Steam's new library interface. I hate it. I like certain features of it, like the ability to search for or hide games, which I think existed but it wasn't particularly visbible. But overall, I hate it. I can't seem to find any way to revert it either.

Yep, I hate the new Steam library too.  Holy hells what a busy laggy nightmare, who over at Valve thought this was a good idea?

At least I can clean most of it up by deleting the "shelves", but that still leaves the recent updates banner at the top.

And the new view for games is terribly organized, like, wow, how did anyone come to the conclusion that this was a good change?

I do like the improvements to the search and hide, so like Akura, I don't think everything about it is terrible, but just goddamn why.

Edit: Okay, now I'm pissed.  What they've done to the workshop ui element is absolutely unforgivable.  They moved it halfway down the screen and reduced it to a single item on display.  That is disrespectful as hell to the modders who create additional content for the game.  How fucking dare they.

The workshop tab was already halfway down the screen in the old format. Now there's a tab for it at the very top of the screen.

I'unno what everyone's complaining about. My sidebar's still there, all's right with the world.

I can confirm. It's in the toolbar at the top of the game's page, after "Guides" and before "Support", perfectly visible.

Much less visible than the large and eye-catching button it had before, though.

Yeah, anyone claiming it's anywhere near as accessible as it was before is just a bad design apologist lol

Not the tab, the great big section directly below the DLC segment on the old UI, the one that has the workshop insignia and the three featured mods on it.  THAT has been renovated into a single featured mod that actually requires me to scroll down half a screen to see, and THAT is the problem.  They've gone from putting those featured mods right up near the top so they get visibility and attract attention to having them shoved off to the side below the normal view area, where they won't attract attention.  That is what is unforgivable here.

edit: And further, the toolbar used to be a nice small thing down the side, that had all those same tabs in a nice compressed easy to read and use list, and now it's sprawled across the screen directly below the great big game banner, that is at least 50% larger than it was before.  Why is it so big?  I need a great big advertisement for a game that's already in my library?

Probably a lot of these designers have really huge screens and everything looks perfectly good to them. Heaven forbid it be optimized for mere mortals with their 1080p displays and smaller.

Everything's big now because they assume you're viewing it in a 48 inch 4K display like they are, and it was clearly too small before.

I haven't seen it, but now I'm having a moment of terror imagining Big Picture mode as the default. BP is great for what it's designed for... which is controller navigation on a TV.

I honestly kinda regret buying a 4k monitor, mostly cause it's largely featureless, outside of the 3840x2160 resolution.

And yeah, the new library update's trash, and is laggy even on my top-of-the-line computer. Good thing the notebook didn't install the update yet.

Valve is really putting a lot of effort into shitting the bed with Steam lately.

I honestly can't figure out why everybody's complaining, other than the 'they changed it so it sucks'


EDIT: Though for whatever reason there's like a half dozen uninstalled games in my library I don't think I've ever seen before
