Colour Committee 2013 & A Sneak Peek

Postby blakebowling on Fri Aug 02, 2013 1:14 am

That's right folks, we're having another colour committee. This committee will be responsible for choosing new army colors with the impending expansion to 12 player games.

That's right, 12 player games are coming! I suppose I spoiled my own sneak peek.

If you are interested in helping to choose the new colors, please send a PM to IcePack or make a post in this thread letting him know of your interests in the colour committee.

I'm interested as well.

As a jumping off point, we might want to look at standards for web colour design, and see how what we have now fits into that, and thus where we might go most effectively. Information about workarounds for colour blindness and general standards for distinguishable colours would be welcome.

Props for spelling colour properly as well.

Just FYI: I am partially colour-blind so I can't tell colours that are close apart. Ex. Blue & purple, green & yellow, red & orange, red & green, etc.

willing to help as needed too. definitely excited about this update!

Also, sign me up to help test new functionality if need be. Can probably also help modify XML for maps too. I assume these will be released in phases as it'd be a large effort to update all maps where 12 people are possible out of the gates. That can be a discussion for a different day but just wanted to be aware I can help where needed.

Thanks Blake.
taking a break from cc, will be back sometime in the future.
