29-08-2013 New Interface System Fixes

Recommended Posts

While we've unfortunately had to delay the launch of the new Members Loyalty Programme and Solomon's General Store update, we still have some new content for you to get your teeth into.

We've been continuing with the improvements to the New Interface System from your feedback and a number of those are now live along with various bug fixes.

  • An option to allow click through chat boxes
  • Access to the function keys (F1 to F8) for custom keybinds
  • Reintroduction and slight revamp of the old split private chat system
  • More compact interface layouts due to:
    • Improved spacing in list style interfaces (such as your inventory or ability lists)
    • Reduced border sizes
    • More border transparency options

    [*]We've also now made it possible to position many of the interfaces without the need to enter edit mode.

These improvements are ongoing and your feedback is incredibly valuable to us in helping shape the direction of the New Interface System. Please continue to let us know what you think and thank you to everyone who has given their feedback so far. To submit your feedback, visit the NIS forums.

We apologise again for the delay with the Members Loyalty Programme changes, and hope to have these with you with next week's game update.

The Battle of Lumbridge - Week 6

 

Free players and members

With the Sixth week of the world event comes a new set of changes and additions to the fight:

  • Saradomin's forces have voted for the chance to spawn an additional special unit, giving them twice the number of champions on the battlefield. The Zamorakian forces have voted to increase the effects of their special units by 50% making the healing effect of their champion more powerful.
  • Both factions will be able to vote on new reinforcements to the battlefield. They can choose between the mighty siege units, powerful creatures that bombard the battlefield to destroy the enemy; or elite units, mighty warriors with a chance to stun the enemy in an area around them.
  • Members will be able to vote on what war beasts will guard Lumbridge. They can choose between the brave and loyal guard dogs, terrifying and deadly spiders, or they can decide to give the rats a chance and train them for war.

Gf overpowered overworld magic, though maybe in dg it will work properly.

It seems when I click through the tabs to change between "all" and "clan" it makes me move instead.

Just not helpful when trying to keep track of different chats like friends and clan.

When I hit 'Tab' (or even click a person's name in the friends list), it doesn't show the person to whom I am replying to, but instead as a message to public chat. I'm sure they'll fix it but it's really hard to see how they missed a simple oversight like that!

why would people even vote to make a healing effect 100 instead of 50 instead of having more champions so it's easier to get to one

 

oh well, more manhorses to murder for me

It's actually only 75, and yes Zam voters have had their heads on backwards the whole time. Hopefully we'll actually vote for the Elite units this week.

These NIS upgrades are rather ruined by the obvious flaws.

 

The new border is nice...but it now make inventory 5 a line at size that matches the 8 button menu which is annoying.

Split priv is cool..but you can't tell when you are in priv or not and it doesnt exit after u send a message

Click thru chat is cool...but feels a bit odd when u still can't click thru other transparent things AND scrolling chat with mouse wheel does game world zoom too.

If you're voting with winning in mind (not that Zam will win anyway) it makes sense to vote against extra champions, since they're basically just bags of divine tears ripe for the picking.

It may also affect the siege units or elite units we get after the current vote. If it does, it'll be useful.

 

Anyway, looks like a list of good fixes.

The click through chatbox is one of the best parts of this update/fix. I'm happy just with that.

I'd just like to mention that I hate the Zamorakian side's choice. Why on earth would they vote for healing effects? Freaking really? The special units' chance to double-spawn would've been better for gathering tears and frags. How could they have chosen such a stupid option collectively? Like, why? >_>' Death doesn't even have a freaking penalty, you don't need food while killing units. JUST WHHHHHHHHHHHHYYYY

 

Click thru chat is cool...but feels a bit odd when u still can't click thru other transparent things AND scrolling chat with mouse wheel does game world zoom too.

 

You wouldn't want a click-through inventory interface. There too many important things in all of those submenus that if it were click through, you'd have soooooo many dead clicks at important times. As for the scrolling game zoom, why not just lock it?

I think the Zamorakian vote was less of "we want healing effects" and more of "we dont want more champions on the battlefield". Right now champions are one of the major divine tear + contribution sources for people doing combat and, like Peronix said last page, it will benefit Zamorak overall if less and less divine tear pinatas were being spawned to supply the Saradominist hordes with contribution. It wont cause him to win the battle, but it will shift the balance somewhat.

 

So, in fact, the Zamorakians were being collectively smarter than us Saradominists :P one of the problems of being the more popular group, I guess.

 

 

I have no idea which of the two new Reinforcement choices would be smarter contribution-wise. Probably the Siege Units as they'd make the enemy's skillers really miffed.

Bear in mind that both sides voted against siege units the first time. :twss:

You're right, I failed to consider that people were thinking tactically. I'm being a bit selfish in thinking I just want more opportunities to take pictures of the special units. They're so hard to get good screenies of. :(

 

I finally got to log on and play with the new updates.
