I guess and yet it still doesn't feel intentional maybe they made the icons from 3d assets and messed up the angle in between rendering one plate and the other

Especially the iron/copper plate icons got a LOT of attention, this is very much on purpose. :)



- you make icons the same shape, colour blind people complain

- you make icons different shape, other specific group of people complain they're different

We are a games company based in the Czech Republic. Russia's invasion of Ukraine affects us directly. We have team members there, we have friends there, and we get information first hand. There is no excuse for the actions of the Russian army, they have little regard for civilians including children.

We support Ukraine and have made contributions to relief efforts.

We support Russians that stand against the actions of the Russian government.

You can help too, even if it is just with your voice. World leaders are listening: every voice counts.

The Czech National museum, which has bullet scars from the Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968.

Please, keep the discussions about the world events (if you can't help it) specifically in threads related to this post, as we want to keep the rest of the content on topic.
