Support Brighter Lat, Long markings

I am able to use bastanko6 light grid tool and can find my position to patrol with it but my problem is the lat and long markings around the map. They are too small and dark for me to read easily. I saw in either Sjizzle &bastanko6 posts on their tools that their map had nice bright markings and was wondering where I could get that map from. I am using the WOS latest version.
Thanks in advance.

You have to use the patcher. Go to the TDWpatcher and you can change the color to your hearts desire!

Thank you. That was fun, I went down the wrong rabbit hole with JSGME at first but found my way in the end.

I can now see the markings. I left all the other options alone for now

When is your next vid?

Very nice
I have changed Long/Lat to white and the range meter to a dark black, now it looks much better, although the fonts cannot be changed into bold style which would be ideal.


Works perfectly for me too, thanks very much!
