A couple of months ago I made a topic in the same vein:(viewtopic.php?f=29&t=52827&p=929181#p929181
The main talking points was that parts of OTTD had got to complex and was causing problems in the expansion of the game in the user base and the game itself, and one area was the settings. In my mind the settings in OTTD needs an overhauling. The key point that are an issue to me are:
- There are too many menus, there should be one and not several,
- Some of the setting should be moved closer to their need in the game, E.g the save date format of game should be placed in the saved game screen,
- Finally the way the settings are displayed, list of setting in small text in long lists needs changing.
I come up with a basic idea shown below of the layout that would be good; it used the suggestion from here, (viewtopic.php?f=32&t=59694
) using clear and larger text, using more screen space. There are some suggestions on the settings that should or should not be in the menu in the top link.
