Astax, don't worry about it. What you are seeing is very common in all games. People think they want change, but when change happens, they don't like it. Part of it is psychological - people have their own vision, and when it doesn't match, they hate it. Movies adapted from a beloved book have a similar problem.

I like some of the new icons, and the color coding of ports really help me be a better trader. So I'm not one of your critics ;)

I agree with Holti. It happens, ignore it and keep plugging away please. We desparately need to continue to upgrade the look and feel of this game in order to keep and increase the player base.

You are doing fine, don't worry about a few complainers, notice I said few. What that means is that most others are perfectly fine with what you have done. I know personally I like all the changes.

A few people in another thread in the general discussion were complaining about the update of some in game graphics.

ah well. that will go away. If we would bring up all the graphics that the real 1999 space merchant had, people would cry even louder. Those were small and ugly compaired to what we have now. So unless we get someone to fully style our page we have to stick with what we can do. i like it!
