I love the rainbow but find it too difficult to see captured portals. The intensity was hard to look at last time too. White is better but finding greys can be painful at times also. The orange has been great!!!! And I really liked the original purple too!
Why not make the XM color change with the current cycle winner??
That would be a great way to have the people more involved in what the cycles are and how do they work.
If they made XM look as it did with Redacted, I'd vote for white. But with the bad texture in Prime, white also hides keys on the ground. Having this topic in mind when I just went out into the field, orange is noticeably better for spotting keys where there is XM.
So, I'm gonna vote orange, with the caveat that if there is a texture improvement, I could go back to white. I also do hope Rainbow XM comes back in June with adjustments so that it is easier to see things.
Is there any technical reason this can’t be skinned and sold? @ofer2 or @NianticBrian can you clarify?
Seems like a no-brainer. Sell the above options for $2 and let agents choose. If they wanna drive around in clouds of rainbows and not see anything else, $2 and it’s all yours!
I like rainbow because it’s 1/6th my favorite color, yellow.
My first impression after the event started is orange hinders seeing a portal drained. I feel rainbow is beautiful but too distracting.
Before the event started I'm OK with white after XM became white when layers were implemented. (IIRC, XM has stayed white to see if it goes well with layer rings.)
So I say white. (It's neutral too.)
That said, orange seems popular and has balanced visibility. Only major drawback for me is that portal drain visibility. I could live with orange. Of course customizable theme is always good but far-fetched?
Orange seems to stand out better than white, while not being too busy (rainbow looks cool but it can get distracting.) I’d say either keep orange long term, or make it possible to buy different color options in the store.
why not orange.
love orange and vote orange
I’d like XM to blink bright and dark. Blinking XM will help us to see other objects more clearly.
Can't see dropped keys with the orange XM. White XM makes more sense and other objects stand out against it. Rainbow also hides dropped items.
Hate the Orange XM. Makes it appear that fields and portals are permanently decayed. Please revert back to white ASAP.
seasonal would be great:
Choosing white so that we can have bells and whistles for events. Rainbow XM, while pretty, doesn't present well under fields. And Orange is pretty as well, but I like having it for events, not all the time.
Spring would be better as pink, leave rainbow for the event.
It should be allowed in the store to pick whatever colour each agent likes. If this is done, I see no issue in leaving white as default, but orange is more atractive from my point of view.
I was just discussing this. I’d like to see an option where I can buy the “Scanner Source” (or whatever) to turn on different XM colours whenever I want.
£5 for Rainbow XM for example and then I can put it on whenever.
I vote for white.
The portals are the place of the massive XM output. Neutral portals are white (a little gray, but it's not that important), so why should the XM they generate be NOT white?
No problem, if someone really wants some other color - give them the option to buy it, it's a really good idea. But I am convinced that the base color should be exactly white, and better yet, it should be made just like the old scanner and Redacted.
Vote Rainbow or I'll riot
Orange is difficult to read when the portals that make up the control field are attenuated.
I recommend a monochromatic indigo or purple color with no gradient rather than a rainbow color, as these are the original images of my XM colors.
Under field, there is confusion between orange XM and a damaged field.
On high density portal zone, there is confusion between XM and neutral portals.
Violet/purple was better.
Please, let us choose our own XM color like this :
blue or green should never be used for xm, painfull visibility
@NianticThia can you please relay my question to them and then relay the answer back to us?
@Khatre Neither blue, green, nor white should be used because of visibility. I can't even begin to count the number of times that I've tried to tap on a portal to capture it only to figure out that it was actually a couple of grains of XM right on top of each other.
I want original purple XM back.
Its just a little bit of excitement lol
Can we just have a Dark XM event but it’s another colour? That got me a nice gold badge and I was mildly intrigued to see where it was going but it went nowhere.
XM color? Customized definition!
keep all , we will change it by the CMUs.
or autochange everyday
Disappointed that the proper colour for XM isn't on this list: Purple.
Pour one out for the original Prime XM colour.
purple has very bad visibility outdoors..
