    Anonymous Army Mod
    Anonymous names and colors for Planetary Annihilation: Titans
    Allocate shuffled player names and colours. You can play with anonymity.

    In The Lobby
    The colour of the other team is displayed in white. And you cannot see the other teams colour.

    When Starting
    The colour of the other team is displayed in white. And you cannot see the other teams colour.

    In Game
    The player's name will be anonymized and the order will be shuffled.

    The other players cannot see AI color in lobby, but can other players see AI colors in game?

    All players can check the colors during the game, but the names are anonymized and can not be seen.

    Can we get a checkbox in the sidebar to enable/disable this, rather than switching the mod on and off?

    Doesn't being able to see what Commander other players picked break the anonymity?

    I feel that the host being able to see the AI colours is giving the host an advantage. Why not simply not let the host see or configure AI colour?

    The mod prevents spectators from seeing eco and army information pertaining to players.

    That's a wonderful idea. I also wanted it. I would like to implement it as soon as I know how to implement it.

    During the game, neither color nor name will be anonymized in the spectator.

    But what is hidden is metal income, energy income, army size, army metal, fabber count, factory count, etc. None of this should be hidden.

    Thank you for the report. That is a bug.
    The fixed version v1.0.5 has been released.

    I should also point out that being able to see Commander will tell you want faction someone is playing as, further ruining anonymity where such mods are in use.
