As soon as I finish all my university assignments we will resume the show.
As a bonus to all you peeps for waiting, I will be showing one of my assignments and discussing the techniques used etc.
A preview(work in progress) can be found here

Even tho you desecrated the artist tavern by posting requests in the general section...
Ideally, you would want a custom decal with a team color and some alpha.
As far as terrain conforming goes, I can not confirm that they stop conforming when scaled up, but I also fail to see the issue.
You can just change the scale to something that works, and is half the size of what you need. Then place 4 of them. Or something similar.
And while this may work, I doubt it will look up to standards ingame, as a design solution.
Looking at multiple, often ugly colors, during a game is not something I'd consider awesome.
I suggest looking into other methods of ownership indication.
Well, making a good unwrap takes a long time, usually over 2 hours. So I can't really think of a way to explain this without making a very long post.
I did show unwrapping on ModCraft. Episode1 had the pure basics, and Episode 2, I think, had some slightly more complex stuff.
Perhaps you should check it out. You can find the ModCraft thread, with all the recordings here.
If you enable Face selection(press 3), and look in the Unwrap UVW dialog, there is a Normalize Mapping(or something like that) checkbox.
Unchecking it will cause your UV clusters to keep their scale, but will make them huge(so you need to scale them down later on).
Anyway, watch the tutorial. It covers unwrapping.
