    This is a bad idea, in my opinion.

    Many people use the color of the player in order to identify them and communicate with them. Things such as "Pink, are you ready to gank?" or such. Using this mod in-game will eliminate that, as all colors will be different for every player. This is especially dangerous for any new players that may browse the forum and use this mod, as they wont know which are the original places for the original colors.

    Really, I'm not sure I like this... but good work on making it happen anyways, I guess.

    oh, this is true... perhaps colorblind people can use it conservatively. but the freedom still exists. long live freedom!

    I certainly see your point, but I for one identify who to attack by hero rather than color. However, that won't help me if someone else uses this mod and say let's gank magenta.

    Your green on player 2 is a warm color. You need more blue to make it cold.

    Your purple on player 10 is a cold color. You need to pump more red into it if you want it warm.

    Doh. xD Having bright cold vs warm colors is pretty hard when you want to have a good balance and be able to differentiate the colors. I think I got to have some dark colors if it would work.

    Can you make a way to change your own color? As in, no matter which slot you're in, you'll be that color.

  13. #33
    uhm, probably yes but that could be a bit complicated to do.
    I'd have to look into that, maybe tomorrow.

    files for v1.0 up again. tell me if you find any bugs. :-)

    Lol, didn't even think about that. Never played the mode so never had to worry about it

    Is it possible the CC Panel be moved to a different position? like on the left side maybe or another Row on the bottom.

    I think Buddy Follow is in the same position as well. Haven't check if Encyclopedia got covered also

    Dunno who among the 3 I'm gonna ask..

    Haven't checked if Buddy Follow and Encyclopedia cover each other as well

    I heard you got problems w/ Bard's UI CC panel as well..

    I guess CC needs to be changed

    does anyone know how to check what your own position / playernumber / slot is (or something similar)?
    preferably by a command (i.e. Get...) or if that's not possible maybe by variable or by trigger?

    okay I found a (messy) workaround for that and I even got it to work after a few hours of coding

    it's strangely delayed though - probably would work better without that workaround, so I'm still searching for an answer for the above post :X

    From the left.

    Bard's Ui, Buddy Follow, Encyclopedia. those three works together, but your mod doesn't have any space there :/

    Maybe you and bard can make this:



    Orange square: A button for making the red slide out, and when the red is fully "slided" out, the blue things will begin to slide out.

    And the blue things are bard's + your C&C Config options. (If you only have one of the mods, only one blue thing will slide out.)

    that would be cool

    Or if the red thing is laying down and when you press it, it will slide up/right and expand in size.
