    The UI has not been majorly overhauled.

    It got retextured -- carbon fiber instead of bloody stripes woooo -- and has a few extra options.

    Functionally it's exactly the same and still bad. And it still loads a map file in the background.

    Intuitiveness is still close to zero. The there are two separate rows of "tabs" and you never know where any given option is going to be. It is a constant search around the screen to figure out where you need to be clicking next. Related and commonly-used things are almost hidden because you expect them to be easier to find.

    • Put in a tournament mode
    • Classic flak and roxgrenade trajectory
    • Classic "switch to previous weapon" after using translocator
    • Make duel less pointless. IE make it use the survival mutator by default and deal with demoguy STILL showing up in this gametype whenever someone gets swapped out.
    • Classic method of rocket delivery. Primary for rox, secondary for grenade. Hold down button to load up multiple rox/grenades.
    And that's it! If they did these things then for me personally the game would be better then ut2004 and just as good as ut99. Epic have really narrowed my list down. I honestly found myself scratching my head to find more things to whine about. This is the first time i've found it hard to find things to whine about.
    Previously my list would have included stuff like "MOAR MAPS PLZ" but the titan pack has dealt with that. Also "BOTS ARE TOO HAXXOR FOR 120% GAMESPEED BUT MY BRAIN ONLY OPERATES AT 90% EFFICIENCY! LOLO" Looks like epic dealt with this one with the latest patch.
    And "WHERE THE **** IS FACE????" Well epic dealt with that early on.
    And i applaud epic for FINALLY adding screenshots for the BP1 levels :lol:

    This game is only a few steps away from perfection in my eyes.
    And once it gets to that point, there are other things that could be done to make the game beyond perfect (But they aren't too important right now, this is the nitpicky stuff):
    • Revamp the UI even more
    • More factions and characters (Xan, malcom, gorge, brock all essential)
    • More variety in the environments. (Not as bad as ut2004, but hell, more diversity required anyway. Titan pack has sort of fixed this)
    • Fix up map descriptions so that there are no references to the war WHATSOEVER
    • The screenshot for darkmatch has a Ued interface artifact in the lower left corner. It would be nice to get rid of this artifact.

    If we had the classic rox, how would we fire three rockets in a line, grenades, AND a spiral? The current system works well in my opinion, but I guess I've just gotten used to it. But that's not to say I'm against adding a mutator that replaces with the classic firing method. They did that in UT2KX so why not here?

    Epic isn't going to remove the war or any reference to it, so just give up on that already. I'm sure a map description mentioning the Necris war really ruins the game for you.

    Uh, a lot more than that has happened. Lots of unnecessary screens were removed- e.g. the Press any key screen, the login screen doesnt even come up at all anymore if you have save password checked, and some other prompts and such are gone too. All of these things were annoyances and getting rid of them . And I don't know what oyu're talking about two rows of tabs (I dont know of any screen with two rows of tabs) and it's always abundantly clear to me what i need to click on to get what I need.

    I seriously want my demoguy back :[ It was easier to see people ;0

    It does for me, and I agree with T2A, the UI overhaul wasn't major.
