Are you one for a clean UI and simple menu or do you need dialogs with critical information at hand all the time. Time to weigh in on this new topic.

What you have now in the way of UI feels about right to me...……

I quite like what is there at the moment. Yet, I voted for tons of panels, as I quite like how 4K monitors are becoming a commodity, and how W10 offers desktop scaling in an easy to use manner.

Edit: In other words: Why not?

I invested on an ultrawide Samsung 34" 3440x1440 monitor a while ago, I had a double HD set-up previously. No going back, so nice to have everything on one screen.

Windows 10 desktop scaling does quite a spiffy work, too. At first I reverted to 125% scaling, but lately I've moved to 100% as-is view. Email and stuff I need to zoom-up a bit, but most games work very nicely there, without things getting too small.

Those new UI screenshots on the other thread look were very nice, I am quite looking towards the new Southern Storm experience. With the new monitor, even

I like the current UI except for all the clunkiness of which I have criticised here before. It's good but it needs a huge amount of polish to be faster and easier to use. A wargame doesn't have to mean the UI is terrible to use or unintuitive but it seems to be a standard of the niche. I voted for the last option.

Searry, what would you do to fix the "clunkiness" of the current UI?

Sorry, I cannot really elaborate better now since I have gotten used to it. If I recall, one problem was the inverted map scrolling which I found out was an option. So user error.

I'm late to the party but I would have taken 2 (a few information panels)

I'd like to add that I don't enjoy drag and drop deployment; would rather 'left click select, right click deploy'.
