    Hi, i'm making a mobile gameand i'm totally noob with css, i want to make a simple UI for my game. Is this new system better optimized compared to the old one? is it easier? i do not want to code, that is why i think the old one is better for me. Do i need to code something in this new system?
    Thanks...

    That's great and all, but what about particles and the UI? How does one go about using Shuriken on the old UI system or VFX graph on the new UI system?

    Thanks much!! Been looking forward to this to see how it might fit in our new titles. One comment for the designers:

    If you were better able to use the descriptive images here as opposed to the iconography that you currently use, it would be so extremely helpful. Hell, make these images a tooltip or something because this clearly illustrates what you're going to get whereas the icons simply do not.
