Texture Color Schemes

When a mechwarrior falls in battle, what does she leave to legacy?

Texture Color Schemes

Slapped together these pics to show where I'm headed with coloration for each faction.

So wait, you're not doing teamcoloured units? What's your plan for team indicators? Platters?

Most units will have teamcolour gibbins and bits, some more than others, but yes platters will be the primary way of seeing whose units are whose.

Here are some renders for Team colouration. Note the texture for the Catapult isn't done, but sufficient to show the idea behind side colours.

There's a couple possibilities for each faction and I'm trying to settle on one as the "default" scheme.

Federated Suns

Image
A basic Olive drab colour.

Image
An olive-hued camo pattern.

Image
A tan colour reminiscent of modern US military in pop culture, which is a theme I'd wanted to go before given Federated Suns theme of being standard generic American-style military.

Lyran Alliance

Image
A solid blue with asymetric white half-torso.

Image
A dull blue "Marine" digital pattern, which I quite like.

Image
A much more vibrant blue hue on the camo pattern which Flozi likes.

Draconis Combine

Image
A typical and completely impractical Draconis solid red.

Image
A slightly less bright red.

Image
A much more subtle red-hued camo pattern.

Free Worlds League

Image
Ridiculous typical Marik purple colour.

Image
Similar vein to Lyrans', take a ridiculously impractical colour and turn it into a digital camo pattern.

Image
Much more subdued but still slightly purply.

Capellan Confederation

Image
A typical brighter emerald green solid colour.

Image
A splotch camo pattern in bright greens, reminds me a lot of China, whom Capellans are supposed to be mostly based on.

Image
Green digital.

Image
This was an accident made while making the above pattern, and I actually kinda like it.


Here they all are in a single image file for easier viewing:

So there are a bunch of options, but I'm looking for a "Default" for each faction. Something that suits them. If we use a paint-changing mechanic I expect all of these patterns to be available.

Alright, I've settled on 5 colour schcmes, one for each of the Inner Sphere factions, that are all relatively unique and easy to recognize.

could you have it so the factions have specific color but the team color controls the secondary color; so the variation that you have in those sets of 3 would be controlled via the players choice while the other 90% of the color is faction based?
