Colourblind players find it hard to differentiate between red and green status icons
New, WishlistPublic


The status indicators in the inventory are red and green and the majority of colourblind players find it difficult to tell which colour is currently displayed.

Additional Information

A quick interim fix could be simply adding an exclamation mark on the end of the text when it reaches a red state.

Light Dehydration: Thirsty
Medium Dehydration: Thirsty!
Heavy Dehydration: Thirsty!!

This would make it easier for the colourblind people without giving an advantage to colourblind or normal players.

Moving towards beta, a more elegant solution could be developed.

As a colorblind gamer I really wish this would get implemented, or at least a colorblind mode where the indicators are maybe yellow for slightly thirsty, blue for moderately thirsty and then red for really thirsty.

Upvoted for my brothers who can't see all the colors!

More people need to vote on this. I voted "up."

While I'm not colorblind, the first two friends I played with (via steam buddy list) were BOTH colorblind. And if that's the case then this means the probably of there being a LOT of C.B. players must significant.

This needs to be a Moderate priority, if not higher. Clearly, there are other bugs that of higher priority (hacks, zombies walking through walls,) but this is fairly high regardless.
