One of my favorite hex colors is "Slate Gray":
I'm currently trying to make a character for the first time in Terraria, and I've found that the 'blue' value for color is prevented from being very low; further experimentation indicates that the more likely case is that the sum of the RGB values must be >= 254.
This makes a heap of hex colors unobtainable.
Why does Terraria limit the character color pallete like this? Are there any workarounds?
I'm aware that clothing color will become largely meaningless as soon as I get some armor, but it's the principal of the thing that irks me.
