Text Formatting Codes List

Color codes are used everywhere on Improbable Island. If you want to get that perfect color for that special occasion, then you've come to the right place.

For reference, the list appears to be in order of appearance from left to right, top to bottom on the American keyboard.

The columns of BOLD CAPITAL LETTERS represent where the tag is usable - Commentary, Bios, Dwelling Exterior, Dwelling Interior.

In addition, keep in mind that you can change your default color in the chats and in the Jungle/Quests permanently by employing /chatcol [color code here, no gravemark] and /talkcol [color code here, no gravemark] commands, respectively, in any chat box.

Character Sample Name Hex Value Chat? Bio? Ext? Int? Comments/Notes
` ` Grave Y Y Y Y "` "Shows up as a standard grave mark (`) in commentary, unless you place it at the end of a line.1) Typing an additional ` in front of a full color code2) allows you to show the color code instead of using it, to show newer players how to use color in chat.
,, ` Double comma - Y Y Y Y The double comma works exactly the same as a grave mark (`). In fact, the system is basically replacing ",," with "`". Designed to assist those on mobile and can't seem to find a grave mark on their phone.
`0 Y Y Y Y This tag will end the last color used. Use this if you've changed the color and want to go back to default. This will work in rollovers, bios, places and commentary.3)

See http://improbableisland.com/writingtool.php for checking your coding! A great help to avoid timing out when updating bios or Places.

1) It will mysteriously display a "`0
2) ``L for example
3) Do not use for item customization, however as it is known to cause issues!
4) Such as when you try to emote in Player Chat.
5) It will work, however, in your name/title. For some reason it can still be used there.
6) For instance, if you'd like to hide your name and use a title changer to make a new name, you can roleplay two completely different characters on the same account
7) Possibly distracts?
8) Incidently, hotlink to this whole page: tinyurl.com/improbable-colors
9) http://tinyurl.com/IslandColors works for this page too.
10) Island/color word combination monopoly!
11) looks like someone has Photoshop! Yay! This is originally what I wanted to do, buuut, no Ps on this computer. Very well done!-Nadyanilo
12) Nope, just Excel, and far too much time on my hands. Oh, and Paint.net for making it into a picture. -Buddleia
13) Out of date, but still pretty useful.
