ICONS need COLOR. Ore icons, Components icons , Ammunition icons. Give them some color!
I am requesting this because many of the icons look too similar to each other when they are all blue-ish. I have over 1000+ hours in SE, but I still find myself not recognizing icons immediately when looking in inventories. SE is the only game I know that has inventory icons wich makes it harder to find the right item. It's not helping the player keeping it all blue-ish. Icons should be faster recognizable without the text describing the item. Adding the right color is a working solution. Simple mods fix it, but Keen could improve on this particular issue permanently. If ores, components and ammunition had some color, it'd be a lot easier to sort them out in the inventory.

Yeah, not sure what you were thinking there, but this UI needs some serious adjustment. First and foremost...colored icons. make that change IMMEDIATELY. Secondly...among the sandbox games that I have played, ONLY Minecraft has been this opaque. You NEED to add a tooltip (or similar) to blocks to communicate their function (possibly their power draw and other relevant information in the G menu.

@Raximus. I agree with you that the G menu could use a few other informative features as well. Like a simple description for the blocks in the G menu with some more basic information. So the player will know if the block is: -airtight, -requires power, -it's basic function, -mass, -if it has inventory (and it's available space), -etc. etc.

The reasons the OP gave for this suggestion are exactly why I use the Colorful Icons mod: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=801185519 The vanilla ones really should be colored...

And colors to the HUD too, like this mod http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=889485290 I always use Build Info (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=514062285), and Build Vision (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=756792814) Quality of life mods.

This is not an issue, by design.
