    Maybe they should have used the color "Barbeque", to fit with their (perceived) national identity xD



    Edit: @nzcamel Never mind: I found the actual source of the new AUS colors:

    I mean, the mix of didgeridoos and exclusively Aboriginal citizen names like Gurumarra in the pre-modern eras presents early game Australia as heavily Aboriginal in influence. Maybe not in terms of game play, but having the citizen names, music, and colours all represent them was a pretty nice nod.

    Overall, though, I'm very impressed with what they did with Australia. It's a well-rounded civ that brilliantly encapsulates everything Australian without resorting to exclusively 20th century stereotypes-- the upbeat and adventurous music played no small part in that. And then they made them green for some reason. :crazyeye:

    The green makes sense to me. It's the black! I guess you could say that was one of the colours aborigines used more frequently too...
    It's just...ya know.
    Australia v New Zealand is a thing. And you don't go giving them our colour! Even if we can't be fitted into the game dammit!

    I changed mine.
    Gold and green clashes with Arabia, so I changed them (Arabia) to green and white, which doesn't clash with anyone. It is the inverse of China, but their green is quite a bit lighter.

    In lines 113-122 in the file steamapps\common\Sid Meier's Civilization VI\DLC\Australia\Data\Australia_Civilizations.xml
    I made these changes to the colour values:
    Code:
    <Colors>
        <Row>
          <Type>COLOR_PLAYER_AUSTRALIA_PRIMARY</Type>
          <Color>255,224,32,255</Color>
        </Row>
        <Row>
          <Type>COLOR_PLAYER_AUSTRALIA_SECONDARY</Type>
          <Color>8,80,8,255</Color>
        </Row>
      </Colors>
    
    In the main steamapps\common\Sid Meier's Civilization VI\Base\Assets\Gameplay\Data\colors.xml file I changed Arabia like so:
    Code:
        <Row>
          <Type>COLOR_PLAYER_ARABIA_PRIMARY</Type>
          <Color>255,255,255,255</Color>
        </Row>
        <Row>
          <Type>COLOR_PLAYER_ARABIA_SECONDARY</Type>
          <Color>0,107,52,255</Color>
        </Row>
    
    Coincidentally the green shade is the same as the one on the flag of Saudi Arabia.

    PLaying last night (CET), it struck me that Cleopatra has obviously already claimed the Green&Gold. How I missed this glaring flaw is beyond me, but by rights they should be Australia's colors..
    Edit: And Arabia...

    What ever it is, Australia's green is significantly lighter.

    Photoshop cut and paste job. I tried to find warriors for comparison. Egypt secondary colour is tennis-ball green to me. If that's even a proper colour name : )

    And I thought that was yellow lol. Seeing as Brazil and Australia are inverted here, that works.

    Yeah, I changed mine too. Seems more appropriate and the colours don't interfere with any other civ's.

    I don't suppose anyone will bother doing a mod for such a simple thing....? Lol

    There already is a mod for the green/gold australia colours

    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1297979453

    In fact, it looks like either Wereraptor is using it or by coincidence he tweaked it to very similar colours himself.
