I don't know who thought it was a good idea to do that, but it is certainly not an improvement.

Still better than nothing, I guess...

Exactly those images were so helpful. And they replaced them with some useless icon. What a stupid decision! Edited by Amrovich

I don't really understand why the change was necessary?

The previous version was fine, at least from my perspective.

I find this one fairly annoying to use... mostly because I feel that the change was completely unwarranted, and I have to waste time getting used to a new set up that is full of, what I see as, dumb user interface choices.

Don't be like facebook and make changes for the sake of changes.

Is there a way to keep going to the game homepage you are browsing with just one click? because honestly I don't understand this change since I suppose anyone will spend more time by browsing from whatever game homepage's mods than by going to the main homepage to switch games. So while now it's great and faster to switch games, browsing mods from the same game (which I supposed was the main purpose of this site) has become quite... "annoying?"

Streptococo wrote: Yes I read the news and seen the picture you are referring to. But to my understanding That's 2 clicks, not 1 like before. and that's why I made this comment.

Whatever I guess It's time to use old right click open new tab like in those old sites

Instead of clicking the Nexus Mods logo, you instead click the game name to return to the front page of that game site. Still one click.

I didn't ask anything; I want to recover the old version . You put us before the fact accomplished with no choice but to accept like as Panurge sheeps.

Signed, a longtime user very dissatisfied

Hi Chev,

happy to clear that up: this is not a change in the design.

The search service struggled momentarily (probably because a lot of people were testing it) and thus failed to display the previews correctly. This should be back to normal now - if it isn't for you, again, that is not part of the new design.

The previews are still there just as before as you can see here: https://imgur.com/a/Xt1dIAM

Not huge fan of these changes, navigation top bar is barely visible, notifications have no thumbnails, mod tracking is moved (couldn't even find where). I really liked that the site theme was blue for Skyrim, green for Fallout4 etc, now it's all gone and looks like mobile webpage.

Get rid of the dumb black bar, you have cut the screen by a third. With the address bar above it and the stupid black bar a third of the screen is gone. This is a phone, not a lot of room to begin with.

Hate it hate it hate it. Notifications are now harder to use. As a modder with limited time the previous design was great. Everything accesible from one location. I could quickly see how many notifications I had to review and answer.


You know what you have done? You created windows 8 with its tablet style menu. You are forcing a user interface no one was asking for and majority don’t want. And you are seeing the same backlash as windows 8, which is why windows 10 replaced it. We are tinkers, modders, hobbyists , geeks who don’t need a dumbed down system. Nor enjoy one.


Give us at least a toggle to switch to previous menu system. This is awful.
