|No, you sum up the differences in each individual colour. 255 0 0 and 0 0 255 would have a difference of 510. |
Ahh, I misunderstood your answer. That might work if the number were big enough to truly be a difference yet leave enough area to give us choices. I agree that its annoying since everytime I try to pick a color that I think will be different, I either have another race with a very similar color or it is one that does not show up very well.
AngelWyrm: Thats a nice looking program but the problem we are talking about is not finding a color we like, it is finding one that will not be used by one of the other races once you get into the game. Our solution would be to have the other races not be able to use a color close to the one we choose.
