...in the overview?

Am I the only one that finds that really annoying?

It used to be that if anything came up red on the overview, it was some kind of threat. If I warped somewhere and saw red, it was time to wake up and pay attention.

Now whenever I warp anywhere there's tons of red on the overview, and I have to sort through it all to see if there's anything that's a danger or a viable target. The first time I warped to a busy asteroid belt and my entire overview was full of red icons, I almost had a heart attack.

red cans = you get flagg'd if you take something from it
white cans = take that ****

Yeah, but they are not exactly a threat unless you do something dumb. Plus you get a popup warning anyway (usually). I think a different colour would have been a much better idea.

Green or blue would've made much more sense.

IMO it would have been fine to leave cans white, but with the inclusion that cans owned by you/your corp/gang could appear green.

No, red = danger
enemy = danger. thats why the 'danger' part of the equation is removed and becomes red=enemy.
The can now also repersent a danger, not the most obvious danger like rats, but still a danger.

Edit: Wish my brain and fingers would talk with eachother Sad

If there's a way to change the colour manually, I'd love to know. All I seem to be able to do in the settings is show it or not show it - same as before.
