Industry Item/Tile Colour Contrast
« on: November 28, 2018, 09:24:09 AM »

Would it be possible to add a high(er) contrast border or highlight to the installed items on colony industry tiles please?
Or some other means of making the these items stand out a bit more when installed?

I've been having some problems picking out the red coloured cores and forges etc. They seem to not be quite as distinct as the other colours, and blend into the tile graphics quite well.

Tangentially related, one of the yellow space backgrounds makes it hard to see the Neutrino aura around your fleet.  (Yes, I finally played around with it a few times.)  If there is a spike toward a certain direction, it becomes too hard to see because the bright yellow cloudy background at that spot in the center mutes out the blue aura.

As for topic, I sometimes had a non-trivial time finding special items used by an industry, like the corrupted nanoforge seen in the above pic.
