One of the more common items of feedback that I received from the test weekends was that people would select a location for their base, then have problems laying out their base buildings because the terrain was too rough.
The colours on the new heatmap range from red (an outhouse with standard foundations can't be placed there) to blue (a huge building with standard foundations can be placed there.) When players want to tackle rougher terrain, one of the upgrades that can be purchased are chassis with taller foundations that allow the buildings to be placed more easily on rough terrain.
Because the heatmap colors matter, I modified the coloured faction overlay so that instead of overlaying the whole square with the faction colour, it draws the faction colour as a thin border around the square.
If you liked the old map, you can still see it in-game.
I'm not done with improving base layout yet, but I think this is a good first step. What do you think?
