I would really love an option for "auto-painting" :

- Pre-select a paint color scheme

- Place a building, wall, etc.

- New object has the color you selected.

- Paint is deducted from your inventory.

This saves the steps of switching to the paint gun and individually painting each and every object. The paint gun will still be useful for fine-tuning desired colors.

Imagine selecting a color, building a small factory, and then switching to another color for another factory. It would make color-coding factories (or even sections of factories) very easy, and far less tedious than having to individually paint each object.

Good news! This is already possible. Right click while the colour gun is equipped, and you can change the preset colour scheme. Update the preset and select your scheme, and all existing buildings will be the new colour, in addition to new buildings matching your new scheme.

Unless I'm missing something, this solution is not.. Satisfactory ;)

Here's why: If i build a new factory, as I place new objects, they are always set to the default color. I can change the default color scheme, yes, and that changes *all* objects using that color.

But that's not what I want.

I want to pick a palette, build a factory, pick a different palette, and build another factory. The two factories stay the colors I chose before I built them, which are different for each factory. Does that make more sense?

*Am I* missing something? Is this already possible? I don't think it is.

To clarify further, I want new factories, as i build them, to be the color i've chosen them, without having to use the paint gun on each and every object to change which palette they're using.
