Summary0021103: Add alternative "planet not visible" graphics.
DescriptionNameless Terror: Please get rid of the matrix shout out when viewing "scouted" planets. Something more lowkey like dimmer lighting. More pleasant on the eyes.

(In general this is also related to a thing Badger said, in general some confusion. Options are good, I plan for a couple of them.)

I like what Factorio does when you look at an area with a radar - subtle film grain effect.

Bit hard to see in pictures though.

I thought about doing that, too, but felt like it was overly subtle. I can definitely make a couple of versions, though; that effect is easy.

Thanks!

* The visual effect for viewing a planet where you have stale intel (but have seen it before) was before a bit confusing and a bit much.
** Much as Chris liked the matrix-y effect, that has been ditched and things are a lot more Factorio-like in terms of just being darkened and grainy.
** The effect is subtle enough not to be irritating, but to be definitely noticeable. Given the sidebar notes Stale Intel, and things don't look super duper crazy in terms of the visual distortions, hopefully we don't need any bigger onscreen messages to explain what is happening to players.
