Clearer refit screen
« on: October 28, 2014, 03:47:14 PM »

I find that the refit screen can be a challenge to use with ships that have a lot of mounts. Making the base ship black & white and allowing us to zoom in further would be nice to help contrast the various components.  :)

I agree with the zoom (can we pan already? I've forgotten) but I'm not sure about the black and white. Often I look for weapon slots because they are a distinctish grey while the ship is colored.

The problem is that weapons are not black and white, so maybe if the mounts were colored that would ensure they remained visible if the ship was made black and white.

Possible alternatives to B&W:
- Partly transparent ship image
- Glow/outlines for weapons

But whatever is chosen should be on a key toggle or something, I don't want it defacing the pretty ship pictures when I don't need it!
