View Full Version : Unique colors for every trading route for better visibility

So I was watching the AnnoCast and I saw the UI for the trading routes (I know it's not final). It seems like the people at BlueByte really payed a lot of attention to visibility and visual feedback in the UI.
But a small improvement that came to my mind is to provide every trading route with a unique color. The color of these trading routes would then be visible in that ship bar and other ship menus so that you can easily see which ship is in which trading route.

It's not a big deal, but I thought I'd mention it anyway.

Sounds like a good idea, i'll forward it to the devteam!

Good idea!
Making it custimizable is even better.

Yeah I was just about to add that. The customization also allows you to code for istance: cloths white, wine red... An additional layer of saying which route does what :D

Yeah, I would like to see that. I'd probably assign a different colour to types of goods of every civilization tier. And maybe two other colours for buying/selling and for ships travelling between sessions.

Making every trade route have a different colour would be a headache for me. Let's make it customizable.
