It appears that
T4.4 (Seamonkey) Patch – 28 (3213)
Has been implemented, at least on the beta server (f&S), even though it wasn't announced to be going live here on .com, so not sure if it's intentional or not.
In either case, here is some initial feedback for it:
1. the change to dorf1 (resource field overview) background image:
The green color feels very bright, too bright for my taste. That's at least my initial feeling. Might be a question of getting used to it, and maybe it won't be as overwhelming on smaller screens as it is on mine.
2. the change to dorf2 (village overview) background image:
Great! The image looks neat, and is easy on the eyes.
3. the change to the tabs in statistics:
I'm guessing this was changed due to:
TRAIVBXXIV-4569 Set tab as favourite: Text and star sometimes do not fit the line in the tab name
However, it looks absolutely awful.
Not only does it look bad, it also doesn't make sense: for some of the tabs, you are literally replacing two characters (ce in Alliance and ns in Regions) with three characters (...) - which makes no sense at all.
Please either revert this change, or find another way to work around it.
A possible solution could be to only have the "dot functionality" on the tab that you favorite.
I.e. if I have the Alliance tab as my favorite
You could keep the Alliance tab looking like it does here, but allow the others to be written in full (General, Regions, Player(s)).
This wouldn't cause any issues in regards to the star expanding outside the tab, and it would look a lot neater.
