Title: Confusing "Forbid" and "Unforbid" order icons
Post by: Elevator on September 15, 2018, 01:51:57 PM
In "Orders" menu icons for "Forbid" and "Unforbid" are a bit confusing. It is expected that striked out hand should mean "forbid". But in the game it has the opposite meaning. See screenshot.

I see where you're coming from but a held up hand, palm front, means "stop" at least in my country. So the slash through it means "Stop stopping" :)

If it was a "stop hand" sign then at least it should have red background like that: https://proxy.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.compliancesigns.com%2Fmedia%2Fno-trespass-security-camera%2F1000%2FNo-Trespassing-Sign-TRE-13579_1000.gif&f=1 (https://proxy.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.compliancesigns.com%2Fmedia%2Fno-trespass-security-camera%2F1000%2FNo-Trespassing-Sign-TRE-13579_1000.gif&f=1)

it does get confusing once in a while lol if my mind is in somewhere else when i use the tools to forbid/unforbid something, considering the slash's much more visibility than the hand

It is confusing and I want to improve it but for now, it's not exactly a bug. Just a UI clarification. Anyway thanks for reporting.
