For your enjoyment and the enjoyment of others, I have stayed up until 6 am creating a Color Code list for anyone who needs it.

It all started when I was trying to think of a new pallate for my character at about 2 or 3 am. Then I realized that I needed to see the colors to pick correctly. And instead blundering around on my keyboard looking for the perfect colours, I made a fucking chart.

SO hopefully others will get a kick out of this too. There was so much copying, pasting, resizing, uploading, kicking Photobucket. I'm just glad that I know my keyboard shortcuts.

And no, I will not make a Wiki page about that either.

Be happy. I'll even link it for you. Lazy bastards.

A Real Link.

After the insane flurry of activity today, there's one last change I was considering, but this may be too many field on a little graph thing - A standard comparison of where each color/tag is usable? There doesn't appear to be a checkmark/X icon system we can use, so all I can imagine is using smilies, which might not look great. This would also make the graph EVEN LARGER, which may not be good.

Example:

(Definitely needs better icons. Comparing yellow to yellow to yellow...)

After looking at your improvements to the page, it seems that I don't have the knack for making Wiki guides O.o lol. At least I have a good general idea XD.

Great work btw. How did you ever find the actual color codes ? (the numbered codes)

I agree, we need coloured dots or something. The only thing I can think of is adding a colordot file to photobucket and linking it. But this page has a crap load of linking as it is.... hmmmm.

I'm magic.
No, they're just listed in the CSS file.

Couple of things we can maybe use for this: Wikidot list of Improbable colours and the image (with the right background) that I made of it. That also has a hotlink, tinyurl.com/iicolors, for linking in-game.

The former was removed by Zolo when I added it in (Apparently some tags on the list there cause issues, though I think they've been removed judging by the CSS), and the latter is at the bottom of the page already.

The wikidot one was probably removed because it mentions the now defunct font-codes which were only ever half-implemented. I'm glad this is on the wiki though, it's definitely something we needed.

Z said it was because it had the font ones, which broke a bunch of shit and look like they were removed shortly after. The new wiki page should have just about all the information needed, plus the new graph for where things can be used.
