White text/icons/labels should be dimmed

Pure white text on a black background should be used sparingly in design. In users with astigmatism (like me) it can cause a distracting halo effect on text, and in general user attention is drawn towards higher-contrast elements on a screen. This was fixed previously for some other elements being too bright.

These are some elements which are currently white and should be dimmed:

  • Misson text (pictured) is white, unlike similar text views
  • Highlight on Agents/Guests/Offices/Hangars active tab in-station, this is always visible in-station and almost always isn’t what the player wants to be looking at
  • Icons (but not text) in Locations tab are too white/bright
  • Text in contract creation confirmation page
