More details.

Players pick a skin type on the join menu.

Every team has 5 skin choices.

Each player's skin choice is sent to other players and uses, so people on the same team can have some individual customization.

The resolution of all tank textures have also been increased.

That's awesome! The kinda stuff this game is missing.

Bringing some life back to this thread; I would be very interested in bringing this idea to a map that I'm making; would it be possible to proceed with this one concretely?

As a follow-up, if this can somehow be realized; what exactly happens in case of the MQ flag being grabbed, or if the tank height, length, or width server variables are changed?

From what I recall, this feature would be available in a future protocol break and I believe it was for 2.6.x, if I am not mistaken.
Although the textures could be used for the 'material' object within the '.bzw' format, I somewhat doubt this is your goal.

I'm assuming that most likely, it would remain the same, minus the team color change.
In the case of tank size variables being changed, the textures would adjust the same way as they do now.

Can you elaborate on this regarding the MQ flag? I'm not exactly sure what you are saying in this paragraph.

Would grabbing the MQ flag choose a skin of an opponent's team at random, copy the skin that the player seeing you in specific has, or something else?

I'd assume it would use the same texture index, just for a different color. Regardless, it's not a possible feature in 2.4.x.
