After spending the vast majority of the day updating, I've launched TSW to see just what has changed. The thing that has jumped out at me is the new UI, and just how hideous and unfriendly it is. The old DLC selection screen needed improving, however this new one is slow, clunky and doesn't help you to find things. The addition of the driver avatar serves no purpose than to be annoying and pop in around a second after everything else. A simple tile layout would have made things so much more user friendly. Grouped together by countries. The colours of the UI are a mish-mash. Some stuff is the new yellow / orange. Some stuff is the old blue. And some stuff is green. My toddler shows more colour coordination. The weird colour gradients on the buttons and menus reminds me of when I first discovered WordArt, which I believe was the early 2000's. Back then gradients were cool, but now no-one uses them, and for good reason. Most websites and games now use solid blocks of colour, it makes it look much more stylish. Hiding the return to main menu option on the start menu is also odd (and it causes the game to dump for me). The entire start menu is quite garish in design and just not pleasant to the eye at all. The old UI could definitely have been improved, but what we have here is a significant, significant step backwards. The UI is the first thing a new player sees, and having it presentable and easy to navigate is really important.
