    Icon4 The New UI...if I had done it

    So, after about 12 hours straight of PvP-ing to get my warlock's gear back up to par, I was like..hey...I haven't looked at Free Realms in ...12 hours...

    As many of you may have noticed, they had some fun with the [C]haracter equip and [J]ob selection screen. I know I'm not happy. It doesn't seem...logical. I know they're trying to make it simpler to use by putting everything in one place, but it was honestly fine the way it was. I'm not sure many people actually had a question about how to change their job or equip their character with the items they own.

    I made this.
    Please be aware that it is heavily photoshopped and I'm not entirely sure it could or would ever be used for a real UI. Just about everything on the screen was from a separate screenshot. ( I know the map shows I'm in the water, I was too lazy to change this).

    To be clear...

    this entire screenshot is fabricated and fictional.

    Unless SOE decides this looks nice enough to use, you will never hit C and see this.

    I decided to put this in suggestions, since I would be pretty happy if the equip screen looked something like this...I think...


    Enjoy




    While I don't like changing my job in my equip screen (or by the arrows up top..same thing, right?), I came to the conclusion it would still be alright if the choice were present to do so. You know, alternative means of changing your job. Like. How. It. Was.
    Just because I want to change my job does not mean that I want to change my gear.
    Notice the confirmation boxes at the bottom? That'd be nice, too, instead of it switching the job each time the arrows were pushed.

    I'm running with this thing open.
    No, I can't really do this right now, but I like to auto-run and equip things at the same time. What's so wrong about this? This should happen!

    All the selection slots are neatly arranged on the side instead of flipping through all of them (5 at a time per screen) or having to go between two pages (regular clothes/weapons and jewelry/shards, as it was before).

    On the top left, I took the stats screen from the "About Me" page where it shows how many levels you've gained and other miscellaneous information. Don't be alarmed, adventurers didn't get health, energy, or defense. I took this while I was a ninja to show why I wanted this box in this menu. The information is actually related to your gear (for now). To have it in the other menu is a little confusing and somewhat awkward. If it were this way, you would be able to immediately see the changes to your stats.




    I still want the old job screen back, it was less stressful and/or frustrating.

    I love that UI. I wish they designed it like that.

    You know, send it. Aaron Esko sent a suggestion letter, and he got a reply.

    Maybe when this thread hits a good prime number of replies or something.
    I saw that post, but if I were to make a suggestion to SOE about free realms UI elements and features, it would be ...pretty long. I'm not going to lie, it's a little klunky.
    ...And I know they're not quite as limited as EQ regarding their development resources...


    Unless someone wanted to do it for me **hint hint**
    It's not like anyone else could claim they did it

    FINE. I did it. But I'm not sure it made any sense. I've been awake a while.

    Amazing UI design! I would trade the old one for this any day!

    Not interested in trading anymore. Everything's so expensive...
