    The history of mankind is a history of migrations. Be it for food, wealth, climate, wars or whatever. I think building walls, creating a 'us vs them' culture is kinda shortsighted. For sure it may have positive short-terms implications, from a strictly economic point of view. But we are expanding so rapidly, and our influence on our habitat is so dramatic, that we should start to think more in perspective, and as a "whole". OR, we could stop making children, realize we are fucked up anyway and walk hand in hand towards extinction, but that's a bit unpopular.

    MD Screen on big monitor

    Oh but MD needed this and quite badly. I am happy people give me feedback on the interface, i qm just not happy that i can't satisfy everyones taste with it To make it clear , without flashless interface MD would have permanently died in just a couple of months, making it impossible to migrate later. Flash support is being dropped by all browsers permanently, and is already disabled by default. Without a wider interface we would have been stuck in a pre 2000 style design, unable to add anything new and usefull to it. Without mobile friendly responsive, interface MD already paid a drastic price losing more than 70% of its audience. Without more space for tools and interface, the tools wpuld have been difficult to use, and they are md's future in what the gameplay is, and what things are being created for its players, by its players. All this made this new interface absolutely mandatory, and i am saying this for years, i just intervened now before it would have been too late. If this stagnates soon, it is already something anyone else would have taken many months of work to accomplish as it is now, and thats no overestimation. I don't afford to hire a couple designers to make a look everyone would like, and a coder to code it, and me alone this is what could do, Chew does his part as well, thats it, Period. I was hoping to get constructive observations, not the feeling that i disturbed you by creating something absolutely unavoidable, that you think its just my passing mood.

    worldly inertia or profane fluidity? like this negative vp makes more sense, because its not a form of debt, or anything monetary related, but more like when you get entangled in everyday financial concerns, its the feeling, not the value, you get my point? creatures you dont "pay" to recruit, as they are not mercenaries, they get bound to your soul as avatars to represent parts of who you are in a fight.

    I have a wild thought...vp (value points) is clearly at a concept at conflict with other things refering to trade/monetary value , such as coins. Vp is not really behaving like monetary value at all, you can't use it for trading, and it doesn't have a rarity based value...it is more like vitality but more static, nothing like a resource. How about renaming it and giving it a different perspective to better reflect its behaviour? We have heat, thats obvious, vitality, that is decision influenced (think of why i say that), and..vp..that is a sort of anchor into the material, .a ...."worldly inertia" or .."profane fluidity" ..i like both but the first better. Does it make sense what i mean? Like this i could integrate with new game sections and give better use for vp..and i could put ve and "vp" at same level of display importance in the interface. Or is it a change too difficult to accept after so many years and acustomed concepts?

    You would probably grow a greater economy accepting those trying to enter your country and helping them integrate than demonising them.

    MD Screen on big monitor

    Mur, take it as a sign of love for another interface you designed. Undying love, even. @peeps: two days ago I met an angry VorniC at GoE (scene still on flash); the scene didn't load for him and he was on phone. He was like 'nothing works, why isn't MD focusing on fixing these things'. I told him to come back in a week I, too, found only one viable browser that supported flash on mobile and I don't know if it's still available. It's not like Mur woke up one morning and decided to f*** up MD and upset a bunch of players...so instead of complaining, try to say something like 'This looks great, but could you perhaps...'. I, for one, think more about stuff like quests and some other things that need our attention. There's a lot of work to be done.

    My inbox is not your trash bin, my patience is not an invitation to waste my time and creativity is not same thing with madness. I can be kind and friendly or a totaly cruel asshole, it depends only on you.

    Here I do present that which I did render, aided by an artist who were not human. I entitle it "Rime's Repent" - one may recognise of the scene elsewise; the sunrise doth bring of frostbreak upon the well-trodden path.

    MD Screen on big monitor

    You people complain that the elements are not centered but then complain why the edge panels are so far away when they are. Word by word what you are asking is the old interface, (that is still available under old-layout.php btw) Screens of that size are wide for a reason, otherwise they would have made them vertical not horizontal. Why would i try to fit everything central and on vertical when there is so much space horizontally? Are you sure its about not liking the new layout and not actually about not liking change in md in general? I am sorry, maybe later i will do other layouts md fully suports variable layout..but now ita just crazy to do what you ask when entire design moves in the opposite direction, i am actually sad i can't make something you all like. Ps. Fang, mallos was showing me the wings in the scene, i asked him for that scene screen..so your comment made no sense

    You make changes as big as this, be prepared for complaints, I don't even think anyone here is complaining, I think they're just pointing out some issues as you instructed them to do. Nobody even asked that you change the interface, you did it on your own volition because of your one of your newfound motivation bursts. This will stagnate again soon, guaranteed. Personally, I don't like the interface change and I don't think this is the kind of change that is MD needs right now.
