UI / UX Suggestion for store discount prices

Patrick Heney shared this feedback 7 months ago

When a price is discounted, put it in green or blue. Gamers generally associate these colors with good things.

Prices that are higher due to poor reputation with a faction should be red. Red, yellow, and orange generally indicate bad things or unavailable things.

Currently discount prices are red, which is odd.

Not to mention that those red numbers on a darkened, reddish-grey background are insultingly difficult to read, and not just for people with color-vision deficiency.

I know Keen has absolutely no sense, let alone intention to have sense, of proper UI design …

… but that comment is now three years old. Maybe that has changed since and it's now time to have that finally revisited?

I mean just adding a Red and Green stock market style arrow to indicate how theyre higher or lower than the average would be a good start. Add to that a small message saying 5% OFF! and you have a more satisfying trade loop.

It would be nice to see this advertised at a distance through the stations antenna or something
