The new website is really nice! I like that you avoid images for style. :D

As a person who is in web development for 12 years and fan of Albert's art... I'm also on a hype train :) Really want to see how it will go.

What about also unifying it all somehow with the forum and wiki as well?

Or some method to link our forum & wiki accounts to our factorio account.

For me the unifying theme was the orange headlines on a darker background. The orange very Factorio-like and seems to be a lot less now

Just keep the downloads links the same or you break a lot of stuff.

What I like a lot about the current site is that it's not a mess of javascript and megabytes of large external resources being included. It's just google analytics, jquery via google, and google youtube at the moment (which sounds like it's bad, and it could be better, but it's pretty good compared to many other sites!). I hope the new site can keep that experience up :)

Related: this page with lightweight alternatives to Google analytics was recently voted very highly on hacker news, perhaps that's worth considering: https://lwn.net/SubscriberLink/822568/61d29096a4012e06/ (hacker news comments: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=23560823 )

That's a good question actually, Wube could take a few more weeks now and use the original deadline.

This CSS tutorial has both shadows and a triangle in CSS. Combine it with the above poster's solution for the square+triangle.

Do you consider updating the Early Access info box on Steam? While it won't be there for long anymore, it could say the set release date there. Also it still mentions plans for a long-form campaign in 1.0.

Looking forward. I always loved the dark background texture on your website, that one will be missed. Hope the detailed background seen on the new design isn't too busy/distracting, especially for new visitors.

100% agree with the framework bloat problem. It's like you cannot make a website these days without 5000 node.js dependencies, absolute madness.

One concern I have is that some of the images you show imply the new design is going to be a lot more "dark theme" (ie very bright text on very dark background) than the current design, which (FFF pages aside) is currently mostly "bright text on middle gray" or "middle gray on darker gray".
ImageImage

I am aware of how popular white-on-basically-black themes are, but I am not alone in getting serious eyestrain from even short periods of them. Indeed, when reading the FFF pages I am soon (within 60 seconds or less) seeing afterimages of lines and developing an eye-ache. I never said anything because that site is little-used enough to not really matter. However, if you switch the forums or mod portal over....I am going to have a hard time using them. As it is they are already close to the limit my eyes can tolerate, so there is not a lot of wiggle room.

What exactly does the 1.0 release or the end of Early Access signify? No more developement? No more updates? Or just bugfixes?

I am a bit sad that the whole development ride is coming to an end. 1.0 is right around the corner! I hate to think "ah man, that's the last FFF."

It is coming... some day. :cry:
