    The quote below is the one I am most intrigued with.

    But I am wondering, will this give us the option to play multiple characters from the same account? Or will I still need to have a 2nd account in order to use the multiple windows?

    Or am I mis-interpreting the "multiple windows" thing totally and it's in reference to the chat logs?

    It says "log windows" so I assume chat log.

    They mean the chat windows so you can do

    one For Tells/Parties etcetera and another for the battle etcetera, I believe.

    This.

    Basically, think of two separate log windows, each with their own independent set of chat filters. Say, one log for battle info, one for everything else (a/k/a the current default XIV setup).

    Seriously, someone with PhotoShop skillz just needs to make a mock-up of the XIV interface on XI, to hold people over until Vana'fest.

    I can't wait to see the UI changes.
    This is exciting!

    I like the idea of updating the UI and making things customizable. It doesn't sound like we're going to lose the "feel"
    of the current UI, and that means a lot to me. I would like adjustments, but not a wholesale change. The support of mods and add-ons is very welcome. That's a very refreshing change in attitude.

    One question I have is about the 3rd macro line. I wonder how that's going to be accessed using a controller. CTRL and ALT macros have their own shoulder buttons, but unless SE adds shoulder trigger functionality I'm not sure where I'll be able to map the 3rd line. I know it's an optional addition to the UI, but I wonder if they've thought about this.

    Yeah, I didn't imagine them that way, but since they are fondling about with the macro-feature that much, I was thinking if they could do even more with it.

    As for the XIV-esque thing, yeah, ever since they first mentioned little tid-bits about the UI-tweaks, and even more so after the new movement schemes, I have been thinking of XIV, so in that regard I am not surprised about these changes. Really the only thing I did not expect is this part: “The window scheme and GUI scripts for FFXI will be released so users can design their own interface features.”

    I had a feeling they could, but not that they ever would. :S

    That's lame. I would have loved to have had the option to open up another FFXI window and log on another character from my 1 account so that I can PL myself, etc. etc., as I do not have the luxury of having a 2nd account.
