Getting right to the Point.
A screenshot from my Ps4, looking at the FRIENDS TAB.
Can you see it?
Taken off my Ps4, put into gimp, and darkened the Value down passed 60%.
Ah, there we go.
COLOR CONTRASTING & VISUALS
I’ve wanted to talk about this for a while.
But it didn’t seem worth bringing it up.
It still doesn’t.
I feel like people dont have this problem enough to address right now.
(And I’m not talking about the WANT to change colors and huds.
I’m speaking from the point of, some people probably can’t see some things within the game.
Because of the colors they are put next to or against.
Since I checked the topics under COLORBLIND and only got three result.
and two Comments mentioning.
"I would feel bad for people who are red colorblind." by Afius
"I would like colorblind settings added tho." by DhRauta
IF PHG ever does grow and flourish one day.
I want to suggest maybe an Advanced Hud Color Changer in the Video tab under Options.
As I’m sure many have wanted some color changes.
I just want to push the suggestion, to help those that can’t see some things.
LOVING THE GAME, EVEN IF I CAN’T SEE IT
I’ve had to adjust my gameplay style for my handicaps.
I personally cannot see similar colors on top of similar colors.
There is a Red grenade in that Red Map.
But I can’t see it.
It will take more time for me to point it out.
By that time it will have blown up though.
Ah that’s a good chunk of health gone.
I now just panic jump away in hope I don’t actually jump on top of it.
I can see that though.
A bright Red against a Green Landscape.
Again, there are Boar Icons on that Map.
They are Red, on a very similar Red map.
I can’t see them.
But I can see that Icon.
Once I’m close enough for it to appear.
I often find myself spending more time looking for the Boar I killed, then actually making my way to it.
I’ve even said to myself.
"I know it’s over here, just gotta find the icon".
I know some are going to say.
"I can see it just fine".
And that’s fine.
I also know some are gonna say.
"Well I can’t see it either, but whatever I dont use the hud anyways".
And that’s also okay.
But, personally I would like to use a tool that was given to us to use still.
Does it ruin the experience in the end?
But the game is still fun.
I lose my mind with hysteria when I see FT HURL GRENADES AT ME.
Panicking like "NO, MY ONE WEAKNESS!
But as an Example:
This would be my personal color choice to help me out.
Inverted against Dim Red vs Reds on Reds.
I’d go for this just because at least the FT can hide amongst some inverted shrubs and buildings.
But I can at least still see moving objects out in the open against the Dim Red.
I don’t expect to see this change anytime near.
But hopefully if PHG survives this year, maybe it could be considered down the line.
maybe they already addressed this issue.
And Made the colorblind settings in the Main menu.
Jokes on me that it’s Black Text on a Black background so I cant see it anyways.
Still gonna try though
