[Suggestion] Color-Blind Mode
I found an old thread about this, but did not wish to necro it. And sorry if I'm missing any norms, here, as it's my first post. Please tell me if I'm doing anything wrong. :x
Way back when, Dota2 had a "color-blind mode" which, to the best of my knowledge, didn't do anything. Well, I'm not certain how difficult it would be to implement a method of making an option for, say, all of the green bars to turn blue, given that red-green color-blindness is one of the most common forms, but given that players can already change the map colors of units at will with the console, it can't be entirely too difficult to accomplish this, right?
And I will admit, while I am not color-blind, I have a bit of a selfish stake in this, as my best friend is red-green colorblind and I can't share this game with him, as he can't tell friend from foe at a glance.
Also, according to the all powerful Wikipedia, 8% of males (key audience) are in some way red-green deficient.
Thank you for your consideration!
A member of the community has made a colorblind mod and asked me to share it. Look here:
Everyone thank him in the most grotesque ways you can imagine.

Yes we need this. My friend can't plau
+1! Also have a friend who is colour blind like this
+1 Green and red blindness is a bummer.
+1 Because it shouldn't be hard to implement yet it would benefit a lot of people.
I agree this makes sense, but I don't think this alone should prevent anyone from playing. There are other ways to adjust your colors, like through your video card settings (for some cards anyway). Maybe they can do this until a color blind is implemented, assuming it is (I do remember it showing in the old settings UI).

dota_enemy_color_x [rgb value, range clamped from 0-1]
That should help a bit.
Any way to change the health bars color, it would be perfect for me if allies health bars be light blue and the enemy's something like orange, it would help a looot.
Those are also the same colors used in one of the call of duty´s colorblind mode, it was great.
i agree i am color blind also and during team fights it can get really confusing on who to target. It's a serious disadvantage. Blue for friendly and orange for enemy is how MW3 has it and it works great. Please implement this ASAP.
^This as a qick fix.
