It looks fine to me. I don't see any reason to want to change it.

No, I don't have a grudge against you, but you seen to have one against me. Take this thread for example. Three people said "no" and then I said "no" you jumped all on top of me: "Oh! So you would rather see little girly battles between villagers and clubman?" "If you want, i can start another poll asking if you would rather see small early fights, or large, advanced, diverse assults? I think more people will vote YEA on that"

I would especially like this thread to die (joking )

Actually...I like how the map rotates when you rotate the camera...

I also like how it tells you what you army is mainly composed of...and what units would counter them...ECT...

I would like the little icon for the fire giant to change...it’s a big eye sore and it looks too much like Hades off of Disney’s Hercules...


At my signal unleash HELL.

The interface is pretty cool...although I don't think those tabs for your military units are really needed. I generally know what my armies are composed of, since I'm making them, and it's quicker to hit a button to get your selected army than moving your mouse up there to click on a tab.

The interface is good how it is.

But: I don´t like that the mini map is rotating, I think that confuses u...

It won't confuse you, it helps you. Did you see the movie with the interface and the battle? Did you see how it rotated around the units? Well, if you rotating around the units and the mini-map stays the same, that will confuse you.

EE has a rotating camera but no rotating minimap, which drives me mad. I twirl the camera around, push forward (according to the minimap) to view the battle at my base, and end up at my enemy's corner of the map.

Not all old men in ragged coats are bad old men; some are bone-and-bottle men, and have little dogs of their own, some are gardeners, and a few, a very few, are wizards prowling around on a holiday looking for something to do.

I wouldn't be worried about the cursor...AoK used AoE's cursor for awhile during development. It will change.

I've never had a problem with a ES games's interface. Therefore, i know it will be good. Making this a non issue.

WE know that virtually everything in the game will be good.
So why do we even have a forum????
So we can discuss about what we think it should be like, suggest stuff, come up with ideas!

The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference.
The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference.
The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference.
And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.

I got no problem with you bringing this up. It's hard to talk about something where have virtualy nothing to go on besides past performance. The past preformance of the inferface was great and we have no signs that the interface will be any different. So, IMO it's a non factor. How is saying that negative?

The ONLY little, tiny, almost invisible, small, thing I don't like a bit is where on the bottom of the interface in the center it has this sort of rise like this /^\ . That's not needed, and if it's taken away it shows more of the map (a good thing).
