Kingsisle, Since you revanp Firecat Ally do to red and orange colors on the streets, the creatures and their overhead names are camaflouged in. I accidentally get myself in to battle more than I want to. Will you please do things to the creatures so they are noticable to see?

This is a great point. The contrast here might depend on your monitor as well, which we should account for in the UI design. For now, have you tried adjusting the game's settings?

I hadn't noticed that but I think I might have some thing turned off.

Some subtitles on films and TV are like that. They are in white with no background, so you can only read them in dark scenes. Or vice versa.

When you can modify the subtitle text, I usually pick a light color like sky blue or bright yellow, use a grey or black background, and a black outline on the lettering. That seems to work well. But sometimes, the text is on the video permanently, if it's done by the film company and it can't be changed.

Maybe a light color with a black outline?

Spark, I tried making adjustments on my moniter but didn't help. The ceatures and their overhead names remains camouflaged specially Magna Men.

@Spark, the same is also true on Triton Ave. It is now so dark that some of the creatures there are very hard to see.

Normally, I would not have been there but Daily Assignments do send even higher levels there. I have not had a chance to check other areas of WC since all the revamp was finished.

Could screen text (hover text) be modifiable in a similar way to the ways subtitles/captions on TV are modifiable? (Or online videos are also, sometimes, too.)

Then people could set them up to their preference? In the game settings tab?

People have different types of vision.

Just an idea.
