      Quite dark for black, making it hard to see what orientation my blocks are. I would like all hulls to have 1 colour that is easy to see, to figure out the orientation, or make black so up lighter on the black background.
      Thanks!

      Some kind of generic block facing could be handy in that situation. Perhaps one that can be toggled on/off.

      Longstanding issue. This also occurs on lighter colors with flatter textures (I.e. Standard Armor)

      Maybe Schine can use their new "outline" functionality to create a wireframe of the visible surfaces of the block and overlay that on top of the preview in both the build mode window and the translucent build shadow.

      As long as the "backfaces" of the block are not also "outlined" behind the visible face outlines, this should be sufficient to assist the player in orienting their blocks correctly.

      Yes. . yes. . please make this more manageable. I have gotten to the point of just putting down and picking up wedges to see which direction they are facing. The little preview box is next to useless as well. It basically gives me a smaller version of the same confusion. It needs it's own lighting map or something.

      YES! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!

      Also move/remove this frigin redundent tooltip that tells you how to click on arrows and blocks the orientation window... also it doesnt seem to turn off with other tooltips.

      When you mouse over the orientation window, it highlights the blocks background in white.... how about it just stays highlighted, always! Dark blocks could have the white background and lighter blocks could have a black background.... Seems simple enough.
