The mode can be activated like this: Go to the "View" menu and select the following three menu options:
- Bright visibility spotlight
- Dark surroundings
- Bold visibility spotlight
When I remembered this view mode I thought that it might be a much better default than the current "unmarked" mode. The bright/dark and bold/non-bold display nicely shows the currently visible area.
What do you think?
Never used the bold part, but always the bright vision / dark surroundings setting. First thing I did when starting the game for the first time. :) I think that should be default, the bold is, for me at least, redundant & unnecessary.ReplyDelete
Yep, looks great.ReplyDelete
Nice, wish I'd found that before. Please make default.ReplyDelete
I use the bright always. Certainly should be default.ReplyDelete
Bold is redundant in my opinion. Highlighting by brightness level is enough.ReplyDelete
Also I noticed that you use font smoothing. Great! But will it be sub-pixel smoothing or that?
Ok, the defaults have been changed :-) Bold is still not a default.ReplyDelete
You know what I was thinking? It would be cool if when the colours were 'bright/bold', it represented daylight or torches, and if when the colours are 'dull/non-bold', it represented night. I think it would improve the atmosphere a lot.... there would be a different 'feel' to running around a city at night as opposed to during the day...ReplyDelete
I always use these, not only in JADE, very handy.ReplyDelete
I second what Lyle says, depending on the phase of the day, you could desaturate the RGB values by like, -30 or something, or introduce more purple and blue. I'd love to sneak around a city at night with that look!ReplyDelete
