Unit teamcolor visibility IMPLEMENTED

Here talk about units and structures.
IMPORTANT!: Every unit type and structure type should be in a separate topic.
So if you have a new unit idea than open a new topic for it!

Unit teamcolor visibility IMPLEMENTED

Post by Stratego (dev) » Fri Aug 16, 2019 5:57 pm

I have received many complaints that team color is barely visible (mostly on tanks i think but maybe some other too)
tha sad thing that it is true.

so my ideas
a) making all unit images to color some parts of it (eg. tank tracks, or long lines along the body): disadvantage: i am afraid that the great real life "accurate" appearances would be ruined, and we will get closed to some fictional appearance (maybe some sample images would help - please someone try)

b) making some undercoloring by code under all units onto the terrain (like the selection circle now when u select a unit - or something), and optionally removing all existing teamcolor (now it is a little flag on tanks, little ammo box on guns and so on) and :disadvantage: it would ruin the look of the whole map a little, even if it is turnable on-off

c) making the current selection circle team colored, so it will change color if u click on an eney unit

d) any other idea?

I actually want to see what option b looks like. There aren't many tanks that look good with an off color part, and the colored belts always looked wierd on infantry. I feel like planes only had the best team color placement.

I think all those are a lot of work... But i prefer B...

Btw, why no just change the selection highlight circle of units to work with team coloring? So, if you select an unit from blue team, it will turn blue, if you select units from yellow team, will be yellow and so on. I think this will reinforce a lot the things we already have and no massive changes on imgs or terrain would be needed...

Enough idk, but if the foes became highlighted with their tean colors when selecting multiple units would centainly help find out who is who on the field.

I like idea c, we won't have to put team coloring on hero units in AoS and variants.
