Why not. If we had multiplayer compatible local-only mods ("themes"), that would not only allow the color blind to enhance usability of their game while still being able to participate in vanilla multiplayer.Illiou wrote: ↑Mon Jun 15, 2020 8:22 pmTo be fair, 5% of humans have some colorblindness, 8% of men - which are probably the main audience of this game. This is not something that should be outsourced to mods.
It would also allow people with all sorts of other vision-related problems to do so. There could be low/high contrast themes, night/day mode themes, indeed a theme for each colorblindness variant - and themes featuring different sounds as well.
It would also allow for non-disability-related themes. As an example, there could be a rust (like in iron oxide, not the game) theme, wich makes everything look more rusted.
Sure, the base game needs to be good for the majority of players. But 8%, wich aren't even a homogenous group, aren't the majority.
With theming that wouldn't matter. They would still get a game wich works well for them while it also is looking as intended to the non-colorblind participants of the same multiplayer game.
