    Hey all!

    Exciting news - we have a new development video out here:



    Please note that things are not quite final - but we're very happy with the UI direction and overall look and feel. Plus, 3D planets and stars! :p

    Enjoy!

    -Steve

    cool
    I think it will be better to have old (more classic - Renaissance) interface, to feel aristocracy and pathos

    We disagree! But there will be a few more decorative gold elements introduced in various places. Our main challenge in coming up with the look of the interface was to make it readable whilst also having both old-fashioned Napoleon III-style elements and a futuristic feel - hence the blue holograms with solid-looking gold decorations. We also want to introduce contrasting elements for the psychic functions, plus of course all the icons and House banners and so on, which will really add some zip to it. Designing an interface is a lot more difficult than it looks!

    Intuitive icons is grait idea. In stratagy its easy to understand statistic with icons, but in my opinion imperor work is more like RPG. So game need some balace between both. From strategic view on empire map to clasic (even oldscool) text and pictures when direct control interaction with vassals.
    Of course I'm not developer and my ideas can be wrong or even bad. I believe you will make exciting game. But for now (in video) nither Napoleon III-style, nither futuristic feel. :(

    P.S. It's all about feling. Gameplay is awesome!
