Hunter color

Post by The Purple Panzer » Sun Jul 24, 2005 3:32 am

Normally playing as Purple, I find it a little odd to be de-facto red team when playing rabbit hunt. It would be great to be able to set this color, either at the server (for everyone), or at the client (so, for instance, I might see everyone as purple, whereas someone who normally plays Green would see everyone as green).

It's a minor point, mainly aesthetic, but I also tend to react quickly when a tank surprises me at close range, and as red for me is normally an enemy it's hard to curb my instinct to kill. "Red! Kill! Red! Kill!"

Hunters are not red, they are orange. Get it? Orange camo = don't shoot! :)

Maybe we need to lighten up the texture some more.

If it really bugs you, try modifying hunter_tank.png. The
simplest way would be to copy purple_tank.png over it.

Then hunters would be confused with rogue, and rogues have no teammates, but in rabbit hunt you have teammates.

Some rabbits are black, too.

BTW, I've changed the hunter color to be a lighter shade of orange. I'd put images here but the viewcvs server seems to be not working and I'm too lazy to actually upload them.

Texture

Rabbits also are, of course, furry, so you could imagine changing the
texture a bit. 8)

omg baby rabbits are soooooo cute!

heehe

i picked up a wild 1 once ...and gave it back to its mommy . i didnt want to touch it (because i was afraid if they were like birds , the mommy bird will reject the baby bird if a human touches it , or something like that)but i had to save it from being run over by a car ...anyways they both disappeard into the woods together so im guessing they were ok (i hopes)


aua i went off topic ..

THAT, my friend, is an urban legend. It is actually not true, but so many people think it is that it may be a while before they stop.
OMNOM!

ooH

i think its not good to touch wild birds(or animals) anyways as they are often covered in bacteria and bugs an po0p ect.

1 time a baby bird fell down from its nest into my recycle bin outside my house an i didnt touch it because i could hear an see the mommy bird nearby an i didnt want to stress her out (and she was flying low at mee like skeery bird attack) so i left the baby bird alone and when i came back later from bicycling with my friend the baby bird was gone i think the mommy bird picked it up (i hope) and flew back to their nest because i didnt see them both anymore but i could hear them in the nest above . phew =P

yea hunter tanks might be better as yellow because grey tanks are very difficult to see sometimes esp. at night and low detail settings (which i use). but then again yellow/golden tanks might be too bright . so maybe a darker yellow?
e.g. Pantone® #110 ?
