A screenshot of the new game page layout, to wet your tastebuds ;)

The blank area up the top will be a scroll with general game information, and clicking on it will roll the scroll down for detailed information. The blank area down the bottom will be the game log scroll, with the blank bits to the side of the social media buttons being notifications that there are new global/team messages. The buttons around the outside will be various action and information buttons. Still a fair way to go, but the design is there, so now it's mostly just coding yay.

Looks awesome. The location and look of the buttons is perfect.

Just finished styling on the buttons, flyout functionality on the scrolls, and embedding the game log.

The resolution below is what you'll see on a 1024x768 screen, which is the lowest resolution we'll be supporting. Still, everything seems to fit in quite nicely.

New site design got released today as v1.0.0. From now on, releases will have version numbers rather than change log numbers.

If you encounter any bugs or issues, please post them in the forums. There is automatic bug logging, so I will pick the bugs up as they occur, but any background information that players can provide is much appreciated when trying to reproduce the issue.

No log in windows: password/username front page?
My 1920 resolution has the scrolldown menus (like "Games" top left) are quite small. I would prefer bigger.
Create game is too low while creating game.
The choosing of start nation is misunderstanding. When you choose your nation the window stays up or has a attitude that you should push something more, not just go away from the page. It's confusing I think it was same before and also then I was confused by the way it stayed up.

All of these are easy enough to fix, I'll see if I can fit them in this weekend as a hotfix.

Alright, I've added all these in as suggestions. The create game one might take a little while as I have to run diagnostics on the process, but the others should be in quick enough.

They're all in now. I couldn't improve the create games times a great deal, explanation is given in the implemented suggestion thread.

Thanks ;).

We misspoken. In "Create Games" I meant that the button "Create Game" is too low and hits the window frame for my 1920 resolution. So it is covered in the middle with FB "like" "Follow" Twittter "Tweet" "Follow".
