An odd question

I have a very important question. Did a few searches through this forum and the Iacon forum, but I just can't find the answer in older posts.

...Is it still even possible to create the color orange in the edit character options? :shock:

I see alts in the list that come with the color, but I can't for the life of me create it on my own with the options provided. I have a pillow ready in case I need to face plant upon getting an obvious answer.

Also, you see some pretty amazing things when you type "making orange" into the "search forum" area :lol:

I have been. I just can't figure out the combination.

The best I've been able to come up with is 2-6-6, but that's still not the same color as that which comes on some of the default alts. What I'm wondering is if there is a combination that makes a bright orange color (say the shade of the tiger predator alt, for example) or if those alts came with the color and the option isn't available to manually create with the options available.

If it is possible, does anyone know the combination? I've been trying all day :lol:

Seeing your picture compared to how mine looks at that setting, I'm actually wondering if it's just the brightness on my computer in general. :shock: Mine looks solid dark brown at that setting.

Thank you for posting that! =)

All good :lol: Thank you for trying :MAXIMAL: It was worth a shot to ask.

No problem.

It's one of those weird glitchy things about this game.
I don't remember why we have the weird radio button color select system when we could just enter the hex code. :KREMZEEK:

266 is the brightness orange. for whatever reason the choices are sparse in the red/orange/yellow region but then more green/blue/purple choices.
