Robber is hard to see sometimes, especially when playing larger boards.
yes please, great idea
I added another suggestion to put a picture with it...https://colonist.featureupvote.com/suggestions/90886/make-base-of-robber-black-so-it-is-easier-to-seeBy making the base of the robber black, it will stand out with more contrast, especially on an Ore resource hex.
Problem this feature solves: Makes it easier for the player to see where the robber is at and notice if it has been moved to one of their resource tiles.How to solve this problem: Keep the head grey and base black, but have the body reflect a 60% hue of the player color that placed the robber last.How will this make your game experience better: At a glance, you know who placed the robber on which tile and can see it readily.

Maybe just darken the tile that the robber is on in order to make that tile stand out from the rest of the board, rather than just the robber.
Change the Robber Color, since its tough to spot on the Ore Spots (grey in grey)
It can hard to know when the robber moved.Maybe a big "ping" effect when it gets placed on a new tile?
I suggest changing the knight colour to purple so it's easier to find on the board. Sometimes I can't find the knight on the board, especially if it's put on an ore space.
I agree wholeheartedly with Kansas' suggestion of darkening the tile where the robber is. Even better, combine that concept with the 01 May idea of shading the robber in the color of who placed it. Shading the tile like that instead would be even more conspicuous and informative at a glance, and having some hue to it would distinguish it from the dark gray shading used to show which tiles were just rolled. Speaking of that, those dark flashes go awful quick after a dice roll.
