  • [Suggestion] Distinguish neutral creeps' hp bar

    Hi, would you consider making neutral creeps' hp bar different color (grey, yellow, purple could work). I sometimes find it confusing when fighting in woods with some creep controling hero. It's not that big issue, but it's an idea

    hmm, sounds quite nice, can you upload a picture of what you think is best?

      Here is how I think it could work... In my recent game friend got killed by chen controlled satyr, becouse he didn't notice he was chen's
      This is how it looks from player's perspective

      This is modified so the uncontrolled neutrals have other color than standard enemies. The big satyr is already controlled by chen, smaller one is true netural, hence he has different color hp bar.

      I think this can improve decision making ability of players (on a bit higher level of play at least)

        Ok Valve, you did this, but not quite enough
        I can see this implemented for spectating purposes, but I think it could be useful even for actual players

          Yeah I would love to see it for actual players as well.

              I think you are able to do so with commands

              dota_neutral_color_b
              dota_neutral_color_g
              dota_neutral_color_r

              You will change the healthbar colour I think. I tried dota_friendly_color and dota_enemy_color and it changed.

                    Agreed, this could prove useful for players as well.

                      I tried it, but it only seems to change the color of their marks on the minimap. HP bars stay the same - red
