The icons for the salvager and tractor beams are so dark now.

Most of the time I have to look into the sun to see what wreck they are active on.

Dark grey icons on a black (space color) seems a poor choice.

I do love the 3D view of them and how they look on the ships though :)

Yes I was thinking that too they are hard to tell them apart with some concentration. The turret designs do make the ships seem more real.

I agree 100% they are awful to distinguish between

Definitely agreeing that the new icons are just poorly thought out and need to either be redesigned or reverted to the originals. One of the very few things I am really not happy with in Incarna so far. I don't know how they look on a 50" screen but on my 19", my eyes seem to involuntarily strain when viewing the new icons (starting to get headaches while playing).

Is there some reason we can't just retain the old icons while leaving the new on-ship models (which look good imo), or be given the option to use the old icons in place of the new?

i'd also like it if the icon were reverted back to their original state, this is just a pain in the eyes to see

I like the new turrets on my ship, but they look out of place as a icon and i don't think there was anything wrong with the old icons.

The old icons where very clear and easy to see, and matched the theme of the other module icons.
