:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

When trying to color an Objective that is visible on-screen with a color, similar to how Coloring Chat messages or Display Instruction is done, it is showing up white.
I consider this a bug since this handy feature is implemented in the other 2 message channels, furthermore the Coloring part is partly already implemented, as completed Objectives are displayed in Green color and crossed out (which would be a great initiative to add <.BOLD> <.ITALIC> <.ULINE> and <.STRIKED> without the “.”)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

:point_down: List CLEAR and DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue ourselves… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Create a Scenario and a Trigger
  2. Enter a Text starting with a color tag (such as “”) in the Short description of the Trigger and toggle “Yes” at the “Display at Screen” option
  3. Create a Condition in said Trigger with an impossible condition (like “Chance” = 0%)
  4. Watch the Result

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?

The Objective should use the given Color Tag, as conveniently implemented in Chat messages and Instruction Display

Why is this needed?
Due to the implementation of displaying Variables in the “Objectives” more and more scenarios are using it as a Scoreboard, with a lot of player-specific information - It would help if these Infos could be colored with the designated player color.
