[] Radial Menus Getting a Washed-Out Look When over Reflective Blocks.

This is probably not a bug, but perhaps rather an oversight. It may not even be an issue at all, but it certainly looks a bit weird.

Radial menus (both on another tech or the player tech) get a white washed-out appearance when they appear over reflective blocks that are currently reflecting light (whether that be sunlight or the build beam light.) This would suggest to me, as an amateur, that possibly the reflection is being drawn over the menus but that's just an estimation.

There is no visible washing out when the blocks below the radial menu are not very reflective (such as EXP Platforms.)

Maybe this suggests that the behaviour is truly dependent on the reflectiveness and not the amount of light reflected?)

There is no visible washing out when the if there is something reflective that is not a block (such as the ground in the RnD Test Chamber.)

EDIT: More weird behaviour...

EDITII: it wasn't just the Better Future Block Controllers, the washing out completely stopped for everything! This seems a bit unpredictable. o_O
