when i set a course in game, the next gate in line will be marked in pale yellow to set it apart from the normal white gates on my overview. there is no other visual indication.
i think this is really bad, and it annoys me since i first played this game. why this poor contrast? yellow-white would be bad if it was a highly saturated yellow. but pale yellow-white? is this applied sadism?
now i realize that not every player has a problem with this design choice. maybe its my poor eye sight. maybe its my hardware (though through different models during my eve career). i do not think this matters. it is a fact that the color we have now gives some players (at least one, me) a hard time, and it is also a fact that there is simply no easy identifiable reason for this uneconomical game design.
so please! change that color. pick a color, that is easily differentiated from white.
to make better distinguishable for players with even less perfect eye sight then i have, it would be GREAT to also have a slightly different icon for the selected gate. a perfect solution would be to make the color customizable with the options AND a slightly different icon for the marked gate.
but really, just a different color with a higher contrast already would go a LONG way.
so… pretty please. do eet.
