A premium account is required for color coding. It’s used to organize your map to make alliances, individual players, or even individual settlements stand out. Here’s what your map overview probably looks like before color coding:
There’s nothing wrong with a map like this, it shows your allies, NAPs, and enemies. Everything that is essential is provided.
But if you’re interested in the other alliances in or around your area, you might want to consider color coding, which can make your map look like this:
This is a color coded map. It’s organized into the alliances near my settlement, so I can see who’s where, and who’s a threat or not.
Now you know what color coding does. Now if you need help doing it for yourself, I’ll teach you how to do it.
Firstly, open up your Map. There will be a key at the bottom, showing the colors used for allies, NAPs, and enemies etc. At the bottom left from there you’ll see the option “Player:” Click that and you’ll be brought to a new window titled “Edit player’s colors”. Keep in mind the alliance(s) or players you’d like to add to the map. Go to “Object Type” and select the type object you’ll be color coding. Player, Settlement, and Alliance are the options. Let’s say you selected alliance. Now go to “Object Name” and type in the alliance’s tag. To provide an example, I chose to mark the alliance EoD on my map:
Click “Create” and it’ll add it to your map. You can add up to 10 alliances, settlements, or players to your color coded map. This is a vital tool for leaders and diplomats and warlords, as it helps strategize good tactics for your situation.
