Different Variation of Colors - Units.
« on: April 03, 2017, 04:27:13 PM »
If you are interested, the patcher file is below..

Black is Gray (will show as gray on mini)
Teal = Green (will still show as teal)
Orange = Burnt Orange
Blue = Sky blue (sky blue)
White = Pure white (bright white)
Purple and Yellow have been changed very small
Red has been tinted lighter. (Brighter red)

You can try it out- dont forget to back up your patcher file if you feel like this might not be a good change, I know I was sick of the crappy orange and the crappy pink.Thank you

Guess it's matter of pref. With the new ice white, I don't see it being similar to gray at all.  It's mostly black but the mini map color was adjusted for a lighter gray. There's not many options outside of brown and pink or possibly going with a royal blue.

I actually love how the green and blue came out. The green displays teal on mini

That is cool...
But BabyShark has a point. How difficult is to make a utility that allows someone to alter any color for any other color?
I have dyschromatopsia which makes really hard for me to distinguish some colors like: Orange from Yellow and Teal from Green.

Would it be easy for you to make a dyschromatopsia friendly set of colors?
I could help you choose the correct color shades!

Cheers

Yeah as far is the colors gos, lamb invented a program, maybe it's in the nerds  post in mods called Paulette editor.

You will need to download that. Adjust the colors 2nd and 3rd row from bottom. Save as a .ppl so if your doing forest it would be forest.ppl.

You will need win mpq to open the war patch.mpq.   Then add the forest.ppl file
You will have to use the same data that is there so bg/unit/.   And it will add the forest file. It's not too tricky but does require minimal learning. If you want I could re do some colors as well for your eye sight. Give me an idea which colors collide for you and i can try to do something.


Also. To add more players would require a new engine for the game or an overhaul to the one we have. If you understand coding, you could help in mods forum

Thanks

I wanted to see a new face in this game so I gave the idea of 8v8 with the color variations iqual in war3 has a munte of colors that has in 16 slots of players besides the map could be increased the size to support at least 10 players or more 5v5 or 6v6 would be a very different thing adding new colors I know it has thousands of colors for this


eu queria ver uma cara nova nesse jogo por isso dei a ideia de 8v8 com as variaƧoes de cores iqual no war3 tem um munte de cores que tem em 16 slots de jogadores alem do map poderia ser aumentada o tamanho pra suporta pelomenos 10 jogadores ou mais 5v5 or 6v6 seria uma coisa bem diferente adicionando novas cores eu sei que tem milhares de colores pra isso

We will definitely make that!
Today, while I play, I will pay more attention and note down the colors we need to tweak.

I can tell you which colors are alright:
Blue, Red

Problematic colors are:
Black(Pink)/Purple
Orange/Yellow

I'm not sure if I have problems with white or green I think not but I need to check.

Making Black to Grey; I think it would be better than pink but needs to be checked.
Cheers
