Sometimes it seems more like a dark brown or dark grey.

Zira's full wetsuit is more of a light Shamu the whale style color than solid black.

You aren't wrong, the blacks I have seen on the colour pallet are all just dark tones of another colour. From what I can tell it is either a dark grey, dark grey with a blue hint or a dark brown colour, no true black.

Perhaps it is like that so we don't get lost with our ships while in sector space! <.< >.>

Seriously though I would not have thought it was a serious oversight by the devs, perhaps it is a fault of the graphics engine that interprets a solid or matt black as an absence of colour and throws a fit because of t, I don't know, perhaps if a dev is reading his thread they can through some light on it as to why there is no matt flat black in the colour pallet for us to use?

well, just look at the forums...i had to get a stylish plugin installed to get it back the way - and color - it was before they 'improved' it

I actually was never bothered by the color change. Then again, I'm always that odd one out.

to be fair, solid black tends to make things look like the texture is missing.

afaik, its an established cg artist trick to use dark grey over solid black to make the texture look 'real'.
