I prefer the old one. Doesn't matter why. The new layout is no longer particularly new. Is there a reason why I have a large text box showing still "Easier User Interface" - Choose New Simcountry Layout! I'd rather not see it since I'm choosing to go to the layout I'm in (switched from the "new one")

Can we please remove that box?

The old layout is no longer being maintained.
Furthermore I'm afraid that in time it might stop functioning and will be phased out completely.

If you have any comments or suggestions as to why you don't like using the new layout we will do our best at fixing and/or improving it.

Thanks for the response. That's honestly fine with me, and at least now I'm not wondering.

I played the game on the old layout extensively for quite some time and am so much more familiar with it. It seems intuitive to me.

I may look at the new layout more in this case, but I think I just felt I didn't need an update when it was made - so I never bothered to really "convert."

We are using both now for a very long time.
It is complex to maintain both.

We also think that after a short time, the new interface is in fact easier to use.

Also, now with the App in place, and developing quickly to include many more functions, we have another version of so many pages and functions.

It becomes too complex.

We do not intend to remove anything and in fact, most functions are automatically available in both formats so it is not going away yet at all.

I think the old layout, pretty much suits my gaming style...simple, direct, dark, not to fancy :P

I agree with several comments. The old style layout is not only easier to use (especially on an Android) but the colours are just right on the eyes. The black background with white text and green links sets a comfortable mood. The new layout requires more scrolling side-to-side and the colour options/themes are either too bright, too dark, or a colour combo that makes my good feels turn sour.

I could get used to the new layout if/when you remove the old one, but if you could at least offer the old colour scheme as an option, that'd be excellent.

We'll look into adding more color schemes and try to match one of them to the colors in the old layout.

Black background with green text worked great. That'd be much appreciated. None of the current options are particularly easy on the eyes. Sounds like there are those who do prefer the old layout. Perhaps we could copy the colors and text box layout?
