Team Colors

Post by macsforme » Sun Aug 28, 2016 8:19 pm

Can we go back to Red versus Purple? Green has proven to not be a great color. When the green team flag is at a different elevation than you are, with enhanced radar, the flag blends in with the geometry and it's very hard to locate it.

In the previous discussion there was an unstated assumption that all maps would use the same colors, but it is technically easy for each map to use its own set of team colors. Is this request just for the HiX map?

I imagine the same problem will manifest on all the maps that have jumping, so I think it would be most beneficial and most consistent to change all of them... but HiX is the map I care most about.

I support bringing back red v purp on hix. It's just a personal preference with regards to visibility and what I'm used to on the radar. Even though we've had a couple of months on red v green, I still seem to prefer things the way they were.

I personally liked the change, mainly as it was something new. I haven't played enough to have problems with the enhanced radar though.
Would Red vs Blue be another option otherwise? That was the 3rd most chosen option after Red vs Purple however.

Blue is even worse for visibility... especially for shots...

Blue is worse for visibility.

As for the switch from purple to green (yes the poll vote called for red/green)...it was brought up post launch by a player that he had difficulty distinguishing red from purple. I know you can change team colors either in config or a localset command.
Should the consensus here arrive at returning to red/purple; then the command for changing team/tank colors on your computer could be posted here and on LU site to facilitate playing for all.

Players on servers should be directed to read this thread before we make changes on just 4-5 players' input.

the poll was pretty clear on player input then.
Constitution makes a good case for jumping maps....and maybe those who actually play on jumping maps and are affected by the green color need to be directed here to post.

In my experience, the green team flag is a bit harder to see on levels you aren't, but with watching and understanding what is going on in the match, I haven't had a hard time knowing or finding where it is. I don't have a problem with changing back to purple or staying with green.

Allejo changed the following maps to be Red vs Purple, since these are our jumping maps.:
- Hix
- Babel
- Babel Mini
It's been a week now and issues over the color appear resolved.

Enjoy
