Color Schemes

In Sports Management Games (as well as some other genres of games), one of the most frequent difference of opinion amongst players concerns the color scheme of the User Interface (UI).

Some prefer lighter colors, while others prefer a much darker style (often because the find light colors hard to look at for a long period of time).  While the first version of Football GM will not feature a completely ‘skinnable’ (customizable) UI, it was still felt the UI should cater to uses who prefer either color style.

The “Light Theme” is the default theme in Football GM, and will be used in the vast majority of the screenshots and videos this blog will show.

However, using the “Options” menu on the home screen, the player can easily switch to a “Dark Theme” if they prefer.

In the future, if the demand is sufficient even more color schemes can be added, with the eventual goal being that players can customize the graphics themselves at some point.
