Now, if I remembered right and you can figure out how to use flicster, the issue I couldn't figure out back then had to do with the color palette.  chuft's how-to might be enough to figure that part out.  He certainly addresses that.

i change something in my ready custom faction
i play some match and i redit colours faction of confederacy because :
first- when primary colour is black i don't see the number up the base because the square remain all black
so i try to put the same faction colour of spartan faction but the command letter (H, G, F, ...)  inside shield of the units are black so black remain the shield
second- i put a light purple-pink colour as primary faction colour but borders (faction landborder) are too light and they confuse them with grouns colours
i've had serious problems to assign right colour of faction borders expecially to found relative alpha percent colour
someone can explaine me this step

There's something hard-coded to make the black faction color work for the Spartans.  The only way to get Spartanlike colors would be to save the the Confederacy in place of the Spartans.

If I'm misunderstanding, some screenshots showing what you mean would help.

right, but following this way i'm going to create confederacy with the trasparency of spartan (pinl colour). i read somewhere, in past, there are some problems to play the same game with factions that use different background trasparency (as crash during playing for long time turns)

what i wanna mean is how to know the right colour to put in place reserve to alpha percent colour under border colour square. i belive is determinant to appear in game the colour of faction landborder, i belive it by the attempts i try

another thing is to not play togheter two faction with main colour faction (and faction landborders colour)

i see various faction colours have borders confused with groud colour (expecially the colours with brown, orange and light red tendence), so these it can't using them into

i see also it occure to put right alpha percent colour (second square bottom faction border colour) in .pcx file to work correcltly landborders (watch original faction to understand the combinations i'm talking)

Well, the thing is to contrast your main faction color with something very dark or vary light - it makes the faction color stand out sharply.  Strong contrast is key.

soon i post my last 3 faction so you can understand how i've do

i found colour like yellow, brown, black need white as alpha percent colour to have correct land border

maybe others colours too, I could almost say white is correct alpha percent colour for all
