The colors for vehicle icons are assigned automatically from a predefined palette.
The first vehicle takes on the left-most color, the second vehicle takes on the next color in the order, and so on. If there are more vehicles than colors in the palette, the vehicles will take on lighter or darker variants of the colors in the palette. No two vehicle icons on the map will have the exact same color.
Specific colours can only be applied by going to Map>Highlight Groups>*desired group*. This will set all vehicle icons belonging to the desired group to the group’s predefined color and all excluded vehicles to gray
When a vehicle is classified as not communicating, its color is set to black.
