Whisper Colors...

This seems a little backwards, imo...why leave the garish pink color for people who are your friends and the nice, cool blue color for those who aren't? It just doesn't seem to make any sense to me...I suggest a switch at next maintenance...who's with me! b:victory

    I can't even read the blue. Guess I'll become a bit more anti social. It's a very hard color to read for me, a way to customize it would be wonderful. As it is, I'll pretty much have to give up using whispers.

    I know some people that are color blind, this will make the game a great deal more difficult.

    Ya, I'm not color blind as far as I know, but some types of text are far more difficult for me to read than others. Blue is least affected by color blindness so it should be the least problematic text color, but the dark blue (and any dark color) blends into the background of a tinted window (which happens to make other text colors much easier to read).

    So maybe keep the idea of different colors (so you know which ones to ignore) but make them easier to read? Like a nice non-pink color for friends, and then the garish pink for non-friends?

    This is only for the ones that DONT know.

    you can increase the size of the font to huge proportioins and 8olden it too. In addition the color of the chat8ox can 8e changed as well to darker or lighter.

    thats for those having pro8lems reading the text and DONT know a8out it.

    If you still cant read it in gigantic, 8old letters, with dark 8ackground, then you have 8igger pro8lems to worry a8out, and no one 8ut a medical proffessional would 8e qualified to help you.

    My problem isn't not being able to read it, it's not wanting to see that pink color...It was annoying enough just starting, and now it has become increasingly so. This color change is a good idea, but needs to be flipped around. At least, that's what I believe.

    Or they could just let us customize our own colors. For a game that gives as much character customization as this one, you would think they would grasp the importance of UI customization yet they completely missed the mark there.

    I hate this dark blue color, is not good for view, if you have dark background PAM, KILLING EYES!

    Only two ways:
    1- Return to pink
    2- Hability to change colour

    I for one am color blind. Its VERY hard for me to see blues and reds.

    On the other hand though, its even harder for me to see that pink whisper color as well.

    The ability to customize colors would make me a very happy player.

    just make it that you can't make any text remotely close to red (for announcements)

    and give warnings when you end up making two texts the same color.

    The pink might be a bit garrish, but for me the blue is all but illegible - so I'll stick with the pink, thanks.
