    Savage Worlds 2021-02-16 update No more Theme!

    Where are the images in the left menu for theme like Hell on Earth and Ripper Resurrected? What about those of Savage Worlds Swade rules.. Now we only see words.
    A new design?

    From Discord:

    Moon Wizard: All the rulesets have been switched to textual buttons for the sidebars. The overhead of graphical icons created a lot of complexity for adding new record types, theming and new ruleset creation.

    I spent hours making all those side buttons
    My players just defeated an army, had a dogfight with aliens, machine-gunned the zombies, stormed the tower, became Legendary and died heroically

    Yours are still on combat round 6

    I understand why they decided to go for only text boxes but I really loved the graphical side buttons, I wish there where a toggle so that you could choose

    Sadly it takes away some of the style of the rulesets. Now every button looks the same. Even the skin of Beast&Barbarians that already had text buttons now shows the same buttons like the Savage Worlds default skin. And they do stand out because its another design. The pictures on those buttons where a great thing to make the buttons different and to give the Settings a bit more "life". I am sad that they are gone. Why take something away that added flavor to the games?

    I agree I'd also like for Fantasy Grounds to quit asking me if I want to try the new menu system. I tried it, didn't like it, quit asking.

    I checked out a few of the other themes and it is possible to put a theme to the buttons. Not saying all old things will get updated (I think a few devs aren't around anymore?), but it is possible to change the look.

    Though I'd prefer a toggle as well.

    I complain this graphical step back (I opened another thread to mourn the loss of the images on the sidebar: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forum...er-last-update) )
    Additionally, I note you that in other rulesets the 'Decal desktop image' option is still there, even after this update

    You should be able to customize the text used for the side buttons. Its not very hard, can probably figure out and write up an example and how to guide.

    Regarding the sidebar button changes,

    @icecrmman,
    That's not part of the built-in system. Did you enable some sort of extension to change menus?

    It's the D&D 2E alternative text/drop-down menu system.
