To do so, you must change the language file of your choice. in this example the English location file.

1.) go to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Naval Action\Languages"

2.) rename the "_English.csv" file to (for instance) - "English_color.csv". it's important not use the underscore in front of the file. this file is also then selected in game.

3.) open the renamed file with a text editor like notepad++ or similar.

edit now the text messages you want to change

for group invite it would be then:

"ChatControl/ContactContextMenu/GroupInvite",<color=green>"Group Invite"</color>

for the combat news:

"OW/CombatChat/PlayerSankPlayer","<color=red>{0}</color> sank <color=green>{1}.</color>"
"OW/CombatChat/PlayerBoardedPlayer","<color=red>{0}</color> boarded <color=green>{1}.</color>"
"OW/CombatChat/PlayerSankPlayerNearPort","<color=red>{0}</color> sank <color=green>{1}</color> near <color=yellow>{2}.</color>"
"OW/CombatChat/PlayerBoardedPlayerNearPort","<color=red>{0}</color> boarded <color=green>{1}</color> near <color=yellow>{2}.</color>"

or:

"OW/CollisionPanel/ShallowsWarning",<color=red>"Shallows!"</color>

Sail Status information:

"OW/SailState/Stop",<color=red>"Stop"</color>
"OW/SailState/DeadSlow",<color=red>"Dead
Slow"</color>
"OW/SailState/BattleSails",<color=yellow>"Battle
Sails"</color>
"OW/SailState/Slow",<color=yellow>"Slow"</color>
"OW/SailState/Half",<color=yellow>"Half"</color>
"OW/SailState/Full",<color=green>"Full"</color>

4.) save the file

5.) select the file in the language file options in game.

this is just an example what you can do and have fun when being creative.
