With all the recent threads on the new UI, as well as a poll about it, I thought I'd throw in another suggestion.

Scaling UI.

Now, that horrid "W" game has it and I'd love to see something similar here.

Recently, my beloved 5 year old Dell Laptop died (yes, 5 years), but was originally designed for graphic design, so had a reasonable graphics card in it - I could get a res of 1900x1200 (something like that) combined with BlackBird Skin, looked awesome - but sadly, no more.

My new Laptop - an all singing, all dancing HD number - sadly only goes up to 1366x768. The game looks absolutely beautiful in HD with everything turned up to Very High - apart from the UI - which look looks awful, huge blocks that take up most of my screen - kinda destroys the beauty of the rest of the game.

What I'd like to see is a scale bar where you can set the size of your UI to a % - I'd probably drop mine down to 50% of original size.

Having had a quick scan of the UI forums, I can see that most people are asking for the UI to be bigger (for those with vision issues), but I'd like mine to be smaller! (perhaps I'm a minority!?)

Seeing as you are currently asking us, the players about your UI, I'd thought I'd throw this old bone back out there again.

Thoughts?

You had no replies as well...

Perhaps it's just us two, we are the minority!
