The User Interface is bad

    I was only worried that it still uses the Sims Online UI and not the Sims 4.

    Believe me, if you guys know or not, Sims Olympus existed until SimCity 5 was a letdown. It was created before Sims 3 was out, was developed for four years. It was a good idea until Maxis scrapped the idea on 2012, when the beta of the SimCity was out, which the company had a lower budget for the development of The Sims 4 at such a high speed of development, which is the reason Pools were late into the party.

    But, what's my point here is, UI is really old. I know, it will take time to update, but if you own Sims 4, you can simply screenshot, and photoshop it into simply a library of the interface components, and put it into FreeSO? What do you think?

    EDIT: Sims Olympus info made more accurate. Can't make photoshop due to copyright, TY for telling AquilaSim

    Hmm... not sure if you can do that because of copyright.

    Oh, I didn't thought of that well. But at least, thanks for the response.

    However, are the developers able to create a new User Interface even with old icons? Seems that editing the old icons to make it more like Sims 4 is nice, with the sleek layout. TBH, I like the sleek launcher, it's very Sims-4 likely, but it went to a different layout, which is still nice.

    The Sims 4 UI is awful, so I won't accept any themes that use it verbatim. It will be a long time until we allow custom UI scripts and images, due to the complexity of allowing replacements like that and making a UIScript editor.

    What you would expect from an 2002 game?

    Please no, the Sims 4 UI is horrible. A modern UI would be nice maybe, but i like the normal one the best actually :p

    Even if they wanted to "help" not sure that would be a great news for FreeSO, looking at their last Sims game...

    I'd like to hear more about what's bad in TSO UI, except for the fact that someone might be complaining about things that look old because they're old. I'd like to hear some points. I personally believe that there are a few UI elements that I'd consider bad UX-wise (catalog!), but "photoshopping out" things from ts4 won't fix it.

    i agree, the catalog is the worst thing of the UI of the game
