A cleaner UI

13 posts in this topic

It would be nice if we could optionally clean the screen of text and other ui.

The red boxes are UI + Buffs Its taking up a large portion of the screen. 

But add in text and large groups...

And it quickly starts to take over. There are worse examples than this.   You would never guess there is roughly 20 people in that 2nd picture. Thats how much the UI is covering up. 

 

So my suggestion would be the following

  • Move up the Map radar to the edge of the screen and condense + move the campaign scale directly underneath it. 
  • Option to Remove the durability UI
  • Option to remove the Bottom HP + Resource bars. Doing so will move the skill ui to it's place. 
  • Move the buffs to the bottom or top right corner of the screen. 
  • Option to hide chat while im combat.
  • Option to remove Friendly Buffs
  • Condense Party member UI
  • Option to remove party buffs.
  • Option to condense Personal buffs to Icons only
  • Option to remove server information.

All of which would turn

into

but significantly clearer and cleaner of course.

frankly the fly text and number changes compared to the older style is not improvement.

the faction shields are too large, as is the width of people's health bars above their heads.

we also used to be able to fully collapse the whole chat menu. dont get me started on its currently "new" default position that overlaps the group UI (for ages now)

p.s. teh leet pros play with no UI or weapons! :P

Remove buff visibility... really not needed.

 

I need the Buff visibility to see when my Amor of faith is running out,  to see my stacks of careless wisper and also to check if im burrowed or not. Also im like the place of the buffs

Remove status effect text... The giant INVULNERABLE STUNNED or SUPPRESSED. 

Instead of removing Replace the Text with a symbol or give it a better visual



At least dont say remove. Give us the chance to move the ui and let us hide stuff that we dont need

 

Also would like to have a system that hide the chat and non  combat related stuff, if u are in Combat mode

this isnt even a debate for "how do we do it?" they just do it and everythings fine

Targeting HUD is the main thing we need.

All we should see over people's heads is guild or faction crest and maybe their name, similar to Shadowbane.

If you want info like their health, debuffs, buffs, etc. that info should be displayed around the crosshair as a targeting HUD.

That way you don't get information overload on every single target. It'll probably help performance too.

with regards the UI, this is what i would set it up as: (with extremely cut back information above peoples heads)

The Buff could also only show the Icons and the names will pop up with an overlay

<Name>
<GUILD>
[buff][buff][buff][buff][buff][buff][buff][buff]
[buff][buff][buff][buff][buff][buff][buff][buff]
[buff][buff]

e.g. like this? [flytext areas for buff/debuff application. appears at tops, rolls down and decreases in size and vanishes after a few seconds]
