I see the download view has undergone some changes today. How am I supposed to thank a creator now if I don't wan't to also make a comment? There is no button for that in the new design.

The thanks button has moved to the files tab, and you can still click thanks without commenting.

I can't see a way to favorite something anymore, and I've looked on all tabs. Has that option been removed?

Look across to the right, it's in the Infobox.

Ah, I see it now! It's not very obvious, especially if you're used to seeing it near the "Thanks" option.

Now that I see that box, I'm glad that it shows if you've downloaded the item or not. That's useful.

Oh, thank you! I couldn't find it anywhere. I thought it had been removed.

This is such weird timing. The Nexus site that I use for my Skyrim mods just did an overhaul on the 12th. I feel so discombobulated with all the changes (and the obvious smart-phone centric design, BLEH). At least MTS still looks nice--and I can read it without getting a headache.

I hope T considers making this new layout optional, like the site update. It makes the interface of uploads so so busy and eye-assaulting, and viewing pictures is much more obnoxious this way. I don't want the different sizes, makes it harder to focus, pulling your eyes towards the bigger ones. If I'm browsing I want to decide which pictures I'd like to see bigger. Don't understand the addition of a button to view the surplus pictures either, much less convenient than the scroll bar. And the descriptions now feel squashed or something, would rather see the side-information above or below it. Over all just feels really jumbled and makes me not want to look at uploads at all. Click on something, remember there's a new interface, go "UGH!" and decide that nah don't need that upload after all and close it down. I'm sure some people love it, but this curmudgeon would very much like the old one back

I'm not entirely happy with the new layout myself, either. It's rather cluttered and has far too much white space for my liking. I'd appreciate it becoming optional.

I'm mostly just really annoyed about where the "thanks" button is. Everything else I think I could live with, but having to click an extra time to go to a completely different tab just to find it is really very annoying.

I'm really not liking the new downloads layout. I didn't think a change was needed. I've had to look a long time to find the favourite and thanks buttons. I don't like the large box with "(number) more" to show more pics or that some are "greyed out" (particularly on mobile). It's not easy on the eye. Bring back the old layout or make it optional?

I usually thank a creator after downloading so the place of the thanksbutton sounds logical. I am clicking it way more often then before so I like it.
Also I really like the 'open thumbnail gallery'. I'm mostly on my phone and it makes it much easier to view the pictures.

I posted my comments about the new layout in another thread, but I'll copy it over here:

The preview pictures seem to be much bigger as well but don't reach all the way to the right side of the screen (maybe it's just my monitor though), so it creates a strange empty space above the Info box, and the pictures are of different sizes, making it a bit harder on the eyes than it was when they were smaller pictures behind a scroll bar section.

Please don't kill me...


I'd also like the new layout to be optional.

You go to the file area where you will be going to download anyway and 'say Thanks' in green is right below the file you would be clicking.

I don't care for the frosted look of the preview photo or for having to hunt for the 'Thanks' button.

With custom foods and anything else I want to try out in a test hood before knowing if I'm going to keep, it makes it just that much harder to come back and find the thanks button so I can click it. Also, when looking at something and trying to determine if I've ever had it in my game, the already clicked thanks button was a nice way to see that, but now I have to click all over creation to find it. And also, on my own uploads, if I want to see who's pushed "thanks," I have to go hunting for the button for that rather than it being right next to the favorite button so I could easily check both one right after the other. And speaking of, I'm probably far less likely to favorite anything with this layout because it's not sitting right next to the thanks button anymore.

The info box tells you now if you have downloaded something or not.

Nothing happen for me when I click the info button. Are we suppose to click it?
Though I can see if I have downloaded it or not, but that has nothing to do with this infobox.

lol, yes! I saw that. I thought the *box* was just the little blue thing. This is why i said this had nothing to do with the infobox. It is written underneath it.

I had not seen that before seeing your post, so thank you for pointing that out! However, it does not seem to work 100% of the time. There are some older items I know I've downloaded and had in my game some years ago that actually show I've thanked them but do not show that "Downloaded" with the check mark.
