Change Units Model's Color

I've tried changing it in Unit -> Model -> Color with no avail. Does it [not] work for anyone else?

I'd really love to know the answer too... But I feel like there cant be done anything if you dont screw around with the texture outside of the editor.

You see how the data field has four fields, and disregarding which color you choose, the first one is always 255?

My take is that this first value controls the transparency, and since it's always set to 255, we never see any color change. Perhaps Blizzard forgot to add a slider to control it?

you can practically modify every value that you can see when you convert it into raw data, by selecting the "view raw data" field. (I'm not saying that it's not at least wierd that you can't change it ^^)

whenever i change it the color is black when i convert it back... really wierd value. However if i leave it as raw data it doesnt do anything either...

I found out a way how to do it.

Basically, we can force the tint of an unit by adding a new event to the actor:
On UnitBirth
Set Tint Color.

Not as nice as changing the actual model's tint, but it does the job.

    does anyone still use silk road forums?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's about as active as here I'd say. Not much going on.
  • Wizard Wizard:
    I think it doesn't help that the silk road game isn't as popular any more I think. The only MMO I play these days is FFXIV like most other people I know.

    Back in the old days when I was getting a license people were getting them at 16 yrs old and many were getting hardships so they could get them earlier. Almost nobody did not drive when they were able. Nowadays though....
