Version 1.4 is now out.
Slightly edited colours to improve diversity and overall look.
Edited colour assignments to improve diversity.
I had some feedbacks about SOV not being quite red enough. Could you please check if you can do something about it? Please don't make it too red though.
At least, that's what they say. I personally don't mind but this is a recurrent critic.
Another solution could be to turn the UK blue (19th UK is red but WW2 UK should be blue). It could be a strong (but not dark) blue whereas France would have a light/clear blue. Ofc counters need to be adjusted.
And perhaps it could even be useful to turn Japan red (that is also how they are painted in most WW2 wargame maps). Problem is to distinguish Japan with Soviet Russia...
So I have adjusted the colour of the Soviet Union. Try it out:
I don't think I'll include it in my pack though. I wanted as many countries as I can to have an element of lightness to it, just to avoid "good" and the "evil" stereotypes. But it just about remains within the pallet of the rest of the countries.
Could you please post a screen)shot of how it looks? I don't have the game installed here.
No worries, I'm just playing around with ideas and colors. I like the original set very much. I am wondering if it would be better with Blue UK and Red Japan.
It doesn't look wildly different. But it's probably the best I can do without it standing out too much. I really like the original colour...not sure why people don't think it's red enough. Red is red :/
I have seen a blue and green UK before and I like it. The trouble with blue though, is that the UK, US and France would look very much like the "good guy team", which may be historically true but I suppose it depends on how people play. I know the Soviet puppets have a mostly socialist colour theme, but it seems to work.
Also, a red Japan might not work because of its shared border with the Soviets...might look a bit like a puppet. Yellow does seem slightly race based, but I think it suits the ideology too. A blue could suit China though (the blue shirts).
Either way, it should be easy to play around and see what you can do. Might work out well. I might try it out too.
Don't worry. UpperLorraine does nothing but complain about Paradox Interactive, other people on the forum, and the games themselves. Definitely no need to concern yourself with that individuals complaints.
It's a classic case of teenage angst, especially with the defense mechanism of 'HURR HURR I AM 21 I WORK EA. I AM BETTER THAN U LEAV MI ALONE."
The colours are okay, but I think you should still continue work on them.
