Still Colorblind for the Trains Wed, 23 November 2011 16:54
I love the colorblind fix for the routes, but the bigger color issue for me is the train cars. The yellow/green and blue/purple cars look exactly the same color to me. In online play, I often make poor decisions as a result of not being able to tell player's trains apart. Can two of the train colors be changed to something like black or white (or perhaps have options to pick the colors used)?

I like the idea of being able to pick which train colors you see! Since you're playing online and nobody else has to see exactly what you see, players could go into Settings and pick any 5 colors they wanted. Then you can choose your color-blind-friendly sets, or your Christmas sets, or whatever...and each person could have their own favorite 'set'.

Great idea! Now the DoW crew just needs the time and man-power to program this feature along with all the other great stuff I'm sure they're working on!! Very Happy

I registered just so I could reply. I am also colorblind and while I love the concept of the game it is not very playable for me in its current form. On the board I can't tell apart which routes are mine and which aren't . Also when picking cards I sometimes get the wrong ones because I can't tell the colors apart. Please make it an option to customize the colors so I can enjoy my purchase!

Uhm, in case it wasn't clear I am talking about the iPhone version. Does the iPad already have a an option to change the route colors?

OK, I just discovered how I can change the color of my trains. The avatar-o-matic is the place to be. This was totally unclear to me and not very intuitive. But I am glad I can now finally change the color so I can see the difference between train routes.
