We're currently working on improving the UI and general user experience while using TheoTown. Currently, we're experimenting with the toolbar to create the best variant of the 2 already existing ones.

Below, you'll see progress and spoilers where you can submit your feedback.

This post will be updated as changes progress.

If you are going to make the toolbar transparent, I would hide the UI that's behind it. Seeing the population and happiness boxes make it a bit harder to see imo.

Yeah, there's the whole question wherever it's better to keep it opaque.

I'd say the first one's better.

Will there be a setting between blue and white? I kinda like having it classic.

The white one is better, the blue one is fine, the lighter blue is bad with white text. If there are more items, i suggest using the arrow buttons like when we choose a decoration variants, because the button is more precise for scrolling. and the maximum rows is 4 or 5, don't make the whole screen full of UI. :bc

I like the white one more, but it would be cool if there's a setting to change between white and blue

I like how more rows of items are finally visible now. Being limited to one row of items has been my least favorite part of the current UI.

Yep, i agree. In mobile it's passable until you have lots of things and you need to scroll a lot to find something and in PC it was trash. Now it's quite better to find stuff without scrolling too much.

Also, i would suggest that the game detects the size of the UI and automatically decides to show less or more rows of stuff, so in small screens it doesn't occupy half of the screen and not having to scroll much in big screens

My suggestion - remove texts and the NEW! thingy - they both look terrible.

not sure though. changes looks not so substantial on first glance.
would prefer the old UI for vista, looks the best.

I believe you can disable the NEW thing in the settings somewhere.

I know this UI mockup is a bit cramped, but I think it would be nice if the price of each item was displayed so you could look at them at a glance.
