I’ve been acclimatising to the new overview icons, and generally like them. (Particularly after the wreck changes.) My main problem recently has been differentiating players in amongst wrecks, asteroids and what not. I’ve taken to flagging pilots with no standing and neutral standing with (after some trial and error) a black background.
That’s an improvement – it makes them stand out if I pay attention in sites or belts, but otherwise blend in so I can continue to ignore them at undock / gates and the like.
I’m now trying to update the background appearance so it is very clear when I can attack another player or not in Empire. That’s one you don’t want to get wrong.
