I know that one of the biggest issues many of you have with EQ is not tied to hacking, cheating or even zone stability. It is that unforgiving UI that EQ has always had. I know that many of you have asked for a user defined or customizable UI, I understand your headaches.
The UI in EQ has evolved over years and years, with multiple hands touching it along the way. I would love to say that the original system was planned out and made for a very streamlined custom UI support tool, but as many of you already know, that simply isn’t the case.
Since UI is such a subjective topic it makes it difficult for substantial progress to be made on the Dev side. I know that there are many of you that have a “solution” for some of the larger UI lingering issues. I am talking to the community people at SOE to see if there is any way to have a focused discussion/ submission regarding specific UI areas in the game.
Tackling the entire UI as a project is extremely time and resource intensive. Maybe a better way of approaching it is one area at a time? What do you as the players think?
