It's time for a discussion about an upcoming planned feature in FTE: The ability to colorize your teammates as easy as possible.
For technical progress in this area, feel free to post feedback about the feature or join #fte @ Quakenet.

How would you like the configuration to work? Assign color tints to certain nicknames? Assign skins to certain nicknames?

Example 1 (single color, custom skin):
colorize molgrum 0x00ff00 molgrum.pcx -> You'll see "molgrum" in your team as molgrum.pcx with a green topcolor/bottomcolor.

Example 2 (two colors, no skin):
colorize molgrum 0xff0000.0x00ff00 -> You'll see "molgrum" in your team as cl_teamskin with a red topcolor and green bottomcolor.

Example 3 (single color, no skin):
colorize molgrum 0xff00ff -> You'll see "molgrum" in your team as cl_teamskin with a purple topcolor/bottomcolor.

These are some ideas that could be realized very soon, if you have other ideas don't hesitate to post them.

Links to test binaries will be posted after the discussion.
Thank you.

I only have 1 suggestion, and that's to change:
"colorize molgrum"
into:
"colourise molgrum"

The first one is American crap and the second one is real English.

The "0x" is rather unnecessary and overly complicated, isn't it?
I love the idea.

Test binaries are up:

Windows
Linux
Mac OS X (Tiger)
MorphOS

Commands are "colourise" or "colorize", they work the same. Examples:
colourise molgrum xf00
colorize molgrum x0000f0
colourise molgrum x0f0.x00f monkey.pcx
