Check out the new mouseover tooltips on the links in the figure gallery.  Let us know what you think.  This is the first of many changes in store as we roll out what we are working on with the fleet builder integration.

NEW 7/25/07 - We just went live with our AJAXified version of the gallery.  You'll notice no more page loads when conducting searches.  We left some nonfunctional parts of the fleet builder additions in the gallery results to let people see some of how we plan to incorporate the fleet builder once it is finished.

Let us know what you think.

Looks great. This feature is really spiffy, and will be great for the fleet builder.

Awesome! Makes looking stuff up just a tad faster. Personally I think it's fantastic!

May want to make a link to a page without the mouse-overs for our friends on dial-up though... those pop-ups will be hell on'em.

Very handy!  One thing i did find though is if you hover from one to the other it can get confused and "stick" on a particular image, but otherwise brilliant!

A major improvement in usability. No more clicking and closing windows when it can be seen right there. Great job.


Hey, buddy, I lost my legs in the Clone Wars, can ya spare a little force?

One suggestion I could make: show the affiliation icon when you hover over ships...I noticed this was missing. All the other stats are present in the picture except that...otherwise good stuff.

Looks great. You read my mind. I was playing with something like this the other night. The gallery keeps getting better. I'm anxious for the fleet building to be completed.

Yeha that mouse over is really tight, aside from the aforementioned lag when switching too fast (it happens rarely). The coloration of each stat helps immensely when you get down the chart a bit and can't see the column titles.

I'm anxious to see what this fleet builder can do.

I must say, considering this is THE only SWPMTCG site with a gallery, you guys have done amazing, it's better than what Wizkids themselves could do, I'd bet.
