Poll: What colour should the Influence UI bar be?

Postby Zaha on Mon Dec 12, 2011 6:23 am

This week I'ma begin work on designing the Influence bar for 0.5b2. Basically, Influence is going to be a regenerating resource bar that is capped and refills itself after you spend from it - similar to Faith.

So here's the million dollar question: What colour should the Influence bar be?

Just a reminder, the Faith bar is blue and looks like this:

Don't worry about what it's gonna look like, I already know what I'm doing there (and it's gonna look Niddy as hell), but I'm curious as to what colour people think best represents the Tyranid influence on an ecosystem.

I don't know why, but I always thought of it in a greeny-yellow nasty color :)
P.S. I voted "other" since it's not purely green, but you get the idea.

That's the colour I imagine. Also, I found the greeny/yellow fx suited the Tyranids in DOW2, so I think it would suit the bar too.

Well the toxic miasma effect is purple, and it's one of the most obvious features of the mod. Or red, I like red.

I vote for other: greeny-yellowish colour; I think I got pretty much used to what I saw in DoW2, so why not?.

Green - yellow if also my idea.
But please, keep the chosen colour "compatible" with the overall UI colouring concept...

So... apparently everyone wants radioactive green-yellow?

I may do a few demo pics of a few different colours once I've started. Just need to locate my scanner at the moment.

So um... my scanner was at a friend's place. A housemate was gonna bring it back for me. That housemate got into a car accident. Current whereabouts and status of the scanner: unknown.

I'm told he'll be fine in a few days. Just got banged up a bit.

In the meantime I'ma have to investigate my other housemate's scanner.
