A Comprehensive Look at the Update | QoL Suggestion & Fixes

Recommended Posts

After a comprehensive look at the update I've got a couple of changes and fixes that I'd like to suggest for QoL. Input and opinion is appreciated, will probably have other ideas too!

Excuse my shit paint skills.

1. I really like the new map overview, I think it would be cool if you could nominate a map for the next vote from this screen. On both the completed and uncompleted map sections:

2. Map Overview and Player Info shouldn't be two pages, one combined one would be far better and more efficient.

3. Rank progress bar should be at the top of the ranks page as well as/rather than on the player information page; you shouldn't have to flick between the two to see your progress.

4. Inventory system search management is frustrating to use, if you search for something the search options feel clunky and complicated, it needs to be more sleek in my opinion, furthermore; it is a problem when I search for an item and then use the search to sell something; it resets and I have research. Make it stay on the search page and place a reset button in a corner.

5. No MP5 in the weapon search box

6. Rarity filter in an odd and counter-intuitive order. Make it go from grey to gold/yellow.

7. Leaderboards should have numbers on the rankings, it's hard to tell where you actually place when looking at them.

8. Personal opinon, no one uses the challenge page and it shouldn't have it's own area. Either should be removed or placed in something like player information.

9. Use the complete/uncompleted section on the map votes in order to give people a better understanding of the maps they have and haven't done so that they can more actively pursue completing every map.

Edit: Strike through things have been done, italics are not being done due to UI updates later in the year.

I really appreciate the feedback.

I will put some page consolidation for the new F1 menu on my to-do list, I think you are right about that one.

As for the Inventory stuff, there is a planned re-write of the entire UI this year, so while I understand it's frustrating to use, at the moment there's no incentive to fix it considering it's going to be thrown out and re-done in the near future.

And I really like your idea for the changes to the map voting UI, again this is something I will look at implementing, not just for Timer based game modes, but others can utilize the ability to show extra information on the voting screen.

And yeah, there should be a number on the leaderboards, a bit of an oversight from myself.

Thanks! 🙂

Ah that's cool then for the inventory stuff, one other small adjustment I've thought of for JUST the bhop/surf servers is making the spectator icon bigger when 'changing team' as there's only one team. It's hiding in the corner a little but and the big space looks out of place imo. Or could move the 'play bunny hop' placement more central.

Looks awesome Zero! I'd edited OP to show what's been done and what won't be done.

I've played a bit of Surf, and noticed the CP UI is in an uncomfortable placement with how bold it is. My suggestion would be either making the background transparent, or moving it to a different position, for example here:

The transparent background would be ideal in my opinion, though.

 

The bonus leaderboard doesn't show records:

The UI for when a run is completed is top right, I think that and CP UI should be in the same place. I do like the bottom left idea; looks clean.

Really appreciate the feedback, I will look at further improving the HUD in Timer Engine 4.1, which is expected in early May
