"44" looks like it could be "144" due to icon design. Please consider redesigning it.

In case of vanilla, where steel stack size is 100, it doesn't matter:
It can't be greater.
You will probably say, that new players don't know it and you need background knowledge...

I don't literally don't see the problem. I understand what you get confused about, but for me it's clear

You have absolutely no reason to get snarky with me.

Your suggestion is completely valid (except maybe for not using the template ;)) and might even be considered by the devs
We're just saying, why it's not a problem for us.

Please, don't feel personally attacked.

icon baking has been a topic of debate for some time now. i wouldn't be surprised if this changed when the expansion comes out, or sometime before it.
