Request: color change "for trade" icon

Recommended Posts

ICEdaddy

I am red-green color blind, as are ~7% of males.

 

I can't tell the difference between the 2 colors of the "for trade" icon and can't tell whether its on or off. This makes trading a pain.

 

The "want" icon (heart shaped) works great b/c one of the colors is bluish and the other red or green. Love it. Easy to distinguish. Blue vs. red or blue vs. green are super easy to distinguish.

 

I would love to be able to read my flags on the for trade icon and suggest you change it to a similar color scheme as the "want" icon. Typically one setting color in the red/green/brown family and the other in the blue/purple family would work for almost all color blind people.

 

Thanks!

Hey ICEdaddy,

 

Thank you for your feedback!

 

I'll send this over to the development team for review. Hopefully the color scheme for these options can be updated a bit to be easier to distinguish between each other.

 

Please let us know if you have any other suggestions!

Thanks!

The next one is another he likely isn't even aware of, the red/green "Done" button, which has come up before!

I don't know a lot about color blindness, but I do know that there is more than just red/green.  Red/green is the most common, though.

 

When it comes to "buttons" in game, if they cannot also change shape, then perhaps (as they all feature two colors in either position) it should just always be one light color, one dark color, and have them swap when the button is selected.  Possibly making them black and whiteAgain, though, I am not colorblind myself so if I've said something stupid, please pardon and correct me.

I support this idea for my colorblind friends out there. Accessible gaming should always be a top priority for developers!
