After watching Idra's stream, I noticed something. When he builds a building, after picking the spot where to build, there is a preview placed on the ground and for him it is a bright pink.

Idras Buildings

However, when I build something, my preview is a faded out version of the building and not at all clear to see.

My Buildings

I'm looking for how to change my settings to be the same as his. My current graphics settings are low graphics with Ultra textures and I've tried with low-low and ultra-ultra but I can't seem to get the pink previews.

Any help?

BTW .. It may not seem like a big deal and it rarely is, but I have my hotkeys set so that the spore and spine crawler buttons are next to each other so sometimes I build a wall of spores instead of spines which isn't great vs ground based compositions as you can imagine.

  • My guess is that it's a result of texture quality, or some other obtuse setting.

    Definitely a graphics option. Dunno which one off the top of my head, though. Aug 22 '13 at 23:51
  • there is a tool tip for each graphics option, I suggest reading them Aug 23 '13 at 0:42
  • This seems like a graphical setting to me too. I havent even noticed what my own previews looks like. Id say trial and error regarding this. Play agains an easy AI. and try in-game.

I found this when switching my graphics from medium to low. All my previews went from pinkish to gray when I did so. When I switched them back after the game, which was really laggy, the previews switched back to pink.
