Coloring Cars (And other entities) Similar to Trains

Post by Shakar »

Hello, this mod request I would assume is simple to the more experienced but I'm not much of a coder to really know what to look for this one.

Basically, I'd like a mod that replaces the current way cars and other entities with a similar method are colored. Instead of having them change their color once you enter/place them, I would like to have the option to color them in a similar method that trains are colored with the color sliders. This way you can have the entities (That can be colored) in the color of your choice without needing to reset the color of it or overwrite the color you had it as, very much like how the train color is handled.

Been a while since I messed with colors, but I don't believe it's possible to change the color of a car when someone is riding it - it's always the color of the driver. If the car is empty you can change it just fine, but it'll change once someone gets back in and stay that color until they get out and it's either forcibly changed or someone else drives it.

That is why I'm trying to request a mod that will change that behavior to be the same coloring behavior as trains.

Having the option to keep them certain colors you set like trains is what I'm aiming for with the request.

This almost certainly isn't possible with the current API, you'd have to request the devs to add it.
