Mini Map Ship colours

16 posts in this topic

Firstly, thank you for your time -- this is my very first stab at this...but I am not wholely unfamiliar with your good work -- that said.

I am Red Green Colourblind -- and yes I know that the game has a "colour blind setting" -- which sucks -- what I really need and would like to know if it's even possible is the ability to change the enemy colour from red to blue -- or even better yellow -- like you can in WoTanks --on the mini map.   I tend to rely on the mini map a lot and when  the red ship enters the red capture base or is on the edge of an island it disappears -- can't tell you how many times I have sailed right across a dd in plain sight to everyone except me...

Again thanks

Scott

Hi

 

Could you please try this? I played with minimap file for you this morning, it's not blue or yellow, but maybe can work for you?

 

Unpack it to WoWs folder.

You are welcome. Out of curiosity have you played with the in-game CB options? When i set them to full intensity and select the latest one, the enemy colors looks just like I colored them:

Thanks -- sorry for the long delay in the response -- was logged out -- and didn't get notification -- yes I have tried this and it looks hideous as you can see -- what you have done with the mini map alone is ideal -- almost perfect...one thing now that 0.6.0 can I just move the files into the 0.6.0 file?

I am glad that more and more games have support for color blind filters/color shift built into their base clients and support modifying the interface via add-ons/mods for those who need more support. I also play World of Warcraft and it too has options for these things, and I'm glad for it.

 

I'm hard of hearing so it's the visual cues (flash the screen in WoW if something happens, bigger torpedo icons in Warships) that help me.

 

Thanks to Aslain and all those who pitch in to help us. :)

Please test it, I'm not sure if I made that minimap ship icons correctly, they may need some more love: minimap.swf

The CB patch you created worked up until 0.6.6.0 -- they added a new PVE mode and have added symbols to the map -- so now it crashes -- the mods still work - sort of- in the Co-Op, Random and Ranked battles -- but it's buggy -- anyway you could monkey around with it...

 

thanks
