New Server Menu Controversy

    First I'd like to say I'm very thankful for the new update. This is to provide constructive criticism for the project.
    With the new Plutonium T6 Codebase, the server menu has been changed and here's what I've heard about it.

    -"It looks nice"
    -"I'm really digging it"
    -"Anyone else really hate this new server menu?"
    -"I can't sort or search anymore..."
    -"This looks like CSGO, why did they change it?"
    -"Server names can't have colors anymore"

    I feel there's a bit of controversy as this was an unexpected change.
    Here's my opinion on it:

    It feels a bit like a weird overlay, when scrolling it also affects in game. I also do miss the search feature, and the colors.
    What I think people want is something similar to the old one, it had a slick design, showed the map name and an image of the map that was on, the server names were colorful which looked nice and gave each server it's own look. I think this unexpected change that felt out of no where has thrown people off, and no one was expecting this change. From other people's perspective, "something changed that didn't need to change." Most players don't understand anything about a codebase, they just notice that the server menu looks way different, and lacks features of the old one which I think is what has caused a decent amount of players to hate on it.

    Again, this post is not meant to hate, at all. I would like to see this project improve and this is one thing I think most players will agree with.
    Please give your opinions.

    The decision to use this as the server browser over what was used before is because the previous way of doing no longer worked in the code base. A long with that, its not by any means a simple task to get the html ui to work. Rather than holding off the entire client update to have a pretty server browser this is what is used

    @Matrix I definitely understand everything, I was stating my opinions on how it can be improved in the future ๐Ÿ™‚

  • font kind of feels dead, it would be nice for the servers to have bigger names and the menu being a bit bigger

    i guess its fine it does what it does, in my opinion better than the old one but could use a bit of brushing up ๐Ÿ™‚

    Also it was really bloated for what it did, 260+ MB for the menu were ridiculous.

  • @Xerxes I think it also updated anticheat or something as well as the server browser

    This will be enabled in a future update. As will some form of scaling to make it bigger or smaller.

  • i see the GUI in most fortnite cheats, thats what it reminds me of lmfao

  • @mikzy agree and reminds me of csgo cheats hahaha

  • @sl0zy its the same software thats why lol

  • i also got my all my stats reset with the new update, video settings included

  • @xov nvm i just had to unlockall in console

  • @Rare I completally agree with you.
    I hope they will bring the previous server browser back (or something more "user-friendly").

    Best regards

  • @MirkoD2 we wont bring the old server list back for the sake that it ate processing power even if it wasn't visible. It was honestly fucking terrible. The new server list will be tweaked and all features from the previous server list will be added.

  • is online matchmaking and playlists coming to plutonium like it was on console back in the days without the servers list?

  • @RektInator Ok, that's perfect, thank you ;D
