    So, I have been using skittles basic race template in an attempt to bring to life a personal project. I want to put a crest on the head of a character that will change colour alongside the underwear. I basically want to know how the game knows what pixels to change, what to colour to make them and how I can use that to my advantage.

    In the species file you will see something like this
    "bodyColor" : [
        //RUSTY RED
        { "e0975c" : "BE471B", "a85636" : "8f2a0b", "6f2919" : "63230f" },
    Those numbers and letters are actually hex color codes for example

    will be changed to BE471B

    So to understand it think of it like this
    "color in image" : "change to this color"
    So the image in question is the image in the humanoids folder for various body parts.
    Each line is square brackets is 1 full set of color changes.

        { "e0975c" : "BE471B", "a85636" : "8f2a0b", "6f2919" : "63230f" },
    The Rusty red part is only a comment and doesn't need to be added.
    It just helps people know quickly what color set that is without having to look it up.

    Any line with2 forward slashes is a comment and ignored by the game.
