is it me or that blue text is impossible to read on dark brown/black background?

 

 

Very

 

Wish Squad Leaders would note this when they colour the nametags.  Blue is very hard for me to see in game.  And to compound the issue "blue" sounds alot like "two".  Not saying that if blue is someone's ultimate favorite I will refuse to cope. Suppose to someone who is colour blind red is hard to see too,  but Green and Red don't sound like any numbers I've heard of.

Actually red and green color blindness is the most common and its near impossible to distinguish them apart. For me if red and green are used in game I have no clue who is who. Here the blue and the background don't work either. It would benefit from a different color choice.

Jimbo, I've recently started politely asking for a color change if I'm an FTL or even just a rifleman. The blue text just blurrs against anything but the bright sky for me. Not sure if I have a vision problem or just the way it is.

I cannot seem to edit the topic anymore for some reason. I wanted to change the color from blue because of all the fuss it has been causing and fix some formatting errors but I can't. :( Anyone know why? There just isn't an edit button anymore.

These are the current course documents we are using for the RTO course

I just added all of them to my drive, Thanks. If you could PM me the google docs for the Familiarization course if you have them that would be awesome as well. I watched a video by the same creator of the RTO video (mentioned in the main topic) on the  Familiarization course that was created around the same time, early 2015. I am sure the notes have changed from then as well.

To be honest anything but blue, red or green in game. Anything else I can work with.

Perhaps instead of watching a video of a famil course you should sign up for one. They're held on the first three Sundays of every month. I'll PM you the course as well. I keep forgetting to make it part of the sign-up posts...
