Whats dis??

"Wait, you can't make gradients in SimplePlanes right?"
"That must be Photoshopped."
"Oh, he scripted it."

All three statements above are wrong.

It can be done.
It is not photoshopped.
And I didn't script it.


How?

So what you are looking at is 100 parts with 100 different colours. I did all of this manually, so it was quite a pain. But now that it is holiday for me I got loads of time.
You can actually use more than the 15 colours that you can see in the designer. This way I made 100 different grey scales reaching from #000000 to #FFFFFF. This is how to add more colours to your build:
1) Open your aircraft in the designer and select the "custom" colour palette.
2) Open the XML file and go to <Theme name="Custom">
3) At the end of the list of colours make another colour by copying one of the colours above. Give this the colour you want in Hex.
4) Count on what line this new colour is relative to the other colours (first colour is line 1, second is line 2, 8th is line 8 etc).
5) Go back to the Designer in SP, select the part you want to be your custom colour.
6) Change the material of the part to the number you counted to in step 4.
7) Now it should be done, if it isn't just try again from step 1.


Remember I did this one hundred times, I hope that earns me your upvote xD.

    I’ve run out of colors on multiple builds, so thanks for figuring this out, I suppose it’s an interface issue, vice an actual limitation of the game.

    On mobile you just have to use the custom paint and make each one a shade lighter, Ive done something similar with some of my planes but since I don’t have many paint options I can’t do as many.
