UI color change settings - Also helps colorblind users

Recommended Posts

UI Quality of Life Changes;

These suggestions would benefit all users and also assist colorblind users.

Roughly 8 percent of men are colorblind. Many users would like to change the color of certain things to make it easier.

We don't even necessarily need a "colorblind" mode. We can dye our armor any color we want right? Why cant we do a few simple things that would benefit the whole community, and hopefully resolve colorblind players issues as well. I myself am color blind and play BDO everyday. These are the things I notice that would really be beneficial to not only color blind users, but the community as a whole.

Under the Settings - User interface,

1. Minimap - Ability to change enemies, quest enemies color.

Give us the option to change Minimap colors. Specifically for enemies (red). I am color blind myself, and I cannot see the current red. I can't even see the dots against the background. Essentially, I can only use the mini map, A. When mobs are a quest target and it changes to whatever color that is, or B. for navigation. This is a huge disadvantage as I have no way of telling where enemies are. Essentially my mini map is useless except for just general navigation. It would also give non-coloblind users the ability to change it to whatever they want. This should be the highest priority, as it really does put certain players at a major disadvantage.

2. Chat Colors - Give us the ability to change chat colors for the different groups.

This is not as critical as the minimap, but it would be nice to be able to change the colors of each group of chat. Again, the whole community benefits, but it also really helps colorblind people.

3. Change player name settings - Show/hide, font size, colors

I don't know about anyone else, but its hard to read player names for me. Would it be difficult to allow us to change the font size their name appears and the color of their name? Maybe be able to hide their guild name, title, family name if we want?  I don't really care about someone's family name(i know some people would) or the persons title. It just makes each of the 4 to small for me to read quickly. It would be nice if players could hide/show what they want. Its to much clutter. Having the ability to even show/hide the ones we want would be a huge step.

Agree with a lot of this. I am not color blind, but still have issues with seeing a lot of things clearly and my tv is 60". Text sizes in crafting, player names, general npc chat bubbles, map icons etc., really need an overhaul. It is severly lacking just some basic Qol that isn't difficult to add on xbox. I end up with headaches everyday because of severe eyestrain in this game due to poor UI management and bad lighting.
