I have a problem.

See, I like to look at my ships from time to time, mess around with them, outfit them. I love seeing the ship sitting there, bobbing in the water in the background while I'[m messing with stuff.

But since 0.9.6, whenever I am on modules, all I see is this grey background, which takes away from the reason I play this game, the awesome models of ships.

I can see the ships again if I move to exterior, or port tabs, but I spend most of the time messing about in modules, especially when setting up ships or quickly checking consumables.

Additionally, I CANNOT SEE THE MODELS FOR UNPURCHASED SHIPS BEFORE I BUY THEM. You can only see the unpurchased ships in modules, which you can't now...

Does anyone know how to fix this?

I do, but not much

1. Open this file " preferences.xml " with any software can edit text

2. Find this section

Quote

        <ussSettings>
            <contrast>    0    </contrast>
            <blurEnabled>    0    </blurEnabled>
        </ussSettings>

3. Change the

<blurEnabled>    0    </blurEnabled>  > > >   <blurEnabled>    1    </blurEnabled>

<contrast>    0    </contrast>    < < <  I recommend 0 or you can change it from Settings  "Increase GUI Contrast"

0= Enable

1= Disable

When you are on the "Modules" tab, you need to click this part

You're welcome.

Yeah this might take some time to get used to. Personally speaking, I have yet to find a thing that satisfies me on this patch.

Also don't like for a ship you don't own in the tech tree page, that you need to click once to select it and then again on the right hand side "Preview" button to preview the ship. Liked it better the way it was before.

I think i reduced the left click button life on my G703 lightspeed by a very significant amount until I figured out there was a preview button I was supposed to click. Whoops! :Smile_facepalm:

 

In case you are not aware in 097 there is a VERY long awaited feature coming to the game. This is one large reason behind the new interface page for equipment I would think.

In 097 we are going to be able to completely customise the keys used for consumables. Finally we are going to be able to put heal on the same key for every ship. Gone will be the times when I pop hydro instead of my heal. Well hopefully anyway.

Then what is the point of "upgrading all the port visuals in past patches" when you dump the visuals for something bland? Makes such beautiful ports like every other patch. FYI, the only port I am using now is AL room because the my preferred Yokosuka mod is buggy and I couldn't be bother to keep on correcting it.

This is one of the issues I have with wg; make something nice only to abandon it later. It is like working without a long term plan. Oh wait, everything they do is without thinking long term. /looks at the sad state of balance and matchmaking.

I see what WG were going for: the old version was cluttered and confusing. Not as bad as the combat missions section, which they arguably fixed reasonably well this patch, but messy nonetheless. The main problem was that the upgrade modules were by default hidden, and the options for the upgrade modules hidden again. I'm sure I'm not the only one to have got a new ship, sailed off into combat with it, and then realized several games in that I'd forgot to equip the modules. 

That said, the solution has not satisfied the playerbase, to put it mildly. No, @Grygus_Triss, you are not alone. Reaction has been universally negative, and it's the number 1 complaint of 9.6 patch.

They have also massacred the Sarushima Base. It used to be cool even at low settings.

I like the old Sarushima base. It's sunny and happy looking'.

The new one looks gloomy and sad. It has lost that good vibe feeling.
Lighting, HA!
It's darker compared to the old one. The picture above says it all. Gloomy.

 

And I agree with @dejiko_nyo WG / Lesta is just butchering the game lately.
No long term strategy. Not listening to feedback. Cower behind closed doors and deaf ears. Forcing players with their unpopular decisions.
Avarice more important than customer satisfaction.

Yeah Sarushima Base used to have a bright colour scheme because it is an anime port. Now apart from the artificial island it is just a regular port.

And back on topic, yeah the new modules and upgrades UI is fugly. As a person who actually likes looking at my ships in port, I want to spend as little time as possible with those opaque backgrounds.

Soz @Grygus_Triss, I wouldn't even expect a mod to be able to fix it. Their new UX looks like it was designed by someone with training in mobile device design; not PC UX design. Warships as usual demonstrating their UX is bottom tier.

As for colours... Warships has a more gray/stormy wash over it. They often have limited the contrast within each of their maps or bases for thematic reasons, it's extremely common for games and movies set in that time period.

Sort of like how The Matrix is overdone on green and Underworld down on saturation and made blue.

The problem is as pointed out; it actually looks worse in some ways.

The thing that I hate is I'm due an upgrade on my PC (note - laptop is fine) to maintain max specs while watching a billion YT videos. While Warships shouldn't need it their new 'HDR' Ports and battle effects mean I need it sooner rather than later; but I'm holding out for RTX 30-series.

The stupidity of that is that it's because they are really poorly optimised, not because they actually need that much power.

And this brings it back into my point; their new visuals aren't really HDR, they've just applied different lighting and contrast settings while re-theming the maps. True HDR is about having the foreground visible rather than dark when silhouetted against a bright light; they've done the opposite.

It's more in realm of a rebrand than actually improving the product.

Some look good, others less so but doesn't change how crud their engine is or how poor their UX and design processes are.

But that is another topic.

More like Console.

It look like Playstation games UI, its kinda similiar to WoWs legends UI

which can be good if there is Crossplay or some kind.

 

Its far to cluttered for Mobile games UI

^ This is actually more realistic. Island in the middle of nowhere where you get your cute lolis in skimpy bikinis.

shot-20_07.12_12_07.44-0106.thumb.jpg.cc

^ This is not even in the middle of the North Pacific or Bering Straits with the grays... Actually, it looks like the beach with a storm about to hit.

You know what? The guys who make Yokosuka with Day/Night cycles actually do a better job BECAUSE THEY CAN EVEN IMPLEMENT CHANGING ENVIRONMENT.

Just keep putting in bug reports that say that it looks bad now. Let WG know that their lighting changes are bad.
