    Bright model, not fully green

    What used to bug me, was a green map. I had all green Keels running around, and a small green object was easily mistakable as one of them. And a green Keel was easily mistakable as a wall.
    So I switched to green upper body, pink head, and orange legs. All bright ofcourse.
    I've been using this for about a year now I think, and I rarely ever mistake enemies with backgrounds. But I've never seen or heard of anyone else doing this.

    Am I a genius who invented a new tweak for everyone's config, or is there a reason why nobody does what I did?

    Out of my head, Hidden Fortress has some green parts where I used to have problems seeing enemies in quick snap views.
    Toxicity or any other map with slime has green parts.

    Edit: Also about any map with water.

    I use similar 3-colored enemy models since a long time (it was also available in a few q3 mods). Mine is yellow-pink-yellow. I'm sure many player use this and any other available config tweaks.

    Benefits over the default green:
    - it doesn't blend with background on any map
    - it's easier to aim at the vertical middle of enemy model
    - pink is good to humiliate the enemy

    Hm, even having a partial color shade blindness, I don't actually have troubles with bright/green keel and Silence/Toxicity.
    VG278HE@144Hz + EC2evo + Manticor + Lycosa+ SS Siberia v2

    QL doesn't need more tiers, it needs more players (С)

    I used a bright red keel on winter's edge.
