Is there any chance that we could choose the competing races colors when we put them into the world at game start. I just played my first game and found that I could not tell the other races from eachotheron the large map..they all looked yellow or green which was similar to my color. If i was able to choose colors I could tell apart it sure would help.
Thanks!
Oh I did have a good time though..Did not win..got the artfuly done "defeated" screen lol...the journey was fun though. Still alot to learn.

The editor is nice. And as long as you zoom in at black space, the only thing that will be spoiled by editing race colors, is spoiling which random races are present.

That is you can do easily with DW...
You can also do it via the race files, and the customization guide can and does have a color guide.

Make sure you back up any file you try to edit... that is a must.
