'm in between with determining whether their intentions were positive or negative.

    Either way, myself and many others since the release of the new UI think that the design is way to large. It takes up quite a lot of space on the screen.
    It really isn't a design that seems to be friendly for PC users considering it's a "shared" design across all platforms.
    Idk any other game that has shared design but if you know one, you make it known.

    Sure, it's nice in some parts but not completely and we've been asking for toggle features or revert features for a long time.
    I admire your positivity but not every complaint is just to complain if thats how you may perceive people who speak of the UI.
    I can't tell if you're trolling or trying to be cute n supportive for the design fully.
    There's many solutions and suggestions that could in fact better improve the design in attempt to satisfy many people.

    It's not exactly thoughtful to push a change that doesn't really belong for a specific platform nor is it to not allow options for players to customize it better, especially given the options we already currently have to do so with.

    The UI is ok but the fonts size is beyond retarded: it's basically like reading HardOCP these days. There have the same fonts alignment and it sucks.


    God bless Intel and Kyle Bennett!


    PS: big sorry for ya son kyle :/

    Is there a way to change it? The last UI were undesirable changes were bearable, but the inventory screen that I spend all my time looking at looks like it was designed by a five year old.

    I wish I could. But my 64" Plasma (164cm) only displays 1080p. The new trashcan symbol now is as big as my fist....

    No, I mean, literally as big as my fist...

    New UI is not that bad, but too big, they need to make it smaller and remove unused gaps there.

    It's bulky, huge and just ugly. I can barely stand to use it long enough to sell fish and throw the game back in the tray again. Annoyance with this terrible UI update is *largely* why I've all but stopped playing. Trying to use it on a small screen is extra torment where everything stacks in half-assed broken layers even if you do shrink it to the point you can hardly read it. Just a mess. They need to do what's been suggested a thousand times, make it customizable and EVERYTHING should be able to hide/show. Whoever made the popups can just spill hot coffee in their lap daily too, thx.
