Maininstruction readout colors

Postby aihnsa » Mon Apr 18, 2016 8:13 pm

I've been doing a lot of exploring, and a frustration that has emerged multiple times is that the white letters and numbers of the maininstruction readout wash out against white or biege planets so that I 1) can't read them at all and have to go to console or 2) have to squint quite a bit to see them. The ability to set them to a color that would wash out less often would be very helpful. Likewise, being able to color your readouts could help you distinguish between them quickly in combat or other contexts.

I have issues with this also. I rotate 3rd person view to under the surface to be able to read it. I need to post some screenshots on how hard it is to read.

This is causing me a real problem, as well, especially when Gas Giant skimming, because usually I skim for Tritium and Deuterium in white areas of the planet and this just drowns out the maininstruction panel altogether. Also, the Grav Anchor indicator disappears, completely washed out by the planets surface colour.

Maybe if those readings could have a place holder box with black background could be nice.
