@ Happytime, I've not tried saving it to favourites so thanks for the suggestion, I'll try it next time I'm playing.

@Pam, good to know it's not just me, it the favourites thing doesn't work I'll just give up on it.

Helen, I think I'll go ahead and see for myself, too.

I've not noticed my "fave" colors shifting values, but then I've not really paid super-close attention to them (i.e., putting actual values in and comparing them over game sessions).

I'll be surprised if they wander once saved to "Favorites" but you never know.  :)

I really don't think the game tracks or attaches saved values to "Fave Color" yet ... it's just one of the three "favorite things" most humans have, so it makes sense for the Sims to discuss them.

There are multiple ways in computing environments of keeping track of "color" and "color spaces," but the programming behind comparing "nearby" or "comparative / close" colors is pretty complex.

I'm more inclined to believe it has to do with how well they get along with other sims. I've often seen when they talk "about interests" (directly translated), favourite colour is often the topic.

I agree Swede.

I'm thinking there's code for each Sim to be able to "discuss" / "chat" about at LEAST three things with new acquaintances: Fave Music, Fave Food, Fave Color.

I've not paid that much attention to the Sim's conversations with each other enough to really notice. I do know I see them yapping (frequently) about those three values with new acquaintances, and I have noticed some "double-plus friendly increase" for relationship for the same music genre, but I've not seen it happen yet for colors.

Which either means it's there (and I missed it), it's NOT there, or my Sim is bugged.  ;)

I added a link on my original entry on page one to a webpage that has hex codes for practically every color you can imagine.  I thought it might be helpful to some of our builders.  :)

Lol, I know.  It has given me inspiration for a whole new bunch of names for my Sims, too.  And their clothes will be coded to be the same color as their names.  I currently have a set of twins named Chartreuse and Shamrock Holmes, and their respective clothing is colored to match the names.  It makes me laugh.  I've got a page full of names and codes...  reds, purples, blues, yellows.  All set and ready for my Dynasty family!  :D

I don't know about everyone else, but though my favorite color is vibrant and bright, I don't use that exact color when decorating my house, though I do buy clothes and things in that color.  My friend who's favorite color is red doesn't have a bright red dining room, but does have a gorgeous deep red on the walls.  When I do use my favorite color decorating my home, I tend to use a muted tone of it so it looks less in your face and more comfortable.   I treat my sims the same way.

I tone it down, too.  Mostly I use color in my Sims clothing to help me tell them apart from a distance.  They get their cars in those colors too.  My Dynasty family has a theme of colors being the names of the heirs.  I've got Nectarine and Indigo Dreamweaver and their clothes are nectarine color and indigo respectivly.  I'm enjoying it this way because just using my Sims colors over and over was getting boring.

See, here's Indigo Dreamweaver dressed in her indigo colored clothes:



I like it a lot!

You're welcome!  I've used it several times, too.  I got the color for Nectarine's wedding gown from that site.  ;D

Is that two zeros at the end, or two letter ohs?  The number or the letter?

Don't think this has been mentioned yet but I suggest downloading the instant eyedropper.  I first downloaded it to use with the FB Graffiti app because I can't be bothered to mix colours but I use it more on the Sims now.

If ever you see a colour on a web page or um... anything that you want, you just drag the icon from the tray and it comes up with a hex code.  It copies it to your clipboard but you can't CTRL+V into the game so just paste it to something else and copy it in.  I use it a LOT.

I love eyedropper tools. They're great for picking up colors from everywhere.

When I'm using Sims' favorite colors for decorating, I try to pick different shades within the color scope, rather than use the exact hex. For example, in mine and my partner's self-sim family, there are three sims that like lilac and two that like orange. Of the three sims that like lilac, one uses a palette quite close to the game's original hex, one uses a very muted mauve that's very close to white, and one uses something in between lilac and purple. Of the two sims that like orange, one uses orange very close to the game color, and one uses a bright yellowy orange that I combine with black. I also try to combine the favorite colors of my couples in their rooms in all my games. In one game I have a bedroom that mixes red, blue and purple decor to fit with the favorites of the sims that use it (the red is the accent). I used to play a web breeding game that was a lot about the art of hex code combining, and I learned how to make colors look good together there. Some colors naturally lend themselves to each other (red and green, blue and orange, yellow and purple) and getting the others to fit is hard, but can be done. If you want to combine two colors that usually don't look good together, changing the shades of the colors will often do the trick. I'll post some examples later that I hope will help builders and decorators, but I'm getting a little burned out, so it will have to wait for today.

If you're talking about the favorite colors in the game, they are found on the first page of this thread.

Wow! Thanks Pam, that site you linked to is amazing, it will be so helpful. I am the type of person who colour-codes everything, clothes, room styles, anything! Also it's really good because I spend forever trying to get the right colour in game  :)
