Perhaps use the team flag as a side indicator?

I somehow doubt that will work very well with the darker TC colors, especially black. Was there any forum discussion about this before?

I noticed that it can be difficult to determine which team is talking in scenarios with many sides and even with few sides for new scenarios to the player.

My idea is to color the name of the unit in messages with the team color to help differentiate this. I am referring to messages via the standard [message] WML tag.
