New All Planets page
« on: September 26, 2011, 04:58:21 PM »
Don't care for the look or the fact I now have to tab through what I used to be able to see on one page. The graphics with this new look appear very cheap and hard to look at with the white divider lines between each section.

It sort of reminds me of my earliest days in programming. The old look served the purpose. This one will not be used.

Anyone agree/disagree?

No matter what BFG changes, that benefits even 99% of the players, someone will always have a problem with it.

The changes are awesome BFG, thank you :)

I am still trying to understand the benefits of tabbing compared to viewing all on one page.

When we did a mock-up of a single page with all of the new information it was information overload. It was so much stuff on one page that you couldn't effectively understand any of it.

I can understand that. Perhaps adding one or two tabs to access the new information would have sufficed. Also one might ask if the new information was really needed since it is available elsewhere.

Basically I used the All Planet page to track what was going on without showing activity on certain planets under attack. Also i could see what tasks were being performed on all planets without going to each one.

I suppose I will get used to tabbing to get the information I used to see on one page. I am sure others will find it useful. I personally do not. But that's the way the cookie crumbles. LOL

There is more information on one page,rather than jumping around. Overall I like it, and if it looks cheesy to some (not me) someone will eventually write a script that will make it look cool for you.
One in our ally said would be nice if it had a totals tab for rez, ships, mine output for all planets, but...

If you could see things from my point of view, and I could see things from your point of view, maybe, JUST MAYBE, some dear angel would come along and pull BOTH our heads out of our Arses.

Thank you BFG for listening and being open to suggestion. I like the tabs, but would, however, like to see one thing changed that I think will appease everyone. Could you combine the 'ships' tab and the 'tasks' tab and have it occur first? I think anyone who is having a problem with the new page is missing the fact that they used to be able to see all their ships, and what they were doing, all on one page. I love the fact that you can tab to the resources, mines and defenses.

I like it alot...  Only thing I would add is a default selection, so you can select which tab you want to see first or the ability to rearrange the tabs in any specific order, but think the default tab selection would be easier to implement...

Other then that, well done...

After working with the new All Planet tab views, I think the best additional option would be to bring back the old condense view as the default load page, and to get the details of your empire use the tabs....
