    Thats really cool, Ryhe. I have never had the courage to try and mess with the palette files.. I am glad someone has.... now the possibilites are endless..... I like the two color expirements... with a little tweaking... as a I said, the possibilities are limitless.

    Neat stuff.

    I ahve been thinking about attempting this for "the Drone Army" in my mod... they start with the technology to build a barbarian bonus modifier as well (half odf the great wall) and are expansionist.... to pretty much make barbarians a non-issue for them.

    hey Rhye, considered changing the colors in ROC, and even not, could you add your terrian to the file. (i hate the default!)

    But didn't you say that then it would stay with the old color distribution? =S

    Both my terrain and my colours already are in Rhye's of Civ. Colours are included since patch 2.14

    If you're looking for the terrain only, click on the blue link in my signature

    And is it still true? Or did you set it up so the new palettes replace those of their respective owners?

    That's pretty much what I did with Rome.

    I got around to editing all 31 civs. Since I am into more "realistic" colors I pretty much went by flags, or ancient ones if I could find them. It was a little tricky though because so many civs share the color of red so I had to make a few exceptions. Most of them turned out pretty good, while some of them could use a little bit of work.

    Rhye is right though. Using a dark color for the first color can make units and borders look a little wierd. :lol: I still like having multi-colored civs though. :)

    Impressive!! But if I were you I would make blue cities, graph etc.


    Can you make a list of the colours assigned to the civs?

    I can suggest some flags or national colours that would fit.

    Thanks. I got a few more. Here's India, Persia, England, and America. Of course India, England, and America are based on more modern colors.

    Rhye,

    I'll get back to you on that. If you got anything as far as ancient flags or colors go, for any civ, let me know. Keep in mind these are a work in progress, especially to get the borders and the cities to look good. I'll get around to playing more with this later on tonight. ;)

    Light blue is great, and orange and green is awesome too.

    I finally got around to playing with these a little more. The borders and city colors that I have decided to redo are coming along nicely. The unfortunate part is that so many civs share similar "realistic" colors, and that using darker colors first and lighter colors second looks awful in most cases. So, some are just going to have to stay either one color or use colors not generally associated with them.

    If anyone wishes to help, I'll take flag/color ideas for Spain, Mongols, Aztecs, France, Turks, Scandinavia, Sumeria, Japan, Hittites and the Zulu.

    Here's how I have the rest colored as of now and all of them look pretty good:

    Rome: grey/red
    Egypt: red/black
    Greece: white/light blue
    Babylon: green/blue
    Germany: yellow/black
    Russia: brown/red
    China: yellow/red
    America: red/blue
    India: orange/green
    Persia: gold/green
    Iroqouis: white/purple
    England: white/red
    Celts: white/black
    Arabs: green/black
    Carthage: white/brown
    Korea: blue/white
    Netherlands: white/orange
    Portugal: green/red
    Byzantines: white/yellow
    Inca: white/green
    Maya: yellow/blue

    If anyone has any ideas or suggestions let me know. :)

    Here's my opinion of some: (the order means which colour must be the first in the unit cloths and in bold the colour of cities, graphs etc.)

    Rome: dark yellow or light orange + dark red
    Greece: white + light blue
    Germany: grey or dark grey + dark grey or black
    China: pale blue
    France: dark blue
    England: red
    Egypt: yellow or
    Celts: light green
    Netherlands: orange
    Portugal: red + green
    Spain: yellow + light red
    Scandinavia: white + blue
    Arabia: greyish green
    Mongols: golden
    Persia: white + golden or white + green
    America: red + blue
    Japan: dark yellow or white + red
    Zulu: dark brown
    Aztecs: dark green

    Hey Rhye. I would agree with most of them, but why pale blue for China and light green for the Celts? I would think the Celts should be black, white, or grey, or a combo of any two of these, preferably white/black.

    Hi low :) ,
    is there any download (even though perhaps unfinished) that I could try? Your work looks really promising (and Rhye's, of course).
