Default Christmas is coming. Why Red vs Blue
Reply With Quote


Anyone that knows me, I pretty much just play Onslaught. Why does it always have to be red vs blue? Doesn't domination have the option of green and yellow teams? Would it be possible to have red vs green in onslaught for Christmas?

Plus... I find that, even though I like the night time minus-tank maps, the dark blue dragon is too difficult to see against the night time sky. Where as the red dragon is easier. Kind of gives the blue team the advantage. Why not red vs yellow on that map?

I don't have the code right here at the moment, but I think red and blue is hardcoded in several places into the Onslaught gametype itself:
- Radar map overlays
- Localized UI messages
- Announcer sounds
- Vehicle skins
- Player skins
- Scoreboard UI and team selection
- Node and core skins and particle effects
- Link beam color
- Nodes construct their own location strings based on their current team color
- Not sure if the HUD overlay for the nodes from Wormbo's Onslaught Specials would be compatible
- Colors get switched after each round

Just saying that it's not a simple change. A lot of things would need to be taken into account, some mods might not work correctly with it. All in all a lot of potential work just for a change of tapestry that doesn't offer anything new to gameplay.

And color blind people can't tell the difference between red & green...

Been playing Star Wars Battlefront on the PS4 quite a bit. Took me a while to get used to this: you're always blue, the enemy is always red.

I'm coming more and more to dislike that brightskins thing on vehicles (not exactly brightskins but you know what I mean). They look cool but are bad in game. I wish that trend had never started. I regret continuing it with the Goliath II. I would rather have no team colors on vehicles. The Basilisk has great skins.

??? What vehicle has brightskins? I can't think of any vehicle that has that bright team glow like in Freon.

I was exaggerating. That's why I said "not exactly brightskins but you know what I mean". Compare the abomination that's on the Mino to the original Goliath and that's what I'm talking about. All the stock vehicles were sort of military looking with subtle brown and green team colors but at some point it went all full blown colorful hot-rod.

Ah, okay. Thanks. I knew the name but couldn't remember what vehicle it was.
