Confusing "Forbid" and "Unforbid" order icons
« 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" :)

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.
