Hey OL'ers,

Would it be a good idea to have a subforum where we can discuss the client itself?
IMO the client itself is a different topic than the actual game itself and deserves it's own subforum to discuss it =)
This might also give the developers of the client a better overview what the players want and what they think about the client!
Maybe it'll also encourage players to post client-specific suggestions =D

What do you think about this?

I would love to see a whole new HUD instead of the current outdated design.
it feels the current HUD is just build up 95% out of codes and 5% of design.

I could come up with a concept in Photoshop, if someone is interested in making a pretty HUD :)

I rather like the visual organisation of the client. However, I appreciate that what suits me, may not suit someone else. Rather than encouraging developers to implement a specific new design, might it not be better to create some kind of configuration layer to the interface that would enable the design to be changed without resorting to code ?

I guess, this might take the form of a text file that would affect the placement, size, colour, look and behaviour of the various widgets and labels, as well changing textures, fonts and titles.

@scarr - i'd still be very interested to see your proposed design. As a very experienced player, and someone with a good eye for graphics, your ideas are likely to be very valid.

Anyway, before letting the topic go to a specific part of the client, there's lots more to the client so again; I think it's a good idea to start a subforum about it and start discussing it =)

Learner has already mentioned there is no need to vote on such a thing. He is already planning on doing it... he just hasn't got there yet.
