New In-Game Layout!
Reign Of Blood started in 2006 with a layout theme which is now called 'RoB-Lite' (A fan favourite.) In 2009 a new more graphical interface was created. Now that it's 2013, it's time for another one. This new layout is more geared to the current 'Gorgoyle Theme' users. RoB-Lite users still love RoB-Lite, and I wouldn't want to change that.
"Don't fix what ain't broke." A common feedback line. I personally am completely against it. Things can always be improved. So, what's different about this layout?
- New top header images, new side background, and new footer
- Has the same structure as before. So it feels new, but also very similar
- Few small changes to left sidebar, including new images
- Portal link added to the top navigation
- Main content area is a little wider to support 'wider' future features
- Game blog posts moved to top for easy viewing when new post is made
- Created with maximum compatibility with current profiles
I can also happily announce that I have removed Chill-Out from the top navigation on RoB-Lite and replaced it with the Portal.
You can change to any of the 3 themes on the account page at any time.
Thanks for all the great feedback on the new layout! I have made a few changes and fixes, listed below:
- Footer image now saved locally, and no longer appearing at the bottom of profiles
- Coven and house CSS issues have been resolved
- Made the red & green bar images a little brighter
An issue that some players have (especially ones with smaller resolution displays) is that you have to scroll down to see some stuff. That's always kind of been an issue. Reign Of Blood has a lot of content, and most of it does need to be displayed on the left. I am never going to create a 3rd column down the right, so that's simply out of the question. I have however, come up with a nice compromise.
Introducing, the new top info bar:
Using the new layout, you can enable this bar (it is on by default) which displays the game time, quick heal/suicide links, blood hour notification, and your general notifications (news, blood letters etc.) I hope you like this handy little addon. You can disable this by going to your account page.
A big thanks to Azzazel Aesculus
for supplying the beautiful artwork for this new layout. Please continue to post any feedback or glitches on this thread,
September Competition Results
Thank you to everybody who submitted quest ideas last month. I've read through them all, and recorded all the ones I liked. I have given each of the top quest ideas 2 plasma each! You should see your quests (or quests based on your ideas) very soon.
Halloween Profiles/October Competition Reminder
Halloween is soon upon us! Don't forget that this months competition
to win plasma is to have an awesome Halloween profile! I've even got one
. If you've entered into this months competition, then you might as well enter Mayne's competition
as well, he's giving away some IG cash for the same thing.
Google Checkout Shutdown/OneBip Issues
Just a heads up, early next month, Google Checkout are shutting down. (Which works out for the best overall, as they're a pain.) I have a replacement lined up, but I assure all the Google Checkout users, your card will work with REALEX. (Our recommended payment option.) More information next month. I am also aware of the problem some UK players are having with OneBip. My support request is still pending, but hopefully I'll get this fixed ASAP.
Have a great week!
