trying to change color of weapons on floor

Good day, does anyone know how I might change the color of maces & flails on the floor? I've been stumped for days. Reading crawl_options suggests that the option 'feature = ' might be able to do it, but I haven't been able to work out the syntax. Even irc hasn't been able to answer, and using google fu on develz rcfiles hasn't turned up anything either.

Re: trying to change color of weapons on floor

Can't be done without changing the source code. The function that assigns colours to items is item_colour in makeitem.cc, and it does not use any kind of overriding mechanism. If you are playing locally, you could edit that file and compile.

A similar question: is it possible to change the colour of TSO's halo without going into the source?

You can manually edit the PNG file that contains the mace with an image editor, then save over the original file with your altered-color file. Don't change any sizes or positions.

Sorry, should have mentioned that I'm playing terminal, not tiles. I guess the plan now is to tweak my terminal settings so that I don't think it's curare every time i see a club. :arrow:

Nope. You could use the colour option in your rc file:

colour.yellow = blue

but that line will replace yellow with blue everywhere.

As long as we're on the subject, I'd really like it if the devs changed the color of rods to differentiate them from enhancer staves.

Good idea. I changed it so rods are yellow now, and staves are brown.

Wasn't yellow one of the artefact colours?
Please report bugs to Crawl's bug tracker, and leave feedback on the development wiki. Thank you!

It is, but rods/staves are on '|', which doesn't have artefacts (fixed or random). I suppose if crawl ever got randart rods (or something like that), mundane rods should get a different colour. For now it's safe to use, though.
