Proposed Interface Changes yay or nay?

Postby iSylver » Thu Jun 09, 2011 3:00 pm

Hey guys,

Myself and Finito have had a discussion regarding the current interface and its expandability. We started discussing the current item belt option.

Essentially we want to combine the magic/item belts and offer more "bars" or options in the toggle window (page up page down).

Essentially means you will be able to place any item within the quick use slot and it also means you can organise your spells and items however you like.

For example:
Dragon breath could be on the f2 slot where your hp potions could be on f8. This also means these "quick slots" would allow you to create metaphorical shortcuts to items perfect for when wanting to switch items for hunting such as int/str etc. Or in a pvp case the ability to switch a weapon.

A quick mockup and design is attached so you get what i'm waffling on about.

Would need a new client rolling out something that we're working on at the moment :).

Good to hear it. Glad to see the smiley face too. Gives off the vibe your happy with how things are going and your making some progress (I hope lol).

Would maybe be a good idea if you keep giving updates like this as much as possible... Keeps people reading and interested.

We shall try, Finito is the man on the client on the moment i'm working on backend web stuff recently.

Makes it easier for the admins essentially.

I.e. We have an administration section whre you type in a character and it will bring information through such as last logins/linked account/other characters/deleted characters and most importantly allows us to restore characters very easily.

Might be an idea to embed the client videos directly in a post somewhere, most people don't seem to be aware of the progress on the client, certainly no one is taking about the progress made on the forums.
