Completely redesigning CC, see inside for improvements

Postby bryanbr on Tue Jun 13, 2006 5:15 am

I am redesigning Conquer Club. Although I have only been working on this for a couple weeks, see the links here for a number of user interface improvements. I think I am about 2 weeks out from having it playable.

Improvements:

1. Large map fits into 1024x768 screen size. I think I will also make an extra-large map size for people with large displays.

2. All tables are sortable. Makes finding games easily.

3. Player list is collapsible via Show Players button. Makes listing games easier.

4. Use drag and drop for attacks.

5. The CC game "Type" renamed to "Teams". Real "types" of games such as Capitol or Mission risk will be availabe.

6. "Freestyle" renamed to "Simultaneous".

7. Little things like moving the "End Attacks" button away from the "Attack" button.

Thoughts?

I think the look is OK, but I don't like Chat being on a seperate tab. People (including me) already forget to check it when it's on the bottom of the page. It may never get used if it's a seperate tab!

You should really just open one topic about the same thing

http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2166

And since this really isn't a redesign of CC but really your own version of the game it really should have been put into the Off-Topic forum.

Actually I decided to do a complete straight risk clone. The other game will be separate. It would have been too confusing to users to include the tactical option.

This is a list of suggestions and improvements that can be implemented in CC. It was moved to "Off Topic" for what reason?

Great ideas, all of 'em.

You most likely have moderator connections with these ideas; could you make the names here on the forum have links to their profiles, like on the "My Games" page?

It was probably moved because you are
redesigning Conquer Club
and making your own version not making suggestions for improving the current Conquer Club.

Since you are promoting a new web site I think it was appropriatly moved to Off-Topic.

There is no "promotion" in the post. That is entirely a figment of your imagination.

The list of suggestions and improvements is just that. Things that should/could be improved in CC.

Oh well, better things in life to do than police silly moderators.

I like the idea of adding capital and mission risk to the site.
