It’s still a problem with the UI as well, to be honest - it’s not like the health hazards like the sidescrolling or transparent board are gone and communication about what will be done about that has also come to a halt; in the Q&A only the sidescrolling had been adressed with a “maybe we will make it optional” while all other issues weren’t even mentioned besides a “we will continue to improve the UI”.
I still think this game has better dev-community interactions than basically all other games, but I feel like really critical things indeed don’t get adressed in a specific way. The usual answer is “We will work on things and discuss them”, but that’s like me saying I’m working on becoming a millionaire and discussing with my parents how to do that: It doesn’t mean that anything will happen at all regarding whatever specific thing people here want to know about.
I personally prefer clear statements like “Nothing will change” or “In the next three months, definitely nothing will change; we need to think about matters at least for that long”. Even if they are disappointing for people, at least we then know what to expect. A “we discuss matters” just makes people wait with growing impatience; the devs aren’t doing themselves a favor with vague stuff. I guess they hope it’ll blow over; that as soon as RNG blesses us with Pharos-Ra, most people here will just shut up and forget about it all.
