Re: map faction colors




But seriously, I agree. Even non-colorblind people can have difficulty with purple and blue. In PS1 it was better as the purple was a little lighter, so easier to see than in the video. But some nice color customizations are critical.

I may be wrong but even T-Ray have mentioned people with difficulties in recognizing colours. Maybe it was during his Com-link in September?

Red, yellow and teal for the pretty.

Again, this seems like something to let people decide in an options menu. Let people have Blue NC, teal VS and...grey TR? Does anyone have the link to the page where each empire's colour palette was laid out?

Re: map faction colors


The solution the OP suggested is a perfect solution for any color blindness (even monochromacy, for the most part). I am dichromatic, and a friend of mine is as well. I have protanopia and he has deuteranopia. This solution would work for both of us, and still stay true to the faction colors.

I am colorblind, and this solution is perfect!

I like the yellow for the NC instead of the blue. Makes it easier to see. (and I am not even color blind.)

Re: map faction colors


I would agree with changing NC to yellow, they have always has a large yellow presence.

I myself can't tell the difference between the blues and purples.

Re: map faction colors


Just wanted to bring this one up again after watching the GDC video. When he puts on the faction color overlay I assumed it was all NC but just recently found out that there is actually VS in there.

This is the only thing that ever bothered me being color blind because the map is so important.

Re: map faction colors


an option to choose if you want primary or secondary faction color to use on the map and on any other UI part would be great! just let the people choose for each faction seperately and every kind of colorblindness i´m aware of would be covered.

i am not colorblind, but i happened to run into battle unaware because i thought it was blue when it was purple a lot.

Can't argue with this post so +1.

I have no trouble with blue/purple myself, but neither would it offend me to see blue become yellow to help out those that do.

It could either be a mode or it could just be... doesn't matter what colour the faction avatars are, they're still going to get shot in the face

Re: map faction colors


I agree with this. I'm also colorblind and I couldn't tell the difference between NC and VS territory during the Conference vids.

The yellow is nice, Vanu could also be switched to Teal if they want to keep NC blue.

Re: map faction colors


I've got mild issues with some shades of red (color blindness is a spectrum of severity, fun fact), but could make out the difference on the map if I squint.

My step-brother, however, would never be able to have sorted that one out. I support the yellowification of the NC, even though it'll turn us into the butt of a bunch of coward jokes.

If it's judged that we'd rather turn the VS into a tertiary color for their third-rate empire, I'd be fine with red, blue, and teal on the map, too.

Re: map faction colors


I agree, NC really need to change to the Yellow/Gold for map coverage.

Additionally, friendlies shouldn't be green anywhere in the HUd because Red/Green colorblind folks can't distinguish between friend and foe. From the GDC video we see they made friendlies BLUE which is great, but the health bars on friendlies still appeared green. That might be OK - any R/G colorblind folks think that should be changed?
