Yes, you’re right. It’s overall an important change.
And YES, black is black, sure, sure.
But telling me that “cool blue is quite a dark color” will tend to make me think “BS!”.
You can’t either tell us that you think it’s normal for all meshes to look as dark as they currently do.
Hence the reason I’m pissed, because that should’ve been fixed on testing, and several people (me included) have often pointed it out with a “please don’t forget this!”. This update has been prematurely released.
As always, maybe I do complain too much, maybe I’m too harsh, but you defend the devs too much, no offense. Nothing new or surprising, there, to be honest.
