so i figured id post a link to this official thread about how people on the lodestone want the entire FFXI UI back in FFXIV.
i personally am against this, i do think visually the current UI doesnt really fit the FF series but the FFXI UI was absolutely horried and non user friendly to me.
this is my post defending my point
them: I absolutely loved FF 11 having the full focus at the bottom of the screen. When doing sky/Dyna etc it was vital to follow instructions from the LS Leader, so it makes sense that it is the focus point."
me: so you didnt use vent? in my endgame vent is required because reading takes focus away from the mobs.
also, whenever your camera angle is pointing forward the mob is always at the top of the screen, you are at about the middle of the screen, so everything is happening at the top and middle of your moniter..... wouldnt it make sense to have all of that also at the top of the screen so you dont have to look away from the action???? hence why it makes more sense to me to have the vital points of the ui up and out of the way of everything. again, vent is free and mics are dirt cheap, typing should be avoided during endgame.
them: "When doing sky/Dyna etc it was vital to follow instructions from the LS Leader, so it makes sense that it is the focus point. "
me: again there is no reasoning as to why having the chat log take up the entire BOTTOM of the screen... it just doesnt make any plausible sense to me! ventrilo people, ventrilo!
you all probably want a duplicate FFXI ui too so have fun bashing costumizing your own UI to how you want it, no lets pidgeon hold things that dont need to be.
