I had a quick look at the new colour chooser and I have to give feedback that it looks cool but really only gives one extra colour option; grey. This is because stripes especially for TEC are tiny. From a aesthetic in game standpoint I don’t see much difference.
Is this colour chooser the first step in a larger feature being tested in this patch perhaps?
Metaphorically, it still feels like I am using colourblind mode restrictions rather than a modern 8k colour pallete that maximises our wonderful monitors capabilities and allows the player to be creative and unique.
I guess if you guys cannot go beyond primary colours then perhaps a coat of arms creator for the icons system? I think stellaris had one of those as well, but war of the roses (a slasher game) did it better.
Another suggestion to allow colour variation would be a tick box for players who it is a challenge to recognise colours for that simply enforces basic colours on that players pc only. This way most people can leave maximum colour variation according to rgb on and enjoy other players creations.
I really do appreciate that you guys took on board feedback and gave it a go though. Thank you for that.
p.s. Really looking forward to trying out all the other changes by having a game. Some of the new changes sound amazing.
P.S.2. Is the minimal colour option meant to show modders work more than anything? So you don't have a pink star destroyer for instance? But a grey one?
