Just logged in to runescape after the weekend and go to my port to find yet another change to ports and how it is laid out. This is the second time it's happened recently but this time is absolutely awful.

First of all, the old style and look to it gave it a maritime vibe, pulled you into the feeling like you are a port captain and the style of text, windows, etc all reflected that.

Each time they update it with a whole new format it takes away from that feeling that made it fun to keep coming back to, and deters your time into having to relearn how everything has been moved around and feels less like this voyage you've been spending years on to complete.

It has been incredibly annoying to me this time because the whole set up has changed, it displays entirely too much information, can't navigate through the windows as quickly or efficiently, I don't need rune metrics in my player owned port. All I ask if that they return it to the way it was before, and then, leave it alone!!

Anyone else feeling this way?
do it

Yes I couldn't agree more, I logged in and found utter disappointment from the new interface. I love some of the updates like naming your ships but please bring back the maritime vib. We need our nostalgia and our wood paneling.

I feel like I've been immersed in a cheap 90's update that compromised look for functionality. It's 2019 give us both!

To reiterate... Give us back our wood borders and paneling!

At least give an option in settings so that you can return it to the "original" interface.

For new people maybe this would help them but after doing this fairly regularly over a number of years it makes me sick looking at it. If I started it this way I likely would have been turned off by how horrible the interface is.

I don't need my stats on my ships constantly displayed, it was perfect when I'm choosing a mission because that's the time it's relevant.

I don't need resources constantly displayed, same reason, it's only relevant when I'm trading for resources or upgrading buildings.

The lack of borders in crew for hire, the mission voyages, the text change it's all garbage. Fire whoever did this update because it's absolutely horribly managed. Strips away everything that was easy to use about it, not visually appealing whatsoever.

The original interface was intelligently designed, showed only relevant info, these updates don't make anything easier and honestly I think this one facet of the game they could leave alone, it doesn't need to be changed unless they want to add new rewards (because lets face it these rewards are all outdated by something better that takes drastically less time to accomplish)
do it

I couldn't agree more the the "90s" feeling. This Windows95 look is horrendous. I like that the GUI seems to load a little faster, but not if I have to see this complete eyesore. Please change it.

The new interface is complete garbage, pale and poorly defined borders, horribly laid out, everything is spread out in a ridiculous manner, the old interface may not have been great either, but was better than this new eyesore.

Why is so spread out and not better organized, why so many open this close that things instead of having everything in one window?

Ports is one of the few reasons I play this game any more, and I don't need the interface to be so clunky I won't enjoy checking and sending out my ships.

Bring back the borders and decent colors and get rid of the pale eye sore of a background, please.
Hi.
