Something I spend probably too much time on when making textures and levels is what colors I should use.

This thread is a kind of poll, where every once in a while I might post new sets of colors and you guys can say which you like or dislike, and if you want, more details on why you like or dislike them.

All I ask is that some of you go through the sets of colors and make a post saying 'yes' or 'no' for each one (and like I said, if you want to please tell me why).

Hopefully others can use this thread to their advantage (even to post their own color schemes) as well if they're picky as me with coloring. :P

Number 3 is a scheme I would like to use in a level. Think three-fold maze with the pale blue floor and light green ramps (with no color in particular to replace the yellow walls :P). As trim, I'm thinking the shade of grey from 8 (or 4).

It's hard to say yes or no to any of these, especially since the ingame own graphics engine will most certainly twist things around. Likewise choosing just based on some colors is going to be difficult because I don't know the level style/skybox/etc.

I do agree that it's hard on what textures to use when making levels because I find myself going to the more popular options. I just end up choosing less frequently used textures just to even things out, but I do use popular ones quite a fair bit.

Imo it would be good to see a color scheme like 10/11 in a future level (as well as 3 like you mentioned) because I don't think very many custom levels have actually used color combinations similar to that.

I personally don't have a big problem with any of the color schemes on the list, but I would say go with the most creative options you have. It'd be interesting to see what kind of levels you can make when you have these different concepts. ;)

I'll try using the 11th in a level, it can look very sweet with the adequate textures.

You forget a thousand things everyday. Make sure Marble Blast isn't one of 'em.
