From: Hoorn (NED).
Let's just say that I am not able to play with these kind of colors. There aren't enough differences between them. On one unit, I can't even read the description (the dark coloured GAR). To me, it's totally dark brown with a GAR symbol in it. That's it. A lot of nations look the same to me...
For the colorblind, this is a nightmare. This is exactly the reason why the colors used in MWIF are chosen the way they are.
Khaki in Flames is one thing, but this is a bridge to far, where I'm concerned.
The original colors that come with MWiF are good enough for 100% of the people that want to play the game. Not being colorblind is just my luck.
Khaki in Flames was the egg that hatched into an idea to recolor all the major powers. Working on KiF mod gave me confidence to attempt more.
It was never my intention to create color schemes to play tricks on your eyes. The color picks just happen to agree with what a ww2 wargame should look like to my eyes. Even asked for reccommendations from the players here.
The result is, it might be downloaded by a handfull of players.
I can't see things through your eyes Centuur. You want to work with me and create a modified alternate color set for colorblind gamers. Send me a list of colors for each nation.
About 5% of all men have problems in the green-red area. This is the larges group of colorblinds.
This means that you can only use Green for one country if at all possible. You can use light Green and dark Green, but if you do, you can't use any other Green color in between.
The same things happen, if you start using Brown and you are using dark Green too. Those colors are in the same part of the colorshaping. So if you use dark Green, you can't use dark Brown. If you use light Green, you can't use some darker Yellow colors too.
If you use Green, you can't use Red in the counter too, if it has about the same "light" as the green color. So you can use dark Red in light Green and vice versa, but not light Green and light Red together (or dark Red and dark Green).
Now, this list goes on an on, because dark purple looks the same as some Red colors to the majority of colorblind. Black in combination with Red is also difficult. If you would write a post here in red, I would see the text as being black too.
In general, you can't use pastelcolors a lot too. Colors have to stand out for the colorblind. That means using the major ones (as are present in MWIF) and can't deviate a lot.
So, if you are doing a Mod which can satisfy the colorblind, you probably won't be satisfied by it at all.
By the way, I only wanted to react on the question asked by AxelNL how other would feel about it. I just gave my opinion, that's all. Now, perhaps I've overreacted a little, since a lot of people don't acknowledge the problems colorblind can have. Imagine wanting to travel in a city using the underground and not being able to read the poster with the map, because the colors indicating what line goes where all look the same (A personal experience in London in the 1980's)...
This website made by Microsoft should give you an understanding of what to be colorblind is about. I won't know for sure what you will exactly see in the grafics on the top of things, since I'm... colorblind...
