I fail to see a reason behind why some colour combinations are restricted, and was wondering if these could be removed since they just seem to limit creativity with your flags.
For example, if I want an industrial black/grey logo that is normally impossible to make in the game. I understand some colour combinations could potentially induce vomiting in humans and that might be the reason behind the restrictions but I'm sure players would naturally avoid this.
Edit: Maybe another possible reason is that black/black flags would hide charges in multiplayer, but similar colours could still keep the restriction. Other than those two somewhat weak reasons I can't fathom why this is a thing that exists.
Er... Is there any specific reason to why you chose to change your heraldry?
Not really, I was just messing around with it and noticed a lot of the colour combinations I wanted to try were locked for no reason.
It's the rule of tincture :)
You may apply for special imperial dispensation to break it, though. Just let me know what colour combination you'd like, and if it's acceptable to my whims, I'll set it for you.
Ahhhh, makes sense now. Could you try putting my banner on a grey/black combination and see how it looks?
Like this? Very dark and muddy. How about red on black? That's sort of traditional in off-rule coats of arms.
Oh god it's horrible you were right! Yeah lets try red/black.
Maybe if the black was grey it may look nicer, otherwise I think I'll just adhere to the rule of tincture.
Edit: actually on second thought that might muddle it up even more. I'm kinda getting used to the dark crest, I dunno.
