PotatoEngineer's Slapdash Approach

[1]

Left (35%): name,stats,messages,item,extradirs,location,itempanel,qd,equipextras,new,tags,build
Center (unspecified width): map
Right (unspecified width): abilities,effects,comms,repeater,equip

It is the best because it is mine, but it mostly came as a series of tweaks rather than a search for the Best Possible Layout. It's fairly good for my widescreen monitor, and does a decent balance between stuff on the left and stuff on the right. I also stick my PotatoConsole as the bottom item on the left.
