Is the gear layout still terrible?

There’s a major update this coming Tues/Wed, after the weekend.

The devs have already stated that they will not be reverting back to the old UI (you asked in about this in another thread), but would rather tweak the new UI to address issues and complaints about it.

As far as we know, there has only been a small public tease released on the upcoming changes in this thread,

In your position, I would wait until this time next week and take a look at the feedback from the UI portion of the update. I’m more than sure there will be ample feedback posted by many of us forum regulars about this topic by then for you to make an informed decision on the matter.
