Posting this thread has almost certainly taken care of that. It's obvious that they do read the forums.

You could also PM it to a dev. Pick the one you think is most likely to be associated with the character creator, and ask them to pass it on if you guessed wrong.

Then you KNOW it's gotten to them.

Oh, and, even though I'm not colorblind,

/bump ... this for official attention.

One thing I noticed that CO also lacks this feature (regardless of the fact that it has tons of feaetures in its UI that STO people have been begging for, for ages, like the ability to "Freeze" the character you are creating so it stops fidgeting, or the larger, more visible mouse pointer ... so on).

By the way, if your avatar is your character, then that hair is a pretty good light brown!

Some sort of text based label for the color would be a good idea to add to help colorblind players.

Lots of colors would be hard to label. There are many colors for some palettes, so maybe just a hue label? (Red, Orange, etc)


Any other ideas?

Grab a copy of rgb.txt from X? Some ~750 named colours. Pick whatever's closest.

The short term solution would be to just show the Red, Green, Blue values of the boxes in a tooltip.

1) "192 64 0".
2) "221 109 91"
3) "255 190 164"

Later on, this could be extended to add the name of the color to the tooltip as well, if it matches a particular, named color.

For example:
1) "Mahogany (192 64 0)".
2) "Light Mahogany (221 109 91)"
3) "Very Light Mahogany (255 190 164)"

... so on.

Two Options Please. These would display when there is any option to chose colors (on character creation, at tailors, during starship modifications):

1. Display color name (red,green,yellow, etc.)
2. Display RGB values.

These are not "must" options, but they would be nice. Too bad I don't have a HUD that shows me what colors are what in real life .
