Highlight class trait names on trait screen
« on: March 28, 2020, 16:53 »

Currently, the highlighted words in class traits description are "Active" or "Passive". It's important, but the names of the traits being described also need to catch an eye.

Sorry for my bad English.

I wish that "adrenaline" was highlighted with the same color as the "Active" word. I find myself more then once wanting to re-read the description of a skill, and searching this screen for a long time.

There's no need to highlight anything in the "Passive" paragraph.

But why would "Adrenaline" be highlighted? It's not a stat, not a game mechanic. It's just "fluff" text. If anything, "Fury" should be highlighted in that case, since that's the class resource.

Shoot at everything that moves. If it doesn't move, shoot it anyway, it might move later.

It is an activated ability name. It IS a game mechanic.
I could ask for the description text to mention it: "Active: Adrenaline - blablabla", but I'm only modestly asking to highlight the word that already happens to be there. Fewer words is a better writing.

"ACTIVE - Adrenaline" actually makes more sense.
