I am looking at both the tutorial and the actual files and I am wracking my mind trying to see the pattern of the colors...

I am starting to think there is none but I know that there must be a difference between some of them...

Someone heed by prayers... What the heck am I doing color wise for primary and secondary materials?


I am going through all the colors one by one and making sorta a color line so I can find the correct colors easily

Update 2:

It shouldn't be a problem anymore... now all I have to deal with is item allignment

The four materials in a picture are defined by M1-M4. Each of those uses up 15 colors on the palette.

0-190 are non-changing colors.

Look up a tutorial on HTML color systems to understand the 0-FF system.

They're using the same ideology, yes. However, it's using a 256-color palette so you can't just assume one more number past dark red is darker red. It could be tan! Or white! Or green! But not pink, nobody likes pink. (okay it can be pink)

once you get the hang of it, it is a lot easier to use numbers than "reddish-green-with-an-orange-tint" or something. I don't see how you could make it easier than 000000-FFFFFF
