    Hello!


    As many of you know, there has been a large amount of discontent regarding the new look of S1914 ever since it was implemented. I'm less opposed to it, and in regards to those faults that it has, I'm rather willing to make suggestions so that it can be tailored to feedback from the community and improve.


    That being said, there is one thing in particular that sticks out quite a bit for me. The interface, and the new design in general, has an emphasis on a "modern" look (faded colours, blue/grey buttons and panels, futurist design), which in my opinion is not reflective of the era (1914-1918) and is one element of the game that has the potential to improve the visual appearance tremendously if done properly.


    I think something which would greatly enhance the visual aspect, and which, if implemented as a general trend with other visual cues, would make the game look beautiful, is a more traditional look.

    Thank you! :)

    It's funny because the old website had this style.

    Soldiers!

    don't give yourselves to brutes

    men who despise you

    enslave you

    who regiment your lives

    tell you what to do

    what to think and what to feel!

    Who drill you

    diet you

    treat you like cattle,

    use you as cannon fodder.

    Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men

    machine men with machine minds and machine hearts!
