Will you be updating this mod now that the new patch has introduced several new icons? Please say yes. :)

The latest patch now has new icons for HQ factories and T3 assault bots, I have a feeling there might be others but I can't think if there are.

Is there a way to enlarge/alter the icon for projectiles? eg, for spotting T1 bomber projectiles when you can't or don't hear the bomb release sound.

It's a problem because from my understanding, these new units are overwriting the game's files. it means that no matter what i'll do, FAF is going to replace it with it's own. it needs further study.

Yes there is.. but isn't too marginal? you'll notice the bomber himself long before his shots (If you have a proper radar).

I don't think it's a problem, exactly, because the knew things are actually really easy to spot, they're freakishly small... but I suppose it would all look a little better if they had normal sized distinct symbols.

By the way, this mod is awesome.

Version 1.2 is on the way, designed to bring full compatibility with FAF and it's new units while offering improvements to the icons quality, eliminating various artifacts.

It turns out I pushed beyond the original plan.
Version 2.0 is released. the new version include better icon resolutions, numerous corrections, full compatibility with FAF and a brand new experimental installer.
