When I logged in I did a 'newbie last' and saw someone complaining that
their 'swamps' terrain showed up as a dull yellow color rather than the
bright red from 'describe map'. When I connect with tinyfugue through
a putty session, my swamps are indeed bright red, but if I connect
through batclient they do show up as dull yellow, both in the map window
and in the realm map. Perhaps batclient is intepreting the ansi
colors incorrectly. Or maybe there is a setting in batclient that I
default, but isn't.

The batclient protocol actually has nothing to do with ANSI colors; they have
their own escape sequences which feature full 24-bit rgb color. That, in turn,
means that the DevTeam(tm) actually wants the swamps to be dull yellow, and
the ansi bold red is a crude approximation ;)

Lotheac is right - the colors used for terrain in the batclient are not
linked to the limited ansi color sequences (fun useless fact: many terrains
actually have a "texture map" applied to it to make subtle differences
in colors in the batclient, taking advantage of the 24bit palette).

Personally, I do not know of a whole lot of bright red swamps, a mix between
green, yellow and brown seems more appropriate.

Thanks guys, this explain my confusion early about swamp color :)

imho, red swamp color is pretty dangerous for squishy backrow e.g. tarma who
want to reach ramona got ambushed by aggro snake or so, aggro s is red as well
as swamp :D
