Currently all teams >= 9 get teal as color. data/core/team-colors.cfg knows 6 more colors though, which can be set by WML. (even more with the terrain colors, which I didn't look at)
Proposal: moving the border to 15.

Comparision of colors – first line being the 9 default ones:

  • lightblue: easy to spot
  • gold: easy to spot on map, a bit less on minimap
  • brightorange: same, but similar to gold
  • darkred: not similar to red, thouth can't be distinguished on minimap
  • lightred: same, but easy to mix with brown + orange
  • brightgreen: easy to spot

Possible numbering:

  • 10 gold
  • 11 lightblue
  • 12 brightgreen
  • 13 darkred
  • 14 brightorange
  • 15+ lightred

other notes:

  • In the MP game setup colors 1-9 can be choosen in the pull down list. If one of the other colors is specified by WML, then it are 10 in this one pulldown only. That can stay as is, keeping the pulldown short.
  • minimap color for lightred and darkred seems to be a bug.

When adding new color mappings, would be nice to define more colors too like (pink and yellow especially)

minimap color for lightred and darkred seems to be a bug.

If I recall correctly, the fourth colour in the [color_range] is used for minimap and text, so perhaps it needs tweaking?

Actually, as an aside, it might be nice to deprecate the rgb= key in [color_range] in favour of four separate descriptive keys that indicate exactly what each of the colours means. The way it currently stands makes it look like a range similar to the palettes, but in fact each of the four colours has a specific use.
