[Suggestion] Different Color Damage Numbers

    It's hard to tell who's doing what damage because all the floating damage numbers are the same color, and the creatures are spaced so close together that you can barely see what damage floats over their heads when in tight combat situations.

    The immediate listing of damage numbers I'd like to see a color selection menu for are:

    - Monster Damaging Player
    - Player Damaging Monster
    - Monster Damaging Pet
    - Pet #1 Damaging Monster
    - Pet #2 Damaging Monster
    - Pet #3 Damaging Monster
    - Pet #4 Damaging Monster
    - Pet #5 Damaging Monster

    The menu could be simple: have a color chart selector next to each damager listed above. You could make Monster Damages Player & Monster Damages Pet to Red, Player Damages Monster & Pet #1-5 set to Green, etc. This would be so cool! Please consider it.

    *adds it to his list of things to try to mod*

    Before anybody gets their hopes up though, I think we only have the info on who is being damaged, so this might require developer work. It's been a while since I've looked at that code though.

    Hmm... I think in the early closed beta, you could see in the system journal a detailed list of who is doing damage to who. At least you own pets were included in some way. Sorry don't remember the exact details, but the info seems to be available to the client somehow. If it is accessable by mods, is another story...
