[1.1.5] Hover states of toggle buttons are the same

In 1.0 there is a clear difference between the ON and OFF state of the button when you hover it, in 1.1 that difference is virtually gone.

So in 1.0, when you enable the "Personal roboport", for example, the state is pretty obvious.

In 1.1, the states are virtually indistinguishable (aside from the ON icon being one pixel lower) which leads to a bad UX (most of the time I don't understand did I enable or disable the roboport?)

The suggestion is to either remove the "hover" state for the enabled button, or make it more clear (as it was in 1.0). Thanks! :D

Not really true either, the two hover states are subtly different ;).

Your second image is not a hover, it's an "enabled" state. I am talking about how the button looks when you hover the mouse in both states. The buttons are the same (the only difference is that the "enabled" buttons has the icon ONE pixel lower :D)

My picture is infact of both the hovered enabled and hovered disabled states. But i naively took the picture in 1.0, and it looks like 1.1 fixed the "missing" glow on the hovered enabled state.

So basically it is in fact a bug in 1.1? :D

Yes, yesterday (actual version). I turned robots “off”, but in truth I turned them on. I need some clicks on the icon, to understand what’s on and what’s off.

And I mean the suggestion is clear: make that more obvious. For example tint the button darker, if off. Make the buttons “light”, if on. Many possibilities.
