Enabling this will automatically paint white over the entire panel when you play a new game.
Different panels call for different moods and colors, plus the sand-like color adds a certain charm to the site.
I agree with YNM. I color most of my panels a different color than the yellow but every panel white is even more boring than every panel yellow. The yellow adds a bit more depth than white would.
A fill button tied to the active color, though, would be a fantastic addition.
A little OT, and hesitant to raise this as a suggestion if I've missed abundant discussion, but is there some rationale to the limited color palette in general?
On the one hand it does make for some interesting adaptations, and may even unify the look of the site a bit, but it does tend to get a bit frustrating.
Would there ever be thought given to allowing uploads of images (within certain size limits) in PNG and or JPG format? Or would that disadvantage those without their own preferred graphics tools and programs?
Afterthought: I realize in retrospect that would greatly add to the temptation to cheat more obviously in certain ways... and possible raise some IP issues if people were to submit what amounted to photo collages and direct conversions from existing art... then again I've been wondering about those issues anyway, given the tendency of many games to veer into regions of branded, trademarked and otherwise "protected" images and characters.
Can well understand that there are some very good reasons to limit the tools to something that forces a mostly hand-drawn approach, with visual references being mainly limited to drawings based on the references users find in the allotted time.
@ebbixx, just trust me, we've been through a LOT of discussion about color pallet : P
The recap would be, several colors were removed, and after much complaining they were returned. It's the site's intention to keep the drawing tools as basic as possible... we had to fight for 2 shades of each color. and when i say basic, i mean we have it good right now.
At first this is horribly restricting and frustrating. But, frankly I think it makes the crazy good art even more amazing. If there was a hexadecimal selector and saturation knob you'd figure the drawer knew some magic you didn't and it adds to the mystery of the piece. As is, everyone has the same tools, and some people do absolutely amazing things with it.
@KxRook - Thanks for confirming what I kinda suspected would be the case... and for the most part I agree. The one place I see an offline option being an advantage would be the heartbreak of image loss... have to assume that may drive a few people away in short order, but it is what it is.
