While I am not sure, I did find something that I think will help you.

PS. I tried to contact them, to make sure that they know of an error on their site that prevents users from downloading Shell Shock's Texture Pack directly from them as well as their contact form does not work.

Hi Ultra,

I'm not exactly sure about changing a tanks team color, but it can be done.
I'm assuming you're referring to changing the texture color from a tank, so I'll start from there.

1. Locate the folder storing BZFlag and locate the 'Data' area.
(This will contain the textures used in BZFlag.)
2. Replace the textures with the ones you want.
(Just make sure they are named the same way, otherwise it will likely not work.)
3. View the textures used.
(Check and see how the textures look and if they're not loading try '/retexture' and it should reload the textures.)

Some notes to add though, if you're using the same textures for two teams, it can quickly becoming confusing on a few servers.
Also you might want to edit the configuration file as well.
(This will be for radar configuration and other things.)

Here's a bit of a list from some of the areas you might want to modify in configurations.

Code: Select all

#set bluecolor "0.1 0.2 1"
#set blueradar "0.08 0.25 1"
#set greencolor "0 1 0"
#set greenradar "0.2 0.9 0.2"
#set huntercolor "1 0.5 0"
#set hunterradar "1 0.5 0"
#set purplecolor "1 0 1"
#set purpleradar "1 0.4 1"
#set rabbitcolor "0.8 0.8 0.8"
#set rabbitradar "1 1 1"
#set redcolor "1 0 0"
#set redradar "1 0.15 0.15"
#set roguecolor "1 1 0"
#set rogueradar "1 1 0"
This will alter some of the radar/color of tanks.
Please note you will need to uncomment the settings to alter the colors.
I haven't tried much changing on the color configurations, but have altered textures a good bit.
By the way, it's generally a good idea to keep a backup of your configurations too, this way in case something goes wrong, you can easily revert it.
