New UI Idea for TAP NG
So I've been trying to create a new concept UI for the last week and a half now, and while it's still very unfinished in overall presentation, my main ideas are there. Feel free to look at the samples linked below (files are too big for attachments and its best to see them in High Res 1080p).

The main thing I've done is clean up the UI in terms of icons and layout. There's a clear top menu, side menu and a scrolling news thing at the bottom. This is all just conceptual but I based it off the current game and games like Football Manager and Motorsport Manager (games I both love playing). Within the main window, there's also the availability for tabs. This is evident in the marketplace image below.

Secondly, I've added some level of theming. Depending on your airline, the colours of the menu changes. This is evident in samples 1, 2, 3. I'd also want to implement this for the airline manufacturers like Airbus, Boeing, etc.. I know that devs won't be allowed to use real airlines but the theming is still something that I think adds a uniqueness to each players experience, and I hope will be implemented in the final game with the allowance for modding in the real (or custom) airlines. (I also have airline liveries, however, that's just because I like designing liveries). (Note that the images are far from final and so things that are on there will not be accurate. I started with the KLM design since I'm Dutch, but still want to show the theming)

Finally, I want to highlight the overall design language. I've gone for a mainly transparent and boxy feel. This is, of course, a personal choice but I felt that it's a modern look. I know that this may not be everyone's cup of tea, but elements like this are always changeable. I also have custom backgrounds per airline which ideally I'd have animations of the hub airport of the airline. I'm not an animator so I don't know how to do this, but simple polygons should suffice as it's more for the background and to give a dynamic feel.

Hopefully, you guys like what I've done, and if you have any feedback feel free to let me know.

I'd love to take a look, but the links don't work. Wink

My bad Blush 

I fixed the links so they should work now
The links work now. Smile

It sure looks good and fresh. Nice work!

It's still heavily based on TAPv2 of course.
We'll see if we can take on some of the ideas you presented. Wink
Seriously classy, Deja ... thumbs up from me.
