FFXIV News - Dev Blog: Better for U and I

From the Dev Blog.

Greetings,

Ridrina here! Have you read over all the new information that was revealed at the Fan Festival in Las Vegas? It was packed with various information, such as the new World Visit system, the second installment of Rival Wings, and more. Of course, in addition to those new features, we'll also have improvements to existing systems as well. Today we'll be focusing on those that are set to arrive in Patch 4.5!

Updates to the Mount and Minion Roulette
As I'm sure you know, we added the favorites feature in Patch 4.4. How many of you have enjoyed the ease of locating your favorite minions and mounts more quickly now? I bet you've thought to yourself "I wish I had a roulette just for my favorites!" Well, your wish is our command!

In Patch 4.5 you'll be able to make it so the roulette options will only select from those marked as favorites!

Personally, I've been waiting for this feature for a very long time! As a minion and mount collector, I'm so happy to have more organization and customization!

HUD Transparency Settings
Speaking of customization, you'll be able to set the transparency of individual HUD elements in the HUD layout settings!

It'll be useful for times you want specific UI elements displayed, just not standing out as much.

In this image, the inventory screen is set to 50% transparency, main menu at 30%, and currency at 0%. If you make it too transparent though, it may become too difficult to view the UI, so you'll want to fine tune it. The green bar in the settings menu shows the amount of transparency applied.

Filters added to the Challenge Log
We've added the following filters to the Challenge Log
・ Display All
・ Display Complete
・ Display Incomplete

This will be really useful for tracking Eureka challenge log entries!

There's also some mini-improvements coming to sound-related features.

Alarm's sound category changed from BGM to System Sounds
Added sound effect when a Ready Check is initiated

You'll be able to hear the alarm's sound even if you have the BGM turned off with this updated setting. Ready checks will be much more apparent with this change, too!

On the subject of improvements, I've heard rumors that the Screenshot Alliance is also doing something related to Group Pose... I wonder what they're planning this time around? Please look forward to it!
