You might also want to round the corners with transparency. Still having a look at adding colors to all nodes, will post here if I find a way (it will likely be part of my Blueprint Assist Plugin).

    Oh wow!! This is even more minimalist than I had in mind! Thanks!
    And double thanks for showing me where I can change a bunch of other images around too (;

    I think Collapsed Graphs could look like normal Functions or Macros if you ask me.
    In the end they are just like that minus the reusability.

    The engine can be much flatter for me, but still, the gradient is far more gradient based then anywhere else in the engine and feels misplaced.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I've found the gradient design of the nodes to go against the minimalist flat design the rest of the engine has.

    I've been thinking the same thing! Definitely want this in somehow, maybe just as an option, like Willard has said.

    Totally agree! Please give us more options to customize the look and color of all Nodes!
    Especially for Custom Events etc. Its not helpful only having this for collapsed nodes only etc.
    Collapsed notes aren't special anyway, they often just lead to obfuscating code far too much!

    But one workaround is to place a high-color-contrast-comment around key nodes (set A=0).
    Then 'Tick Bubble' color and zoom out. If you're consistent with color coding it really helps!!!
    However it still suffers one incredibly annoying limitation that Epic refuses to fix, namely this!

    (BTW:Add Editor / Project options, so nothing is broken for devs who like things as they are)!
    Yeah, I definitely agree there should be a way to have it stay where it is, and I should be the one to out of my way to get the new color,
    and having it as an option menu is a great idea!

    I do use comments, but I don't have any color convention yet, but thing this they only help group stuff but they don't give any abstraction,
    Like Functions and Macros do. But, thing with those, is that now you're stuck with them forever in your blueprint, so nodes are cool
    Because they let you abstract things you're only gonna use once. And you can always promote it to a function/macro if you decide otherwise.

    Because, as with that picture you've shown, comments can still get pretty messy, especially from afar.
