It's faster to scan the leaderboard for colors than letters, it's simply convenience. Why not make the game clearer?
Another star because why not~

A different color for each mod would be too much (especially with mod combinations), but an additional color for HR/DT and one for a combination of HR/DT+HD/FL would be nice I guess. I sort my beatmap list by rank and it can be quite annoying to have to select each map individually just to check if my S/SS is nomod or HR/DT.

I see it as a reward for the efforts some top players undertake to get a unique score in a map. Take this example: What if Cookiezi (or someone else... like certain German cheater) full combo's Mendes with DT+HD with high accuracy? He would certainly not get first place, and his score would be hard to see among the other FL+HD scores. When looking at the leaderboards theres no difference between the scores at first glance. It is until you read the mods that you realize someone has actually DT'd the map.

If you have colored S's for different mod combinations, you would know at first glance the difference between the FL+HD runs and the DT+HD run(s). Back in August (or whatever month it was) Tom69's hacked score of Mendes would have showed up as a red S among a bunch of blue S's. When you consider the fact that Mendes is much harder on DT than on FL you understand why unique scores should get the extra attention. The same effect would happen on maps where FL is harder than DT, with the unique FL score standing among the crowd.

I mean, seriously, when you undertake the effort to get a unique record on a map, one of the primary reasons you do for is for visibility. "Look, my play is the only DT+HD run of the entire leaderboard!" This is the same reason why the SS rank got introduced in the first place, so why not take things further?

Because it's already listed in detail just a tiny bit further to the right.

My two cents on this is that the client is already bloated with ugly things that I can't change or get rid of, and that anybody who actually cares about others scores on the leaderboard actually looks at the details rather than the letter rank.

A lot of work for very little, if at all any benefit. The scores in question are perfectly noticeable even as it is of now.

I already skinned every single one of them to get rid of the ugly bloat, yet despite using these I can with ease distinguish the innovative scores from the majority, because this is no harder to read than that

The text really isn't hard to read and it shows all info on scores rather than colored S ranks. If S ranks were all different colors depending on rank combination, it would definitely confuse me more.

It would definitely be more clustered and confusing with different S colors.

Two letters [each mod] is not hard whatsoever to read, I feel it's easier than having to identify combinations with different colors.

It doesn't need to be taken further.

Well, this isn't really just about finding scores in the ranking lists (at least for me it isn't).
I'd like it because i can't easily tell which of these scores are HR and which nomod without selecting the maps one by one:

It's not about finding scores. As my post stated, it's about additional visibility given to players who work hard for a unique score. After all, the competitive aspect of the game is all about building up a reputation. Unless you want to argue that it's about PP, in which case well... god help you.

Following the logic I'm reading here, we might as well remove the SS rank as people can clearly read the 100% text. Also, we might as well roll back the avatar-on-leaderboards update because the text is sufficient. Remove the GUI - text is sufficient.

Saying the leaderboards would be clustered with all sorts of different colors would only make sense if the leaderboards were clustered with all sorts of different mod combinations in different orders, which is very rarely the case.

something special for DT/HR would be great

It's great to be able to find DT+HR plays at first glance between all the DT+HD plays. DT+HR usually means ar10.86 or higher which is fun and impressive to watch.

Seems pretty pointless since now you can see HR/DT next to the score anyway. Visibility reducing mods have a special color, other's dont, and to me it makes sense. Not that I have anything against this, I just don't find it necessary or useful.

That's true, there's no need for it with the new filter things, still would be very pretty tho

This is stupid and useless, but I do see use for what Luna proposed, as in having the option to skin the additional separate mod ranks to with greater ease sort out through your own scores.

Although I'd rather see the rank letters changed, an acceptable alternative to this would be color coding the mod symbols on the leaderboards (for example: HR HD)
Have another star ^_^

AR10.86+ records are perfect examples of the unique scores I've been talking about. If this feature request is implemented the way I would want it, this map would have spots 1-2, 3-6, 7-50 show up in three different colors. I'm talking about my way because I don't know what peppy is able/willing to do. If each difficulty mod is given a color, I assume he could code something to mix the colors together for the different mod combinations.
