    These are both quotes from Mr. Evil on the Atari forums.

    Then you'd just have to code the GUI to have three sliders (RGB) and these would affect the constantcolour's properties, won't they? Then you'd be able to affect the colour of the car skins, witout discolouring things like glass or ads! Completely customisable skins and you won't have to include all of these pre-made skins! For hose with two or more colours to change just add extra sliders and extra constant colours and combiners!

    yeah thats like theres only 2 different matching colours on the unwheel vehicles isnt there... but what springs to mind now is like the different 'effects' of changing the colour, which was preselected by the vehicles author... and also the volkswagen car has these different textures on it too... maybe it now means we can focus on providing new texture patterns instead of just different colours like in beta 3, and the user can select the colours... maybe even a colour randomizer would be cool, some days people cant make up their minds...
    this would be like what Electronic Arts did with their porshce 2000 game , they had different themes of decals for the cars and you had to choose your colour...

    The concept is sound, except, if you simply mask the areas on the skin where the constantcolor goes, meaning you still have to have the original texture. The way it would simplify is in the number os textures you would need. It is worth pursuing:)
