    Crossfaction raiding

    Hey folks!

    In the mangosd.conf is that trigger for crossfaction grouping ([url]https://github.com/mangoszero/server/blob/master/src/mangosd/mangosd.conf.dist.in#L824[/url]). This works flawless for 5 man groups. But as long as you try to build a raid with alliance and horde players, things get messed up.

    For example... take a ZG raid with mainly horde characters. Now they need some alliance players to be able to head to Zul'Gurub.
    Now comes the issue:

    The Alliance player will be displayed hostile (while he isn't really attackable by raid members) in that raid.
    He is only able to heal/purge/dispell (any kind of those interaction) his group member since they are all displayed friendly to him. The rest of the raid has red names.

    So, this makes the crossfaction thingy harder because it's not working as expected.

    Could be, that the issue could be solved by turning those red names into green ones somehow (I'm not a dev).

    From what I can tell, the only way to do this would be to move raid members into the same faction, then back again when the raid is disbanded. Not sure that it is a good way to do it, and a bit of a hack, plus a bit of a mare to figure out the best possible faction to use.

    I could find nothing within the core that sets the player characters to being friendly towards each other when the group is formed, so I reckon it must be the client that on receiving a notification of the group being formed, automatically sets all members of that group to be friendly towards each other (do I hear an "ooo err, missus" ?).

    Obviously, this setting, by the client, of being friendly towards other groups, does not happen when the group is converted to a raid.

    Of course, I could be wrong, and it is set within the core somewhere.
