Please ccp
I want my interface back.
What is this *hit?
Is it really hard to give us option to stay on the same interface?

I'm sorry to say that I'm having serious problems with this new UI.

I have a somewhat bland visual color range verging on colour blindness and I can't see the edges of boxes and their contents anymore.


I absolutely need a way to make the windows fully opaque otherwise this is basically unplayable for me =/


Please tell me your going to add a color blindness mode or something?

I can't clearly see anymore in which area of the radial menu I am with my mouse. It used to light up pre-Rhea, now it does not anymore and the faint glow on the symbol is not enough to highlight the button properly.

My ridicule, heavy criticism and general pale outlook about your or CCP's ideas is nothing but an encouragement to prove me wrong. Give it a try.

Somewhat related:
With Blur on, I cannot set transparency high enough (Blur is too strong - the maximum setting hardly shows you anything below open windows).
With blur off: Transparency is too high - I can't find a setting which allows right click menus to be clear without windows being entirely opaque.

Could we have some sort of Blur slider which allows us to set windows as everything from
Maximum blur -------------- No blur at all (relying only on transparency setting)?

And the transparency setting would provide:
Fully opaque ---------------- Almost completely transparent.

That way everyone can find some combination they are can use / are happy with.

ORE skin is the only one that works for everything that I can see.

Sorry i haven't had much time to read these, but at least I'm in the right place. Please, "selected item" needs to stay off my seen without having to, lol...minimize it constantly. Multiple screens: my boxes and texts are the same size and yes I would like to be able to resize things for my smaller monitor. Now...the new UI. It's a love/hate! I'll get used to it, I'm sure. And there are more features; great! But let's please not make a habit of icon changes. Shocked

So, my feedback:

-New UI looks great.
-Transparency doesn't negatively impact readability, how did you do that??? Magic? P
-New color schemes work a lot better than the old slider-system. At least this way no one accidentally makes his UI unreadable.
-New symbols are a good upgrade to the others.

It will take me a bit to relearn which symbol represents what now since I've had the other ones for so long, but I can deal with it. At least the new symbols are overall more sensible than the old ones.

Current favourite on industry-alt: Ore
Current favourite on main: SOE

The Amarr and Gallente color schemes also work great, Coal is nice too and I can't stand the Minmatar-skins. But that's just personal taste! Big smile

Great update!

For anyone whining, simply turn blur off, transparency 0 and voila done, same old interface, with some modern icons.

Big plus for the match UI color to ship race thingy... It's really immersive!

Been around since the beginning.

IDK if it's known issue, but fix sensor overlay eye icon - whether overlay is shown or hidden icon is dark grey. Pls make it green again when sensor overlay is active. The same problem in 'places' tab in 'people & places' window - due to grey colour can't see if bookmarks are on or off.

Would like window blur to switch on and off when spinning camera same way like the transparency changes when you turn your camera.

Or flat out make it so that ingame brackets could be seen through the blur.

Not entirely sure how this got missed, but the icon on the neocom for the Ore Hold still has a colored picture of a veldspar roid.

Who is responsible for the new monochrome crossed-swords icon in war decs? You clearly need to learn that smaller and fainter is not good for icons. Roll

This icon is in every department inferior to the previous icon and ought to be abolished and replaced with the old icon. It is barely visible, it is pixelated, it is too small, it looks like food sticks. I hope I do not need to write a bug report for that... Roll

By the way: Why is it swords to begin with? We have no WIS, which means sword duels are not possible. A symbol of 2 ships exploding or blasters/launchers firing at each other could be more appropriate than medieval swords. You should take that opportunity and make a better EVE icon out of this and show some talent.

Another thing that I noticed is the Courier Contract icon. It shows a simple box. I think this should be exchanged with the Item Exchange contract's 2 arrows, or a box with the map icon combined, or something else that indicates traveling with cargo.

Wow, that is pretty impressive. Like they tried to fix something that wasn't broken? I totally agree the old icon in this case is 1000x better and more efficient at what it needed to do.

You make a valid argument about the war report icon and it has been brought to the icon designers attention.

Usually though, please do submit a bug report as they are easier to track than forum posts. Especially as you have pictures to support your argument.

Pretty sure this has already been suggested, but it's late and I've lost track of what I've read and not read.

Please make it so the Neocom button bar has the same transparency settings as the rest of the UI.

My eyes are getting old, and while I generally really quite like the new icons, I can barely see them, because of the transparent background of the Neocom (and their edges are fuzzy and faded).

Thanks!

GG

Edit: Also, can you fix it so modal windows don't turn the entire background dark/black? Also, quite often I find that after closing a modal window the darkness of everything else doesn't reset until I have some sort of session change.

The market and map icons look like they were based on the same graph?
