Do you think the new red text above walkers is hard to read?

1.6 implemented a change where the level and icon above zombie heads has changed from white to red.
Do you think this makes the text hard to read?

Figured we need a proper poll so they can get a real clue that this change sucks, makes the game harder to play, and most importantly NOBODY LIKES IT MOST don't like it.

    I started a thread about the new color scheme & @zoson was kind enough to set this up to get feedback.

    As I stated there, I play on an iPhone 6S and I almost got jacked by a tank on the challenge simply because I didn't SEE him! The red/black contrasts poorly especially against the brown, woodsy environment.

    Please make the color scheme optional or change it back for the benefit of players who don't have large screens.

    Thanks!

    @zoson I did vote but for some reason it didn't show up right away...

    The reason it was changed is because we now have three groups running around in the missions: survivors, walkers, and raiders (human enemies). We need to distinguish between them. We hear you on the readability front; looking into it.

    Yes, it was fine before. Don't fix it if it ain't broken. KISS.

    Thanks for the quick response @OldGoth another solution other than simply changing it back would be to increase the opacity on the bubble surrounding the text to increase contrast.

    Am I tripping or wasn't there green (blue green) before in addition to white? Maybe just in my dreams....

    I'm sure we are able to tell the factions from the graphics.

    +1 to make walkers again white. I don't mind about rest colours...

    Keep in mind that about 8% of the male population is color blind! I'm not, but dark red is not an easy color to see regardless.

    There are many Pastel colours on the palette. GOLDISH for example, like the "completed" title, is very comfortable to the eye. Or OLIVE green, not to mention KHAKI brown or plain GREY.

    Maybe have them white when they aren't attacking, but turn red when they become aggressive.

    No, I think it looks more ominous with the red coloring.

    I voted no because I play on a tablet mostly and hardly ever use my cell to play.

    I play on 10.1" screen and it makes my eyes bleed!

    Mind you, it goes well with the apparent PMT that some of them seem to have

    I reported it as a bug already for Outpost. I guess I didn't spell it out clearly, but I was hoping it was a temporary thing, not a ready-to-roll-feature. :disappointed:

    As for the map icon color I mentioned I see no reason for the change (and it's annoying me slightly being so bright and attention catching), but it works because the contrast is fine.

    Cannot saw clearly red text above zombies at Episode 13 missions, specially in dark areas. The more harder zombies are, the more important it is to see if they are lv15 or lv20. I got almost to hospital one of my character with no reason just because I couldnt see the level of spawning robocops. In Deadly missions this new red might be crucial.

    Modern computers can display some 16.7 million colors. There are enough text marking colours for players characters, human enemies, zombie enemies, zombie pets and even for unfriendly goats and lambs. Please just go back to usability design machine and product new colour :)
