Using a sector tag of 2 (Lotag) in Duke3d will usually get you the underwater pallete. But if you just click 1 on the PAL list, it'd come out blue, 6 for a weird glowing green one and so on..

It's impossible to use different pallettes on different things in 8-bit mode because as it suggest-the screen can display a maximum of only 256 colors at once.

@Graf: dunno about underwater, but for walls/floors/ceilings you can select different colormaps.

The underwater palette is a completely new one I believe!
If you check out Duke´s palette, you´ll notice that there aren´t any purple colors AFAIK (except the bright pink, wich is used as background).
However, if you look at a corpse under water, the blood has a little violet touch in it!

That is entirely true. Things above the water have a normal pallette, under the water have a new one (underwater) but because the water surface occludes Your view You cannot see 2 pallettes at the same time (obvious, otherwise it would render more than 256 colors = impossible). A nice idea of adding more colors.

What about my suggestion? :sadno: This way it would be much easier to add stuff like the Duke-style underwater pallette.

Duke does has purple. At least, Atomic Edition does. Otherwise the last level wouldn't work. It's entirely purple and green, and the last boss is teal and purple.

Only the new acid uses purple/violet colors, the level is actually gray and green, and a lot of underwater areas. And the queen is blue, but you're fighting it underwater so...
