I am have no clue how to download scripts now since the script folder is now gone. Could someone guide me how to add them. Also, i am looking for the team script but i cant seem to find it anywhere so a link to it would be very helpful. Thanks.

As a result of a topic about colors handling for the IObject class we realized that there isn't a way to change a tile color through scripts.

I suggest two new entries, one in the IGame, adding a new parameter in the "CreateObject" method, something like "ColorPalette TileColor" and if the tile doesn't permit coloration this parameter won't affect the tile rather than make the script to crash.

The other in the same IObject, a SetColor method with a palette as only parameter, after all, currently we can already get the color palette but without change it in game, it's only needed the reverse operation.

Nope, but it's already part of the planned ScriptAPI changes. No need to suggest it when it's already planned. ;)

Sorry, I could've sworn to have not seen this point in the planned list. :oops:

Able to change color on objects will come in the v.1.1.0 update, as long as the color is available in the color palette.
