you make a single texture with lots of colors and you rename the ENT to point to your texture

I'm thinking you want SEVERAL versions of the tank in various colors, not ONE multicolored tank, correct?
Basically, any tank must have an entity file associated with it. The Entity file tells the game what color to put on the outside of a tank, among other things, like how much armour, how fast, etc.
You can copy these entity files and assign new bitmaps for the tank skin, and then rename them "Blue dwarf" or "yellow dwarf" so that they would be there to choose from. I hope that helps...
Best way to play with the game is do a second install of TM and call it experimental TM or something. You can play with all kinds of files and not mess up your regular game.

The general rule is that as long as it is distributed for free and that you acknowledge in a readme file what the items are derived from our work.... copyright Longbow Digital Arts, etc. ....then you can set up and distribute a set of modified tanks.

please JIM / LDA post an example of how a readme text file should state copyright, and any other things needed stated if a tank color has been changed and given freely to some one to make a server pack with . thanks gbv.

Keep it short.

Just say something like.... "these mods utilize content that is copyright Longbow Digital Arts"
