The PI stuff looks really cool, been messing around with it on the test server and I think I have a good idea of how it works. However, one thing I really hate is the display of where concentrations of deposits are. The blue to green to red is EXTREMELY difficult to see if you're colourblind. Could we please have some kind of either high contrast version or a colourblind version or something? I've resorted to moving the minimum level back and forth to see higher concentrations, but I have to move the planet around and keep doing it to compare...it's a pain.

Although I am not colour blind I agree with OP. The colour is nice, but high contrast gray scale should be an option.

if u adjust the colour bar (yes it is a slider) it makes PI alot easier to use and helps those with colour blindness

As frequently as this sorta thing comes up...

CCP really needs to hire someone who is color blind to test every bit of the interface and fix.

This was already covere din another thread, however i havent logged on to test it.

Essentially if you click int he middle of the slider or something youc an change the colours and switch to a greyscale. If my explanation makes little sense Do a forum search it was answered in another post.

Incorrect on the grayscale idea. What it does is change the color spectrum for amounts of minerals.

How I get passed colorblindess (although I'm not colorblind; I just prefer numerical values of colors); I move the left slider all the way to the left, then move the right slider left until only a few patches of minerals are white in color. Whatever number the slider lands on is the amount of resources at that spot, which is the most on the planet.
