As I understand it in any space battle on any map, red numbers mean you are taking damage, yellow means the enemy takes damage but what about black numbers? I have seen this a couple of times as well but it's always enemies taking damage. I am just curious to know if this means it is a special type of damage (kinetic maybe?) or if its just a aesthetic resolution to a specific background or effect? Apologies in advance if I got some of the gaming terminology wrong.
