    Default [Fans' Opinion] Which UI Card Model you prefer?

    Hi everyone, here's another poll for the fans to guide us into which type of Unit Info Cards we should base on. Here's two types suggested, if you have any other one, please provide a sample to it. The poll will last two weeks and after that it will be closed. (Note the below models are draft ones, the picture is not the final product).

    Model One
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    Model Two
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    • The advantage of Model One is the additional description won't be hampered by the card size.
    • The advantage of Model Two is the picture will show a greater variety of unit models.


    Ready! Set! Vote!

    Its a hard call for me, i like the greater detail of the single unit, but i like the variation shown by the larger units

    Model two: greater potential for an epic feel

    I don't like to decide on this, I like both but I'll choose for model one.

    See here how to make the stats section have the same color with the rest of the UI card.

    Ooh thats a hard call! Darn you poly!
    But i think i will have to go with model 2, i like seeing the greater variety in the units rather than just one man.

    I'll have to go for Model One, for following reasons...

    1) it really highlights and emphasises the actuall unit (with less environment and more unit details)
    2) the unit stats are in a more prominent location, right beside a larger unit image
    3) the abilites and description (esp. if more detailed) have more space and are 'smoother' to read
    4) the overall appearance seems clearer and more tidy
    5) when switching through a couple of units / UI cards, we immediatly and more easily see what (kind of) unit we are dealing with
    6) if the UI card image (in Model One) is similar to the small unit icon/image (in the battle control panel) that offers a good recognition value - and looks good /professional

    Perhaps the version from AnthoniusII's above post is even just a little better, as it shows the unit in greater detail without distracting environment...
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    As for epicness and unit variety... that's what the actually battles are there for. And in WotW they'll be a great sight, for sure!


    -------

    PS: I just realised that you folks will be giving us extra unit (stat) infos in the unit description, which I really, really appreciate. I was just going to draw your attention to the micro-mod I made for EB with extended unit stat infos... I'll do it anyway -> here. I always found it odd, that CA never had more unit stat infos available in-game. The more the better imo... perhaps adding some of these extra stats (if not planned already) would be possible? I know it's quite presumptuous to ask, and perhaps I'll do something similar for WotW once it's out (and the first inevitable patches have been released).
    As a sidenote: Hah... at the time I actually thought my little mod there was a lot of work. But compared to what you guys are doing here, it's only a little wisp - so a big thanks for your great efforts!!

    PPS: I'm not sure if you're aware of this
    font tool, that allows to use different fonts etc. in unit cards and the like. Might be interesting for you?

    Model two is creative. Modal two demand creativity for every unit. Shouldn't be a problem, but keep it in the back-mind. Modal one show only one unit, which is kinda sad. I'm at odds...

    Once I get the time to do it, I'll see if I can manage to add all the additional trait info of the unit not shown with Model 2. I have to reduce the number of words and make it compact.

    I prefer Model # 2, I can't say why precisely but for my eyes it seems better.

    first for me too
    thats allow to keep other combinations more surprising for the player.
    Though the second is interesting about the possibility to feature the environment of the units(scottish moor, swiss mountain...).
