    The normal ingame icons aren't that bad as they used to be anymore ;)

    same icons, just a black shader - personally I think they still need a touch up because they don´t fit the new designed UI .. sadly!

    I also like not having to Zoom in to see what unit it is.

    Uber just straight up needs to replace the current icons with yours. The default ones simply have no advantage over yours other than being default...

    hm I think they could have at least kept the white borders to orbital to finally set them apart from groundunits

    They use the white borders to show selection though, so that'd be confusing.

    yes --- but why ? Personally I think the old selection colour was okay - then leave all groundunits black and change orbital to white or secondary colour outline and u get a 100% increase in readability

    but thats just me - i´ll have to play around with this at least for myself :p

    I meant they look sharper and less messy when zoomed out ;)

    true .. but I´m not happy with the new ones and they made "white" unavailable for me now - white only shows up when selected

    You can always change the icon shader.

    The strategic icon shaders are now particle_icon.vs and particle_icon.fs. If you change this line in particle_icon.fs you can return them to always be white:
    Code:
    vec3 mixColor = v_SelectedState > 0.0 ? vec3(1.0, 1.0, 1.0) : vec3(0.0, 0.0, 0.0);
    to
    Code:
    vec3 mixColor = vec3(1.0, 1.0, 1.0);

    Thanks - I was probably going to try and make a mod for that at some point.

    hi folks,

    so I played around a little and can update (soon) this mod back to the old icons with white/black borders including some updated icons and an icon for the orbital factory.
    thx @bgolus !

    before I work on this I would like to know if there is anyone (besides me) who would like to have the old icons back for now?

    cheers,
    Moldez

    i think the icons of your mod are still better than the official ones... those are so huge and ugly xD

    Maybe I'm just an old man and hate change, but I miss your icons.
