I consider feature requests only if i you can name proper valid reasons i can agree on. It is my unpaid time i'm putting into this project, i'm not here to cater to every Joe's desires.

Progress Update to 2.4 (#7)

You hear this? This is the sound of progress my friends.

Okay, i know this was shamelessly stolen from Team Fortress and i also know most of you don't even know what a Team Fortress is, so lets get this post done ok?

I spend a few hours the last few days to start redoing the group info panel as well the appearance floater, you know, those being absolutely horrible and broken since ages, those you had so many problems with.

First i started with the appearance floater, moving stuff around, creating a base layout for everything and trying several others on the way, the final outcome is this for now.


As you may or may not notice, the search bar is gone and is now replaced by a button that will slide the search bar in (and the name out) in case you are really so desperate that you need to search your outfits, other than that the whole appearance floater looks pretty straight forward, you can create new outfits with the + button, edit a selected one with the wrench button and of course save and save as, trash or wear it with the bottom buttons, nothing new here, just a huge cleanup.

Today i spend some hours on making the base group panel look similarly structured like the appearance and people panel is.


I think it's pretty obvious isn't it? The similarity in their core layout is... really obvious, but the main panel is not enough, the content panels (General, Roles etc) need a lot of work, they just look horrible, i never touched them because they worked fine but looked like horrible shit which i never cared about (and honestly i still don't care about groups, it's not the focus of my Viewer) but tjey are in need for some tweaking regardless.



It's still a bit in progress and those other 3 tabs (and their sub tabs) aren't even touched yet. So there's still quite a lot to do but in the end it will be worth it i guess.

  1. Looks like 2.4'll be epic UI update.

  2. This kind of attention to detail and an "eye" for what needs fixing and how is why I will continue to use BD. Most folks seeing this stuff would just have that vague feeling that something was a bit "off" but not see what needed fixed or how to do it.

    LL should just fucking hire you - but they probably couldnt afford your rates :)

    1. I would be happy with surprisingly small rates.
