Sample Map Overlay Problem

Postby Mooncrest » Mon Aug 17, 2020 3:02 pm

I am trying to place a new colony on Moon-19 in the Menzel 3 system.

I have probed the Moon and a now trying to examine the Sample Map Overlay to choose a good position for my new colony.

Version 1.51002 seems to have something wrong with the display of the map.

in the examples I was filtering for Iron; but the view is similar for any resource.

This is the view I get before the map appears:

and this is the view after the map is displayed:

and here is a view as I move closer to the surface:

As you can see the grey background drowns out the colours of the map.

I do not remember this being a problem before, but I probably did not use version 1.5002 the last time I started a colony.

Did a test on the same moon.
I get the same result as before on 1.5 clients, sun light seems to affect overlay. Where it shines it gets very bright and everything looks white/grey-ish fog.
Shadow areas/no sun light gets very dark. Same issue as where the sun shines, just that its black instead of white that "overpowers" the overlay colors.
Tested with 1.4 client as well, which is working perfectly for me, overlay is not affected in anyway by sun light.


1.5 sun shines:

1.5 shadow areas:

1.4 overlay is not affected by light in any way, colors are even all over:

Good observation. I will make sure to remind Jam when her gets to working on the updated client. He still has not said when that will be.

Thanks Loke. I'll try my version of 1.4 (1.4076) again.

My overlays have always been like this. So I am guessing it is normal.
