Player Colour for Units

It annoyed me that every unit in the game has the same red colouring, so I made this mod which applies a sponsor's national color onto its units, so it is easier to tell which civilization owns which unit.

Sorry to say that I have abandoned this mod and won't be updating it for Rising Tide or any future expansion.

The following units (for all civs) have been given dynamic coloring;
  • Soldier
  • Marine
  • Ranger
  • Gunner
  • Combat Rover
  • Armor
  • Explorer
  • Colonist
  • Worker
  • Embarked Ship

The ultimate goal of this mod is to eventually give dynamic colouring to all units in the game. So far this is proving pretty difficult to test with the later units, as it is not easy to spawn them to test.

This isn't ever getting updated, as the description says. The author posted it, updated it a few days later and never touched it again. Clearly, they don't intend to come back to it.

Thank you for doing this!

An RT update would need to add colours for the new units, and new colours for the new factions. Do you use the In Game Editor to spawn in units, or do you have to play through the whole game to unlock all of them, just to test

I've never modded, but what would need to be done to update this for RT?

Yes. If it was so quick and easy, you would have thought someone else might have made an Rising Tide version by now :)

Is it really so time consuming to update it?

Go back and read the description Dave.

Will this mod build into all units eventually?
