  1. I think it would be awesome to incorporate more variation to weather and the environment to the game. Don't get me wrong, there are definitely weather events that can happen on maps right now. We have thunderstorms and snowstorms which are pretty awesome. What I think would be better is if these were enhanced a bit with the lighting and skybox to go with the weather events (no more blue sky cyclones). Additionally, I think night battles would be pretty cool too. The battle of Guadalcanal was fought almost completely at night. Currently, there is one map I believe that has a "night" environment Northern Lights... but let's be honest with the amount of light it might as well be the middle of the day. I took these pictures in port using the port mod Night Ocean... and I think it's a great example of the kind of lighting and environment effects that would make this game a little more diverse and challenging. I realize this probably isn't at the top of the list, but changing lighting and skyboxes doesn't seem like a huge lift compared to other things like... say... a commander rework.
  2. I'm a fan of camos. It makes ships in the game look authentic, different, and exciting. I could be completely wrong... but I could swear I remember there being more options for purchasing permanent camouflage for ships several years ago (I'm back after a long hiatus). This would be something I'd be very interested in bringing "back". I know I would pay up to a certain price to have cool historical camos. The ones below are from the Battle of Leyte Gulf event going on right now and I think they look awesome. I wish I could buy one of these to put on the ship of my choice and not lose after several battles. Is that something that other people would take advantage of? Surely it can't be a difficult thing to implement?

    Bring back the old equipment tab!

    My only disagreement with this statement is that there was an issue that meant it was the only way to do the redesign. On that screen, you notice that she ship is still live in the background only blurred out by this overlay. Whatever changes are made are still updated in real-time. I'm leaning towards this being simply a design idea to expand the space to emphasize the iconography and such. Unfortunately, it makes things worse. Then again, I'm a software engineer, not a game developer so it could be something I know nothing about.

    Bring back the old equipment tab!

    @Firewalk was there no way to include both in a side UI? It seems like if you double the height of the Exterior UI it would leave enough room. Honestly, I thought it was a mod when I first saw it. What would be sweet is a mod that basically changes it back lol.
  5. I just recently (a couple of months ago) started playing WoWs again after about 2 years off. There are a few things that really annoy me about the current game, most notably the HE spam meta that seems to plague higher tier games (I'd rather a CV than HE spam any day of the week). However, the ONE thing that is so simple and yet so frustrating is the fact that we now have an edge to edge equipment/upgrade tab that covers up your ship. I can't stand it. Why would you put this small group of configuration options into a full-screen UI?? Please, PLEASE bring back the old UI so I don't have to look at a massive blurred screen while selecting my upgrades and equipment. Am I alone in this? I mean, the Exterior tab still has the classic side UI.
