I've been thinking on secondary colours for the AI to use, and this is what I've come up with.

The colours in brackets are the secondary colours the AI can choose from for a given primary. In all cases, I think it should also be able to repick the primary as the secondary (so, for example, a dark blue AI will be able to pick white or dark blue for its secondary).

If getting the AI to pick from multiple colours is not happening, the first colour in the lists below is, I think, the best one.

dark blue (white)
pale green (cream)
pink (grey)
yellow (white)
red (white, blue)
light blue (cream)
green (dark blue, white)
dark green (orange)
blue (white, red)
cream (white)
mauve (white)
purple (pink, white)
orange (light blue)
brown (yellow)
grey (orange, yellow, red)
white (red, yellow, dark blue)

Thanks, I'll put this in the code. I'll probably make a list of four secondary colours for each primary colour, and have the AI choose a random one from that; the preferred colour would then be listed twice to have a higher chance.

Few updates.

Added tabs to break up the special colours and to get under the 32 active elements limit.
I have yet to add the code for the tabs, changing tab works though. :D

Current list of items*
Code:
Main Window
 - Global Company Colours

Rail Vehicle Tab
 - Steam Engine
 - Diesel Engine
 - Electric Engine
 - Monorail Engine
 - Maglev Engine
 - Diesel Multiple Unit
 - Electric Multiple Unit

Road Vehicle Tab
 - Bus
 - Tram
 - Truck

Sea Vehicle Tab
 - Passenger Ship
 - Freight Ship

Air Vehicles Tab
 - Plane
 - Helicopter
 - Zeppilen


* - this list is what I've put on the gui and is subject to change.
patchman can decide if any items should be added or removed.

Is a separate entry for zeppelins really useful? In that case, freight and passenger planes might have different liveries too.

Personally, I'd get rid of the "Zeppelin" entry, and instead split regular planes into three categories, one for small airports (no idea what to call it, "Regional aircraft"?), one for large airports, and freight planes.

Otherwise I like the look of it, except that the borders around the elements are bit thin; look how far the buttons are from the edges in TTD's windows and try to reproduce that look.

Lakie, what was the steam locomotive in your posted screenshot? I don't recognize it.

patchman:
Ok, I'll modify the list just before I got to bed.
Yeah, I being thinking they are alittle to close to the edges of the window too... I'll look at changing it.

Peter1138:
Does it really matter if it has window in the title?
But I'll remove it, if just to keep you happy. :D

krtaylor:
It's the 2-4-0 'Pacific', from Pikka's UK Renewal Set.
Which might I add it great as it has some vehicles support two company colours.
Such as the above locomotive. :D

Pikka:
Sorry must have missed them while tpying the list, they should be in that list yes.

I'll post the updated list later with the total number of elements left per tab.
And how many elements each entry takes.

I'll try and code the tabs to work fully with click code, this weekend in most lightly hood, due to time constrants.

Oh whoops, I didn't realise he was referring to the latest picture.. yes, that's the 4-6-2 'Pacific' (aka Gresley A4).

I'm liking the look of the gui. :D Maybe simply "small airliners" and "large airliners" for the aircraft?

I would probably use "Long-range aircraft" instead of "Express aircraft".

That looks s*** Lakie! No really, it does!

Now TTDPatch is really getting to a point where it can kick Locomotions arse for some of the bigger features it boasts.

Long live TTDPatch!

Aegir:
Probably not?

Been fixing a few bugs in the global part of the gui.
Such as changing other companies colours allowing special CC's to be used. :o

Hopefully, with all the global stuff fixed, I can try working on the special colour schemes.
I might also fix the exploit shown here.

Small problems have occured though with saving loading code, so I might not be able to test all the special cases yet. (I need patchman's help on how to fix his player2 array saving / loading code).

[edit] And I'm also thinking about making the tab button's icons changable via grf, with 2cc remapping, if possible.
I'll have to ask patchman about grf support, thats something new to me. :D
