We have been hard at work addressing your comments and concerns about the new player list and want to show you the solutions we came up with before we release this again.
We have changed the offset from the top and side of the screen to be much smaller based on your feedback. Previously this was 24 pixels and in the updated version we have decreased it to 4 pixels.
We updated the size of the leaderboard to match the old size of the leaderboard in the horizontal direction. Here are some images with both the old leaderboard and the new leaderboard for size comparisons.
On games with a smaller number of max players (6 - 12), where you might have designed your UI with a certain pixel leaderboard height in mind we have updated the leaderboard to clamp at the max height of the old leaderboard. So in a game with 8 players and no teams the old leaderboard would not have taken up more than 208 pixels so the new leaderboard will not take up more space than that.
We changed how the leaderstat abbreviation works so that we only start abbreviating after 6 digits. We also changed the abbreviation to always round towards zero so that users will not think they have hit a milestone or can buy an item before they are able to.
In the new version of the PlayerList, we automatically resize the leaderboard’s max size based on the size of the window that the game is running in. This means if you resize the window the playerlist height will adjust to be no more than 50% of the window height.
Let us know what you think of the changes!
