I personally do not like the blue icons that appear in rooms that are not being utilized and believe they are not a good idea. To me they do not provide information that I need and serve to muddy up the otherwise beautiful aesthetic of the home screen. However, I appreciate that others may feel differently.

I'm hoping people can vote here and say simply whether they like this feature or not, and am further hoping that Bumble will listen. If the people like it then leave it, but if most do not find that it adds desired functionality or a pleasant aesthetic then it should be easy to simply delete that function.

I vote no.

I love the details of the HQ rooms. Even a noob can tell at a glance what room it is. If in doubt click on the Workshop and learn that you aren't crafting a sword there!
It definitely clutters the screens, hides toon movements and smoke, sparks, etc. It's also not aesthetically pleasing.

As I already wrote in the update thread: I also don't like the blueish room indicators. They're blocking the view on the actually really beatyful HQ-Rooms and after a year we know our HQ inside and out.

No to both the blue and yellow.

We organized the rooms ourselves, so hopefully they are logically and conviently laid out. The icons solve a non existant problem. We kow where everything is.

I vote NO. There's no need for an icon to tell me when something is NOT ready. It just clutters up the screen.

Absolutely terrible innovation. Firstly, these indicators are completely useless. Secondly, they spoil the appearance of rooms and the entire fraternity as a whole. And thirdly, their display cannot be turned off.

I vote No. It makes no sense to have the same blue icon showing when the room is not in use AND when something is in progress. It gives no more information than having no icon at all. It just looks ugly and spoils the aesthetic of the screen. Keep the yellow icons for when something has completed, although I did prefer the smaller style of icons we had previously.

I vote to remove them, or at least give us the option to turn them off. I actually thought I was experiencing a graphical issue the first time I saw them.

Didnt realize at first that the yellow icons were enlarged. It's a little distracting. Love the idea of a toggle switch for the blues in the Setting Menu under Options.

If the size of the yellow icon is gonna be messed with then I'd go the opposite direction ok n and make it smaller than it was previously and not larger. It's nice to know when a room has finished production, but if you want to have a display for rooms I would much rather see a completion timer in a corner of the room than a big branding icon for the room front and center

I agree here. Go back to smaller. WAY smaller. I can live with the option to disable them as well.

If you must keep them (whether we can disable or not), at least make them smaller, transparent, and add a gauge feature so it fills with production progress that we can see at a glance.

But please consider adding a remove feature or auto remove after Brotherhood level 10 or something.
A gauge would be better than just a big blue useless icon over the room!

Another No. I know where I put the rooms and I can tell what they are just by looking.

I never used the forum before and just came to say:
Please remove this ugly icons. Or make them optional. It ruins the whole look and add no info for me.
And the yellow ones smaller.
And also the new daily quest screen is very ugly and I can't collect the rewards I want as fast as before.

Blue icons look awful totally spoilt the looks of the game. There so not needed, it's a NO from me.I don't need an icon positioned on top of the room at all, only to show when something is completed. Why change the looks of the daily quest menu, it now looks like a feature from Minecraft. Please change it back.

Welcome! Check out the monthly calendars for the events!
I also would like the old dailies menu back. It was faster to collect (3 at a time), and I like the list and preview format. I know the game is whimsical and funko-popish but the new menu looks like it's from a Sesame Street game...

Symbols are there to tell you that assassins inside have finished work/training. If they haven't, a different symbol just confuses unnecessarily.

I believe the room overlays should be an option you can turn on or off.
I personally hate the new blue icons and have stopped playing the last few days because of it.

I have not missed a day in months.

I like the idea of being able to toggle them off, but I'll have the game finished in a few weeks, so not fussed either way :)

So if it's yes or no, I got with No

I'm with you. Four more event toons and it's just dailies from there. Still, you can't even tell if something's being worked on with the icons. I've forgotten to craft codices twice now because I didn't see that Jaime wasn't in the Library...

Ok, we wouldn't like to start this voting again. Anyone who voted no and wouldn't accept a turn-off-button as a fair solution? I would so, if it did not turn off the yellow signs, as well.

If anything, I might make the Blue icons smaller and more translucent. I appreciate No longer having to memorize my base layout. It's nice to identify the rooms at a glance.

It's important to remember that anyone who likes the changes would not show up to complain on the message boards. Their votes simply won't be counted.

Ima_Smakya

If you don't know your HQ layout by now, write it down or take screenshots. Each room has its own identity and they are very visibly different...

I think it would be useful if the blue icons showed that something was being made in a room, I for one sometimes forget to assign tasks in them, and this way it would be visible in a glance. Also the yellow icons are important imo. In their current form the blue ones are quiet useless though.

It's not true that people only log on here to complain. I, as well as many others, check the forums multiple times per week. We give credit when good things are done, like the most recent event, and shame where appropriate, like the blue icons.

I do appreciate the feedback, but yours is the first 'yes' vote in five pages so grain of salt and all

I agree. The new format is harder to read (white on yellow...) and we can no longer scan the list with reward as easily.

So my theories on the blue icons is this...


1. They have been there since the beginning of the game, and weren't visible due to some bug. Now that the bug is fixed it would be impossible to make them go away without breaking the game.

or

2. Someone got this great idea for blue icons, made it their baby, fought for it, got it finally added to the game after much deliberation and development.

And, we all just called their baby ugly... Shameful.

Kachocalvo

No matter how much that person loves it, the baby is objectively and definitely ugly.

ichwarschneller
01-07-2020, 06:19 PM
One more theory:

3. That's a kind of spyware installed by the Templars and we still need to find out how to destroy it.

At least, this would explain why there isn't even an off-button in settings.
