6.5.Battle Squid (Torpedo) Discussion

Would like to start by saying the different moorings is a very interesting evolution of the torpedo task.

The dark graphics on a white background give us concern that the torpedo task will be a repeat of 2014 RoboSub where the target board was indistinguishable from transdek walls. To eliminate the possibility of this we suggest that a colored border around the entire board be added.

Additionally in the images the squid graphic and the cut out borders are both red(ish), we suggest that the color of one or both be changed to ensure contrast between the cut out borders and the target graphics.

I'd rather not put a border around the entire board, since these may turn out to be cut outs in the shape of the squid and tentacle. I agree that the image of the squid is too close in color to the red border of the cutout. I'm open to changing the squid and tentacle to any color that would make a good contrast.

Re: Cutout Borders

I think changing the color of the borders around the cutouts on the squid board from red to black would also address this concern, while also being easier to implement. The color of the borders on the tentacle board would remain unchanged.

Border colors

I'm open to any colors for the squid and the border of the cut out.  If the cutout border is black, what color do you suggest the squid be?  Keep it reddish?
