You should use the original thermometer with added highlights on the bulb.

maybe like that?

That's awesome! I tried to place pixels differently cause I didn't want to copy yours, but you placed the pixels so perfectly that other ways always seemed worse, haha.

Now I'm just a little confused with which way I direct the color growth. And I'm seriously considering to discard the red here and let the blue build this cold aspect to the thermometer.

Definitely keep the red. It is instantly recognizable, it makes the UI pop nicely. White just looks weird. I like your very first version, just add highlights

Original thermometer was correct, really confused by Mr. Fahrenheit's comment.   ???

Mr. Fahrenheit is right, Mercury in thermometer is rising on the high temperatures and lowering on low ones. So when it's colder red should go down instead of up like in first thermometer. Mercury is contained in the bulb and it's just expanding and shrinking depending on temperature.

Out of all people Mr. Fahrenheit definitely knows thing or two about temperature. ;) :D

Isn't that exactly what it's doing?   ???

edit:  Maybe I saw this topic after the first post was already corrected.   :crazy:

You're right, there's no motive for confusion, haha. I'll keep the mercury.





I'm with Manupix when he said it's not very readable when covered in frost, but a lot of people told me to keep it, so I'm inclined to.

Looks fine to me. It isn't as clean but especially because you can see all of the glass when it's red there isn't any trouble reading the ratio.
