Description: Change them...
There’s a simple way to changing the rocket trail colours, all client side. Here’s how to do it:

Open up cg_weapons.c (located in the cgame folder of the code) Scroll down a bit and you will find the CG_RocketTrail heading. Near the bottom you will see this code:
 CODE  

  smoke = CG_SmokePuff( lastPos, up,
       wi->trailRadius,
       1, 1, 1, 0.33,
       wi->wiTrailTime,
       t,
       0,
       cgs.media.smokePuffShader );


The line that has the 1, 1, 1, 0.33, is the one we want to change. For example, change that line to:
 CODE  

1, 0, 0, 0.33,


Rocket trails will now be red! Here are some more examples:
 CODE  

0, 0, 1, 0.33, // = blue

 CODE  
0, 1, 0, 0.33, // = green


As you probably have figured out by now, the first number is the red amount, the second is the green amount and the third is the blue amount. (the forth is the alpha value, for blending) You can change these values to see all sorts of different coloured rocket trails. Here’s one that really looks cool:
 CODE  

1, 1, 0, 0.33, // = yellow


And yes, I am spelling colour with a “u” because I am Canadian.
