have the unknown colors been removed from shipmaker 3.0 (the one that ships with v0.86a) or is it a bug?

I just can't find that purple anywhere.. or greyish light brown if I ever got around to changing it after installing a new version :P

Select core, and click 'change colour'. Repeat until desired colour is selected.

There's only four selectable in the shipmaker;

Player
Ally
Pirate
Alien

In that order. The 5th scheme is unused except in the options menu.

well uh.. how the heck do I pick alien? or the fifth for that matter?

right click --> change colour --> default color ----> 1. type 1 (its player) 2. type 2 (its ally) 3. type 3 (its pirate) and uh.. that's pretty much all that can be found from that menu, so I'm lost in space and confuzzled ^__^'

4th = aliens, and you cannot pick the fifth. At all.

Ed: Hmmm, I see what you mean. There is no type 4 for cores. Very unusual.

I think, however, that any ship coloured using the Ally colours will show up in Alien colours if spawned as an enemy. Not 100% sure.

Umm I think if you make it the allied ship colour (Type 2, I think) it will be the Alien ship colour when spawned as an enemy.

you were right, I tested it with a quick shoddy alien ship, picked type 2, allied one became that cyan we all know (and love? :P), and the enemy did indeed become that alium purple o.o .. a suggestion would to name type 2 allied/alien instead :P its confusing

as a sidenote, never make anything that has 4 point beams, an impeder and only interceptable weapons, and pit two of them against each other. bleeergh after they destroyed each other's scatterbeams by .. well, scattering with beams, they just kept shooting down the pipes of each others' tachyon guns with point beams both waiting for a mega-tachyon gun to charge up .. :P

Hey, th15...about the Unknown Beta colours, are they going to appear in the game in the future? Because in the bfconfig file, there's the heading "Razor Alien Colours" inside for the colour selection...

He knows. I'm pretty sure I've pointed out to him before but I never got an answer out of him. :roll: Stubborn man that he is.

The only colors that stick outside of the ship builder are the custom colors that you apply yourself.

yes but fleet color scheme > manually choosing colors for every single damn piece you have in your ship and if you change colors later, some of the ships might look odd and your custom painted ship will always look the same

Correction: 5th colour scheme is used, but only in Leviathan station.

...No, I'm pretty sure it isn't.
If it were, then the Leviathan would be white, not tan.
