Changing Color[edit | edit source]

While the Color Gun is equipped, Right to choose one of the 16 preset color themes. The preset color for each theme can be edited, but doing so will also update all buildings which use that theme. The top-left color theme is the default orange and blue that all buildings start with. Changing this theme changes all unpainted buildings.

Each color theme consists of two colors. In the right-click menu, the player can use the sliders to edit each color, which uses the HSV color space. By clicking on the numbers on the right side a number can be manually entered.

A building aimed by the color gun will be highlighted. The paint cursor at the center of the game window indicates whether the current target can be painted: if it is paintable, it shows the paint bucket icon with a drop. If not, it will show a 'X' beside the paint cursor.

Current issues[edit | edit source]

  • When using a paint gun, it will cause the engineer's running speed to slow down for a brief moment, then resumes back to normal running speed.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • A color cartridge will be consumed even if the engineer aimed at nothing or painted a building with the same colors it already had.
  • Sometimes the color won't change instantly and will have a few seconds of delay.
  • Despite its description, it cannot paint vehicles, not even by changing the default color scheme. Train cargo containers will have the color of the current station for the load/unload animations until the animation finishes, after which their color reverts.
  • The original values of the default (orange and blue-grey) color scheme are (16, 0.93, 0.95) for the orange and (232, 0.57, 0.26) for the blue-grey.
