New turrets are cool, new icons are terrible.They violated the first principle of icon designing:readable and recognizable.They are same black blob on black background. Hardly anyone can tell the difference between turrets&tractor beams&salvager.

The old icons were just fine, clear and cute. Please CSM,tell CCP to bring them back(and AT LEAST TRY to avoid making mistakes at this level again), it will cost them nothing.

Yes please! While they look great as detail in space, as icons they are just "blobs".

Personally, I rather like the fact that the new icons allow me to tell weapons of the same type-and-size apart. Like, say, Neutron and Ion blasters for Cruisers, because they have a somewhat-distinct profile apart from eachother, now.

Though they couldn't hurt to make them MORE distinct. Either that, or you all just need to adjust the saturation on your monitors or video card settings.

I do remember getting into a bit of a discussion with a fellow vet, where he was saying he had trouble telling the difference between the salvager (which has a distinctly grey-blue shade) from a small tractor beam (which seems to have a rather distinct yellow patch on top of it - also has a different profile, as with turrets).

I think I could stand behind using a different angle to portray the turrets in the icons so as to make said somewhat-distinct profiles more distinct. But I'd rather not go back to, "Is this a 150mm or a 200mm? (pause to read)"

I'd be happy if they just made it a little easier to see, no need to bring back the old ones. If they did, then there would be a visual disconnect between the icon and the mounted version in the fitting window, which I'm sure would also break some 'good gui' design rule.

Need new icons or old ones. In right side from locked target icons now is awful.
