I'll go for Idea #2 also...

Seems more "balanced" among the other two approaches.

Hi, As I don't have an all singing all dancing state of the art computer, my graphics card is doing sweet fanny addams, so a little eye candy would be nice as long as the option is there to switch it on and off is there. As for options, number two sounds excellent. Thansks very much for allowing us imput on this and for making the effort. Paul

Message 36590 - Posted: 16 Feb 2010, 19:42:08 UTC - in response to Message 36578.  

Hello.

I would like either #1 or #2. but since most of the respondents have stated their desire for screensaver #2, I will support Item #2, as long as there is, at the zoomed-in level, the same data that is present in #1, and there should be a preference to determine whether it zooms in and how long it stays at either level, so both groups can be satisfied. It seems like the best of both worlds. Also, it would be really cool to have a LCARS-style interface : )



As it develops further I'll share what customization options we're considering. I'm going to try for as much detail as possible - Idea 2 will require time spent on a large view as well as a more detailed close-up, so I wouldn't say it will have detail identical to Idea 1. Even so, you get diminishing returns visually as you add more and more detail, so I think you'll be happy with the results at both the zoomed-out and zoomed-in levels.

A few of you seem to like this LCARS interface...I'll have to look into that.

My choice is idea 2. I imagine a kind of Star Trek command screens where continuous data streams appear.

Oooh, you mean the LCARS interface look?

Simply, yes. Think of transitions between crunching spaces, like the hyperspace effect in Star Wars X-Wing Alliance? Would be very identical to Milkyway@home title.

Idea 2 in LCARS style would be awesome!

Definately idea 2, right balance of both and with the zoomed out view of the galaxy it's probably easier to see what's going on within each work unit.

Yes, I would love to see your Idea 2 up and running. I think it would be inspiring to see what is happening and maybe more people would be that much more interested in joining us. Word of mouth and showing other people what we are doing.

Another vote for #2 (and as a Star Trek fan -- LCARS is a plus).

In my opinion, I would like to see #2...Best of both worlds!

I've been thinking about this recently. People on the computing end of the stick need some sort of visualisation, it's the whole 'have to see to believe' thing. Thank god you showed up, huh? :D

Idea #2 seems to be the best one. It shows both everyone's and your own progress in enough detail. It gives a sense of accomplished teamwork, doesn't it?

Looking forward to the final product. Good luck :)

Hi Eric,

I would like idea 1, but #2 is very often mentioned...
I wil not use it as a screensaver but look at it from time to time for a few minutes, as I do with einstein@home, by clicking "play graphics".
Greetings from,
TJ
