Please I'm begging you: 16 more colors

makecode mods is there any possible way I can I have multiple colors for my projects like a extra 16 more pixels :pensive: :pensive: :pensive: :pensive: just like… like… I like… just like… like… like… like the like button… and I’m like asking for more colors not because I need a bigger a color pallet for more unique colors… NO! I need some more colors to make the game look better than the 16 bit mario 3, I already beat mario 1 and sonic 1 combined in terms of grapical quality already with half the colors so… PLEASE is there a way for more colors :pleading_face: :pleading_face: :pleading_face: :pleading_face: :pleading_face:


there is not a very easy way to add more colors because the screen is 4 bit. also, Super Mario Bros. 3 is 8 bit not 16 bit

I meant Mario 3 on the super Mario all-stars collection, not the og game on the nes

No never not in a million years


Limits spark creativity!


16 == 2^4

4 + 4 == 8 bits == 1Byte, thus 1 Byte can represent color for 2 pixel

if 16 more, 5 bits is needed for 1 pixel, other 3 bits are wasted.

so, be brave, ask for 256 - 16 == 240 more colors :grinning: :grinning: :grinning:


you can use the color extension to change the color palette mid-game, so-

wait, do you know how to make your own color palette for a game?
if you do, ok then! use the color fading extension for the ability to change your color palette mid game!

You could just set the screen size so big that you can’t see individual pixels and only use red, blue, and green in different combinations to make any color you need.

That is extremely convoluted… but it might actually work :thinking:
