how to brighten colors

Sun Aug 29, 2010 7:26 pm

Is there a way to brighten the colors, for instance in the political map mode? I just want all the colors not so rich and dark.

I have looked in the colors.xls file, but see no entries for the map modes, or for individual countries.

Thx for any help.

[later]

For the political map mode, which was really bothering me with the dark colors, the file to change is /data/db/goldscenarios/[scenario name]/nations.csv. In that file there is a line for each country with a color.

To give an idea what can be done in the nations.csv file, here is a before and after for the diplomacy mode, showing parts of Germany, Russia, and Austria. Perhaps the contrast isn't enough in the modified version, but I haven't settled on exactly the colors I want - I just wanted it lighter.

Are you able to distinguish the control of areas using such contrast? :blink:

Well, like I said, I'm still adjusting the colors. But here you see that Russia is slightly brownish, Austria is slightly greenish. Germany is slightly grayish, but that hardly shows up at all.

And I can actually see the border.
