I am on holidays now and I don't want to discuss anything or hear any senseless arguments about COLORS, man wake up, changing colors to more natural ones??!


You mean that neon green?

OMG DEY TOOK MAH CALORHZ BUUUUURN

Guys (that goes equally to Ben and Paweł), aren't you slightly oversensitive on the colors you are using? xDD And besides, I am also using light green and I personally think the change made it look muuch better.

Re: Color palette

Guys (like sado), don't you think the colors are fine how they are now? Aren't there any more important things??Sure we can also go for changing the color of the ducks (no I don't mean neon ducks) or just play a bit with the haircolor of the labours. Maybe modern labours haven't this style of hair.


I am not sure what you mean with neongreen. There was no original name for a color called "neongreen", I mean light green, just watch the last part of the TSK campaign .-.

Oversensitive...yes; I can admit that I am overreacting. I guess that's easier to admit because in retrospect, I don't see why I was bothered so much. I've already started to conform to this more "professional" colors. Still, sado, it would be easier to understand why Pawel and I feel this way if you didn't change your color every flipin' game xD

but I do not see this as an argument to not touch colors. Can somebody explain to me why the most bullcrap topics tend to give us the most heated discussions here? xD

The stupidest little things always get most heat. People are reluctant to tackle big things. The small things are easy to get all mad about :)

Yes, but I guess Freddy can't help with the most important things like coding so he chose something that was within his capabilities. From my point of view copy pasting some colours from the forum is very easy and doesn't take much time. All of the "important" things on my todo list are difficult tasks that are not much fun. It's nice to work on something easy for a change.

Re: Color palette

Wait, I´m too lazy to look it up. The "black" enemey in TSK (The final boss) was supossed to be black? He was a bit grey-ish i know, but wasn´t there another enemy in the TPR campaign that was really black?

KaM only had 256 colors so there weren't many shades of grey to choose from. So I think there might have been some enemies that were pure black.

Re: Color palette

Ok, one more thing. Finally I have seen the new colors in game. I don´t get it. Why TSK has still the nice looking green (neon) color but this green in multiplayer looks like a simple dark green color? :P :P

Don´t come please with statements like "oh, cry about colors now?" but it´s also a piece of old memories, to remember the good old times from KaM.


I already described here viewtopic.php?f=14&t=2150 why I like my neon green, so I don´t get it why I have to choose another color now /play with another one :o ?

Re: Color palette

Just to be clear I'm not at all opposed to reverting certain colours or changing them further. There might even be room to add another green without them being too similar. Comparing r5503 bright green with RC2, I agree it is a very different green and it seems like a shame that the r5503 green is removed (especially given that it is used in the campaigns). Do you think it's different enough to be included alongside the existing greens in RC2?

Re: Color palette

Well if I am correct, there are 3 colors:

Light(neon)green that looks totaly different. Yellow, was before Lauenburgs yellow from tsk4, now it isn´t even yellow I would say, troops look like orange. And if you watch tsk07 as an examplle this purple/pink color isn´t also really findable in the multiplayer colors.

All other colors look quite good(maybe because they weren´t changed in rc2) like red,black,darkblue.

Re: Color palette

I do understand why you would like to keep the colors already represented in the campaigns etc. but I personally see it completely opposite, that colors in the MP are in no relation to the SP colors and I don't see why they can't have a completely different palette, that is better balanced (in my opinion).

The neon green... are we all talking about this color: ? If yes, that is exactly the color (that I hate) that led me to this suggestion to change colors altogether.
