    I love this ui idea looks clean and not cluttered like the current one.

      I didn't even think about the symmetry until you mentioned it. This is why I liked the orignal UI so much more, and it fit the aesthetic of Dota 2.

        With regards to MDuh's reply: The multiple units show up in the stats box. So with my mock-up it would still work. With regards to everyone's posts about the transparent boxes: They can easily be filled with some artwork that could be removed for a 4:3 ratio.

        I prefer uncluttered, simplistic UIs. IMO the courier/glyph/shop part of the new UI is just taking up too much room than necessary.

        Again, excuse my lack of paint skills.

            Great. Much better.

            The current UI is a mess with too much information in weird places. So many community contributions that are so much better. Also, space for casters + streamers for webcam + sponsors.

            +1 for fucking symmetry and common sense.


            • #21
              IMO symmetry, besides just looking better, also makes it a lot easier to get to any part of the UI: grouping icons more evenly across the space, I think, makes for more accurate and efficient muscle memory recall. I for one would rather move my mouse pointer from the center of the screen to the add skill button, rather than move my left hand from WASD to O. The off-center thing is really annoying, esp. given how the space between the map and the portrait does absolutely nothing.

                The idea is great, but i also think that it would be better (the new courier board in the left side of the inventory and the quick buy up), sadly i suck editing images on photoshop.
                Also the new icon for fortification is too big, i dont know where it would be.

                  I got myself photoshop to improve on this UI. I made a new thread over here:
