For the most part I like the dark palette, however, certain things are extremely difficult to see. I've attached an example from an air ops dialog from Chains of War. The aircraft that are not ready are in red, which against the dark background is hard to see. I don't think this is because I am partly colorblind but it might be. Dark on dark text is usually tough to see regardless of color.

Sorry about the huge size picture originally uploaded. This is a much closer size (screenshot resolution doesn't play nice from windows in Parallels to the Mac.

+1.

While the light-on-dark UI is pretty good for the most part, it tends to be links that are dark-on-dark, e.g. stores links in aircraft loadouts.

I agree. Overall I really like it. Just a few things that are hard to see.

Not just you, was first thing that I noticed even watching the preview stream last week, the dark on dark text being harder to read, idk maybe it's just time for me to get glasses. ;)

Then again...wtf, below pic actually slightly more readable then on-screen version. ;)

Seconds this. Used links in db viewer magenta that is not good color with black background. If selected ok. If not difficult to see.

I really like the dark theme. But blue/dark blue and red on dark background is for me hard to see. It could be my mild color blindness kicking in.

Agreed, that red text is totally illegible on my OLED.... The blue is better but the contrast so poor you really have to stare at it.

I would like to be able to edit some of the colors such as path lines, hover/datablock text, etc. Maybe there is a way to do it and I haven't found it yet, or maybe it can be done by editing files but I haven't tried to go down that rabbit hole yet.

For instance, if using the Stamen map view, it is almost impossible to see white aircraft paths over top of the nearly white/off white Stamen map.

We fixed the dark-red-on-black issue with the current build. Is there something else that is hard to stand out?
