Was this game always meant to end up with us all having UI's that are so complex that it would confuse space shuttle pilots? It might just be me, but when I cheer as Auto-Grant gives me more passive abilities, and mutter under my breath to see the words "when activated" because it is requesting a certain amount of real estate on a screen/hotbar that is already groaning under the weight of what it carries, I think we need a change. I cannot, for the life of me, imagine what the button clicking will look like as you add more AAs to be activated. I would have thought we were at our saturation point long before now, and to look at people's SS of their setups I cannot imagine how they cope with tracking it all. Is our future even more buttons to cram into as yet found free real estate? More hotbars? Perhaps, as a suggestion to cut back on a bit of the frenzied hummingbird on the buttons thing, is to have future AA ranks of an ability make an active AA become a passive one, where it just fires off without the player's action (as an example, /autoskill kick has been one of my favourite things ever). Just a thought to address the complexity of the latter stages of the game, but I would love to hear other (likely better) offerings Many websites offer custom UIs that provide us with nigh-innumerable ways that this game could be experienced. The UI is our window to this game, and the experience in starting a new character makes me wonder how any of us got to level 2. Perhaps it is time for a bit of modernization and hopefully making it sleeker to rid us of some of the more egregious dead spaces that exist on our screens (the bugbear of the chat windows giving a double header comes to mind) so more people do not feel the need to download from outside sources. What functionality from custom UIs should be included in the default EQ UI? For me I would love some toggle switches that permits a certain amount of customization. Some toggles I would turn on would be: Show Spell Name Show Buff Name Stickmen Graphics On (to cut down lag) p.s. While you're at it, maybe pay Brewall and Goods Maps a royalty or something and have that be included by default (with an option to turn it on/off for those EQcartographers out there). p.p.s. Perhaps GINA could get some royalties too, since it is all but a requirement to raid in this game. p.p.s.s. Would it be possible for items like Mod Rods and the Clicky Reflect Anguish Mask thing to send me a tell when they are ready to be clicked or removed?
