White looks like someone peed in the snow.
This could open up a possibility to create a cosmetic where we can change the XM color. Do you agree? I would love to be able to turn XM blue again when the Resistance wins the osiris series. Or red, to remind you of Dark XM.
Make it faction dependent: some tint of green for Enl, some share of blue for Res
@NianticThia the problem I have with the orange XM is that I cannot tell if a nearby portal is decayed as the orange peering through the field had the same texture as a decayed portal
It would be nice to have it back as a light purple.
Bit difficult to see in bright sunshine sometimes.
So, orange wins and XM is right now back to WHITE... 🙄 🙄 🙄 🙄
Ask users what they want, make the opposite... 🙄 🙄 🙄 🙄
From the post:
"Out of curiosity, which of the XM colors has been your favorite?"
"Out of curiosity"
No where did the poll say that the winner of the poll will have their color be permanent.
I don’t think anyone was expecting there to be a winner. But the irony in asking and then removing the clear favorite, is so Niantic. Especially without any sort of follow up, which is also very Niantic.
So yeah, nothing surprising here, lol
Glad it is back to white XM
My real vote is for each cell to have XM the color of the faction which won the last cycle. We had one instance where a faction color (blue) was set world-wide. Then it was just a festive color. At least make it green for Christmas, maybe the ENL will finally have the opportunity to set the world green that way. (instead of global scoring overriding anomaly results)
"Black history month" is only a thing in one country in this wide world.
Green, yellow, and red are more widely known as colors of flags for Jamaica, Ethiopia, Lithuania, Benin, Mali. Senegal, Togo, Guinea, Cameroon, Ghana, Guinea-Bissau, Burkina Faso, Congo, South America (AMC), and Bolivia, Sao Tome and Príncipe.
Aaaaaand the map's back to white XM. IMO looks a bit more bland now, but that's just me. Different color options in the store would be nice.
Want orange back
Real solution to this is to make it custom. It's obvious people is willing to pay for it.
really sad view back to normal boring white xm :/
Neither was it said that the poll would have no influence on anything.
Indeed, the entire point of a company surveying a group of people about something they care about is so that they can make changes for the better.
If @NianticThia was just personally curious, she could have posted under her personal account and made it clear that nothing "official" was involved.
300 votes aren't representative of anything 🤣
You can get useful feedback from surprisingly small groups of people.
After all, there are "only" 30-ish Vanguards and 45-ish XMAs.
For me, XM is orange again. Did prefer white, but can play with orange also😉
🍊 Back 👌
And we're back to being unable to tell the difference between a decayed portal field anchor and XM.
Orange was nice for an event, but it doesn't fit with the aesthetics either of Ingress.
XM is back to orange for me.
Just make it customizable in the scanner settings. That would make everyone happy. Maybe only for core subscribers.
Take a chill pill, dude. Would expect a little more from a XMA
Back to orange for me, thanks @NianticThia for lurking here I guess :)
Permanently? Anything but rainbow or white. And of course not blue/green.
White, blue, and green mess up with portal visibility. And rainbow do this simultaneously too. It's beautiful for a week and after that is just a visual mess. Maybe the raindow one should be adjusted to not be so bright, because you can barely see neutral and "small" portals when they're under green ad blue.
Orange is just the perfect middle ground, far from green, blue and white.
I'd like to have purple back. Orange is meh, White is crappy for visibility. Purple was okay.
Heck, the Orange XM must have used stong adhesive to still be sticking around almost 1 and a half months after Halloween ;)
It is still causing problems identifying what are decayed portals to recharge
