It's still in progress but step 1 of the web site update is up now.

This is for the main pages at http://moi3d.com/ , you may need to hit "reload" or the F5 key if you have a cached old version.

More coming...

Looking as clean and simple as MoI's interface there Michael.
No fuss website, just the way I like them :)

Cheers

One thing i would try to avoid though is using serif font type, that kind of makes it look a little old for me...

why not use a simple sans-serif font, clean and elegant, don't over complicate the graphic with a serif font

Hi Dave, it looks like Chrome is using part of the new page and part from its cache.

Please try pushing F5 or possibly Ctrl+F5, that should force it to load the new content instead of using the cached content, does that fix it?

Seriously Michael i would consider sans-serif font, you don't see any other big website really that uses serif fonts, they are mostly reserved for prints not for screen text.

take a look at , adobe, autodesk, luxolgoy, rhino...cnn... since moi is all about simplicity it should not use serif font type.

In any case... I like the serif font.

Hi olio, re: serif / sans-serif, the sans-serif just seemed to have a more clinical and sterile feel to it, I wanted to try something with a bit more warmth.

But I'm still experimenting.

What I actually want to use is Cambria which is part of a new font pack that Microsoft has put out since Vista, which has kind of muted serifs.

What I may do is fall back to a sans-serif font if Cambria is not available, rather than falling back to the generic serif.

Hi Pilou,

> with some normal bars menu and open tabs ;)
> And some other on the bottom bottom :)

Yes, but that's pretty common for a web page to not always fit on just 1 screen.

That's what the scroll bar on the right-hand side is for! :) Just grab it and scroll down to see the rest of the page.


I am going to be doing an overhaul of the content there as well, this first pass was more on the overall layout.

But I don't think it will be possible for me to put all the information for the main web page into one single 17 inch screen, that's a huge constraint.

This web page is more like a document containing information about MoI, it is not so much like an application web page like Google's main page or something like that. So similar to many documents it may have more information than fits on just one 17 inch screen and you will need to scroll to see the rest of it.

- Michael

Yes but it's better if the first page has no scrolling :)
And yes it's always a task to make a web page !
Bon courage! :)

Glad to see you are updating your site Michael.

Have to say I'm with Olio and prefer a sans serif font. I would also suggest replacing the 3 images with some new ones. Perhaps some images of more complex models that make it clear that MoI is a serious application. The 2 left hand images are beginner level stuff in my opinion.

Anyway keep up the good work. Once I'm a bit more familiar with MoI I'm quite keen to make some video tutorials as it's pretty thin pickings at the moment. Mine will have audio and be 1280 x 800 in resolution. I'm keen to promote MoI to my Cinema 4D mates and at my web site C4D Cafe.

Thanks Nigel, yup definitely those images are going to be replaced - this first pass is just to get a new overall style and layout, I have not got to updating the actual content yet.

I've tweaked the wiki styling to be more in line with the main page now:
http://moi3d.com/resources

So that leaves just the forum still needing some style attention.

I just did the first round of updates to the forum, just visual styling tweaks. Please let me know if you see any problems.

Still have a bit more to do on it.
