    Increase paint options

    Would like to see some more primary color paint options; specifically, a darker shade of all the colors present.

    Presently in concrete texture we get

    • Blue
    • Brown
    • Green
    • Grey
    • Orange
    • Pink
    • Purple
    • Red
    • Yellow

    and
    • Dark Grey
    • Dark Red



    Would definitely like to see this filled out. Pastel variants would also be welcome.

    The problem is that textures cost memory whether they're used by the player or not, more textures means more memory usage.

    7 more textures and I'm happy.

    Technically I could do with 5 if I accept that purple is a dark pink. Drywall blue is light blue, so now we're looking at just 4 more textures.

    textures still a work in progress for TFP. MM already says that we will have more textures on A17. Maybe in the future we can have much more textures

    I'm not sure if additional colors count towards the texture limit. It might be different then say the texture for a gun as colors are basically just a numeric value that is then rendered.

    paint is limited to 255 options max, unless they change the data type used

    Paint is also just a texture, it would need a different system to make it use color values rather than a texture (like, say, the tints)
