This is really a separate issue. However, it relates to custom pull points.
Same hex; same moment in time. No changes made.
Why is the "100" pull point background color different in the traffic signals view and on the main map view?
What does that background color convey to the player? What does that difference convey, if anything?
If I were to guess, the color change is based on the logistics overlay being displayed at the time--different for the main map and the traffic signals view.
On the main map, green is for the current points view (i.e. current value); pink is for the preview points view (i.e. future value).
However, are there any differences being communicated to the player with respect to the custom pull points value given those two overlays? How is the current value different from the future value, when the player can change it immediately during this orders phase?
Said another way, is the state of current logistic points, as opposed to preview logistic points, important to the player with respect to the assignment of the custom pull points?
Per the main map, the custom pull point value is not displayed on initial points, used points, or the bottlenecks overlay. No background color or number is used.
Per the next image, the color in the traffic signals view is not always green.
Guessing again, Start Turn custom pull points (i.e. past) as opposed to Preview custom pull points (i.e. future)?
Per the main map, background colors are current versus future. Traffic signal view colors are past versus future.
To make the main map view consistent with traffic signal view, the past custom pull points should be on the initial points layer with a green background.
Past custom pull points assigned, in comparison to preview (i.e. future), should be helpful information.
If it is working and intended as I wrote above, then I'll make a new post in Suggestions about the potentially more consistent alternative. Otherwise, noted here regarding custom pull point issues.
