It would have been far better to update the actual turret models and animations, and just dress up and keep the old UI icons that were easily recognisable by everyone.

Agreed, the new icons are pretty lame. The ice miner icons on my Mac look like black and grey smudges.

The old icons were stylised, relatively simple, brightly coloured, and distinctive.

These... aren't.

the new icons are nothing more than a still render
of the model that isn't even antialiased.

In short, they were too lazy to paint new portraits
for the icons.

Really? I hated the old ones that looked nothing like the guns they represented. The new ones look pretty good, and we'll get used to them soon enough...

but its not that the guns on button sucks its that u cant see them well enough on the old round buttons to make them work well...

they need to change the interface with better buttons with proper images you can see, right now grayish guns on gray buttons = fail

The new icons clash with the old ones and just look plain terrible. I used to enjoy being able to differentiate between my light, medium, and large turrets. I like to think I'm playing with futuristic spaceships, not some terrible NES.

X if you agree


Your face looks terrible! ugh

They look awful, and are completely useless as icons because you can't distinguish between any of the module types like you could before. Salvagers, miners, tractors, and turrest, all the same, dull black/dark grey blob on a dark background.

What were whoever thought this up thinking when they decided to change the icon designs?

I can't even see the turret icon next to a target icon, unless I swing my view around so a bright nebula is in the background. Or turn up gamma so high that other display problems come to the fore.

Against empty space, they are invisible to me. It's almost as game-breaking as the lack of ship bonuses.

I agree.
I think they should have kept the old icons and add a new turrets to ships and 3D view.

They're well drawn but they're way too dark. Even just adding a colour coded background would help a lot. Yellow for lasers, Green for Hybrids, blue for missiles, rustic for projectiles.

-they are color coded
-they are NOT drawn, they are renders, straight from 3D program, thats why they look like anal fluid

The TURRETS look horrible. The animations and turret effects are fine, but the actual turrets? No

The turret animations and effects are great! I'm not keen on the turrets themselves, but i'm sure many people are happy with the change, however the old icons need to make a return or new ones should be made to fit in with the current module icon style.

All module icons have a "sketched" feel, sort of drawn with enhanced colour so they're distinguishable in the hangar and on the UI - example shown - but the 3D renders just ruin the overall look of module icons.

Tbh, i'd be really happy if they just rolled back to the exact same old turret icons - they don't need to be re-made!

Change is not inherently a good thing, and it's not change people are complaining about.

No, but they do take away from the clarity, accessibility and usability of the UI…

…and the UI isn't scoring all that high in those areas as it is, so even a rather small loss becomes a pretty large blow, relatively speaking.

If you don't know what your guns are shooting, you are doing it wrong.
