Prop Painter 4.0 + PaintUI

Prop Painter allows you to paint props. It's like Painter, but for Props, so it's Prop Painter.

PaintUI, which is a key component of this mod, is a Move It extension that allows the current Move It selection to be painted if you have the corresponding painting mod (this includes buildings and props only at the moment). If I ever have time, I would love to add functionality for trees and networks, but unfortunately I do not have time to add these changes right now.
Recommended Mods for PaintUI include:
Painter or Repaint (use only one!)

Where to find the button
It's in the Move It "More Tools" menu (the upward arrow). It should be at the very top. If it's not there you haven't enabled the mod or you're using an old version of move it.

This mod is compatible with
All of my mods.
81 Tiles
Move It (obviously)
And more!

Thanks to
Boformer for answering tons of stupid questions from me
TPB for giving me color picker code that worked (and the original painter mod from which I took inspiration)
Quboid and kjmci for testing the mod
hydra and deeheks for ideas on mod button placement
pardeike for creating Harmony which I rely upon entirely for the existence of this mod

All of my colors reset!
You may have subscribed to a mod or asset ingame, or created a custom theme mix (which dynamically creates a new mod ingame, thereby triggering the reload function). I am working on a solution to this problem and will try to push out a fix sometime soon.

To those who are coding-inclined: I believe the cause of this issue is the game trying to load serialized data while the game is running (causing a nullreference). Hypothetically, this will be a very simple fix- simply adding a check to make sure that data is not loaded over existing data should do the trick. Unfortunately, this does nothing for saves that are already corrupted. If you know of a solution to this secondary problem, please tell me in the comments. Thank you!

@[YDK]Syphon -- Losing previous "painting" is caused by subscribing/unsubscribing workshop items while the game is running. Also, you mentioned "reload". I hope you don't mean exiting to the main menu, then loading the game again. You must exit to the desktop every time.

You can read more about this here.

@WangYinX1, same for me, on reload, all colors revert to original. Haven't found the cause / mod conflict yet.

@Gabrielium -- I'm still not able to copy/paste. I've looked at everything I know to look at and absolutely cannot get it to work.

Recently, whenever I reload the game, items that have been colored are restored to their original colors.The trouble is that I haven't received any error reports, so I don't know how to fix the problem.

@Gabrielium -- I know this hasn't been updated since Oct 2020, but all of a sudden, today, the copy/paste isn't working properly. I changed an object to a brownish color, clicked copy, but when I attempt to paste it to another object, it's not doing it. I can't image what would be causing this.

If you have a chance, can you take a look and see if you can identify anything in my game log?
I'm on Mac, so my Mod Compatibility Report is built-in.

Let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks so much! :suan:

Damn okay, luckily not many props are affected and hopefully I should be able to use Repaint instead.

Yes, unless you want to go back to the old version of the save.

So If I have subscribed to an asset in-game which reset the colours, it's impossible to fix that save now?

Hello! Select a building or prop in Move It, and then use the color picker to change its color field value (which may change the roof, but may also change other parts of the building or prop). You can use the copy and paste buttons to copy and paste colors between different buildings or props.

Dumb question but how do you use this? I am able to get to the color palette but how do I apply the color to the roof of a building, for example? I am only presented with the buttons Copy & Paste. Lets say I want to turn the roof of a workshop asset green, what steps do I need to go through?
