Civilization Colors

Wed Nov 14, 2018 5:37 am

Create a Scenario you can choose black or white and other colors but they aren't offered in a skirmish. Some people might not care but I think it would be cool to add those additional colors. I think each civ should have only 1-2 colors to chose from.

USA Blue or White
Germany Black or White
etc

Only 1 or 2?

I think that's a failure of imagination.

I would like to have a few more colors. My previous pc was bad at visualizing the difference between white and pink, and sometimes I still have problems seeing the difference, so some extra colors could prevent potential confusion. And in a 8 player game, there is a high chance both colors appear. However, there should be a ban on black: you cannot see how much hp (%) a unit has on the map since the color of lost hp is the same as your own HP.

Maybe hoops, but I am a history geek and think national colors look cool.

I don't see France in any color besides blue, their primary color and white as a secondary color. Spain, Yellow primary white or black as a secondary.  
Def think the Germans should have black as their primary.  
 
But I would love to see more colors included over all even if they are not limited. Black, white, burgandy, lighter blue, etc.

You do know that there are mods that alter colors and work with this mod right?

Can you please tell me in which site can I find them? :) thanks
I really think would be nice to have more colors :p I would ban Orange in certain maps because you can't see the units on the minimap.

But I think the intention of the post was to ask if the mod can add those colors to have 9,10,12 colors in total. Will the WoL team consider to add colors in some other patch?

You don't like orange as a color because you can't see it on the minimap, yet you want white and black playercolors?

Sure thing, here's where I found the mod I use, it's fairly easy to install. http://aoe3.heavengames.com/downloads/s ... d=1672&f=2

Those replace colors, I was hoping to add more colors.
