Identify base selected

This is not a problem of the last update (19.1)
I do not know if it is a failure of my monitor, a failure of my vision or a shortcoming of the game so I will explain it to see if you can help me.
Since it was modified to move the selected base to the right (in the column of my bases) I find it very difficult when I am moving around the map, identifying which is the base that is active at that moment.
For me they are all the same color or I do not see an important contrast between the selected one and the others.
Does it happen to you too?

  • The active base will be identified two ways
    1. List of bases on right side of the screen; the active base will have that tab longer than the others, extending out
    2. The active base on the map will have an offcolored (usually lighter) ring around it and 'radiating'.

    I'd recommend rechecking your in game display options.

    I'm talking only about the right side bar of bases

    Look at my snapshot and describe differences between bases, remember, the first base is selected/active.

  • Your screen shot indicates the first base is not active though. All base tabs are the precise same length for every base visible.

    Ha, ha, ha, the active base is the first, believe me.
    It have got a light grey than the others, but is not enough contrast for me.

  • No idea then. I've never seen every base tab precisely the same length as being displayed for you and/or your world.

    In the past the selected base was near to left in the bases bar and the rest of bases appears like tabbed.
    In version 18.3 and 19.1 I lose this tab space. I can't remember the version of this change.

    This is a change within 19.1 I think - the length wasn't being correctly displayed. There is a slight shade difference when a base is currently selected, however, the shading is only visible when the base layout or army or defence view is selected, not in map view.

  • Thank you to my friend @maestroyoda28 for the snapshot!
    View of 18.3 version : http://prntscr.com/mhhsnf
    Inactive bases are tabbed and active is more dark.

    This is while viewing a base intertior, right?

    In 19.1 if you are inside the base the icon is darker : http://prntscr.com/mhhvnf
    Yes @EE_Elephterion , the snapshot of 18.3 was with base opened.

    I had not realized before that it would also be interesting to show the icon of each base darker even when you're looking at the map and not just inside the base if you don't have the icons tabbed.

    As I said at the beginning, it may be the fault of my vision, that I require more contrast to see color differences in the bases bar for the map view.

  • Well, you seem not to be the only one, so I made a note for the next patch. We will probably change it to the same tone that the active button has when viewing a base.
