    [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:

    Could you modify your first post and add these links, so people searching for the dota 2 colorblind mod can find them?
    You can credit my name or not, but please do add these links to the post! Thank you.

    Thank me, and spread the word.
