Usage[]

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 objects which use that theme. The top-left color theme is the default "orange and blue" theme 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. Or, by clicking on the numbers on the right, a number can be manually entered. Here, a custom-defined HSV color space is used, which is different from the common HSV color space. A building being targeted 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 an 'X' beside the paint cursor.

Non-paintable objects[]

Hidden color slots[]

There are two color slots which cannot be changed in-game, but can be changed with 3rd-party save editors or mods. Altering these changes the default color of Foundations and Pipelines respectively, which do not follow the first color slot's color like other buildings.

Fuel[]

Color Cartridges can also be used as a fuel for vehicles. At 900 MJ, it is the 3rd most energy efficient non-radioactive fuel item in the game after  Batteries (6000 MJ) and  Packaged Turbofuel (2000 MJ). It can't be used as a fuel for Biomass Burner or other generators though.

AWESOME Sink[]

 Color Gun can be sunk into the AWESOME Sink.png AWESOME Sink to yield 860 points.
 Color Cartridge can be sunk into the AWESOME Sink.png AWESOME Sink to yield 10 points.

Current issues[]

  • If running when firing a Paint Gun, run will briefly be disabled (this may be countered using a Jetpack or jumping as flight speed will be unaffected).
  • Changing the first (default) color slot in the preset menu will change the initial color of all buildings except Pipelines. Pipelines remain orange while Pipeline Supports change color.
  • The HUB, Miners, and Water Extractors won't fully change color; parts will remain the default color scheme.
  • The Equipment Workshop and Craft Bench can't change color since Update 4.
  • Sometimes the color won't change instantly and will have a few seconds of delay.
  • Changing foundation color can sometimes cause a it to become temporarily invisible.
  • Changing hand item while reloading can result in a floating color cartridge animation.
  • 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.

Trivia[]

  • A color cartridge will be consumed even if the pioneer aimed at nothing or painted a building with the same colors it already had.
  • Contrary to its description, it cannot paint vehicles, not even by changing the default color scheme.
