The updated UI project has been moving forward nicely and I've started to solicit feedback from a few folks on some of the general patterns and design elements as we continue to work through adding functionality.

We've now got pretty much all netting functionality (build, cash, explore, tech, both markets, gov change etc) hooked up in a workable state. It's been fun to play turns on the new UI -- the mobile experience is said to be a stark improvement over the current mobile UI.

I've also got Google account auth hooked up and will be working on Facebook and Twitter auth integrations as well so that it's one less barrier to entry for new players (and much easier for all of our current players to log in).

Over the next little while, we'll look at completing functionality so that the new look and feel has feature parity with the current game site and do a wider beta with more users.

I'll post some more screenshots later on, but I figured it had been a while since I posted anything and there might be some curiosity.

We're all looking forward to delivering a much better gaming experience in EE and bringing the UI out of 1995 and into 2018!

Cheers,
Dave

as long as we still have the option to play under the current UI I hope this goes along quite well specifically for mobile use but for desktop I prefer the current standard as I don't want to think how chrome will react with 72 tabs open under new GUI.

I'm also curious about the use case for 72 tabs

We'll opt people into the new UI by default but I don't think we're planning to sunset the old stuff either. But I'm way more likely to develop new and interesting things on the new UI's ecosystem than the old one :p

What about setting Spy on SPY ? That is to say you, click on Spy what is the first thing your going to do on Spy? Why I have to waste time hitting a drop down menu to go Spy sucks. Its a ox-moron set up right now.

for when you are a breaker in war, you can have your tabs set to drop down with each calculated break and have several tabs in between for readiness, and then a few more at the end for finishing target....or I would assume

If you have never used 72 tabs or more and played FFA you are doing it all wrong

16 breakers, 16 mid breaks, 16 readiness, 16 finish then have 8-16 more tabs with chems set just incase.
