    Hi,

    Thought I'd post a quick thread to point out some of the positives about the new navigator.

    It's new, it's modern and it's currently working just fine and attracting our users online. It appears to be processing a lot faster to say it was a rush-job.

    But why have we put it up just now? Well, we've actually wanted this navigator for a while, just it for some reason felt overwhelming to code, and boredom grew so it got left behind. But now we need it more than ever, Habbo have disabled the old navigator in their current revisions, which means we simply cannot update without using the new navigator - we don't want to have to leave the hotel behind, we want to continue bringing in more and more features that we're currently missing or that Habbo are adding.

    Habbo are currently working their arses off to I guess "re-build" their community, check the Twitter of the developers:

    Macklebee on Twitter (Retweeted by the official @Habbo)
    Macklebee on Twitter (Two hours ago, as of this post).

    We want to be able to stay up-to-date, so to do that we need this navigator. But think about it, the navigator is extremely simple to use, easier to view 10 rooms from each category at a time and faster. In a couple of weeks people will forget they've even caused a fuss about the navigator.

    I will be posting a poll in a day or two in a news article to see peoples opinions on the navigator in numbers rather than pathetic rants.

    But just remember, we asked what the community wanted and you chose the navigator.

  5. Honestly don't see why people are shitting themselves about the new navigator. The design is much better and cleaner than the previous one. People just need to get accustomed to change.

    If you want to have only the top rooms, click that and it'll only show that category.

    Just need to upload a patch so I can change the orders of categories, as it seems right now people are using the opposite to what I expected.

    Also I need to get that room category update thingy, so people actually categorize their rooms.

    Navigator fixes:
    - A few categories that were always automatically hidden are no longer automatically hidden.
    - Users will now be reminded to change their room category (old rooms only).
    - Categories can now be adjusted in position.
    - Fixed an issue when creating rooms.

    (Coming tomorrow most likely).

  32. I feel like I would be the only one to admit that I like the new Habbo Navigator. Just hate scrolling down to each category, but I might just do Saved Searches.

  41. I like the way the navigator is now in catagories for certain rooms, so you can close the sections you aren't bothered about - but what would make this better would be when you reload the client, the sections stay closed instead of reopening after a reload.

    Two fixes on the way:
    • Each category in "All Rooms" will now only show rooms with users. (Should of been done first tbh, didn't realize Habbo did this too).
    • "Rooms Where My Friends Are" will now ignore where you are (unless users are in there).

  45. They shit themselves over the previous navigator, and they're going to now. It's something we have to listen to for a while until people get used to it.

    Nonetheless, great job on the release.
