I don't like it. It is amazing how long you can play a game and then icon are added and you don't know where to find what you are looking for. There were zero links in my brain for the icon to what it has replaced.
That does not even show all the tabs, since that is for a city not yet in chapter 18. There is one more tab for the Merchant trades in chapter 18. And we do not know yet if the chapter 19 and chapter 20 Ascended goods trades will share the same tab as the one for chapter 18, or if they might get their own tab and separate Merchants too. So pretend there are three more tabs on there and see if there is still room for more or to make them bigger.
I prefer words over pictures. The change causes one to have to point at the picture to figure out what the tab is for. I'd like to see it go back to the way it was.
I understand the need since there are so many different languages spoken here. Unfortunately, the pictures do not give justice to what the tab is actually for. In the second picture below, the trader looks like a bomb that someone is about to throw. Perhaps a picture of someone holding one of the three original boosted goods would be better. The third tab should be where the second one is, since it looks as though one is adding a trade due to the + sign next to it. The fourth tab would be better represented perhaps by a horse-drawn wagon or a set of scales.
As anything in portuguese has a lot more letters/words then in any other language, this change will be quite nice in my live server HereI only noticed the change after coming here, the positions are the same, when. I saw the ingame message I was left wandering what the change had been
Apologies for the bluntness, but this is one of the worst visual amendments ever. It's so much more difficult now... I don't know if it's meant to remove the reliance on language, but that's different from server to server anyway.
The icon seems easy enough to see on my system for the current (selected) tab. But not for the others. Backgound seems too dark.
The text was easier to see.
Given time I will learn the icons and click the wrong one less than half the time.
i don't like the changes to the trader tabs. they not only are small and hard to see, the pictures mean absolutely nothing. please put them back to the way they were before, with words instead of pictures. seems like inno tried to "dumb it down" and failed miserably.
