Ironically this might get locked too, not sure.

But either way, in case you guys have never posted feedback to the forums before or just don't know how CCP works you need to post anything you have to say about the release in THIS THREAD

ANY OTHER THREADS IN GD WILL BE LOCKED

That and I think it'd be worth nothing that "bad icons are bad" doesn't help anyone. You need to spell out to the devs specific icons that have issues and in which contexts there might be problems. For instance I've seen that they look terrible at 90% UI scaling, that's a legitimate concern, tell them that.

Stop making new threads dammit.

Just in case the ISDs throw the bones and the fate of this thread is to be sacrificed upon the altar of Lockthor, Bringer of Thread Death, Apocolyptic Demon of Patch Day, please calm yourselves with the gentle melody provided by this Cartoon Mad Scientist/Pharmacist as he is controlled by a Secret Agent Platypus into dropping some sick beats at the table.




Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

Why would you want scales all over your UI to begin with?

Limited screen size is the usual reason. People playing on 1024x768 for example. I personally think they should dump that POS but I can't do it for them...

You mean like all the constructive criticism they got in the threadnaught from the last attempt, AND the Dev-created thread on the Test Server forum? Here for the new one. Lots of player time was spent giving specific constructive criticism. The ONLY thing they changed was to 'fix' the pac-man stargate...sorta.

I didn't say the devs had to use it :P

Just that that format is the most helpful if they do :D

Overview icons = EVE's new theme song.

Drone / ship item icons = washed out and probably the next thing on the AUR market, along with colourful Neocom buttons.
Following on after the lack luster and silly camoflage, default ship skins. Evil

CCP - Building ant hills and magnifying glasses for fat kids

Not even once

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

And also managed to complain about one of the new features outside of the designated thread without getting locked.
Tricky.
I wonder what the minimum number of paragraphs to misdirect an ISD is.
