Is there any way we can change the color of the fly mode crosshair, this is the crosshair which is shown when in the new fps style fly mode (shift+f).

Currently the crosshair is black, I want a brighter color.

I have tried adjusting many theme parts but to no effect. Is there a particular area to change the color or is this part not theme-able?

  • $\begingroup$ If you really, really want to change it, you can probably change it in blender's source code and then compile it yourself. Other than that, I don't think it's possible atm. $\endgroup$

This option is now supported, but not in time for version 2.70. Later versions will have this option and meanwhile you can download a daily build.

To change this setting go to: User Preferences > Themes > 3D View (on the left) and select View Overlay.

The option affects:
- the cursor (fly/walk and the default black part of the 3D cursor),
- the camera guides (enabled in Camera Panel > Display), and
- the stippled line guide that appears when scaling objects.
