    It would be nice if it was custom and you could just pick what you want.

    I agree that the new status bar is too big.

    I like the added info, but -
    It seems like everything that was added could fit in the same size area as the "old" status bar, if all of the fields were tightened up a bit.

    When you play on a 1024x768 screen, which is the selected maximum display settings for "Full Screen Resolution" in options, and have "Game Play Windows Size" also at it's max 800x600 - the new status bar overlaps the game play screen area.

    It used to all fit nicely at max settings on screen (with regards to screen real estate) and not need to be overlapping the main game screen.

    I would love to see it all fit in the old area, for it to be a selection for using the old status bar, or for it to be customizable for info.
    (I'm guessing tightening it all up to fit in the space it used to occupy might be easiest).

    Devs - please consider reducing the footprint of the status bar menu.

    Can we have a new hidden status bar for the new hidden properties on armor?

    Whatever info people decide to make available through the status bar, can we at least have the option how it gets displayed on our screen? I can't see it would have been particularly hard to have the new stuff form a distinct and secondary 'status tab' so the choice is ours if we want it displaying or not.

    Been asking for years for similar choices about equipment info, so you can choose if you want a basic description or the full mini-spreadsheet of data, but it seems futile..... giving us the choice of how things appear on our PCs seems hopelessly lost at the bottom of the list of 'cool stuff to do' :(

    The new status bar could at least be less wide. Each column has several pixels of width that could be eliminated, while still keeping things readable.

    What might be even better would be to allow it to be rotated (a second status bar graphic) to be vertical, that could be clicked between like the display for the active buffs/debuffs.

    Not sure why it matter? Do you play with it open? Or just think it's bulky when open?

    Personally I never play with it open, just the basic bar. I only open it to double-check stats and resistances, etc. but that's always before I begin fighting... Not sure I understand why anyone would want to have it opened full during gameplay?

    startle: I find the small one unusable.

    With the detailed bar, you can tell when you have enough mana to recast a spell. And, I trust its numeric HP readout much more than going by a partially colored bar. It also makes it glaringly apparent when your dress macro fails to equip something properly.

    Mainly I found it useful for weight carried, since for some bizarre reason many of the stealable artifacts are ten stones and a trip round the abyss rapidly overloads a thief - but it's also useful to see if picking up that last piece of loot means you are about to lose stamina in huge chunks and be unable to recall away.
