official colors for trains/stations

Post by facade11663 » Fri Jan 11, 2019 9:35 pm

TL;DR
item based train colors for the standardizing stickler
What ?
most of us use trains to carry mass quantities of one item. to represent train groups we have RGB color sliders but that can feel too broad for the one and done. if you could select an item to "theme" your train, it would feel more official than guess and check with the RGB sliders even if it is just an RGB autoset

this also dose not have to be an in game option ether. just a list in the forums of official train colors would be nice to reference
Why ?
a uniform standard looks nicer so anyone joining a server can say "ah there goes an empty iron plate train" and if people want to customize that is fine

+1
add the most common colors for raw materials like iron, copper
and custom labels for more rare application

for example my supply trains are dark blue
and the sulfuric acid trains are toxic yellow

May be icons for stations like it was done by blueprints?
