This is something that I really want to change, but I can't find it in any menu or file. I believe it's coded into the software, I'm specifically talking about GtkRadiant 1.5 and NetRadiant, specifically idTech4 support.

The func_group entity makes brushes black and I'd like it to be something that jives better with a dark theme.

I've been tolerating it for many years but I thought I'd ask here and try my luck...

I think the color is defined in the "entities.def" file. Like all the other colors, entity box sizes and models.

Oh wow, absolutely! I was changing the entities.def file, but it was actually the func.def inside the PK4 that finally made the difference. All this time I was poking around in the wrong files...

Thanks a million. :cool:

It's actually "entities.ent" file for Radiant 1.5 and its forks like NetRadiant.

That's interesting and I might have figured that out, except the Quake 4 gamepack never included an ent file. I suppose I could just make one.

So it seems Radiant gets its colours first from those ent files > then packed def files > then extracted def files > then its own defaults.
