Have you tried the color blind modes? There a few to choose from.

The glare has a purpose that many seem to just ignore, and that is to make it more difficult to fire into the sun than with the sun at your back. I've tried to get my teams to maneuver so that the sun was behind us but most seem completely oblivious. If glare makes it hard to see ships or other things on the screen then you are positioned incorrectly.

no i haven't and i am not color blind, the text of dead ships are so dark, it's not the color blind problem, just make them grey, easy solution, the in chat red ship names can be bright red, instead of dark red

Yeah, the background can make it really hard too see. During a match I have to move my point of view sometimes to see the chat.

It would also help if the background behind the text chat wasn't transparent.  If it wasn't transparent, it might be easier to see, at least when the text color was blending in with whatever color was behind the text at any given moment.

I agree. If the minimap can be non-transparent, why cant the chat box also have a dark non-transparent background?

Chat should be a Crawl on the very bottom of the screen like the weather warnings on tv the crawl should be the last thing viewable on the border on the bottom. Or on the very top of screen border.

This way the chat can be solid with readable type and not overlayed in game.

How 'dare' you think outside the chat box, good Sir!?

A thousand up-votes for this idea.

Even better would be a customizable chat window that could be positioned according to individual preference.

actually i have suggested before that chat should pop from minimap like "cloud", so people can see which ship says what, that sure helps teamwork
