Petition: Bring back extended player colours!

General Discussion

Green, Brown and Peach (it's called Tan) still exists in game as colors, you know...


How exactly do you get these colors to spawn in? Even in offline games or LAN?


You have to edit the map using scmdraft
My favorite color was the shade of black that, instead of looking black on the minimap, would blink semi-quickly, semi-slowly to a more orangish beige shade.
Well the devs said they are working on it... Like a year ago. So they are still working on it :)

Oh man, those colors were awesome.... the pulsing gray color, black, crimson red, pulsing red color.... good times...

I've tried adding extra start locations to get the colors to spawn in. What exactly would have to be done? Or is it a UMS type of !@#$?

You have to go into "Map description" from there you can select the colors for each player, which should then be randomized in Melee games.
Bump :)

Glad you bumped it. I was roaming and I would not have seen this. It's really important to know.
There are a lot more pressing things to do before this. But it would be cool to have it eventually.
Geez..
Just do it already, please.

Otherwise there will be always other things to do.
It's been a year already, that's quite a lot for a game patch, and that's why it might never come.

P.S : If it does though, don't forget to add black color please, it's important in mapmaking.
For now, MTL plugin has functionality which allows bringing custom colors back. Here are examples:

Looks pretty good even better than in original.
More than custom/extended colors, having the ability to choose your color (from the standard ones already available) is more important.

It looks pretty cool, i hope this year they open those ears or eyes and check for the petition. I mean last patches have been so dissapointing...
There were so many (IIRC you could range to 256, maybe I'm mistaken) extended colors you could choose in SCMDraft and apply them to starting locations thus in melee maps you could spawn with unusual color. Didn't even know they disabled it. That totally sucks!

In another note what I really dislike is in KSL players only spawn blue and red (SC2 alike) which looks doll compared to ASL where players spawn all colors. Please let players have different colors!
