color of caption in operations window

Post by greatUnknown » Wed Jan 15, 2014 12:36 am

The captions on all operations are very legible [e.g. Nuclear Missle [13] ] in a white font - except
for the Drop Pod caption which is a dark grey and very difficult to read. Can I change this?

Not sure about the custom colors but you can change to the one of the tier colors ( white"0"/blue"1"/yellow"2") in operations *.xml
As for drop pods they are grey becouse you dont have any

And if its not what you want to change you can try with /core/languages/..../operations.xml there you would need to change the "value=" i.e:

Code: Select all

<entry name="Scan" value="Satellite Scan"/>
You can check for examples in factions.xml and technology.xml

Tested that; it's not the reason. See the attached [trimmed] screenshot.

Note that there are 2 drop pods available - if you can see it. Nevertheless, the line is grayed out.

They are grey because you can't use them as the other operations by clicking on them. Drop pods are used as specific order for units. If you give a unit the order to drop from space while having available pods one drop pod will be automatically used.

Thank you. That makes sense. OTOH, even if they are different color, they should be more visible.

Did few tests but i didint find any good way to do it, exepct of making operation in operation to link operation :D
But you cant change it in normal means or unless we get some access to *.exe or xml structure ( my opinion atleast) .
