Change potions icons to be more informative

#1

Another minor yet effective QoL change. Replace the potions inventory icons (which all look the same) with a simplistic design similar to the condo tool icons. Here’s a rough design I made. The potions go as followed:

Tiny Potion > Small Potion > Medium Potion
Normal Potion > Slightly Bigger Potion > Large Potion

Also side note, as previously mentioned. What’s the point of the normal potion? It doesn’t do anything.

Potions used to be consumed when you equipped them, making the Normal potion necessary to return to 1x scale. It is simply a remnant of that.

I’m aware of that, however currently it serves no purpose at all. It should either be removed or turned into a unique size potion.

The potions might need work, maybe a different colour to determine the type.

Colour isn’t really a good option for readability, just based on accessibility. Anyone who’s colorblind wouldn’t get much helpfulness out of an update that colour-coded the potions.

Maybe a symbol then?

While in my opinion different colors are a good start, I think that the bottles merely having different colors would be a bit too simple and make it look rather lackluster.

I recommend more variety in terms of properties, such as:
Different bottle shapes, effects (glowing, sparkling,…), symbols, different sounds when consuming them - It should all feel really unique and special in its own way.
