    This was when they had a roadmap and were planning ahead, they had a test sever the users could log on.

    Unfortunatly the funding was cut, things like monstrosity were never finished, they had intended for RoV to be pretty much the end of regular content, however they have relented (When we saw an increase of people coming back for RoV) and we leep going.

    This won't ever happen without more investment, which isn't going to happen.

    Need more people here to support this measure, lets go people.

    Hah, I applaud you, but you have to remember that a lot of us have been asking since 2013 and have been ground down over time

    Monstrosity was huge for some people, for it to suddenly fall off a cliff, before it was even finished...

    The had clear plans back in the day, roadmaps on where they saw the game going, they would share these with the users, it would be great to see that again, ok I'll fall in line and support you

    The UI update they were making honestly wasn't very good.

    I would much prefer they just increase the texture res of the UI components, which is pretty easy to do for them.

    If it isn't broken, don't invite them to break it.
    Unfortunately, I wouldn't trust the current team with open-ended projects. I wish they would focus on and better communicate where they plan to address a very specific X by doing Y. This way, we could more easily double-check their work, since the player base itself is clearly their Q&A department. Lucky us. Especially when they don't listen or respond to any of us.

    The person who was in charge of it left Square Enix, and that was the end of that. Same with Monstrosity, funny enough.

    Ive seen a lot of people dog on it from the test server and I'm like, "you realize that was a super early really incomplete version right?"

    It still had a lot of potential with moveable windows, the new UI was the whole reason new icons were created for all the spells and abilities.


    If it isn't broken, don't invite them to break it.
    FFXI's interface is about the clunkiest of any online game ever outside of a MUD. I understand your sentiment, but the game could really, really do with something better.

    it looks a bit fresh air back then. Sadly as of the current, they looked too outdated. Rather asks for major structure updates, which if possibly happens, should also affect majority of stuff including much improved UIs.

    I'm amazing nobody on the test server saved the files for the UI.

    How do you know this?
