To say I was floored as well as extremely happy would be an understatement. I have some minor concerns about the ship icons and how easy it will be to distinguish them on the overview when all is said and done, but I like the direction and the desired outcome.There have been some reports from the community that a lot of people were unhappy and requesting a rollback to the old icons! *GASP*
I'm not too sure about the hollow nature of the ship icons though, I found in my overview they tended to blend together when I was facing a mixed fleet: the frigates stood out from the cruisers, but the battlecruiser and more importantly the battleship icons blended in too well, just too many lines, not enough shape.
However, no request to rollback here, I like the direction.
If you're having trouble getting used to the new icons, I highly recommend downloading a copy of Rixx Javix's handy icon guide he created. Thanks Rixx!
