Two requests :

1) Make player color selectable rather than random, so we stop getting people leaving and rejoining repeatedly just to not be pink.

2) Limit name changes to once every 60 seconds or something.

I like this (these) ideas. I'd like to see a colour selctor (a la Armagetron, for those who have played it), but the inherent problem with that is people having the same colours. Tack on a "rejoin max of once per 60 seconds" like your name changing idea... or m,aybe make it "once per round" would be better. Once per round would mean you could do it *once*, but if you did it more you'd miss a round.

Also, "admin cbx DontSuck" doesn't seem to work.

The color selection would have to be limited to the remaining available colors.

Colour selection is available for the next release, but I'm not sure yet if it limits you to available colours or not....
I was thinking about that, however, and why would we really care if two (or more) people picked the same colour? Also, we could run out of colours before a server is full!
The way it is now we end up with people with the same colours - doesn't seem to be a big deal. (Funny sometimes, actually, like the other night when I planned out my DH shot, then discovered I was looking at the wrong bastage lol)

Hi all,

good ideas !! And maybe cut the length of names. :roll:
Somtimes names are so long - that u cant see the kills in the score-list.
But ..... maybe a tactic. :lol:

Yes it limits you to available colors.

Not sure I guess not. How many people use the colors rather than the names?

Shouldn't happen there are 25 colors.

One is reserved for the admin text and such like.

I also thought it would be nice to have the persons color represented on the tank. So far I have not done it as it would mean a different texture for each tank, even if they were the same model. However, it is an option.

Not a big deal, but it would be nice if there were more colors to pick from. There are lots of oranges/reds but not many greens/blues (especially darker versions). Also, it seems that sometimes the color you want is not shown.

How about a different color picking method, instead of a random list of some of the 25 colors, you would see a grid of all the possible colors. A 6x6 grid would give you 36 colors, see example.

The color you want is not shown when someone is already using it.

Why no black or really dark grey?
