Thread: More professional selection circle on heroes (examples inside)

    More professional selection circle on heroes (examples inside)

    Hey.

    I know it's not a super big deal, as LoL is completely sub-par when it comes to user interface, but some things are still pretty crude here.

    For instance, the selection box. Here's what we've got so far:



    Basic white circle. Very, very crude. Readable, but archaic and un-professional.

    It gets worse on cliffs:



    Basically it just skewes up and down on the rotation axis and it just looks bad.

    So here is my suggestion:



    Simple, readable and ELEGANT.

    Here's how it works for the first instance:



    And for the 2nd one, I made it how it SHOULD be - the selection circle should never make rotations based on terrain, it should MELD on it (like a 2D UVW map), like this:



    Opinions, comments?

    Well, we could also fall back to 2D graphic with this. I think having a nice user interface is something that is a must have in a game.
    Why do we have ground textures?^^

    I agree that a nice user interface is an important feature, but I don't see how this improves the user interface in the slightest

    +1. Looks much nicer, and is a great improvement. I don't understand why anyone would find this as bad, or something to hate on - it looks great and definitely better than what it looks like now.

    Seriously, you guys are going to bash on him for making a small suggestion that makes it look better? Come on.

    Aesthetics are important just to make you "like" the game more when you play. Also, this does not seem that hard to do? (Just a guess)
