Temperate Rating in Trailer

Published on Friday, October 28, 2016 By ithilienranger In Founders Starbase

I find the temperature rating of the planet in the trailer to be very confusing. I am guessing that a five bar rating is extremely hot, three bars is temperate, and one is extremely cold. I would prefer that the rating work like the others, where a one is safe and five is highly dangerous. I propose that the bars start with a neutral color, maybe a soft orange or yellow, and then move to a bright red if on the hot scale or to a blue color if on the cold scale. I would think that the filler color would be a softened version of the last "active" color bar in the row.

Please post if you have another idea.
