Feedback on the new website

I've tried the new website for a bit, personally I don't care all that much for redesigns, my only real gripe with the old site is the filtering system, which - I'm happy to see - got a major improvement on the new website. Dark mode is a nice to have, although light mode should remain as an option as well, if it is in fact still available in the new website, where is the option to switch to it? Regardless, I suggest adding a little UI switch element in the toolbar.

Another major improvement in my opinion is how search results for any given game aren't limited to a single page anymore. Great job!

One of the things that does annoy me to some degree however, is how spaced out almost every UI element is. I understand it's becoming somewhat of a standard due to touchscreens, but I can't imagine many would benefit from being able to navigate this site more easily with a tablet. The most extreme example of this is how every list item takes up twice as much vertical space than on the old website. A lot of unnecessary scrolling if you ask me.

A somewhat unnecessary change is how you have to use a dropdown menu to download a file directly, I understand you want to promote your application, but I wouldn't use the site in the first place if I did have the application.

In short:


  • Updated filtering system

  • No single page limit on search results anymore


  • No option/No easy way to switch to light mode

  • Wasteful UI element spacing (particularly for list items)

    I agree there is clearly too much white space.

    • On the old site you could see 12 result items on a 1440p screen

    • On the new site this is only 6 items

    This is clearly too much unused space.

    Additionally, on the new site you can't even see the different download links without scrolling down. Why are you putting less functionality in my viewport? It's supposed to be an improvement.

    You are right about the excessive spacing, I am also aware of the vertically and horizontally spacement. In fact, It took me three mouse scrolls to reach the bottom of the new page compared to one scroll to reach the comment section on the current page of the same mod. I know this is due to the image section added but still...
