Reason for closing:  Won't fix
Additional comments about closing:  Given we can't change the palette without breaking everything, we can't fix it. Furthermore the game tries to avoid these colours (or pairings thereof) when generating a company colour, so it should only happen when people change their company colour manually or they play in a 10+ company game in which case there aren't really enough colours in any case.

The linewidth in plots got increased in r22292.

Someone has an idea for the chat? Maybe adding a company icon in front of the text?

I know, yellow and orange have always been very similar. That would not be easy to change at all though, as the pallette lacks enough shades of proper orange to be able to act as a company colour.
