Planetside User Interface


Dont think it's been talked about yet, in planetside 1 it was more like mmorpg style. But It was pretty hard to use a Xbox controller to relax with. I would like to see a more console based interface like e.g bf3 and it still have the chat boxes for the mmo style

BUMP: beta just around the corner any updates on controller support?

Re: Planetside User Interface


i´m all against dumbing down the game in any way for console compatibility!

and i know i´m far from alone with this opinion...

but we haven´t seen much of the new interfaces! almost every screen or video was with interface switched off.
all we know is, that we got a very talented guy working un the ui.

agreed, going from mouse and keyboard to a controller... the controller is just so slow and clunky in comparison.

someone will now go look it up to prove I am wrong,LOL either way we will know soon

Most developers don't know how to make the controller good. I used to stomp all over PC players when testing the PS3 builds on my last project.

Well yeah okay, if you make the crosshair magnetized to people's heads it could well have an advantage.

Guys don't let your hatred of consoles blind you, see this feature for what it is.

You could bind functions you could previously only use by changing your UI to Cursor Mode with hotkeys. On your superior keyboard. I'm all for that, I always hated changing to Cursor Mode when I might come under attack at any given second (then again I use a weird setup so I can't reach ESC easily, might not be an issue for others who can)

I miss the interface of the original UT, I've yet to see a game mimic that yet. One could only imagine what they could do to that if they took that concept and expanded on it.
