Hello, I will take a stab at this question:
Unit colors are set by the scenario designer.
For me, I use a graphix mod that "highlights" for easier view, the "formations" that have been set by the scenario designer.
Will post the graphix mod I use in a few...need to find it first.
EDIT: I have been using Telumar's "BLUE" grafx mod, not the map mod, but the "BLUE" GUI has the "highlight" on formations that is very helpful to me.
Link to his discussion is here:
NB note: I used the "BLUE GUI" file from that first link in that message, I dropped that unzipped file into my "Graphics Override" folder, along w/ a few of the tiles from the other link (most particularly, broken RR and and blown bridges mods) but for me, the BLUE GUI was very helpful in seeing formations. It "highlights" the formations much better than the TOAW default. See, e.g., some of my more recent AARs to see the better highlights on formations.
Also, please familiarize yourself w/ how TOAW grafx works before using these mods, and be careful to "secure" any defaults you might want to restore if you don't like the mods ... for me, some of Telumar's modifications were too "bright" for my eyes, and I had to tweak a lot of settings before getting it to work to my liking.
I hope this helps!
