    Alright, I want to say great idea. Awesome idea. I thought that the default color scheme would be great since every enemy should be red and all allies blue. Kill red save blue, easy peasy. But I have a problem with it. Why do enemies show up as colors other than red?

    I've seen green magriders and sunderers and nearly died walking up to an enemy sunderer that showed up green on the minimap. I've seen pink and purple and orange and green radar blips and vehicles driving and flying around. Why are they not red!?

    I reset my colours to faction colours because it stays the same no matter what character you log into.

    Blue = NC

    Dark Red = TR

    Bright Purple = VS

    I had to go with Dark Red and Bright Purple because sometimes the colours were a little confusing when Bright Red and Bright Purple or Dark and Dark.

    The only issue I have is when I am in a platoon and they have colours similar to what I set my factions on. Ran up to a Green icon tank on my mini map thinking it was a friend and died. I had to stop using green for NC :)
